Venture 34 Forward Seating

Introducing their first 34-foot center console in 1995, Venture quickly climbed the ranks by providing customers with an outstanding ride and impressive performance. Having overcome recent economic challenges, Venture Boat Company is under new leadership and back better than ever. While the high performance hull designs remain intact, a number of innovative improvements have come to fruition, in addition to production having been transferred to the world-famous American Custom Yachts facility in Stuart, FL—a 63-acre one-stop-shop for custom yacht construction, repair, service and storage.

Venture 34 Forward Seating

With new management and branding, excellent customer service and attention to detail, the newest Venture is dedicated to offshore performance. Utilizing only the highest quality materials, including biaxial fiberglass, Kevlar, Divinycell PVC foam core and vinylester resin, all Venture Boats feature impressive handling characteristics and durability. Among the latest innovations, Venture Boats are now available with a single level deck, so you can forget about stepping up to fight fish from the bow. An improved gutter and drainage system ensures super dry storage, with hatch seals also modified to further enhance watertight storage compartments. Optional side door, additional fuel tank and optional 60 and 160 gallon livewells further compliment the redesign of this hardcore fishing machine. The new and improved Venture 34 also features an extended transom and larger stringers to add hull volume to the stern.

While this dream machine can be outfitted in numerous configurations, the forward seating model merges fishing functionality with family features. The bow provides generous seating space atop removable upholstered bench cushions, backed by heavy-padded coaming bolsters. Under the seats you’ll find lockable rod storage compartments and an insulated box for ample storage capacity. If you’re looking for a family-friendly platform that doubles as a hardcore tournament competitor, this is one center console you can’t afford to overlook. Venture Boat Co., 800.658.1092,
