Ventura Gulfstream Yachts
were designed by Ed Monk, a shipwright and naval architect from the Pacific Northwest of the United States. Monk designed both pleasure boats and commercial vessels, in both power and sail, from 1914 to 1973. He began his career as a naval architect by designing and building his “Plan No. 1,” a 50’ bridge-deck cruiser “Nan,” which became his home for seven years. It was moored at the Seattle Yacht Club, and was also briefly his office. Monk’s designs were built by many of the Pacific Northwest’s finest builders, such as Blanchard Boat Co., Grandy Boat Co., Jensen Motor Boat, Chambers and Franck, Forder Boatworks, McQueen Boat Works, and Tollycraft among others. Ventura Gulfstream offers all the fun and freedom you’d expect of boat ownership, with easy upkeep and maintenance.
