Newbridge Virgo Voyager 1985

PRICE £5,750

Designed by Ron Lunney in 1972 for Newbridge Boats, the Virgo Voyager is a strongly constructed small cruiser, with good accommodation for its size, providing up to five berths if required, with six foot headroom in the saloon. The high freeboard and cabin top needed to achieve this is disguised considerably by the styling, with wide contrast stripes along the boot-top, under the gunwales, and around the coachroof, where the painted stripe continues the line of the tinted windows.  Clever use of the space inside allows a chart table, heads compartment and galley.  Re-engined in a previous ownership, Friendly Majick is a well maintained example.
