Princecraft Ventura 23 RL

Nov 14, 2022

Princecraft® Boats, a division of Brunswick Corporation (NYSE: BC) and leading manufacturer of high-quality aluminum boats, has announced the launch of its 2023 line of Ventura vessels – the Ventura 23 RL and 20 RL. The complete redesign of these models, in the Ventura series, represent the most enhancements to the lineup the past 15 years – delivering high-quality performance and feature-rich designs for exceptional on-water experiences. 

Regarded as one of the most versatile deck boats on the market, both Ventura models come with significant upgrades for 2023, including:

• A new, redesigned dual helm featuring an optional premium high power stereo system, including a touchscreen Simrad Go7 XSR with digital media center, five high-performance speakers, Mercury Marine VesselView®, downscan imaging, and a 10-inch subwoofer and amplifier.

• A redesigned deck for greater versatility for both fishing and leisure, as well as foldable entertaining areas.

• Expanded water access at the stern and a large rear lounger that can instantly change from a bed to a face forward/backward lounger

• Angler-focused features, such as a fishing area, lockable rod storage, a 20-gallon livewell and plug-in and battery tie-downs for an optional 12-, 24- or 36v trolling motor.

The 23 RL and 20 RL are the most customizable models in the Ventura line so far with options, such as a privacy enclosure and a head. Other customizable features include adding a ski tow point for water sports, as well as an upgrade to the stern swim platform to make it 20 percent larger and create even easier water access.

“These new models are loaded with features that will appeal to both cruisers and anglers,” said Rodier Grondin, Princecraft President. “We have worked hard to create the largest enhancement the Ventura series has seen in 15 years. These enhancements will make these vessels the best deck boats on the market.”

The Ventura 23 RL measures 23 feet, while 20 RL comes in at 20 feet. Both vessels come constructed with top-of-the-line H36 aluminum alloy and a pressure-treated wood deck. The two models are currently available through the Princecraft dealer network, with more details available at
