The Valiant 42 is a 1992 evolution of Bob Perry’s groundbreaking Valiant 40 design by Valiant Yachts. The boat was sold as a low volume semi-custom long distance cruiser.
The original Valiant 40 hull remained unchanged while the deck mold was updated to offer more options to the interior layout. The original Valiant 40 layout with an offset companionway was complemented by a center entry options. Berths arrangements were updated into two flavors – a large queen berth in the forward peak or a pullman style double-berth offset to port.
After gathering feedback from the Valiant 40 owner community and two decades of sailing experience, the rig was updated sporting a two foot bowsprit to bring the center of pressure further forward. There were also some small tweaks to the keel.
The Valiant 42 ceased production in 2011 when Valiant Yachts closed its doors due to an economic downturn. For a full breakdown and history check out the Valiant 40 article.
Shoal draft: 5.5'.
Deck salon version, VALIANT 42RS, was also available at this time.
