Sailplan

First produced in the USA as the Leigh 30, the Victoria 30 was designed by Chuck Paine in 1979, as an unashamedly traditional small cruising yacht. Built in the UK from 1982 to the mid 1990s, they are faster than you might expect thanks to a fairly modern hull form, with a long keel added for directional stability. Unlike more traditional long-keelers with a 'wineglass' hullform, there is a clearly defined transition between hull body and keel.

The UK-built Victoria 30s have encapsulated ballast and a slightly different hull layup specification to the Leigh 30s, built by Morris Yachts, which have an external ballast keel, and more detailed timber trim than the British boats. Designer Chuck Paine's website has lines plans of the Leigh 30 - the hull and sailplan of the Victoria 30 is virtually identical.

'Yachting Monthly' described the design as ".... we were impressed by the speeds she attained" and ".... had the sure-footedness and easy motion that you associate with a well-shaped long-keeled yacht of medium displacement"
