The Venture Family of Sport Tenders

The Venture is the World’s First Luxury Sport Tender. It is designed for yacht owners and operators who want to get the most out of their time on the water, entertain their guests in comfort, and consider the tender an extension of the yacht.

The Venture 16. The True Luxury Sport Tender.

For any cruiser, the Venture 16 is the quickest and easiest way of getting around and transporting people, 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 dedicated sport boats into a stylish and very comfortable design. These features will help you and your guests enjoy the activities you are passionate about.

First Class Comfort & Ergonomics

The Venture 16 is the only 16′ tender that offers so many versatile driving positions. The “Stand Up” console with flip up bolster, deep heel recess, hydraulic tilt steering and top mount throttle give the driver three separate driving positions. A true comfortable Stand Up driving position is important for comfort especially in rough conditions. You also get better visibility if you can stand or sit in an elevated position.

The rear seat in the Venture 16 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. The flip up bolster on the passenger side gives the passenger different seating options and frees up deck space.
