Anyone know the Victoire 28?
 
I''m trying to get information about a Dutch-built, 28-foot yacht called the Victoire 28. It was made in Holland in the early 70''s. Does anyone know anything about this boat? What kind of reputation does it have and is it suitable for going offshore? Are there any problems associated with this model a buyer should be wary of? (aside from the usual things to expect in a 30 year old boat) I would love to hear from a Victoire 28 owner to get some feedback. Thanks,
Mark

I do own a victoire 28 from 1973. Ther are two "weak" points: the construction of the mastfoot and the rigging brackets, but they can be made stronger very easy. I do have the original folders for this boat, and some of the equipment

Thanks for the tips G. Marinssen.
I''m getting the feeling this isn''t a well-known boat in the US ...
The thing is, there is one for sale at a really reasonable price and I just can''t seem to find any information on this boat. Does it sail well? What is the construction quality? Are you satisfied with yours? Would you recommend this boat? If you can give me your overall view on the boat I''d be more than grateful. I''ve been looking for a good used 28 to 32 foot sailboat for a while here in Brazil (where I now live)and I can tell you there aren''t many options here. Thanks again.
