2001 Boston Whaler Ventura 180 with a 2012 Mercury Optimax 150 XL Outboard motor and tandem axle trailer. It has Sea Star Hydraulic steering. The motor was just serviced and was gone through top to bottom. It preforms like a new motor! This is a fresh water boat that has never been used in salt water. It has been well maintained. Although it has a few minor scuffs and dings normal for it's age, it is a rock solid Whaler. Boat comes with a Stainless Steel Bimini top. It has a fiberglass floor so it's easy to keep clean and wash out. This is very solid, unsinkable boat, great for beginners and experienced boaters alike.
The Boston Whaler Ventura 180 is a versatile runabout that's perfect for both skiing and fishing. Her broad-beamed, dual console, open bow design allows for plenty of room and comfort. With a large bow area, comfortable helm and companion seating, plus aft seats, there's plenty of room for everyone. It's a runabout. It's a ski boat. It's a fishing boat. Take your pick. Or take them all. The Ventura does just about everything you can do on the water. And does it all remarkably well.
About the only thing you can't do with a Ventura is sink it. It has Whaler's exclusive unsinkable Unibond construction. Drop-forge stainless steel fittings. Decks with superfine, nonskid, micro-pyramid surfaces that provide excellent footing even when they're wet.
Higher freeboard, combined with the Accutrack hull's reversed chines and spray rails, give Venturas a dry, comfortable ride. The deep-V slices through chop and waves smoothly. And running strakes get Venturas up on plane fast and improve fuel economy.

This boat is also a GREAT alternative to a deck boat. This whaler has seating for 8 and is exceptionally seaworthy. Most deck boat are not very seaworthy and are scary on a bay on a choppy day. Unsinkable whalers smaller than this one have made the trip from Fort Lauderdale to Bimini.
A local dealer told me the NADA value of this whaler is $24,500
Priced at $16,900 for a quick sale. 828-329-9786
