Here is boat-building tradition at its glorious best. Practical Boat Owner called this 6-berth
double-ender "a serious cruiser" with a "rugged feel and powerful, easy-going gait". Her manners and balance are impeccable: "...with both sails set, she could be sailed round in circles without touching the sheets."

My first surprise came when I manoeuvred her out of her rather tight marina berth at Shamrock Quay. She turned under power, virtually in her own length, with as much power as was needed in her diesel engine. I say surprising because I knew that she has a full length keel that is not conducive to a tight turning circle, but maybe I had forgotten that this boat has the making of a thoroughbred. I became more and more annoyed with Peter as the day went on because I realised that this boat not only had a turn of speed it also had sea keeping qualities that made it an ideal boat for the rugged conditions that the Round Britain
Race was likely to demand.
Maya's previous owners have sailed her to Ireland and to Scotland, her current owners to Belgium, France and Holland but also for day and weekend sailing. There is no doubt that the Victoria 30 is a fast cruiser with ocean crossing potential.
Maya has the benefit of new rigging, wheel steering, very few hours on the engine and copper-loaded bottom paint to eliminate the need for antifouling for a few years to come.
Here is a go anywhere boat that should look after you!
