Hi Everyone,

What are the different generations of these boats (ie when they made big changes) and what were those changes?

Thanks!

What specific fisherman series are you looking at?

-619 2000-2006 are basically the same layout, 2007-2014 is when they changed the hull, flared out the front casting deck and the finishes are stainless steel compared to wood. Made the boat a little longer as well. IMO if you get anything 2007 or newer your in good shape. 2015 They switched to the FS model which has a redesign hull and interior.

-620 2000-2005 are basically the same. They changed the hull in 2007 which is considered the worst hull designed ranger created for rough water. If you look at them you can notice that they look more like a bass boat. That hull only lasted 1 year before they changed to the 08 hull which is a good hull. The 08 hull stayed the same until 2012 where they redesigned the interior and hull again. 2015 they changed to the FS hull

-621 is very similar to the 620.

I have a 1999 620 and i think that was the last year the gas tank was in the bow. And it has 2 separate battery compartments all the way in the back on each side. I have 2 batteries in each compartment so the tank in the bow balances the boat out. I actually don't mind the tank up front...it helps it get up on plane pretty quick. If you have a full tank it does make it more difficult to trim the nose up if you need it but other than that it rides pretty good. Although i have never driven a new hull to compare. I went from a Lund to a Ranger so.

I have an 02 620vs the tank is in the middle of the boat w the batteries in the rear compartments its a fast boat w gear and 2 people low 60s according to gps. My only complaint would be splash from trolling at lower speeds into chop. Seems like it has a lot of bow slap.

I have an '01 620. The gas tank is still in the bow. Must have moved tank in '02.

What bbradley said is pretty much spot on.
