Venture 25 Sailboat For Sale

Update. The boat has been sold.

For sale is an early 70's 25 foot 'Venture 25' sailboat. The boat is located in Tacoma, WA.

This early 70's Venture 25 sailboat is in fair condition. The steel swing keel has been rebuilt. The trailer is not the original. The interior, which is roomy for this class of boat, lacks the creature comforts found on many other sailboats in this size range. The boat is structurally sound and we spent a fair amount of time sailing and cruising her in the South Puget Sound in 2008. She has not been sailed since 2008. She includes the original main sail, an adapted J24 main sail, a jib, and a genoa. Although she has been pulled by my four cylinder pickup, I recommend at least a six cylinder tow vehicle. I have titles to both the boat and the trailer in my name.

The Venture 25 was designed to mount an outboard. I've used both 2.5 and 3.5 hp outboards in the past but a 6hp is probably best. No outboard is included. The motor mount shown swings up for sailing and down for motoring.

The interior was designed with a location for the portable toilet but none is included. The boat has a small molded in sink that drains overboard. In addition, a molded in icebox allows storage of ice and cold food.

The interior is basically white fiberglass with molded seats, sink, icebox etc. There is a table that collapses to become the basis for an additional sleeping area. But most of the cushions were lost before we acquired the boat. We borrowed a set of J24 cushions which fit rather well. Those J24 cushions are not included.

Update. The boat has been sold.
