2013 Pioneer Venture. Bought new in April 2013.[/b]
It's dry stacked in Jupiter now, so showing any time is easy.
The Venture has been a wonderful boat, very nice ride and exceptional quality. We really love the fit and finish of the Pioneer, and if they sold a 26 ft boat would trade up to another Pioneer. We bought the Dual Console with the expectation of more extended family outings, less off shore and near shore fishing. We have realized we love off and near shore more than anything and our family is growing, so we need to upgrade in size. Otherwise we would keep it for a long, long time.
The Yamaha has given us nothing but perfect performance and has been maintained per Yamaha specs by local Yamaha shop. Having 100 hr service this month. ONLY non-Ethanol fuel has ever been run in the tank, and only Yamaha products have been used. The 150 is plenty of power and top end is around 42 MPH. We purchased the Y.E.S. service contract and it is transferable, along with the Hull Warranty of 7 years (6 years left). The quietness of the 4 stroke is amazing, and makes cruising, slow speed trolling and idling wile drifting very pleasant. Fuel efficient as well. It does not have a fuel flow meter, so I DO NOT know the burn numbers, but it is very efficient. Flushed after EACH use, washed down and fluids checked. Always. Even when in the keys, we would flush after a day?s use.
The Venture fishes very, very, well, and we have fished 4 adults and a child from it. It is tight with that many for fishing. Three adults fish it well. We (My wife) fly fish from the front, too, with the Bimini top lowered or removed. The live well works great, and is in the rear at the transom. Has a fish box in the front, a storage cooler in the console, a HUGE floor locker which could double as a fish box.
All Cushions are in perfect shape. Removed all removable after each trip (Most were left inside house). Cleaned regularly. All finishes are as expected on a 2013 boat. Any scratches in gel coat have been repaired (two total). There are no stress cracks or blemishes in hull. Boat had FULL detail on 3/18/14. Boat washed after each use, inside and out. Even the bilge was washed down, hatches left open to dry, after use.
This is a wonderful, clean, well maintained family boat. We are only looking to trade to get a larger boat. This was our first boat and we love it, but need more room for the family and friends and want to go more off shore than my wife feels comfortable under 25 foot. I have ran her out 10 miles off Jupiter and the keys, and never felt worried.
