Rodman 690 Ventura CC

After being unveiled at the Southampton and Barcelona boat shows, Rodman is officially launching the new Rodman 690 Ventura CC, introducing it as its own new addition for the coming season. Measuring 7.74 meters in length overall and with 2.55 meters of maximum beam, it looks like a compact and versatile day-boat, capable of going up to 40 knots with the maximum 200-horsepower engine.

Rodman 690 Ventura CC – Exterior and motorization

From the wide freeboard and hull lines, the 690 Ventura appears, even at first glance, to be a sheltered boat with a sheltered deck, with high bulwarks accompanying up to the aft platform, from which to access the water. Here, between the two sections of the dashboard, we find the outboard motor. In the cockpit is the first convivial area, consisting of a standard bench seat, optionally expandable into an L-shaped sofa, to which a small table can also be added. In the bow of these, two ergonomic armchairs serve the center console of the wheelhouse, with on either side we find the two access corridors to the forward spaces.

A second and versatile lounging area is presented in the bow, with a double set of sofas, one at the broadside, the other against the console, ready to convert into a sundeck. In any case, both aft and forward areas of shade can be obtained, thanks to a bimini in the former case and with an awning in the latter.

With a fuel tank of about 200 liters, the new Rodman 690 can be powered outboard by up to 200 horsepower, power that can generate up to 40 knots of top speed. Instead, the ideal cruising speed would seem to be around 25 knots. At 15 knots, on the other hand, the most economical cruise with which you have about 125 miles of range.
