Sold NEW to her ORIGINAL OWNER by the Listing Agent when he was V.P of Valiant Yachts in Seattle, and again to her SECOND AND THIRD owners, “MISS ELLIE” is now offered on the brokerage market by her 3rd loving owner.  “MISS ELLIE” was taken to Canada shortly after her purchase, put into an indoor controlled environment yacht facility and for several years, enjoyed thoughtful and careful restoration and updating.  Her substantial upgrades for ocean passages and live-aboard cruising, with interior custom features that the listing broker, who has also owned his own Valiant for FORTY YEARS, has never seen before, makes this outstanding yacht, #1 on the short list of “must see yachts” for any serious sailor, contemplating the purchase of a world class cruising yacht.  

“MISS ELLIE” is now again on the brokerage market, by only her 3nd owner in 37 years, a rare phenomenon amongst classic sailboats. No expense has been spared during her refurbishing, with custom joiner work and extensive upgrades above and below deck, loaded with top of the line equipment…the SHOW BOAT of all Valiant Yachts ever to be available on the brokerage market.

There are MANY wonderful and adventurous stories about this renown yacht, to share with her new owners.

“MISS ELLIE'S” sistership, Mark Schrader's VALIANT 40, "Resourceful" was the FIRST AMERICAN BOAT to circumnavigate via the five southern capes. She is capable of sailing through the harshest conditions, in the wildest or calmest oceans of the world!!!

“MISS ELLIE” is a perfect example of a classic Perry offshore yacht, has proven offshore capabilities and was designed for blue water sailing. Naval Architect Bob Perry, has incorporated into this sturdy double ender, both seaworthiness and ample interior space that offers steady and comfortable cruising, and features the traditional or “CLASSIC” Valiant 40 layout, with lines that incorporate a tumble home stern, bulwarks, dorades, opening ports, oversize rigging and quality construction .  The Valiant 40 is a modern classic. Performance has become synonymous with Valiant and is in no small way responsible for its success. SAIL Magazine selected the Valiant 40 as the ”Offshore Cruiser of the “Decade”, and Valiant’s induction into the Sailing Hall of Fame.

This is the layout, known WORLDWIDE as the look which made the Valiant 40 famous with sailors throughout the world and which has taken more sailors on circumnavigations, than any other production yacht.

THIS IS A RARE, HIGHLY CUSTOMIZED & REBUILT VALIANT 40!!!!!

 LOOK OVER THIS LISTING AND THEN START PLANNING YOUR CRUISE!!!

Sail Magazine wrote:  “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 close-winded, versatile rig. 

Her hull features a modern split appendage, fin-keel and skeg-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 buoyance 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.  Valiant 40: THE ULTIMATE BLUEWATER PERFORMANCE CRUISER.”

She is a beautiful cutter capable of going anywhere in the world. She is fast, responsive and capable of living aboard in great comfort and eagerly awaiting a new owner to put her through her paces in the open  ocean….where she belongs!

We are pleased once again, to be involved with this VALIANT 40 - No one knows the history of this VALIANT 40 and Valiant Yachts, better!

IN THE OWNERS WORDS:

We purchased Miss Ellie in 2001 and trucked her from Titusville Florida to Sarnia Ontario. Then we worked on restoring her for the next 12 years. All the time sailing her in the clean fresh water of the Great Lakes. Cruising in Lake Huron, the North Channel and Georgian Bay.  A short, northern sailing season, with every winter stored on the hard with the mast down. Inside storage on the extensive refit winters.

No expense was spared to improve and upgrade all systems on Miss Ellie. She is now better than new.  The deck and cockpit

were peeled, reglassed, faired and painted with Imron. Every through deck opening was over bored and filled with solid epoxy to prevent any intrusion of water into the cored deck. Below the water line she was also extensively peeled and re-glassed, faired, and painted with Interprotect 2000, then 3 coats of blue and 3 coats of black bottom paint.  Last bottom paint was in fall 2015. Total electrical rewire using Blue Seas systems and a new Beta engine in 2013 with only 650 hour on it.  She has been lightly used for the last 3 years in Florida and the Bahamas during our 6 month cruising winter season. Then carefully decommissioned and stored on the hard until next season.

$65,000 of all new electronics installed in June 2015. The list of upgrades are extensive. She is a fantastic sailing ship that can take you to any port in the world you desire with ease and comfort. She is the original side entry design. Some,  like myself, say the best interior, all carefully sanded and varnished to a meticulous high gloss. Easy maintenance and a stunning vision.

You must see her to believe her.

MORE FROM THE LISTING BROKER:

Having been actively involved in the brokerage and new boat and brokerage yacht industry since the 1975, we have been fortunate to have been able to broker some very amazing and special yachts.  Our specialty has always been quality bluewater passage makers, so we are very pleased and proud to have been appointed by an experienced and life long yachtsman, to offer his highly customized and rebuilt VALIANT 40’.

The Valiant 40 was designed by one of the more innovative and forward thinking yacht designers of the past century. Today, as a personal friend, we often refer to him as “the father of the cruising yacht”. The yachts he designed and built have earned him a solid reputation among the best designers of the modern cruising sailing yacht.

Not only are they heavily built and comfortable, given the efficient modern hull form, safe fast passages.   

Upon acquiring “MISS ELLIE”, the owners undertook a thorough and complete 12 year refit of not only the interior and exterior refinishing, all systems including the engine, electronics, spars and rigging were incorporated to enable a retired, short handed crew to make safe, round trip passages to and from The Bahamas.

If you are in the market for a world reknown, safe and comfortable long range passagemaker, you will find it well worth your while to give “MISS ELLIE” a very thorough consideration and do plan on closely examining the many photos of this INCREDIBLE YACHT

 “MISS ELLIE” HAS BEEN A PET FREE AND SMOKE FREE YACHT
