We are pleased to present our newest Valiant offering, Miles Away. She is a lightly sailed 2003 Valiant 42 with a queen berth forward. She was built  in Texas during the years when Valiant Yachts was building so many Valiant 42s and 50s. She’s a 12 volt boat, ahead or her time, but in today’s world, with solar power, and 12 volt everything and a big battery bank. She even has an engine driven water maker. I like it  

Miles Away is properly rigged for ocean passage making for safely and comfort with all the sail control in the cockpit!  If you are a solo sailor or cruising couple with serious cruising in mind, you should consider this Valiant!

If you and your loved one are looking for a cruising boat, you will want to know why the Valiant 42 has remained the first choice for cruising couples and solo sailors. This is a boat that will take of you if by yourself, or with your mate. She is easy to sail single hand, or double hand and she is the first choice for a sensible cruising couple. The cutter rig provides a divided sail plan with furling and reefing in the cockpit. The sail plan makes everything is of  a manageable size for actual people. 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 is pretty much alone in this class of sailing with self-sufficiency.

The Valiant 42 center entry queen layout is extremely livable for a cruising couple. You have everything you need and just enough storage. The queen berth up forward is very large. The salon provides sea berths port and starboard. And the aft cabin makes a cozy and comfortable off-watch sleeping berth close to the cockpit which always made me feel more secure.  Remember, the ideal boat serves sundowners for six, dinner for four, and sleeps two! It’s cozy and perfect. The Valiant 42 layout gives you the amazing Bob Perry galley and famous pantry with roll out bins. There is a large forward facing sit down ships office and nav station. And over course the perfect bathroom with stall shower just at the companionway to starboard. To port the aft stateroom is your off-watch berth right at the companionway and it is your generous garage or a lovely guest room. The Valiant 42 is a wonderful home and the perfect couple’s world cruising voyager.
