Victoria 34 wanted to buy

Hi,

I am looking to purchase a Victoria 34 that is located in the United States.  We are on the West Coast, but I would pay to ship the right boat.

If you're interested in selling your boat, please contact me.  We are long-time boat owners and ex-cruisers.  I can promise you that the boat will be well-maintained and well-loved.  You can reach me directly at billiejoewilliams@gmail.com.

Thank you for your consideration.

Billie

Hi Billie,
A Victoria 34 is currently for sale in Scotland. Perhaps too far away for you.
Details available from Boatshed Scotland.

This appears to be one of the ex-Sail Training V34s as used by the joint the British forces (Navy, Airforce, Army).

Thank you, Charles, for letting me know - I was not aware of that website. 

Just wondering, what part of the boat is showing you that it was once used by the British forces?  Is there a color scheme (or lack of scheme, in this case)?

Re: Victoria 34 wanted to buy

Hi Billie,
The initial indication is that it doesn't have a teak toe or cap rail.
Down below, the fit out is quite basic and doesn't have the same high level of finish or trim as per the regular cruising version.
If you watch the videos on the Boat Shed web site (I think that you need to register to view all info), you will see a plate in and around the engine bay which indicates that it is a STC Victoria 34. 12 or so of these V34s were commissioned from memory.
Great boats and well built of course. New engine too which helps.
Hope this helps.
Thanks.
Charlie.
