Walker Bay’s New Venture 16

February 2020

Walker Bay is introducing the Venture 16 Luxury Sport RIB for Spring 2020. This new addition to the Venture line is designed for yacht owners and operators who want more out of their time on the water, to entertain their guests in comfort, and consider the tender an extension of the yacht.

The Venture 16 is built for exploring, fishing, diving and entertaining, with the high-end design and innovative features synonymous with Walker Bay’s Deluxe Console Tenders. The length and maximum horse power rating of the V16 also make it a compact and versatile runabout.

The Venture 16 offers 3 driving positions, made possible with flip-up bolster seats that give room for standing or elevated seating. The hydraulic tilt steering and top mount throttle make all three positions comfortable. The wide rear seat with dual flip-up bolsters give the driver and passenger a comfortable ride.

Integrated features you would normally find on dedicated sport boats are included in the Venture 16 in a stylish and comfortable design. A more upright console gives protection from the wind and can accommodate a 12” chart plotter, gages, stereo and VHF, the tools for turning your tender into a day explorer. The large capacity built-in fuel system gives the V16 excellent range making it perfect to explore further. Easy boarding is made possible with non-slip steps aft, port, starboard and on the bow. A large built-in cooler in front of the console will keep your snacks and drinks fresh all day and there are six stainless steel cup holders for the journey. All seating has thick cushioning and the console and bow seat have a plush backrest for comfy reclining. The Venture 16 comes with the option of four flush-mount stainless steel rod holders and a telescopic ski pole.

Rated for ten passengers, the Venture 16 weighs 725lbs and with a 100 HP and 28gal fuel tank it has an estimated mileage of 241 miles. The V16 is available in three color accent options; Military Gray, Carbon Black and Ocean Blue. The tube is made with ORCA CSM® fabric. MSRP starts at $25,950 for the boat, excluding engine.
