One of the first things you'll notice on a Venture boat is the oversized hinges and latches on all the doors and hatches. The transom and console head door are especially impressive. Where most manufacturers use an inexpensive flat composite material, Venture uses a molded fiberglass piece. This allows them to add radius where necessary to be sure of a tight, seamless fit. This build process is very labor intensive and something you'd expect from a custom boat. The obsessive attention to detail is evident throughout the boat. Open up any hatch and you'll see the high quality stainless steel support pistons as well as all floor hatches feature high density foam infused coring with resin transfer molded fiberglass construction delivering superior strength.
During our sea trial it was immediately evident the Venture 34 is a seaworthy boat, We ran 34 knots in 3-5 footers and the ride was truly amazing. The hull pierced through the oncoming swells without any pounding or jarring. There's no holding onto the T-Top for dear life. The Verados performed flawlessly and sounded great underway.
Around the docks she handles extremely well. The Verado outboards are properly spaced allowing the operator to maneuver her like she is an inboard boat.
Tuna Kahuna features a beautiful Sea Foam Green gelcoat with Black Petit Vivid Ablative bottom paint, painted to follow the waterline. The Gelcoat is in excellent condition with no signs of fading. A notable option not found on many of the Venture 34s is the Thru-the-Hull Anchor Windlass; this option provides a flush fit for the highly polished Plow-style anchor. The windlass capstan, line and chain are neatly concealed inside the bow anchor hatch.
Boarding Tuna Kahuna from the starboard transom door and entering the cockpit you will find a 55 gallon transom mounted livewell with light blue gel coat and LED lighting. Adjacent to the livewell are fresh and saltwater spigots with self retracting hoses draining into a fiberglass washdown basin.
The cockpit area has an access hatch to the bilge pumps, fuel water separators and thru hull valves. Other features include:
The console size is proportional to the rest of the boat which further enhances the good looks of Tuna Kahuna. Manufacturers are sometimes tempted to move the console too far forward giving you the illusion that the cockpit is larger than their competitors; not on this boat. The cockpit is plenty big and the console is perfectly positioned on the liner. Notable features include:
Inside the Console (which is accessed on the Port side) there 6'0" headroom with a freshwater wash basin, porcelain electric head, concealed toilet paper dispenser, storage drawers as well as access to vessel's wiring, terminal blocks, battery switches and batteries. (Please refer to wiring pictures to see the attention to detail paid when she was wired).
The Tackle Center provides storage for 12 Plano tackle boxes as well as two oversized pull out drawers. The base of the tackle center is fiberglass with a removable Aluminum back rest. Additional features include:
The T-top is fabricated out of high quality anodized aluminum. The top itself is molded fiberglass (not (2) fiberglass panels sandwiched together and then held together with a riveted belly band.) Feature to the T-Top include:
The electronics are well arranged and installed in a professional manner. The electronics include:
The Cuddy was engineered to maximize interior space without compromising functionality. The interior features teak accents and recessed lighting. Pull out the cushions on the spacious 7-foot bunk, and the entire cuddy can be hosed out. The Cuddy elegantly adds a little more comfort to the offshore scene. Features to the Cuddy include:
"How do you measure the success of an offshore Center Console; by its speed, stability and how dry it is. The Venture 34 delivers the confidence to run offshore when others wouldn't dare to be offshore. The 34 provides serious offshore enthusiasts with a high performance hull design. When drifting or trolling the 34 is very stable thanks to a wide 10 ft beam and low center of gravity virtually eliminating the heavy rolling associated with Deep Vee hulls."
Tuna Kahuna is in remarkable condition. She is a one-owner boat that has received the utmost care and maintenance over the years. The forward Cuddy Cabin is a nice addition for those that want the benefits of a center console, but also want a comfortable family boat and additional storage.
Tuna Kahuna is one of the few Venture 34 hulls featuring the Generation II hull and the Mercury 300 Verado package. This package delivers an impressive 34 knot cruise burning only 30 gallons an hour.
More importantly this boat has not been heavily fished. You will not find gaff marks in the fiberglass or tears in the cushions.
