Sailed Only Once, Never Touched Ocean Salt Water,  Covered Most Of Her Life, Less Than 96 Original Hours On Her Diesel, Less Than 10 Original Hours On Her GenSet. An Amazing Offering. For World Voyaging, One CAN NOT Find Any Better Of A Boat To Do It In.

An amazing opportunity presents itself! If you have been mourning the loss of one of the greatest boat builders ever…if you were always going to buy one…you need to act now! There is one last Valiant 50 available. Sailed only once. As new as new can get.

You already know that the Valiant is legendary. This is the standard against which blue water boats are measured. More cruising couples and solo sailors have chosen Valiant than any other boat. The Valiant 50 was developed in 1997 based on a modernization of the Valiant 47 made famous by several solo circumnavigations. As you read all the details in the full specs, we have tried to do justice to this incredible last Valiant 50. This is the last one, and she just might be the best one. Here are some highlights…

While Valiant builds every boat to robust and exacting standards, each new owner can specify details and customize the boat. Many new owners do not have experience to plan ahead, but this owner had a lot of experience! His goal was to use his experience to define the specifications for the ultimate comfortable, safe, and maintenance free tropical cruising experience. While so many Valiant owners were drawn to a beautiful solid color hull, he chose a beautiful White which is so much cooler for life in the tropics. Instead of the traditional Valiant cove stripe, he spec’d a single blue line stem to stern that is so elegant. The decks are a cream that is soft on your eyes in the tropical sun, and I think he copied that from us and a few other specifics we love!

Every system from electrical requirements to plumbing was carefully considered based on the real experience.

With regard to safety, having sailed thousands of ocean miles, he understood that you must plan for the weather you certainly hope you will never see.  Valiant is probably among the strongest boats built and starting with that as a platform he set out to make the boat even stronger! He had the factory add an additional layer of 1.5 oz matt and 24 oz woven roving from the keel sump to the sheer, so indeed, this Valiant 50 is the strongest of the strong. A single thru hull for water intake supplies the engine, generator, deck wash down, and water maker which was to be installed later. There are only four thru hulls in the boat, all on the starboard side for easy access, and all with bronze ball valve sea cocks! Extra cleats and chocks mid ship are installed in solid fiberglass to make it so much more secure when you tie up the boat for a hurricane. He enjoyed planning for every event that will likely not ever happen, but….so he had Valiant build custom stern hardware (essentially two robust and firmly anchored chain plates!) that allow for a bulletproof means of attaching a drogue. Wow!

No big Maintenance Ever was the goal. Everything that could be done to make the boat totally trouble free ever, was done. Sometimes at great cost! Well, his cost! Your benefit! For example, there is solid fiberglass in lieu of high density foam in critical areas including chain plates, staysail track, handrails. There is high density foam instead of Balsa in other areas. He looked at every aspect of the build and upgraded it. Truly this boat will last forever! Every known point of wear has been addressed with an upgrade. For example the chain locker bulkhead has an extra layer of fiberglass. How do you make the world’s toughest boat tougher! More!

The interior was also well thought out based on his cruising in the tropics and what really works at sea and at anchor. Valiant did not need too many tweaks; however, he still took advantage of every opportunity to make the boat even better. Every item was considered in terms of comfort and safety.

This vessel took over a year and a half to complete at a cost of near 850K. PLUS ANOTHER 100K for the generator/espar and two ac/heat systems after build. We have the invoices also for sails, electronics, and safety gear to include $150K in inventory purchased separately, including all the electronics, radar, plotter, SSB, sailing instruments, Quantum sails, Dinghy, and safety gear. One more trip to West Marine is all you need to hop aboard and sail anywhere. This is even better than buying a brand new boat, someone did it for you.
