Owned since March 1998. We have cruised for a few weeks each summer except last year. Also occasional day and weekend sails in and around the Solent. Cruises along the English Coast from Eastbourne to the Helford, French Coast from Carentan to Treguier including Channel Islands.
“MOONFLEET” has been taken out of the water every year for antifouling and fitting out.
The Victoria 34 is a modern classic design by Chuck Paine. They have a powerful sailing performance, thanks to a moderate to heavy displacement. With a superior build quality, they make an excellent, long distance, family cruiser, with practical accommodation..
