Why You'll Love the Veer Electric Boat

Published February 2nd, 2024 by Bernardo

The all-new Veer V13, featuring the Avator electric outboard (both unveiled at the 2023 Consumer Electrics Show), is here. 

Designed to attract new audiences to boating due to its low sale price, it's also helping bring the latest advances in electric vehicle technology to the boating industry.

As we've learned firsthand at our South Florida locations at Nautical Ventures, the new Veer boat takes style, ease, and versatility to a whole new level—and the best part? You'll be out on the open water in record time (and at a head-turning price).

Why We Love Veer Boats

It's hard not to love the V13's sleek, commanding form, built from the same lightweight and durable material (rotomolded polyethylene) that's served the kayak industry so well. It also makes the new electric-option Veer boat much lower maintenance than fiberglass hulls.

With a starting price of $11,995, this is a great option for people looking to buy an affordable fishing boat.

The Mercury Avator's high-performance outboard electric is fast and quiet, with incredibly low draft and emission-free operation. Shoppers can also choose the Mercury 9.9hp 4-stroke engine, which is nearly as smooth and subtle as its electric counterpart. It's also very fuel efficient and burns clean—so as far as super-versatile, eco-friendly boating options, you can't go wrong either way.

Each motor has readily available speed and a high power-to-weight ratio for instant water adventures fit for newcomers and boating enthusiasts alike. The incredibly agile Veer boat is also safe, featuring a self-bailing function that drains water by gravity alone and without a pump.
In fact, due to its affordability and appeal to a younger, non-traditional demographic, it was awarded the prestigious '2023 Boat of the Year Award' by Boating Magazine.



Veer Boat Specifications

The V13 is so low-maintenance and easy to haul that you'll enjoy more time on the water and less time keeping it all going. That's largely thanks to its incredibly efficient, flatbed-capable design, measuring in at:

  • Draft: 6'3" (resting)
  • Beam: 4'
  • Length: 13'
  • Weight: 382 lb. (dry), 835 lb. (w/ motor)
  • Power: 9.9hp max.

With its dense, rotomolded plastic construction, the skiff-like Veer boats through some of the shallowest waters with minimal risk of damage. Its hull is all the stronger for the fact that it's forgiving, reducing the chance of cracks (and long-term maintenance costs).

True to form, Nautical Ventures is bringing the long-awaited Veer boating sensation to customers with no shortage of customization options. That includes one of several electric outboards (7.5e, 20e, and 35e) unless you opt for the 9.9hp 4-stroke engine.

Two can sit comfortably, surrounded by a deck-like surface, and there's a removable standing bar for easy-grip stability in the center. A two-piece 10-ft. anchor pole makes shallow water anchoring fast and easy, and there's an efficient series of integrated compartments for gear.

Nighttime boaters will want to outfit their rig with a high-powered spotlight, and color options include a crisp light gray or an ever-playful aqua-seafoam green. The Veer V13 also comes with a corrosion-resistant trailer and a protective canvas cover.

Go Green with Veer

As a 2023 Innovation Award-winning boating company—courtesy of the National Marine Manufacturers Association—Veer Boats has left an indelible impact on the future of boating in just a short time. By bringing more electric options to sports boating and carving out a more affordable price point, they're breaking several barriers in one.

Going electric gives you the greatest lifetime value from your boat, and Veer boats particularly take the cost-efficiency of boating to a whole new level, with incredibly high value-for-cost.

We're as pleased as ever to bring the newest marine sports technology to boating enthusiasts with the all-new Veer V13. 

Nautical Ventures is proud to be a trusted dealer and expert in Veer boats, serving the Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Tampa Bay, Sarasota, and Stuart areas.

What Are the Different Types of Boat Engines?

Published August 29th, 2023 by Bernardo

When purchasing a boat, you might wonder about the different engines available. Terms like inboard, outboard, and jet drive can initially seem new and overwhelming. Fortunately, we're here to help with your questions.

The boating experts at Nautical Ventures outline the different types of boat engines. Consulting with our experts during your purchase can provide valuable insights to help you make an informed decision.

Outboard Engine

Outboard boat engines are undeniably the most popular and quite valuable in the US. They are not only light and powerful but also extremely quiet. One reason for their popularity is that they include a fully self-contained propulsion system from the engine to the transmission to the shaft and propeller.

Compared to other options, the outboard engine type is designed to pivot and turn, providing excellent maneuverability. The entire motor is designed to swivel to ensure easy steering whenever the turning propeller pushes the stern. For example, our Yamaha series of outboards has received high customer praise lately.

Outboards are well-suited for fishing, water sports, and docking in tight spaces.

We also carry other popular brands, such as Suzuki, Mercury, and Cox, to name a few.

Outboard engines are typically mounted on the transom of the board, meaning their weight is distributed more evenly, leading to better stability and handling. Additionally, this type of boat engine can tilt up, allowing boats to navigate in shallow waters without damaging the propeller or the engine itself.

If you want a powerful engine but wish to maintain sustainability when out boating, ask about our Cox Marine diesel engine. With a V8 engine, this diesel-powered outboard engine combines high-performance propulsion systems and top-of-the-line technologies to maintain horsepower and reduce marine emissions.

Jet Drive

As the name suggests, a jet drive engine relies on water to propel and steer the board. The water enters an intake on the bottom of the boat for the jet drive unit to accelerate it at the transom and thrust the boat forward. To steer the boat in the desired direction, it changes the direction of the water stream as it leaves the jet unit. If this sounds appealing, Yamaha has their own line of jet drives available.

Stern Drive

Similar to an outboard engine, the stern drive leverages a four-stroke automotive engine inside the boat hull to power the vessel. The engine turns toward the steering wheel, guiding the boat in the intended direction. Due to combining features of inboard and outboard motors, stern drives are more complex in terms of maintenance.

Inboard Engine

Inboard engines, while less popular than outboards, are four-stroke automotive engines located inside the hull of a boat. Unlike outboards, the inboard engine can't also steer the boat. Rudders are hidden behind the propeller and controlled with the steering wheel aid with the actual steering of the boat. Due to their location on the vessel, inward engines tend to be prone to uneven weight distribution. This can affect the boat's stability and maneuverability, especially in rough waters.

Experience Unmatched Power and Performance with Nautical Ventures Engines

When buying a boat, picking the right engine to meet your vessel's needs is vital. To maximize efficiency and enhance safety and durability, it is crucial that you choose the ideal type of engine based on the size and intended usage of your vessel.

At Nautical Ventures, we aim to connect boating enthusiasts with tailored vessels that meet their needs. When you are ready to buy a boat, our experienced boat engine experts can guide you through the entire process and help you find the right type of boat motor that suits your lifestyle.

First-time Boat Buyers Guide: How to Buy a Boat

Published June 5th, 2023 by Bernardo

Buying a boat can be an exciting yet daunting process, with many factors to consider, such as the type of boat, financing options, and possible trade-in options. At Nautical Ventures, we're passionate about helping our customers make informed decisions and find the perfect boat for their needs. Keep reading as we share our expertise and insights to guide you through the process of buying a boat so that you can make the best decision for you and your family.

How to Buy a Boat: A Guide for First-time Boat Buyers 

Before diving into a boat purchase, it's essential to have a clear understanding of your boating needs and lifestyle. Consider where you plan to do your boating, whether it's inland, coastal, offshore, or island hopping. Also, think about how you'll use your boat for family trips, fishing, diving, or skiing. By identifying your needs, you can choose a boat that best fits your lifestyle and offers the features and benefits that matter most to you. With this in mind, let's explore some essential boat-buying tips to help you make the right decision.

Identify What Type of Boat Is Best for Your Needs

Identifying the correct type of boat for your needs is critical when purchasing. For instance, if you plan to use your boat for fishing, you may want to consider a center console or a sport fisher. If you're looking for family fun, a bowrider or pontoon may be a better choice; a cruiser or a yacht may be more suitable for overnight trips. 

By understanding what you want to use your boat for, you can choose a type of boat that matches your hobbies, lifestyle, and budget. Our knowledgeable associates can help you determine the best boat for your needs.

Should You Consider New or Used Boats?

One of the key decisions when buying a boat is whether to go for a new or used vessel. New boats offer the latest features, warranties, and customization options but also can have a higher price tag. Pre-owned boats can be more affordable but may require more maintenance and repairs. It's important to weigh the pros and cons of both options and consider your budget and long-term goals before making a decision.

Browse Listings, Work with a Broker, or Attend a Boat Show

Once you've identified the type of boat that suits your needs and budget, it's time to start your search. There are several ways to browse boat listings, including online showrooms, boat brokers, and attending boat shows. Working with a broker can provide access to a broader selection of boats while attending boat shows allows you to see multiple models in one place. By exploring various options, you can better understand different boats and their features, which can help you make an informed decision.

Narrow-down Your Options

After browsing various options, it's time to narrow down your choices and make a decision. This is where working with the associates at Nautical Ventures can be helpful. Our sales associates can help you evaluate all the factors important to you, such as price, condition, features, and financing options, to make the right choice for the perfect boat to suit your needs.

Secure Funds or Boat Financing

Once you've found the perfect boat, securing funds or financing is the next step. Nautical Ventures offers various financing options to help make your dream of owning a boat a reality. Our financing team can guide you through the process and help you find the best boat loan available. In many cases, a boat is more affordable than people think. Buying a boat can be more like buying a house than a car with the financing options available at Nautical Ventures.

Close the Deal and Hit the Water

Once you've had a successful test run and are ready to finalize your boat purchase, the last step is closing the deal. This involves signing the necessary paperwork, completing the payment and insurance process, and arranging for the delivery or pickup of the boat. Nautical Ventures can help you navigate this process and ensure everything goes smoothly without any complications.


What if I Already Own a Boat? Can I Trade it in?

If you already own a boat and are considering buying a newer one or something with different features, you have options. You can trade, sell, or put a boat on consignment at any of Nautical Ventures’ South Florida dealership locations. Each option has its pros and cons, and our experts can guide you through the process to help you make the best decision.

Browse the Best Selection of New & Used Boats in Florida

While buying a boat is an exciting and fulfilling experience, it does, however, require thoughtful consideration and research to make the right choice. Whether you're a first-time boat buyer or a seasoned boater, the experts at Nautical Ventures can help you find the perfect boat to suit your needs.

How to select a pre-owned boat

Published April 29th, 2021 by Bernardo

The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic saw many boat builders temporarily halt manufacturing for a number of reasons. Many areas were forced to “shelter in place” causing builders to limit employee presence. Builders also experienced a shortage of building materials causing a backup in production. Across the country, Americans found themselves forced to slow down, cancelling travel plans and family reunions, and instead choosing to social distance on the water. The combination of these two circumstances had many new boaters searching for used boats for sale in Florida. Now, purchasing a brokerage vessel is more popular than ever, but some boaters are still concerned that purchasing pre-owned is the wrong decision. Let’s check out some ways you can be certain you are purchasing a used boat that is a quality vessel and will provide you with years of fun on the water with family and friends.
