What John is saying is 100% true. We walked through a North Pacific 28 at the boat show last year when we were looking at buying a Ranger 29. Our feeling on the NP 28 was that is was slapped together with very little thought
. There was no comparison between a Ranger boats and a NP 28.
The Rangers are much better built, with great resale value and Ranger also provides first rate customer service, and do I need to mention that the Rangers are built in the USA, and the NP 28 is built in
I would strongly recommend any Ranger boat over anything that North Pacific builds. As you can tell, I feel very strongly about this. We have had our Ranger 29 for a year now and it has been the best boat we could have ever hoped for. We have almost 300 hours on her now and she has been very good to us.
For us the Trailerable Ranger boats are the best bang for your buck!
Best of luck with your boat shopping,
