Under the guidance of American Custom Yachts, the acclaimed Venture brand has re-emerged as a proven and highly sought after fishing machine for the discriminating blue water enthusiast. Taking over production in 2012, ACY modernized the Venture line, introducing a number of innovative improvements and exciting custom options allowing owners to create the perfect boat to meet their needs. In 2014, ACY acquired the Venture name and company assets, bringing the entire operation under the American family of companies.
Today's Venture has been thoughtfully redesigned for comfort, convenience and improved fishability. The new Venture console features a larger screen display area, optional built-in rod storage and a fully sealed dry door. Forward seating has been ergonomically redesigned for added comfort. An improved gutter and drainage system around the hatches ensures dryer storage. Topping off the new Venture is an eye-catching new tower created by Bausch-American Towers offering a choice of three different hard tops. Additional customization options include a single-level deck, extra fuel capacity, several live well configurations and a side door with a pocket fold-out ladder, perfect for boating a big one or enjoying a day at the sand bar. Every Venture built receives the same unmatched craftsmanship and attention to detail that goes into ACY's world-famous custom yachts. And when it comes to service, ACY offers Venture customers a full range of expert marine services under one roof.
