I have a friend who just fell in love with the 21 Ventura. Can this boat be towed with a half-ton vehicle, namely a Chevy Tahoe or the like?

I towed my 01' 21' Ventura 650 miles with no problem. 99' Yukon with tow package and beefed up rear suspension.

I've been pulling my '03 210 Ventura all over the place with an '02 1/2 ton suburban without any problem. One 900 mile trip from Southern California to Southern Utah (Lake Powell) I was wishing I had tranny temp gauge though (standard on the 3/4 ton models). It was mighty hot out in the desert and we had to pull some long grades. Survived without incident though.

I'd say you'll be just fine.

By the way... I'm still in love with the boat too.

Thank you for the replies. I was assuming it would be ok because it is smaller than my 23 and you can almost tow it with a half-ton. You never really know how much a combat loaded boat and trailer really weigh until you get them on a scale. You can never completely trust the brochure postings.

I towed a 21 Walkaround with a 97 Tahoe for a while, I had the tow package w/ the transmition cooler and I believe that was a big help on long trips...
