Designed in the late 1970's by American yacht designer Chuck Paine the Victoria 30 has enjoyed production runs with builders on both sides of the Atlantic and has built a loyal following of owners and admirers. The design is unmistakably traditional with a full canoe body, full-length deep keel and canoe stern creating a very sea kindly hull form which performs well in all weathers.
A much loved example of this popular canoe sterned cruiser. LILAC DOMINO benefits from being fitted with wheel steering and not having had teak decks fitted when new.

The heads sink faucet doubles as a shower head with the tray draining into the bilge.

The settees both convert to well proportioned single berths with lee cloths for use as sea berths while on passage. The starboard bunk extends out to create an occasional double berth when required. The saloon table cleverly folds up flat against the bulkhead to the starboard side of the mast. With the table down a shelved storage unit opens up on the bulkhead. Storage is provided within the cabin in a mixture of cave type lockers behind the seat back cushions and opening lockers and shelf outboard of the seating.
