We build fast wooden speedboats with a retro design that reflects the glamorous Sixties and Seventies. At Ventura Boats we believe that boats should look as good as they perform. To make this happen we combine a sense of style, nuance and subtlety with advanced knowledge on optimising boat performance.
Because Ventura boats are made by professionals, they can be fully adapted to customer requirements. We can, for instance, change the layout of the deck down to the smallest detail, add a day head, fit a larger refrigerator or create new elements such as a lounge deck.
We are also happy to discuss the tangible aspects of on board luxury such as leathers, fabrics, equipment, appliances, stainless steel work, counters, engine, sound system or Wi-Fi.
In fact, everything and anything is fully negotiable.
A Ventura can accommodate six to seven people on a longer trip. The seats are upholstered with plush leather, and if things get a bit hot in the middle of the day your bespoke bimini will provide shade from the sun.
You can jet from Saint-Tropez to Monaco for lunch within two hours. Or if you prefer to have lunch on board, we can install a refrigerator, microwave, running water, sink or freezer. And if you like spending the night on the water, below deck is a spacious and comfortable double bed with a toilet.
At cruising speed, a full tank will give you a range of 200 nautical miles. A Ventura 28 with a Mercruiser 496 V8 engine with 425 horsepower consumes 30 litres per hour. At 2200 rpm, the boat starts planing and is then sailing at a speed of around 27 knots.
This boat is ideal for true boating enthusiasts. Thanks to its rapid acceleration and tremendous agility, a Ventura is ideal for water skiers, wakeboarders or paragliders. It can also be equipped with all kinds of water toys. And after a refreshing swim or dive, you can easily get out of the water with the standard swimming ladder.
In short, with a Ventura, a day with friends and family on the Great Lakes, between Ibiza and Formentera, on the Côte d’Azur or on the classic Italian lakes is an unforgettable delight.
We provide a complete range of yacht maintenance and service activities to ensure your Venture is in tip-top condition for a smooth sailing season. This includes transport and storage, and making sure the yacht is fully ready whenever you wish to sail. And if something unexpected should occur during the season, we will provide support as quickly as possible.
