"Aventura" is a steel hulled yacht with aluminum superstructure that is welded with DetaCouple.

Naval Architecture was done by Pat Bray, with concept design by Joe Johnson at Real Ships. Additional Naval Architecture and cutting files were supplied by SAI, Ship Architects. Steel and Aluminum CNC cutting was done in Mobile, Alabama, and the Interior design was by Innovative Interiors. The hull shape was tank tested by BC Research in Vancouver, and features hydrodynamic engine pod keels that allow the traditional engine and transmission configuration to be further aft in the boat. Her large bulbous bow not only adds efficiency at cruise but slows the pitching motion in head seas with the bulb’s buoyancy keeping the bow high and dry.

The interior decking and woodwork float on SounDown insulation to deaden sound and vibration. All steel interiors are epoxy painted with spray foam insulation.
