Description

This wonderful pocket cruiser has been impeccably maintained by only three owners.  From the drawing boards of Chuck Paine, the Victoria Frances 26 is almost identical to the Morris Frances 26 but with added interior volume due to a cabin that reaches further forward.  The Frances is a proven design capable of cruising the coast or crossing oceans.  She is very well balanced and easy to sail in anything from light winds to a heavy breeze with all halyards, sheets and reef lines led back to the cockpit.  This Victoria was imported by Morris Yachts and sold in 1987 to her first owners.  Upgraded with a new Yanmar engine in 2006, and new cutlass bearings, PYI shaft seal, shaft, and prop in 2013.  Her current owner has continued to improve her with upgrades to the electrical system, new interior varnish, upgraded deck hardware and more.  She must be seen to be appreciated.
