Finally! A luxury tender.

April 11, 2019

The Walker Bay Venture 14 claims to be 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 a number of fun and interesting activities such as exploring, fishing, diving or snorkelling, towing sports like skiing or tubing, driving and relaxing.
The builder has 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. 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.
The Venture 14 is scheduled to begin shipping to Canadian dealers in May. The V14 with Pedestal
Console Boat should come in just over $25K Cdn while the V14 with side seat console aims just over
26K. Power and taxes etc. additional, of course. Check the video here.
