Valiant Yachts

Valiant Yachts are known for their legendary sailing performance, quality construction, safety and comfort at sea. With the ability to customize, dedication to quality, and attention to detail, Valiant Yachts can truly personalize each boat to suit the owner's individual needs and tastes. Designed by renowned naval architect, Robert Perry, every Valiant utilizes proven concepts such as the cutter rig, modified fin keel, skeg rudder, and canoe stern to create true offshore sailing magic. It's why experienced cruising sailors and newcomers to blue water sailing continue to choose Valiant for their offshore adventures. Please read on to learn more about Valiant Yachts - the cruising boat for sailors who actually go cruising!

The Valiant 40 is a fast, offshore yacht. Her clean and efficient design gives her a remarkable ability to point high while footing fast and makes her safe, comfortable and exhilarating. She has a stable, easily driven hull powered by a closed-winded, versatile rig.

Her hull features a modern split appendage, fin-keel and skef-rudder combination. She has a graceful sheer rising to a flared bow and a salty, tumblehome canoe stern. Minimal overhangs fore and aft, coupled with canoe stern, contribute to a long- sailing length, with a bonus of increased space below decks.

The bow flare is ample for a dry boat and it provides both a safe, workable foredeck and reserve buoyancy to keep the bow from diving in a seaway. Likewise, the stern parts a following sea in the same fashion as a "double-ender" while adding sufficient reserve buoyancy to keep the boat dry and reduce the chance of pooping. There is also a moderate bustle development aft that increases the effective sailing length.

Without question, we feel that Valiant is the best-constructed production yacht in the United States, built for serious, appreciative yachtsmen.

The new Valiant 39 has once again set a pace that only others can follow. With its newly expanded sail plan featuring a double spreader rig mast and anchor-bowsprit, performance and balance has never been better.

Valiant's new custom fabricated mast rig with anchor/bowsprit provide a maximum sail area and excellent helm balance. All Valiant spars are through-deck stepped to insure maximum strength. These combinations give each Valiant plenty of sail power while keeping things simple enough for a couple to manage and maintain, even under strenuous conditions. And a full complement of oversize selftailing offshore winches make it possible for even the smallest member of the crew to trim sails.

The Valiant 39 incorporates the same proven offshore hull form with a structural skeg mounted rudder and a state of the art keelfoil. This powerful combination insures excellent control and tracking on and off the wind. And the external, bolted on lead ballast provides excellent defense against accidental grounding, while it also allows for a low stabilizing center of gravity which optimizes performance and safety.

Valiant's years of success have caused Valiant to refine an unprecedented tradition (rather than resting on its laurels) in the development of the NEW VALIANT 37 ESPRIT.

This beautiful yacht is the culmination of the vast knowledge that can only be gained by experience. The new Valiant 37 embodies all that has made Valiant the "ultimate" in sailing yachts. It is a contemporary statement of the Valiant tradition.

The Valiant 37's combination of speed and luxury has caught the attention of sailors who have ignored cruising yachts because of their lack of performance. The 37 is oriented more toward high performance and was designed to fill the gap between the racing yacht and the "performance cruiser."

The philosophy is simple. The Valiant 37 combines current technology for both comfort and speed. This results in a deck layout that would do justice to a Gran Prix racing yacht and an interior that is consistent with the Valiant standard of quality and luxury. The Valiant 37 is truly the refinement of a revolution.

Valiant has spared no expense engineering the highly efficient technology necessary to reduce cost without sacrificing traditional Valiant quality. The result is the NEW VALIANT 32--The ultimate bluewater performance cruiser at a reasonable price.

The Valiant 32 draws upon the experience of the famous Valiant 40, voted by readers of SAIL Magazine as the "Cruising Boat of the Decade." The 32 is an easily handled yacht--ideal for a cruising couple--with the same fin keel and skeg mounted rudder design that has made the Valiant 40 so fast and responsive. The canoe stern, excellent in confused or following seas, has been retained; high bulwarks forward and relatively flared bow keep the 32 dry and comfortable. Both designs have made Valiant Yachts one of the most successful and talked about yacht builders in the country.
