Boating’s Tech Team tested more than 100 boats in 2012.
In addition to performance data and commentary, Boating boat tests assess how a given boat compares to others in the same category. Robust construction, crisp handling and adherence to American Boat and Yacht Council standards represent important qualities in any boat. But a coastal fishing boat doesn’t need a ski boat’s hole shot any more than a trailerable runabout needs a generator. When we discover a boat that achieves excellence in construction and design, and also exceeds the mission demands of its class, we have a winner.
Sea Ray’s 370 Venture is powered by outboards, cleverly hidden and ingeniously installed. The express cruiser hallmarks of a full-width swim platform, aft lounge and streamlined profile are retained. It offers a quieter ride, more stowage and larger accommodations than similar cruisers do. It possesses better shoal-water ability and diminished corrosion concerns. In short, Sea Ray’s 370 Venture represents a category of one. As such, we proclaim it Boating’s Boat of the Year.
