The Victoria 18 is a sharp looking little boat. I have never even heard of it and I thought that I was pretty well versed in pocket cruisers.

Re: Micro cruisers

McVay built some pretty, pretty boats. There are usually at least 2 Mcvays on our dock during the season-

i am thankful that they were made as well as they were. many have survived quite well to support the secondary market today. those buying yesterdays boat today will one day be buying tomorrow's boats tomorrow!


or, in my case, sailing yesterday's boat tomorrow.

Re: Micro cruisers

The boat sails beautifully. But it's the interior layout that makes it feel so much bigger than it actually is. Also, a foot or so too big for the OP's criteria...

I took those pictures of Ulladh's sloop two years ago. Earlier this year he re-rigged it as balanced lug. So maybe those other pictures were his boat after the modification.

Holy Marconi, Batman! It is the same vessel (i went and checked)! what are the chances of that? well, at this point, about 100%.
