Victoria 34

Brief details

Builder

Victoria Marine, Warsash, Southampton.

The Victoria 34 is a modern classic, a traditional styled cruising yacht with a very high quality build and fit-out. Shortly after the design was introduced, 'Yachting Monthly' reviewed the boat and commented "....Conservative through and through, she is deceptively fast and powerful too". Good examples can command high prices.

Keel type

Fin keel with skeg-hung rudder

Designed for Victoria Marine by American Chuck Paine, whose cruising boats are always geared towards genuine sea-going, the Victoria 34 has a longish shallow fin keel and a strong skeg-hung rudder. The boats were built to Lloyds specs, with solid GRP hulls and balsa-cored decks. The design continued in production from 1985 to around 2000. Victoria Marine could make minor changes to internal fittings as a semi-custom build, so not all are identical.

 

The Victoria 34 was designed to be either tiller or wheel steered, the tiller having considerable advantages both in "feel" of the helm and the ability to raise the tiller when moored to free up cockpit space. She has a moderate draught lead fin keel with small wings at the aft end.


Very traditional in appearance (looking almost like a mini version of Paine's bigger Bowmans), the Victoria 34 was chosen as one of the models bought by the Army as adventure training yachts. They were always expensive boats for their size, and this shows in the quality of the joinery and equipment.
