I am considering purchasing a 1982 Victoria 26, any thoughts?

I am new to sailing but I have operated power boats a lot in the past. I am looking for a smaller sailboat to learn on and to spend the weekend on with the wife here in Georgia. I found a nice looking 1982 Victoria 26 for sale online but I am out of state working at the moment so I canít go take a look at it. Looking on line at Sailboatdata.com the production run was very very small, something like 25 I believe. I am not sure if that is a bad thing or a good thing? I like that is has an inboard and wheel, instead of a tiller. If anyone has any information on this sailboat that would be great.

If it has the original OMC saildrive. I would stay away, there are no parts available and a repower would cost twice the worth of the boat

Overbored - I must have missed the info in the boat add but it says "BMW D-7 Diesel w/New BMW Transmission 2012" Looking at the pictures provided it looks to be an inboard drive system and not a saildrive.

Nice, clean looking boat. Not a bad price if the engine is running nicely. I would try to get the trailer as well. It might save you money in the long run.

William McVay's Victoria 18 was a sweet little boat. I'm not familiar with the 26' though.

Is it a KCB the keel looks pretty stubby. Is the rudder deeper than the keel? No matter its a beautiful boat a lot for the money I think.

Pictures can be deceiving. Still a nice looking boat.
