Bill Dixon (designer of many large Moodys) was commissioned to design two trailer-sailers for Newbridge. The results were the smaller Navigator, and the larger Venturer 22.
These had modern high-volume hulls, with the visual effect of high topsides and substantial cabin tops disguised by styling stripes of paintwork. The end result is to pack a lot of accommodation into a small trailable hull. These boats were built to take outboards in wells in the cockpit and built as bilge keelers.
A compact trailer-sailer with good accommodation for her size, the Venturer makes a good small coastal or estuary cruiser, and is small enough to be trailed if required
This neat and tidy Newbridge Venturer has an interesting story. Although this vessel was built in 1988, the first owner passed away and the vessel went into long term dry storage. We're told she wasn't actually launched until 2008 and this was onto Rutland Water, an inland freshwater lake.
The sails and some of the other equipment were still in their original packaging until then. We understand that the Porta Potti has still not been used and the first time she ventured into salt water was 2014.
She had new standing rigging in 2014, new windows in 2015 and a new engine in 2019
An easy to handle, stiff little boat, a great little weekend cruiser boat sensibly priced.
