Broker Remarks

Brokers Remarks:
This Victoria 30 is a really nice example she has been lovingly maintained and has a full service log to prove it.
The current owner has cruised her locally around the south west coastline and raves about her true sea keeping qualities, if you are looking for a well built cruiser then the Victoria 30 is something that should be considered. She is a proper sailors yacht that will take you anywhere.
The Victoria is spacious below decks, with a good size saloon with plenty of head room for a 30 footer, she has a proper chart table, so when cruising chart work is a doddle, she also has ample accommodation for four people and a really good aft quarter sea berth for crew to use when passage making.

Owners Remarks:

Jenny Wren has been cruised on the south coast for the past three seasons and is an extremely seaworthy boat in all conditions. After engine and stern drive work she has been entirely mechanically reliable. A stackpack was fitted in 2014 along with new mast winch and other rigging refurbishment (see Weir Quay invoices)
