Sea Ray's 370 Venture was named "Boat of the Year 2012" by the editors of Boating magazine.

“I’m happy to accept this award on behalf of our designers, engineers and craftsmen, who are truly the best at what they do,” Sea Ray president Rob Parmentier said in a statement. “We have been overwhelmed by the positive reaction to our 370 Venture. To receive such attention and recognition underscores our commitment to create innovative, consistently excellent boats.”

The award was presented in Boating’s January 2013 issue. “Boating’s Tech Team tested more than 100 boats in 2012. In addition to performance data and commentary, Boating boat tests assess how a given boat compares to the other in the same category,” said the article announcing the award.

“Sea Ray’s 370 Venture is powered by outboards, cleverly hidden and ingeniously installed. It offers a quieter ride, more stowage and larger accommodations than similar cruisers do. It possesses better shallow water ability and diminished corrosion concerns. In short, Sea Ray’s 370 Venture represents a category of one.”
