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". This 1986 boat is a rare tiller steered example, and is in very good order, with recent sails and brand new upholstery. She is for sale now only because the owner is reluctantly giving up ownership due to age.

Sailplan

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. These boats were built to Lloyds specs, with solid GRP hulls and balsa-cored decks. The design continued in production from 1985 to around 2000. The Victoria 34 was designed to be either tiller or wheel steered, this yacht being fitted with a tiller, which has 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.

The hull is in what appears to be the original blue-grey gelcoat which is in excellent condition for her age. The keel is a moderate draught lead fin with small wings at the aft end of the base. The rudder is skeg-hung.

Ashore quarter

Although designed by an American, the Victoria 34 is very much what the designer himself called "British traditional": a solid all-weather cruiser with good performance without stressing the crew. This example has excellent sails, new upholstery and has clearly been well cared for.
