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.
