Rodman 890 Ventura Press Seatrials

Rodman 890 Ventura Press Seatrials

The Rodman 890 Ventura was sea trialled by the international press at Portsmouth's Gunwharf Quays last week.

It was wonderful to welcome journalists from the UK, France and Spain to Portsmouth for the opportunity to get behind the throttles of the first unit's twin 200hp Mercury Outboards. Unfortunately the UK press had a rather grey and drizzly day, but the sun shone brightly for the French and Spanish press, surely leaving them wondering what us Brits are always moaning about with the weather!

The Rodman 890 was put through her paces by the journalists, and was photographed and videoed by Press and Photographers who were aboard the 'chase' boat - a Rodman 1170 called 'Tenacity' that is available to charter from Portsmouth.

The first preview from Motorboat and Yachting Magazine is now available online and we're delighted with tester Jack's thoughts on the boat - complimenting the solid hull, performance, side door and feeling of spaciousness. We already have plans to make improvements on the boat with the introduction of a curtain to create some privacy between the forward and guest cabins, and Rodman plan to improve the storage in this area too.
