Tyler mouldings were all hand laid and below the waterline only clear resins were used. Woven rovings and chopped strand mat were used alternately and longtitudinal stringers were moulded in using continuous rovings.

Broker's Comments

Where do I start.. Ok, if you wanted to buy a boat that was a serious blue water cruiser, capable of taking you just about anywhere in the world, had been maintained to a very high standard, provided a proven history of long passages, has the equipment, accommodation and storage capacity to set off with the minimum fuss, then this could be the boat to make your dreams come true.
Victory 40's have been used on the ARC, this particular Victory has been with her current owner for 10 years, who has explores the Western Isles of Scotland, Southern Ireland and Northern France.
It was a pleasure to step aboard and spark the dream. I am sure that you will be as impressed as I was.
