A tender built for boating enthusiasts and for those who want more from their tender.

Union Gap, WA, April 8, 2019 – Walker Bay launches the Venture 14ft. RIB, built for exploring, fishing, diving and entertaining, with the high-end design and innovative features that are synonymous with Walker Bay Deluxe Console RIB’s.

The Venture 14 offers 3 versatile driving positions, made possible by a flip-up bolster seat that gives additional room for standing or elevated seating when driving in adverse conditions.  The tilt steering and top mount throttle make all three positions equally ergonomic.  A deep heel recess gives ample leg room and the wide deep rear seat provides the driver and passenger with a comfortable ride.

The Venture 14 comes with more unique standard features than any other 14’ Sport RIB. The more upright console gives more protection from the wind and can accommodate a 9” chart plotter, two gages, stereo and VHF, providing the essential tools for turning your tender into a day explorer. The large capacity built-in fuel system gives the V14 more range than other RIB’s in its class making it perfect to explore further.  Easy boarding is made possible with non-slip steps aft, port, starboard and on the bow. A built-in cooler in front of the console will keep your snacks and drinks fresh all day and there are five 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 14 is built using Walker Bay’s proprietary composite micro stringer system that bonds the hull and deck into one piece resulting in a strong, but lighter weight hull that absorbs chop and is quick to plane.  The Venture 14 comes with the option of an integrated folding ladder for easy re-boarding, fresh water shower off the stern and flush-mount stainless steel rod holders and telescopic ski pole.

Rated for eight passengers, the Venture 14 weighs 633lbs and with a 70 HP and 17gal fuel tank it has an estimated mileage of 140 miles. The V14 is the first model in the new Sport RIB line and comes in the choice of three color options.  MSRP starting at $18,715 for the boat, excluding engine and is available in ORCA CSM® tube material.
