The Cult Ranger Lithium Boat is both lighter and runs for longer than the standard lead battery model. The boat is the perfect sized boat for both UK and continental fishing. Reliable, compact, robust and lightweight yet with a bait capacity of between 3kg 5kg and a range of 400m - 600m.
The Ranger has the option to use the boat in both single and dual hopper configurations, we believe this is the most flexible design on the market. Using the boat in single hopper mode allows the bait and rig to be deposited in the traditional manner. However by switching to dual hopper mode the rig and bait can be dropped independently from one another opening up many more presentation options for the thinking angler. Alternatively two rigs can be taken out at once. There is also a hook/rig release system which allows your rig to be placed independently from the bait hoppers should you wish to fish on the edge of the bait for example.? Alternatively this can be used to drop a back lead before reaching the fishing spot pinning your line to the lake bed.
The 4 channel 5.8GHz radio system guarantees fault free performance in even the toughest conditions. Cult boats are the first boats in the UK to operate on this frequency. By utilising this technology the boat is completely isolated from radio interference meaning no matter how many other boats are on the lake, you will not suffer from a drop in performance.
Fully sealed when the magnetic battery covers are in place, the boat is 100% waterproof.? This means even when the weather is against you, you can get those rigs back out there straight away, confident your boat is up to the task.
- Thick 3D CAD designed, hydro-dynamically efficient trimaran PC hull gives excellent stability and buoyancy. The upper deck and the underwater part are fixed by stainless bolts, which makes maintenance very easy. The waterproof silicon gasket between the upper deck and the underwater part makes the boat hulls totally sealed and ensures the boat is 100% waterproof. The over moulded handle provides comfortable carrying.
- 8GHz 4 channel radio system- superb range and less susceptible to Interference. Boat handset range is 400m-600m depending on weather and environmental conditions. AA rechargeable batteries and handset charger comes as standard.
- Microprocessor controlled variable speed in forward and reverse. Power to the motors is regulated through a microprocessor. This ensures unrivaled maneuverability response, excellent agility and precision steering of the boat.
- Built-in fail-safe ensures the boat remains within reach. When the signal is weak, the boat will stop going forward and make a big circle. This makes the boat come back to the range you can control instead of going out of range.
- Internationally patented hopper with adjustable function, it can be divided from one hopper to two hoppers depending on requirement. Dependable hopper release system makes the hopper door maintenance and trouble free, excellent for all baits even the smallest particles. The two hoppers can be individually opened.
