Victory ’83 is for sale!
Victory’83 (K-22) is an International 12 Metre yacht based in Newport, RI. Over the past twelve years, Victory ’83 has earned an enviable record with a World and numerous North American Championships as well as many fleet and regional wins. All good things must come to an end and so the time has come for a new custodian to take the reins.
Despite the frigid temps, warmer weather and the sailing season are fast approaching. The Twelve Metre Class and in particular, the North American Fleet are looking forward to a return to the Race course. The addition of new teams to the Modern Division strengthen its position as the place to be for exciting on the water action and competition.
Victory ’83 represents a unique opportunity to join the Modern Division with a highly competitive and fully tuned Twelve Metre. She has been restored and updated to the highest standard. Complete program for sale including tender and container.
Victory’83 has always been fast: two time World Champion (1984 Porto Cervo and 2009 Newport) The race results since 2008 tell the tale of a very fast boat in all conditions. Numerous fleet and regional wins including many North American Championships. Winner of the 2019 Pre-Worlds and first to finish in the Twelve Metre Around the Island Fleet Race against Twelves of all Divisions. The current owner has done the hard work of restoring the boat and getting her fully tuned up. He is now “retired” and ready to pass the torch to a new team.
The new deck layout and systems, known as the “Victory Job”, are the envy of the Gran Prix and Modern Divisions. Victory ’83 sports a deep sail inventory including three carbon mainsails; the latest was new for the 2019 Worlds Season. She has a large inventory of spares. Victory ’83 comes with 2+ sets of running rigging, a full set of foul weather gear and all required 12mR outfit including safety gear.
A key feature of the 2008 refit was a complete re-configuration of the deck and cockpits to optimize sail and boat handling for the larger crew size permitted in the current Class Rule.
