23′ Venture Sport

‹ Back To 23'

holds her course with little effort

Maneuverability at speed is balanced and predictable, even in heavy seas. The boat holds her course with little effort. The hull’s flatness toward the stern with reverse chines greatly reduces the rolling motions, making cruising in rough water much more pleasant. Fishermen will love the way the boat tracks at trolling speeds, allowing the focus to remain on the fishing. And with only 8” draft and a thick bottom, she can easily be beached on sand for beach combing adventures.
