Owner Details & History

Built according to International Third Rule America's Cup

1982 - 1983 Victory Syndicate (Peter de Savary) - name: Victory '82 - home port: Burnham on Crouch (Great Britain). She is the first yacht ordered by Peter De Savary in view of the 1983 25th America's Cup; her design is tested at the Wolfson tank of the University of Southampton; her results are not very encouraging and De Savary commissions a new Twelve, Victory '83, to Iain Howlett.

1983 - 1993 Owner unknown - home port: Falmouth (Great Britain).

Since 1993 Roy Hart - new name: Victory of Burnham - home port: Benfleet, Essex (Great Britain). He found Victory in Falmouth in sound but neglected conditions; he has restored her and since then she is maintained in good shape. In 2001 entered the America's Cup Jubilee with a third placement in its division. For sale (2010) at ?139.000. 2012: price reduced to ?105.000; having been laid up for about nine years, she is in need of restoration (replacing main halliard pulley, deck and gear cleaning and painting, strip out interior).

World Championships Results: 2001 in Cowes (America's Cup Jubilee): third in the Modern division
