Style, Class and plenty of Brass!

(We are hauling Venture on the 24th July for new anti-foul if anyone want's to see her out of the water. )

We are selling Venture, our beautiful home for the past 6 years and a boat that is a rare treasure in Australian waters. After over 10,000 miles sailing on the South and East Coasts of Australia as well as a circumnavigation of Tasmania, we are now looking to move to the next part of our life experience.

This is a boat to take you safely anywhere in comfort! Venture is a Cabo Rico 38, a true blue water cruiser. The designer (Bill Crealock) said in his design notes "The Cabo Rico 38 hull shape is the one in which everything came together best. ".

She's a dry boat with the clipper bow pushing water aside so the cockpit rarely gets wet. Under full sail when the wind reaches around 10 knots, she quickly reaches 6 knots through the water and is very stable and sea kindly. There's no "whippy" motion and everything seems to happen in slow motion. She's very easy to handle and can turn in her own length in a marina fairway if required. The beautiful, deep sheer lines make it very easy to step off the boat onto a floating dock.

The solid full keel means she tracks well and the sail plan gives a lot of options for all conditions.

Her interior is full plantation grown Costa Rican teak that, unlike many timbers, lightens with age to honey hues and becomes richer over time. The solid brass touches in the Weems and Plath clock and barometer, the light surrounds, lamps, handles, bell and even the towel rails give a touch of absolute class. Screened opening hatches above the V-berth, saloon table and nav desk, as well as opening springloaded, stainless steel portholes, allow for great air flow and plenty of light.

There is ample storage including 2 hanging lockers (one near nav desk and a double in the V-berth), plus extra storage not normally found on a Cabo Rico including a hutch, extra shelving in the quarter berth and spice racks/shelves in the galley. There are several magazine/book racks for those extra bits and pieces.

She comes complete with many, many spare parts and tools, maps, books and East Coast and Tasmanian cruising pilots. A detachable custom made Sunbrella canvas bag on the foredeck is home to the drifter and spare sails.

The cockpit has custom made vinyl cushions (easy cleaning) and a fold down/fold out table (plenty of room for 4 people). The fully enclosed cockpit acts as an extra room and is a lovely place to enjoy sundowners on a balmy evening.

A spreadsheet is available with all technical details, paper chart list, fuel usage, list and location of spares and tools carried on board and full maintenance history going back to 2001. Paper manuals for all the boat systems are also carried on board.

More photos to come!
