Specifically designed for the serious offshore fisherman, The 649 Ocean Ranger is the first plate offshore fishing boat released by Stacer.

The Ocean Ranger rides on Stacer’s signature Evo Advance Hull, but with a new twist.  The R&D team at Stacer have increased the dead rise on this model from the standard 13 degrees to a sharper 19 degree angle specifically for offshore conditions.  

Maintaining spray deflectors and downturned chines, The 649 Ocean Ranger presents the same smooth, stable, dry ride as any other model featuring the Evo Advance Hull.  However the 19 degree dead rise creates a sharper bow entry and a deeper V in the hull, increasing comfort for a smoother ride in harsh offshore conditions.

Fitted with a 150hp Etec and a 15 inch Rebel prop, the 649 Ocean Ranger provided a top speed of 41 MPH at 5500 RPM… not bad considering the maximum rating for this boat is 175hp.

The 649 Ocean Ranger is made from heavy duty 5mm plate aluminium and features a welded sub frame rib structure with a scupper self-draining tread plate floor. The 649 Ocean Ranger has been designed for harsh offshore conditions whilst keeping riding comfort and stability in mind.

The 649 Ocean Ranger has a long list of inclusions making it great value for money.  Standard features include a 135lt plumbed kill tank, 65lt plumbed live bait tank, alloy cutting board with 5 rod holders, Volvo Penta drop-down trim tabs, rocket launcher with 5 rod holders,  burley bucket, hydraulic steering, transom door, rear ladder, outrigger mounting plates, twin battery set-up and a 160lt underfloor fuel tank.

Released at the 2012 Media Day the 649 Ocean Ranger wowed the Media and has received outstanding reviews.  The 649 Ocean Ranger will show up on this year’s boat show circuit making its debut at Melbourne boat Show on the 5th -8th of July on New World Marine stand.

If you happen to be at the Melbourne boat show come down and have a look at the 649 Ocean Ranger you just might be surprised.

 With such a well set up package all you’ll need is some electronics and your fishing gear and you’re off.
