A finalist in the 2017 Motor Boat Awards in the Cockpit Curisers and Wheelhouse category - the Rodman 890 Ventura, the first outboard model for the leisure market from the Rodman Shipyard.
This boat is a real contender in the 8-9 metre outboard market, with amazing visibility, lightness and use of space, as well as the model having inherited all the build quality and seakeeping ability we have come to expect from the Rodman Fisher and Crusier range.
This new range of outboard models enables more first time boaters to get on board with Rodman, as well as those looking to trade up from smaller fishers. With a hull length of 8.9m, the 890 Ventura will be category B with 8 persons on board. It's up to you whether to have a version tailored for fishing or cruising. Where the boat is specified for fishing, the large cockpit space is left mostly free to allow the room you need, but features live baitwells, outdoor sink and wash off facilities and four rod holders. The cruising version features a triple panel glass sliding cockpit door to the saloon (as well as the side access door), and utilises the cockpit space for seating and dining areas, as well as having a huge bow cushion for sunbathing. It is also possible to mix the features of these different versions to get the boat setup which is just right for you. Whether you choose the fishing or the cruising version, you will still benefit from the deep, walkaround side decks which are synonymous with Rodman, as well a starboard side door for convenient access to the helm. The interior is light and fresh, using modern materials, and benefits from wonderful large side windows and either the triple panel glass sliding cockpit door, or large window aft if you have the fishing version, that together provide 360° visability, letting the light flood in.
