Notes

Derived from the earlier MINUET.
Two versions were built; A sloop and a very limited edition cutter with a bowsprit.
The number built listed is only a rough approximation.
Just before the factory closed, a VICTORIA 17 was introduced, a shortened version of the 18 with an outboard rudder. It is thought that they exist in very small numbers.

Victoria Yachts was a company founded by the designers son, Bill McVay.
The location was:
203 Benson Junction Road
DeBarry, Florida 32713 USA
