Victoria 30

World renown, modern classic from the board of Chuck Paine.

Owner very keen to sell.

Rarely available, this Victoria 30 has been on the market for a while now and the owner is keen for her to be sold.

Owned by a professional mariner, this boat comes simply equipped but easy to maintain.

The Victoria 30's were built by Northshore Yachts in the UK, most to Lloyds specification and differ to the US built boats of the same design, known as the Leigh 30's, by having encapsulated internal ballast.

These boats are particularly well balanced and a joy sail both in coastal waters or offshore. The Victoria 30's are not a typical long keeled yacht, Chuck Paine drew a fair canoe body and treated the keel as an appendage rather than part of the under body. This made the boats stiffer and more able to carry sail and tracked much better than a traditional boat of the same style.

Currently shrink wrapped and stored ashore in our yard, here in Portsmouth, RI and viewed by appointment.

The current owner has embarked on another project and is keen to sell the Victoria, so reasonable offers will certainly be considered.
