Manufacturer and Design Information

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.

'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"
