Bradford new dealer for Venture boats


Ft. Lauderdale-based Bradford Marine has been selected the exclusive dealer for Venture Boat Company in Broward County, Fla., and the Bahamas.

“Venture boats are a great choice for any fisherman, make excellent tenders for our customers’ yachts, and can be individually customized at our facility,” said Paul Engle, president of Bradford Marine, in a press release.

Venture, under new owner Lee Heaton, has undergone a modernization, adding a number of improvements to its existing models. Venture builds a semi-custom line of boats, including a 23-foot bay boat, a 27-foot center console and 34- and 39-foot open fishermen.

“Venture has updated every aspect of its business to provide unmatched customer service and attention to detail,” Venture COO Carl “JR” Herndon said. “We are dedicated to high-performance and quality, using only the best materials.”
