Valiant 40' 1979

General Description
The Valiant 40 is a modern classic. Performance has become synonymous with Valiant and in no small way responsible for its success. We proudly boast the fact that a readership poll by SAIL Magazine selected the Valiant 40 as the "Offshore Cruiser of the Decade".

With proven performance spanning 3 decades, Valiant Yachts continues to be the choice of serious sailors who sail the oceans of the world. Valiant owners are unanimous in their conviction that their Valiant's are exceptional blue-water passage makers.

The Valiant 40 has perhaps influenced modern blue-water cruiser design more than any other boat. Prior to the Valiant 40, cruising sailboats were synonymous with heavy and slow. The genius that designer Bob Perry brought in the Valiant 40 was to put what was then a modern IOR racing shape under the waterline and match it with a cruising hull above. He built this concept into a boat with the look of a Scandinavian double-ender and in doing so help further the American love for traditional double-ender that exists to this day.

Winning multiple single-handed ocean races, it quickly gained a reputation of being a fast and serious ocean-going passage-maker. This vessel is a regular circum navigator, some claiming perhaps no other cruising boat has logged as many open ocean miles, and in 1997 the Valiant 40 was inducted into the American Sailboat Hall of Fame.
