Victory 40/41 or Trintella IV

Brief details

Builder

Various builders, all on Tyler GRP mouldings

The Victory 41 is a development of the Victory 40/Trintella IV design by van de Stadt. All these have an excellent aft cabin under a raised poop deck, the main differences being that the Victory 41 has an internal walk-through to the aft cabin. The yacht illustrated is the only Victory 41 to be sloop-rigged, and as such is very much a 100:100 motorsailer, having a big powerful rig on a traditional long-keeled sailing hull, plus a very powerful diesel. Most others are ketch rigged, which many feel are easier to handle.

Victory 41

The Victory 40 was designed by E. G. van de Stadt in 1969, and from 1970 the hulls were moulded by Tyler Boats in Tonbridge, Kent, who along with Halmatic were regarded as one of the best GRP moulders in the UK. The hull is solid GRP with chopped strand and woven rovings, and with clear gelcoat used in underwater areas. The hulls were always fitted with stringers, bulkheads and tanks before leaving Tylers.

The hulls were mostly fitted out by Aberdour Marine in Scotland as Victory 40s, and by Anne Wever in Holland who sold the completed boats as Trintella IVs. All these were normally ketch-rigged - in the 1970s it was thought that sloop rigs in boats that size were too difficult to handle by family crews. These boats were generally fitted either with fixed windscreens a la Hallberg-Rassy or with open-backed wheelhouses. Over 100 of these V40/Trintella boats were built, and many have made long passages.

After a fire at the Tyler factory destroyed the Victory 40 moulds, a new mould was made with some subtle changes, including under-deck access to the aft cabin, and three Victory 41s were built before Tylers decided to cease production in favour of more "modern" designs. This yacht is the last of these - and the hull was bought by the present owner to be fitted out to his own requirements. Van de Stadt Design approved the change to sloop rig, and in fact said that the original intention had always been for sloop rig!

Engine

The engine fitted to this yacht is a 5.9 litre Ford Dorset diesel marinised with Ford Mermaid parts. It develops 100 bhp, but this is rarely needed, the owner usually using 1,200 rpm which reportedly gives 8 knots with a fuel consumption of ¾ gallon per hour.
