General Description

An Amazing Offering. For World Voyaging, One CAN NOT Find Any Better 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! The Newest Valiant 50 Available.

Accommodations

The Valiant 50 is a luxurious, spacious two-stateroom vessel built to order with owner specified options. The specifications for this Valiant were based on the original owner’s extensive experience living aboard and cruising for five years on a Valiant 42. You are the beneficiary of his knowledge and experience.

The layout overview is as follows. As you come down the companionway there is a large comfortable aft cabin to port and a very large head and stall shower to starboard. Access to the dedicated engine room is through the head on the starboard side, or by lifting the companionway stairs. Moving forward, there is a truly magnificent galley to port with a pantry with four pull out drawers. A sit down navigation station to starboard. The main salon is spacious and comfortable with an U shaped settee to port that makes a double berth and a straight settee to starboard, also an excellent sea berth. Forward is a larger V berth made wider by slightly raising the berth creating even more storage below it, one hanging lockers with storage below, and shelves over the berth outboard. All the space in the forward cabin is used to advantage.

While the boat is built for function, you will admire the quality and the beauty of the workmanship. Quality and craftsmanship are demonstrated in everything from the cabin sole, to the joinery, to the furniture and fixtures, and cushions, which are cream Ultra-leather. The interior woodwork is American Cherry wood with a hand rubbed oil finish that is lovely and grows more and more beautiful with every year. The centerline drop-leaf table is all cherry and has extra coats of Varathane to totally protect it. The cabin sole is teak inlaid with basswood strips coated with satin Varathane. The interior is beautiful woodwork including the bulkheads, cabinetry, and the doors, and drawers, and trim. Formica is used in the head, galley, and ceiling panels. The cream Formica is a light, refreshing counterpoint to the warmth of the woodwork. Ash battens line the hull sides warmly glow with soft satin finish. The cabin interior is light and bright due to the Formica panels trimmed in Cherry on the house sides and ceiling and the many opening ports and hatches. At night the lighting is provided with dome lights and reading lights at the settees and the berths. All the cabin lighting is upgraded to LED and there are red and white lights for safety at the nav-station, and cockpit.

There are many beautiful boats built. What makes Valiant even more impressive is its robust character of strength and endurance. Everywhere you look you will see evidence of Valiant's toughness. The robust construction of a Valiant you observe will be confirmed the very first time you pick up a locking floorboard. While "overbuilt" is the word that comes to mind, how can you over build a boat for the oceans? Valiant's built toughness gives one great confidence. While everything is strong, you'll also see it all very well executed. The drawers are solid Cherry faced with Cedar bottoms and beautiful dovetailed corners and roll out on easy going slides. The lockers have courtesy lights that come on when you open the door. All the cabinets, and lockers securely lock with one hand. The top opening refrigerator and freezer have locks just in case. The Hood stainless steel opening ports and the upgrade to the Hood Stainless Steel hatches is just wonderful. The ports and hatches provide wonderful light and ventilation and you can see they are tough enough for the ocean.


Owner's Stateroom

At anchor, the owner’s stateroom is the classic large queen V berth cabin forward, the most popular layout, and this boat has an even bigger bed because the whole berth is just a tad higher and actually moved aft 18 inches where the boat is wider. It is great. What a difference! You can even sleep athwartship! You can lie there and look at the beautiful Ash battens that line the sides of the berth cabin and the Cherry cabinets on each side. Reading lights (LED) and shelves port and starboard give perfect individual space for each occupant of this spacious double berth. A large cabinet under the berth allows for storage of shoes, and there is loads of deep storage under the berth. In the cabin, there is a hanging locker on the port, with storage underneath, and shelves on the starboard behind a cabinet door. The bi-fold Cherry door provides privacy when you want it yet tucks out of the way.

Main Salon

The salon is extremely spacious with max headroom of 6”4”, and a traditional centerline drop-leaf table and a U- shaped settee to port that pulls right out to a double berth. No fuss. This layout sleeps seven if you want! There are lee cloths for the settees for off shore sailing. There is storage behind the settees, and the port/starboard water tanks below. To starboard there is a straight settee with cabinetry and shelves outboard, and storage behind. The salon is beautiful, with a lovely warm Cherry woodwork and cabinets and a beautiful Teak and Basswood cabin sole. The main salon is light and well ventilated with six opening ports and three opening hatches and two dorades for ventilation. The cushions are upholstered in cream Ultra Leather. There has been added LED lights over the salon table.


Galley

The Valiant classic U-shaped galley to port is considered one of the best galleys on any boat. The galley wraps around with the sink at the bulkhead with storage below and a big cabinet above. There is deep storage outboard of the sinks. The ample counters are upgraded to Corian. On the port side, the stove upgraded to a Force 10 stove with oven, and built in dish storage and storage behind it. The refrigerator and freezer (very large) are forward. With

a custom big beautiful cabinet above for more storage. The counter space continues with the trash bin and drawers below. And, most importantly, the amazing Valiant pantry with its slide out shelves is just behind the nav station completing the galley. The pantry is definitely one thing on your boat to be coveted by all. The galley will make any chef very, very happy.

Mechanical

When it comes to systems installation, the build quality of Valiant Yachts is evident. Everything on this boat is well thought out with consideration of future maintenance. The engine room houses the Westerbeke 65 HP with a V drive to accommodate the sleek underbody. The transmission has a brake that prevents the shaft from turning. The Valiant factory does an outstanding job of organizing and labeling every component, every thru hull, ever wire, and every hose. So everything is done right and most everything is labeled. This is a vessel that is easy to maintain anywhere in the world, and Valiant Yachts will still ship parts anywhere in the world if you need them! In fact, other people will stick close to you!

Construction

The hull is hand laid of solid fiberglass in a female mold. The gelcoat is sprayed first into the mold and then the layup of the fiberglass completed. The layup schedule of fiberglass mat and woven roving is robust. The Valiant hull is the strongest hull imaginable as you will agree when you hold a cross section in your hands. However, the owner who commissioned this Valiant added an extra pass of the 1.5 oz mat and 24oz woven roving from keel sump to the radius to the sheer. Only Isophthalic resin is used on the premises. It is catalyzed in one-gallon increments and dyed red to ensure the proper wet out of the fiberglass. Valiant’s massive rub rail is structurally part of the hull. The hull is reinforced the entire length of the rub rail substrate of structural high-density foam which is molded with an indentation to accept the sacrificial teak rub rail with a stainless steel strake. It is a serious structural element, not screwed on after the fact.

The construction of the Valiant is bullet proof and this one is even more so with the additional layer of 1.5 oz matt and 24 oz woven roving from the keel sump to the sheer. Even her owner admits this might be overkill, but when you go to the high latitudes, you might appreciate the strongest hull you can have.

Deck & Cockpit

The deck is constructed in the same manner as the hull in a female mold. Normally, solid fiberglass or fiberglass over structural foam is used in any high stress areas so that every area where deck fittings or hardware are bedded, the area is solid fiberglass. The rest of the deck is cored with end-grain balsa which has properties that allow it to soak up the resins and adhere to the laminate fiberglass to form a solid deck. The deck hatch placement was also carefully considered and installed using Valiant’s hatch boss system with upgrades to ensure that green water on the deck will never slide under the hatch into the galley!

Every component mounted on the deck is mounted on solid fiberglass to eliminate moisture intrusion and backing plates to ensure strength. When Valiant installs it, there is no opportunity for moisture intrusion in the deck and that is why this owner had Valiant do everything at the factory. Additionally in every area this construction was upgraded from closed cell foam to solid glass. All with the intent to make the boat bulletproof, forever! All of the deck hardware is the best quality, from the Hood stainless steel ports and hatches to Lewmar winches. Valiant stainless steel work is fabulous and they fabricate everything at the factory using only the highest quality steel. The toe rail is aluminum giving you the ability to attach blocks as you need to. The toe rail is bedded with 5200 and through bolted to the hull deck flange. Stainless steel stanchions are bulwark mounted, the way you want them, and support 31” high double life lines.
