Wanted Arima 17-19 ft Ranger/Explorer -- FOUND ONE
« on: November 14, 2017, 03:14:46 PM »
I'm looking for an early 2000s 17-19 ft Sea Ranger/Explorer in PNW. I live in Eugene, Oregon. Cash on hand, no projects, turnkey. Any leads would be much appreciated.  Thanks, Brian

I think the guy across the street has one but is hiding it under a big canvass tent. Haven’t had the chance to check it out yet. :beerchug:

I have a 87 17' sea chaser I will be listing here in the next week. It has a 2014 90 Honda with 210 hours and I just did a lower unit change, oil change, and impeller change to get it ready for sale, a 8hp Honda kicker from mid 2000's unknown hours but runs well. Completely new wiring professionally done in 2014. Radar arch, and a 2015 EZ loader trailer with new brakes and load guides. Lowrance lsd 7 touch screen, new batteries, new trim tab hydraulic pump. Comes with Scotty automatic downriggers and a pot puller that mounts where the scottys mount. New soft top. Everything works, I took out captains chair for more deck space but still have all components. Passenger seat  has a some weathering on the seat, hydraulic steering needs a little work. Am thinking about listing it at 18000, but would consider reasonable offers. I am located in humboldt county right next to the bay. (949)606-5935 hit me up if interested. I tried attaching photos but the file size is to big. I can email photos or send them on a text if interested.

Thanks for all the responses to our queries. We have narrowed our search to a 17' Ranger or Chaser.  Lot's of older nice boats out there too, so late 80s to early 2000s would be fine if in very good condition.

You may want a 90 or newer. That is when they made the deeper chines. Otherwise the hulls are the same. I had the old chines on my 17 and when you hit waves a certain way the spray would come over the windshield. Because we kept the curtain rolled up and were standing up the spray would hit you right in the face. Is was kind of funny because if you saw the spray coming you could duck and it would miss. if but if your buddies didn’t know that they would get hit right in the face.

As for Ranger vs Chaser it depends on weather you plan to camp or sleep on the boat, if you do you’ll want a Ranger.  If it’s all about fishing the Chaser.  :twocents:

I have a 17 foot 2010 Arima Sea Ranger we are getting ready to sell.  It was purchased as new in 2013.  It has a 2013 90 hp Yamaha outboard with about a 100 hours on it.  We are in Netarts (close to Tillamook).  I would to happy to show it to you.

Sorry forgot to tell you the price.  Hopefully I am not way off but we are asking $22,995.  We are selling because it is too much boat for what we are using it for.  My wife swore we had to have a boat that was ocean capable, until she really took a close look at those breaking waves.  Oh well.  Now we use it just for crabbing in our beautiful Netarts Bay.  I am taking some more pictures and will make an official post today.

I have a 1990 19' Ranger. It has a custom half tower; baitwell; and Evinrude E-Tec 150hp motor with about 50 hours on it. I'm thinking of selling it because it doesn't really work that well for the Gulf waters that I live near. It was my grandfather's boat so I have been hesitant to sell it in the past. This isn't the greatest photo in the world but all I could find for the moment. It's been stored in high and dry storage for years. It's in very good shape. PM if interested. I would be very fair on the price. No trailer.

Dear Arima:  Please "square-off" the Hunter transom. Next, stretch the Explorer by 9 and steal 2 or 3 from the cabin.  Please hurry, I'm getting old.
