Valiant 42

Sailaway Package

Valiant Yachts are designed and built for the shorthanded crew. The new Valiant 42 has once again set a pace that only other can follow. With its newly expanded sail plan featuring a double spreader rig mast and anchor-bowsprit, performance and balance has never been better. And as with all Valiant Yachts, that comfortable offshore ride is ever present. From its fine bow entry to its classic rounded-tumble home stern, the Valiant hull design provides the strength and impact resistance that veteran sailors look for in a world class performance cruiser.

When it’s just you against mother nature’s worst in the middle of the ocean, do you want anything less than a Valiant?
