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.

CHARITY has been cherished by her current owners who have maintained the boat in a fastidious manner. During the currently ownership she has benefitted from constant maintenance and upgrading.
