We are pleased to present our newest Valiant offering, a very special Valiant 42 Pullman layout named GOSI. This boat is the reason we ordered a Pullman layout for our V42. We believe that it is the very best layout for a serious cruising couple because of the additional storage! Valiant Yachts was in continuous production for 35 years and built only a handful of Pullman layout boats.

GOSI’s owners bought her new for the purpose of exploring the world with a live aboard home they could take anywhere. They have lived aboard for the past years after selling their home in Annapolis. They have lavished GOSI with continuous upgrades, always keeping her in top notch condition. They explored the world and even got jobs in New Zealand and in Singapore so that could afford to maintain their “home” on GOSI. Over the years and the miles she’s had several substantial refits and she’s been repowered with a Yanmar 55hp diesel to replace the standard Westerbeke 44 along with a new Northern Lights 5KW generator. The interior is in “like new” condition and the topsides have just been repainted. She is proven and rigged for sailing safely and comfortably.  If you are a sailor with serious cruising in mind, you should consider GOSI a Valiant 42 Pullman!

If you and your loved one are looking for a cruising boat, you will want to know why the Valiant 42 has remained the top choice for cruising couples and solo sailors. Well, here is a boat that will take care of you. She is easy to sail single hand, or double hand as a cruising couple. The cutter rig provides a divided sail plan where everything is of manageable size. On deck, everything is designed and planned for safety at sea everything from the hard dodger to the solid stern rails and the winches within easy reach of the helm provides well thought out functionality that translates to comfort and safety.

Maybe even more important at least to some of us is the fact that the Valiant is built like a tank; she a serious ocean going vessel, which is to say she is built for the ocean, incredibly tough, robustly dependable. The solid hand laid fiberglass hull is literally overbuilt and literally everything about the boat is seriously upsized for strength which gives you and your mate great confidence in all conditions. The systems installations are top notch with everything properly engineered and installed in a way that makes it easy for you to maintain the boat anywhere in the world. You can actually access every single piece of the boat. Every piece, tanks, engine, everything can come out the companionway the way it came in!

The Valiant 42 Pullman interior is extremely livable for a cruising couple. You have everything you need and you have more storage than the queen V-berth arrangement! The forepeak storage area is a great place for that spinnaker that is always taking up space. And the Pullman layout with the double berth high up to port, gives you wonderful storage below and also on the starboard side of the cabin. The salon is a little smaller on the Pullman which is fine for a live aboard couple. You still have sea berths port and starboard. And when you’re a cruising couple, you don’t really need a huge entertaining salon. Remember, the ideal boat serves sundowners for six, dinner for four, and sleeps two! It’s cozy and perfect. The Pullman layout gives you the same amazing galley and famous pantry, the large forward facing nav station, the perfect bathroom with stall shower and the aft stateroom which is your off-watch berth right at the companionway, your garage or a lovely guest room. The Valiant 42 Pullman GOSI is a wonderful home and the best world cruising voyager you could ever wish for.
