FIREFLY is a beautiful Victoria Frances 26. Designed by Chuck Paine she is almost identical to the Morris Frances, but with added interior volume due to a cabin that reaches further forward. This extra space allows for a enclosed head. Recent upgrades include a complete bottom strip with a new barrier coat (2013) and a completely rebuilt Yanmar engine (2014). The Victoria 26 is known for easy handling, sea worthy comfort, and a deceptive turn of speed that the Frances has become known for. Stored indoors with Morris Yachts.
