Our heavy-duty black mesh Venture 15 Straight Hull catamaran trampoline is very well built with these unique features:
Adjustable hiking straps
Made of high-quality and very durable black trampoline mesh (8oz. polypropylene basket weave mesh)
Sewn with large size V-138 UV-stabilized polyester thread
At least six rows of stitching in high-load areas
Multi-layer construction in high-stress sections to better spread the load: three layers of mesh and a layer of webbing
We personally pounds each #4 spur grommet by hand (spur grommets are tough; they have 'teeth' that bite into the fabric)
One-year warranty against defects in materials and workmanship
Twp Sections: port & starboard sides
Available Options (at an extra cost):
Tenara Teflon Thread - By adding this option to your trampoline order we'll sew your new SLO Sail and Canvas trampoline in Tenara Teflon thread by Gore. Tenara has a 15 year warranty in the sun. If you store your boat on the beach this is the best thing you can add to extend the life of your trampoline. Our standard thread is a V-138 polyester thread that is UV stabilized and will last 5-7 years+ in the sun.
Zippered Pocket - A larger zippered pocket perfect to hold water bottles, lunch, or sunscreen. The pocket dimensions are roughly 15"x18" and 4" tall. Dimensions may vary slightly depending on the trampoline because of other things getting in the way of a bigger pocket such as hiking straps and lacing grommets, trapeze grommets, jib strop grommets etc. We put the pocket inboard of the hiking straps on Hobie 14 and Hobie 16's on the starboard side of the trampoline. Prindle trampolines will have the zippered pocket on the port side of the trampoline inboard of the hiking straps and opposite the standard halyard pocket we include on all trampolines.
Lace Kit - Pre cut 1/4" (and sometimes 1/8") line to lace up your new trampoline. Available in white or black.
This is a listing for the Straight Hull model trampoline only.
This trampoline requires partial disassembly of your boat. Be sure that you can disassemble your boat before purchasing this trampoline.
If you need the banana hull style trampoline please look in our other listings for either the 1pc. Banana Hull or 2pc. Banana Hull trampoline. The trampolines are totally and completely different from one another.
There is considerable variation in the widths of the Venture 15 straight hull models. Please measure the width between the boltrope tracks on your boat and let us know the width. We have seen boats ranging from 56" to 59" wide. Be sure to measure both at the bow and stern end of the tracks as this can be different as well.

The Venture Cat line was produced by MacGreggor in the late 70's through the 80's and possibly into the 90's. If you have a Venture 15 you should check which model you have. There were two basic styles manufactured a 'Straight Hull' and 'Banana Hull' version. The straight hull model somewhat resembles a Prindle 16 hull shape whereas the banana hull model has a considerable amount of rocker like a Hobie 16.
