Broker's Comments

To say I was impressed with this Victoria 38 is an understatement, everything just seemed to make sense.
A true blue water vessel, set for long distance cruising, with a wind vane, water maker, cutter rigg and the list goes on.
The owners have been impressed how well the boat has taken care of them, Quote “She has always looked after us in all conditions”
If you are looking for a blue water boat, very well equipped, then you need to come and see her, especially as I have read that there were only four built. The teak decks require some TLS and this is reflected in the price.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
