Through the 1970s and 80s Newbridge Boats, later known as NB Yachts, were based first in Bridport and later in Chard, and built a number of small yachts, the first of which were the low elegant Corribee 21s and the heavier, chunkier Virgo Voyager 23s.
Although both were popular, the market market soon demanded more interior space than could be squeezed into the elegant little hull of the Corribee, and the Voyagers were too big and heavy for easy trailing, so Bill Dixon (designer of many large Moodys) was commissioned to design two trailer-sailers for the company. 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, although a few have been modified to fit a small diesel.
Fin keels and centreboards were offered as options, but the vast majority of Navigators and Venturers built were the bilge keel versions.
