The VICTORY 21 was first manufactured by Henry R. McCune (later the builder of the YORKTOWN sailboats) as a one-design class boat.
Some 126 boats were built before the operation was sold to Wesco Marine in 1964.
Another model called the AURORA 21 had the same hull but with a larger cabin.
Changes to the original design made by Wesco included making the cockpit self-bailing and installing a sliding hatch on the cabin.
Between 1969 and 1970, the boats were built by Coronado Yachts. Later, production was resumed by Catalina Yachts where it became the CAPRI VICTORY.
