Broker's Comments

The Victor 40 Ketch is rare to the market This example was completed in 1991 and unfortunately due to ill health has been little used with only 84 engine hours recorded.
The interior has been lovingly finished in teak and is in excellent condition. The owners cabin aft is airy and spacious with an en-suite heads.
The non slip deck areas have recently been repainted and is in excellent condition.
Highly recommended for a sailor who wants to go places in comfort.

I'd love to sail her around the Hebrides...but unlikely to find the resources. (Sad face!)
