The Venture 14. The True Explorer Sport Tender.
The Venture is the World’s First Luxury Explorer Sport Tender. It is designed for the explorer cruiser who wants to get the most out of their time on the water and considers their tender an extension of their yacht.
For any cruiser the tender is the quickest and easiest way of getting around but for many they use it for much more.
Serious cruisers, sport fishing yachts and explorers are passionate about fun and interesting activities such as exploring, fishing, diving, snorkeling, towing sports like skiing or tubing, driving, relaxing and cocktail cruising.
Something that sets the Venture apart from all other tenders is the way we integrated features you would normally find on larger tenders or dedicated sport boats into a stylish and very comfortable design to make the most out the activities you are passionate about.
First Class Comfort & Ergonomic
The Venture 14 is the only 14′ tender that offers so many versatile driving positions. The “Stand Up” console with flip up bolster, deep heel recess, tilt steering and top mount throttle give the driver three separate driving positions. A true comfortable Stand Up driving position is important if the weather gets rough while you are out exploring. You also get a better view of what is under and around the boat if you want to get up close to the shore than if you are sitting.
The rear seat in the Venture 14 is wider than any other boat in its class. The cushions are thick and the deep seats and extra legroom allow the driver and rear seat passenger to fully stretch their legs out.
