Valiant! A Great Bluewater Boat!
There is a reason we sail a new Valiant 42, there's a reason why we sailed a Valiant 40 for many years! After 30 years in continous production, Valiant remains a proven bluewater voyager for single handers and couples. It is amazing that the Valiant 40 was designed in 1973! A very young Robert H. Perry (who just happens to be our good friend "Bob") actually created something really "new" with his modern underbody, long cruising fin keel and skeg-hung rudder. It was a bold departure, almost radical at the time, from the popular heavy displacement designs of the 70s. Indeed, the Valiant became the first "performance cruiser". That performance was quickly demonstrated by the ocean racers of the 80s with the Singlehand Trans-Atlantic races and the BOC Challenge. When Mark Schrader set the world record for the fastest circumnavigation beneath all five southern capes, the capabilities of the Valiant 40 was proven. What is truly amazing is that this proven ocean racer then became the most desireable choice for a cruising couple or solo sailor. The reason is that the Valiant provides the ultimate combination of strength, stability, performance, safety, and comfort. In 1997, the Valiant was recognized with its induction into the American Sailboat Hall of Fame for its contribution as a vessel that has profoundly influenced the sport of sailing and by its sheer excellence, has made sailing better!

Considering a New Valiant?
Take Advantage of Our Experience! With 30 years of successful production, Valiant Yachts has evolved the process to the point where each Valiant is semi custom. Not only can you choose from several layouts, the deck mold allows for placement of hatches and the interior design allows for selection of many, many "custom" features. There are some very important considerations involved in every aspect of the process. We specified customizations based on years of boat ownership and miles at sea. We had this Valiant 42 built to show you what a true blue water boat looks like completely equipped for voyaging. Most Dealers have a very stripped down boat for your to see. This boat is fully equipped the way you will want your Valiant. So, why not take advantage of our experience. We researched every single peice of equipment and we have reasons for everything we did, or did not do. We can point out the value of every feature and option. You can buy this boat and truly benefit from our experience. If you desire to build your own Valiant, we would love to provide our expertise as your consultant as you order and specify your own new Valiant. Why not take advantage our our experience.
