The Victoria 34 was launched at the 1986 London Earl’s Court boatshow in answer to the growing demand from the companies existing client base for a large boat to follow on from the success of the Victoria 30 and Francis 26. Designed by the highly regarded naval architect Chuck Paine the Victoria 34 was instantly recognisable as a development of the popular VIC 30, retaining the classic appearance and eye pleasing sheer line.
