Broker's Comments

The Newbridge Venturer was designed as an easily handled junk rigged cruising yacht, suitable for coastal and estuary cruising, although some have ventured further afield and are capable of such in the right hands.

The draw back to traditional junk rig is its relatively poor performance in light airs however the Swing Wing aerofoil rig designed by Robin Blain, Technical Secretary of the Junk Rig Association, comes in.

This rig combines the low stresses and easy tacking ability of the traditional junk rig with the improved windward performance of a modern wing sail. This translates into comparable or superior performance on all points of sail when compared with a Bermudian rigged Venturer. Tests show her to be capable of tacking through less than 90 degrees, to be faster off the wind and with a reduced heeling angle, all combined with ease of handling.

This yacht is presented in immaculate order by her experianced seafaring owner, and comes well equipped for coastal cruising, with a particularly impressive array of ground tackle. Her motor is powerful and she also benefits from a tender and nearly new outboard. All in all, a little beauty!
