The Valiant 42 center entry companionway with a queen V-berth stateroom forward is the classic most popular Valiant 42 layout. This is a perfect two-stateroom vessel with a single head and stall shower located aft at the companionway as well as the settee berths in the salon. The V42 gives you a truly magnificent galley, spacious salon, large navigation station, and a dedicated engine room.
The build quality is robust, crafted with the rigors of the ocean foremost in mind and at the same time she is truly lovely below with a varnished cherry interior. You will see the heavily built quality everywhere from the locking floor boats to the cabinetry. The cabin interior is light and bright due to the Formica panels trimmed in cherry on the house sides and ceiling. This vessel is light and airy with twelve opening ports and a three large hatches with two smaller hatches and cabin fans and dorades. The salon has a lovely warm Cherry woodwork and cabinets in absolutely pristine perfect condition and a beautiful Teak and Basswood cabin sole finished in satin Varathane. Ash battens line the hull sides and add a soft glow that enhances the ambiance. The cabin house sides and ceiling are a soft cream Formica with Cherry trim. The Hood stainless steel ports are all opening ports and all have screens that are in perfect condition. The Lewmar hatches provide excellent ventilation. With a fan in each cabin the ventilation is superior.
While everything is strong, you'll also see it all very well executed. The drawers are solid Cherry faced with Cedar bottoms and 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 quality is evident everywhere you look.
Starting forward, the Queen V stateroom has a super wide queen sized berth. There is good reason this is the most popular layout. The hull sides are finished with Ash battens and there are three roomy cabinets on each side. A reading light and a book shelf port and starboard give perfect individual space for each occupant of this spacious double berth. Two large drawers under the berth roll easily and are lined with aromatic cedar. In the cabin, there is a large locker to port with a seat bench and a smaller hanging locker and a bench seat to starboard. The bi-fold Cherry door provides privacy with dressing space in the cabin.
Just aft of the main structural bulkhead, the main salon is extremely spacious with a traditional centerline drop-leaf table and an L-shaped settee sea berth to port. There is storage behind the settee and the port water tank below. The outboard cabinetry includes a large cabinet at the aft end of the settee with double shelves the full length. To starboard there is a straight 7’ settee berth with cabinetry and shelves outboard with double book shelf and additional storage behind the settee back. The water tanks under the settees are designed to come right out the companionway if you ever need to replace them, which you won’t because they are high and dry under the settees. The traditional drop leaf table folds out to seat six easily for dinner.
It will not be hard to cook dinner either! Just aft on the port side is the Valiant classic U shaped galley, considered one of the best galleys on any boat. The galley will make any chef very, very happy. The propane stove is outboard with dish storage and cupboards outboard and additional storage below. Forward is the freezer outboard and the refrigerator with additional counter space, a flatware drawer, and roll out trash bin. At the aft facing side are three drawers, double stainless sink with storage under, and deep dry storage outboard. There is a large cabinet above the sink and a bulkhead mounted spice rack. The famous Valiant pantry is adjacent just aft of the nav station.
The aft cabin on the port quarter meets all your requirements to have guests aboard anywhere on your travels. More importantly when cruising shorthanded, this is your sea berth when you are sailing on a passage. Located beside the companionway on the port quarter, the off watch crew member can be peacefully sleeping just three feet from the cockpit. We use our aft cabin as our sea berth like so many Valiant cruising couples do. There is also a dressing seat, hanging locker and two large drawers. Good ventilation is provided by two opening ports and an overhead hatch and a fan. Under the berth the batteries.
With the V42 Center Entry layout, Valiant definitely got the head right! The head is located just down the companionway on the starboard side where it is easy to use in a seaway. The stall shower makes a perfect wet locker on a passage with a hanging locker outboard of the shower. At anchor the stall shower is so wonderful you'll use it even in a marina because it is so well ventilated with a hatch overhead and a port and it is so easy to keep clean being of fiberglass with a seat, a teak grate, and sump pump. The oval stainless steel sink is on a large counter space with a great deal of storage under it and in the Cherry cabinets’ outboard. There is even a clothes hamper, something seldom seen on any boat! The bi-fold door works well for privacy and locks in place when not in use.
The Dedicated Engine Room is one of the most important features of a Valiant; one of the best engine rooms on any sailing vessel. It is accessed through the head behind the toilet. The companionway stairs can also be removed to get at every corner of the engine. Even better, the mechanicals space is separate from the living areas of the boat. Valiant was designed to be easily maintained by the owner anywhere in the world. Engine Room has just been entirely painted.

Rig and Sails Inventory
The design of the Valiant 42 is the modernization of the Valiant 40 designed by Robert H. Perry. The Valiant 40 earned its reputation for safety and performance when, in the 80s, Francis Stokes placed second in the BOC around the world race under all the great capes. Mark Schrader aboard the Valiant 40 "Resourceful" became the first American to complete the nonstop round the world voyage single handed below all five southern capes! By the mid eighties the Valiant had proved to be a capable offshore voyager that could be sailed solo around the world. She was an ocean race boat!
The Valiant 42 sails even better than the Valiant 40 with added mast height and added sail area and ballast. She's a sail animal, but…even more important to all of us couples, is comfort, safety, and complete lack of drama. More couples choose to sail a Valiant than any other cruising boat for very good reasons. The true cutter rig, easily managed divided sail plan, powerful well placed winches, and safe cockpit with secure hard dodger are all elements all make it possible for a couple to cruise safely and feel secure sailing with just two people aboard. The boat is easily driven and sails delightfully in light winds; in heavy air, reef her down with a double reef in the main and the staysail and she'll track like a freight train with the autopilot guiding her effortlessly. She sails fast so you get there! She is Weatherly and carries sail so you are not constantly reefing. She is robust and strong so you feel secure in the ocean.
Hull, Deck, Cockpit & Ground Tackle
The Valiant is a classic Bob Perry design with a high bow with a little flare and a long sleek shear ending with the classic rounded stern that is so buoyant and so safe in a seaway. The underbody is refined with a long modified fin type cruising keel and full skeg mounted rudder that gives the boat wonderful tracking ability and makes her easily steered by the wind vane or the autopilot. You will always feel safe with finger tip control. Valiant Yachts are hand laid solid glass hulls made in a female mold with a robust layup schedule described below in the construction section. The massive rub rail is a Valiant signature element and so useful and reassuring.
The deck layout and construction is one of the most important aspects of any sailboat. Valiant builds a robust, low maintenance vessel, and all the toughness shows. All of the deck hardware is the best quality, from the Hood stainless steel ports (nine), to Lewmar Ocean hatches (seven), to Lewmar winches and custom Valiant stainless steel work. 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 inches high with stainless steel coated double life lines.
The Valiant Yachts company has fully used its wonderful stainless steel fabrication capabilities to create the amazing Valiant bow sprit completely of stainless steel beautiful sculpted and welded. It is a piece of art. In addition to the bow sprit, Valiant also manufactures all the dorade guards and the hand rails. The beautiful stern rail of one inch stainless steel tubing is solid to the boarding gate! Columbine has the signature Valiant hard dodger which is as useful as it is substantial! The rigid hard dodger is solid and gives great security in the cockpit with its hand rails on both sides and the cockpit side of solid stainless steel. It even has a standard lights, red and white, under the dodger. You feel very safe in a Valiant cockpit.
The Valiant cockpit is also comfortable with the pedestal mounted wheel steering and wide comfortable seating and cockpit combings. The cockpit is long enough to lie down. The combings are high and comfortable with a flat top so you can perch on them. The cockpit lockers port and starboard and aft lazarettes have deep gutters for drainage. Cockpit drains (four) are large to drain quickly. There is excellent access to the steering quadrant through the aft lazarette port and starboard.
Dingy & Outboard: 2008
Valiant Yachts builds each Valiant by hand the way high quality boats are built.
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. 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 with structural high density foam and it is molded with an indentation to accept the sacrificial teak rub rail with a stainless steel strake.
The deck is constructed in the same manner as the hull in a female mold. Structural foam is used in any high stress areas and end-grain balsa core is used elsewhere as its properties allow it to soak up the resins and adhere to the laminate fiberglass. The deck is solid glass in all the areas where deck hardware will be mounted. Valiant’s semi-custom construction process allows you to select your hatch placement and the hatches are wonderfully constructed and installed using a hatch boss system. The hatches are perfect and where you want them.
After the hull is complete, the next stage is the construction and installation of the floor timbers, the latitudinal stringers. These stringers are constructed of structural foam laminated with fiberglass and glassed into place inside the hull. All the bulkheads are built into the boat using high quality marine plywood tabbed and fiber glassed into the hull sides and floor members. All the furniture is built into the boat and all the horizontal and vertical elements are fiber glassed to the hull sides creating a monolithic structure. This type of construction makes the boat very, very strong.
Hull Deck Joint
When the finished deck is lowered onto the hull all the furniture and bulkheads are then fiber glassed to the ceiling (deck). The Valiant hull to deck joint is through bolted glued with 3M5200. Then when the aluminum toe rail is installed, it is glued with 3M 5200 to the flange and then through bolted through the flange on four and half inch centers! This is serious construction and it is never coming apart.
Valiant Commitment to Building a Strong Boat
Every construction element is designed and executed with the established mission of building the strongest boat possible, a boat that can take what the ocean can dish out. The chain plates are stainless steel are through bolted with backing plates on the solid fiberglass structural knees. And you should know the quality of the stainless steel is as good as can be found! No compromise.
Valiant attention to detail is apparent in the installation of every component from plumbing to wiring to all mechanical and electrical equipment. Every sea cock is labeled as is every valve. Wire runs are orderly and finished with wire bundles properly tied. The construction is finished with attention and care. Nothing is left incomplete. The cabinets are finished inside so everything looks complete and proper. The hull is insulated above the waterline with closed cell foam to eliminate moisture from condensation and also to provide sound insulation. The engine room is well insulated with one inch Sound Stop lined foam.
Keel, Skeg, and Rudder Construction
The Keel is constructed of solid molded lead with ¾ inch, stainless steel J bolts. There are 17 of these massive 3/4 inch J bolts. A bolt pattern is made for each keel and used to ensure that each hole through the keel stub is drilled in the perfect position. The keel is bedded with 5200 and the 17 J bolts are secured with backing plates inside the boat. It is never coming off! The skeg is constructed of laminated fiberglass. It is through bedded in 3M 5200 and through bolted to the hull in the same way as the keel with 10 stainless steel bolts and backing plates. The rudder is constructed of a solid stainless steel rudder shaft with a steel rudder core which is then encased in structural foam laminated with fiberglass. The rudder has a cast bronze protective shoe
Hull Exterior Finish
The hull is in excellent condition. The Valiant hull top sides are finished with Imron polyurethane in gray.. Imron is used because it is easy to repair. The hull bottom is finished with epoxy barrier coat and marine anti fouling paint. Valiant has a ten year bottom warranty against osmosis. And you should also know that Valiants' blister issues were caused by flame retardants in resins used on the Valiants built at Uniflight before 1986. This old history has nothing to do with Valiants built in Texas!
The construction of the Valiant is bullet proof. Valiant craftsmen are incredibly proud of their product. The construction makes the Valiant is one of the very best blue water boats you could choose to own. This is why the Valiant remains the vessel that most couples choose for circumnavigation or long distanced passage making.
