In Annapolis......Ready to Sail
Around the World Today AGAIN!!!TURN-KEY READY........Great News
Miss Red has new sails, new hull
paint, perfectly faired bottom, new running rigging, new canvas,
full new electronics, new batteries, new everything.
The famous Valiant 50 that was the
cover girl of the Valiant 50 Brochure is offered for sale! She was
the red one, launched in 2001, commissioned and rigged for a
circumnavigation by her first owners, a serious sailing couple. She
was outfitted with a wonderful Leisurefurl in-boom furling system
and is upgraded with new Navtec rod rigging and a new suite of
sails. Her bottom was sand blasted to baby smooth with new barrier
coat and new bottom paint. She has been lightly used for the past
six years and constantly maintained and upgraded.
The Leisurefurl in boom furling
system and a dozen other advantages to make sailing easy and safe.
In 2009, she received the award from Valiant Yachts for being the
first to circumnavigate on a Valiant 50! She was restored to perfect
condition by her first owner with a new paint job that is stunning.
Her second owner is rightfully so proud of Miss Red, as she is
called. He has loved and upgraded her with new rod rigging, new
electronics, new sails and storm sails as well as all the safety gear.
For the first few years, Miss Red,
cruised New England in the summer roaming from Annapolis to Newport
to Block Island and Nantucket and all the lovely spots. In 2014 she
and her captain and crew were getting ready for the Newport to
Bermuda Race! This was the really big adventure and in preparation,
Miss Red received the royal treatment and lavish expense account.
She easily passed the rigorous safety inspection required for entry.
She made a good passage and was definitely noticed! After a double
hand return to the shore of Massachusetts in early June, 2015, she
made the trip to Nova Scotia! It’s true what they say…the fog is
mostly off the coast! Miss Red enjoyed the whole summer up there.
The sail back was exciting with 25 knot winds in fog with 40 degree
weather. Miss Red performed flawlessly and everything worked from
the new B&G navigation system to the mechanicals. She was
flawless. In 2016, Miss Red again made the trip to Bermuda,
completing the journey in four days with winds of every variety from
storm force to the infamous light and variable “Bermuda High”. Miss
Red sailed beautifully through it all and we are not surprised!
Miss Red sailed from Bermuda to Charleston, SC, where she is
Where ever she goes, Miss Red is
noticed! They call her Big Red! Up in Nova Scotia at the NS Royal
Yacht Squadron, she drew crowds both on and off the water. In
Bermuda, many crew from other boats and even staff from the Royal
Bermuda Yacht Club came to visit and “take a look”. Just look at the
pictures. She is amazingly spectacular!
We especially love this Valiant 50
because she has served both her owners so very well. This is a rare
opportunity to own a famous Valiant 50 that is absolutely proven.
She circumnavigated with hardly a hiccup while other cruisers
suffered failures and breakdowns. I guess this is why Valiant is the
choice for solo sailors and for live aboard cruising couples. It is
because safety and dependability are the foremost reasons that
couples choose Valiant. It’s quality! Valiant construction is second
to none! This is one of the strongest boats you could possible own.
The equipment installation is superior and maintainable anywhere in
the world. It’s Performance! The Valiant 50’s speed and sailing
characteristics in all conditions are proven beyond doubt. The
Valiant 50 is a magnificent powerful sailing vessel that faster and
more comfortably than its sailing companions including many other
high caliber vessels. It’s proven! This proven design and hull shape
with its classic Bob Perry cruising fin keel and skeg hung rudder
has proved a well mannered race horse. She tracks straight and true.
She is easily balanced and steered by her auto pilot. In her
previous life, she sailed around the world steered by the autopilot
in all conditions even flying the spinnaker for days on end. Sailors
on other boats had to hand steer at the least pleasant of times!
She’s easy to sail. Sailing
short-handed, means one person must to feel comfortable and secure
in all conditions, whether taking friends for a cruise or sailing
the coast as a couple, or circumnavigating the world when two small
people easily sailed the boat in all conditions without crew on any
passage. Miss Red is equipped with an in-boom furling mainsail
Leisurefurl system and Schaefer roller furling headsails the boat is
properly rigged with an electric winch and she is extremely easy to sail.
