You must see this Valiant 42!
...... now available at the price of a Valiant 40!
Our special offering, Pegasus VII, is a 1994 Valiant 42 among the first of the V42s built. She is a great boat with simple 12 volt systems with solar panels and wind generator. She is well cared for, capable and proven. She has served two owners very well. Pegasus achieved fame winning first in class in the 1996 Caribbean 1500 rally with just a couple aboard! Pegasus has since proved herself as her current (and second) owners did the Atlantic loop, including a circumnavigation of Ireland! Pegasus flew from the Azores to Ireland (1200nm) in just 8 days – again with just a couple aboard.
Valiant is a sailing machine, but I will say from careful inspection of Pegasus, that her owners have used a few serious racing strategies to fly! Pegasus is a Valiant with wings! She is light on her feet, unencumbered with weighty stuff. She's an incredible 12volt boat with no generator to weigh her down. And her gear has been stowed meticulously to balance weight fore and aft, ensuring that, even while cruising far afield, fully equipped for a full year, she optimized her design for simplicity and speed. This is what I love about Pegasus. She is all sailboat, all natural, very beautiful and so appealing!
Her current owners were intent on a big bluewater adventure, and equipped Pegasus to make that happen. The addition of a Monitor Windvane Self-Steering system (in addition to the electric Autohelm) created the perfect, yet simple, cockpit controlled boat. Now, in addition to the reefing lines, roller furling for Yankee and Staysail, Main and Spinnaker halyards that all run to the cockpit, she is also steered by the wind. Her safety record is second to none. Despite the wild weather of the North Atlantic, Pegasus carried her owners safely, without a single gear failure, and not an injury aboard. This ship could go anywhere – and comfortably.
We are very pleased indeed to offer Pegasus #105 to you as she is a boat that you will be so proud to own. There are boats that really have it! It is a reflection of their owner and the care, love, and money invested to make the boat all she can be always. This is the case with Pegasus! She is too good to be true. When you see her, you will buy her, no doubt.
Here are just some of the more recent highlights!
These are just a few of the upgrades and maintenance high points and there are many custom features and additions:
The Custom stainless steel arch and folding dinghy davits designed, fabricated, and installed by New England Boatworks is perfectly executed.
The wind generator is mounted on the arch with three GPS antennas and a redundant stern light.
AMENTITIES: New JVC stereo with Bluetooth, Pandora, USB, CD, 2014
ENHANCED SAFETY: ACR 406 EPIRB, AIS system, Liferaft, redundant nav lights, spare main halyard and extra headsail halyard
Once in a blue moon, a really nice sweet boat comes along. Pegasus is one of those very special boats. She has been well loved and cared for. Few boats half her age come anything close to her! Please give Pegasus your very serious consideration. You will have no regrets.

Pegasus is a lovely Valiant 42, well kept, in immaculate order. For a boat of this mid nineties vintage, you will be astounded by her condition. She has many very special features that make her really special.
How about a walk through:
Starting foreward the master stateroom is a beautiful traditional V berth with a filler insert to make the queen berth. The berth is spacious with the hull sides lined with ash battens and with a single wide shelf on port and starboard and of course the chain locker forward. The foam cushions are original uphostery in very nice condition and they are so easy to lift to access the great under berth storage. The stateroom has a cedar lined hanging locker to starboard and cabinets to port. The overall feeling is very spacious and light.
The salon just aft of the bulkhead is also spacious with an L-shaped dinette to port (which slides out to make a double berth), and a straight settee to starboard. The centerline drop leaf table creates a dinette for five comfortably, and two sweetly. There is storage outboard with cabinets and shelves. Overhead hatches and large stainless steel opening ports with screens make the salon light and well ventilated.
The galley next aft to port is large and U-shaped, and completely workable with plenty of storage and useable spaces including the galley pantry, which is one of the most recognized Valiant features for good reason. The extra large stainless steel sink is the perfect combination wash basin and thermos holder while at sea.
The navigation station to starboard is large enough for your chart, with the chart table storage and all of the ships instruments nicely organized. It is a real sit down space where you can relax, plan, play with the computer, talk on the SSB, and organize.
The head is just aft to starboard. It is a large head with loads of storage, and more great ventilation. The vanity is outboard with a stainless steel sink set at a nice angle. The faucet extends for the shower. The counter top is long with a clothes hamper at the aft end where the toilet is installed with a wet locker behind it to take advantage of the engine heat to dry everything.
The aft cabin is used as a sea berth on a passage and as a guest cabin. Pegasus was the first Valiant 42 to have the opening to make it easier to use the cabin. They called it the pizza door! It is great and every Valiant after that had this nice feature. The panel folds down to make the cabin private when you have guests. But when at sea, it makes the cabin extremely airy, and ensures easy communication with the watchkeeper in the cockpit. There is a dressing seat with storage under, and a cedar lined hanging locker outboard. The spaciousness is enhanced with a beautiful custom handcrafted teak-framed mirror installed on the bulkhead.
Up the companionway, is the deep comfy cockpit with cockpit table and wide combings for perching to sail by the tell tales. The engine is under the companionway stairs with very good access. Cockpit amenities include access to all reefing lines, sheets, main and spinnaker halyards, control of the self steering, , dinghy davits, cockpit speakers, and beautiful dodger and bimini. It is all very civilized.
Pegasus is just one of those very special boats that has been well loved and cared for properly. The ambiance is warm and cheerful. She's has a beautiful oiled teak interior, very rare these days, with Alpenglow cabin lights, a gimbaled brass lamp, teak and holly cabin sole refinished beautifully, large opening hatches, stainless steel Hood ports with screens, dorade, three Hella fans, and a microwave!
Galley & Plumbing Beautiful big U-shaped galley works at anchor and in a sea way. It's the proven Bob Perry galley with great 12v refrigeration, Power Survivor Watermaker, and Seagull filtered water, plus the Valiant pantry with roll out shelves and a bonus space above that holds everything. Large spice rack. Custom rack in the pantry. Manual fresh and salt water. It all works perfectly!
Electronics & Navigation The Nav-station is one of the great things about a Valiant. The large sit down navigation station is another room in the house. This is your office where the breaker panel, read outs, and controls are located. The Nav-station on Pegasus is very nice with clean installations of all the instruments and controls. Everything is nicely labeled. Pegasus has a Raymarine C series chart plotter/GPS which also displays radar. You have instruments below at the navigation station and also at the helm. She's ready to go cruising with SSB radio at the Nav-station where you'll hang out with the cruiser nets.
◦ Raymarine radar re-wired to reach both cockpit and nav station chartplotter
◦ Matrix Standard Horizon 2100 re-wired to show AIS on both cockpit and nav station chartplotter
Systems: Mechanical & Electrical Systems Pegasus has a new 55hp Westerbeke engine installed 2005, replacing her Westerbeke 42. The new engine has only 1650 hours on it! The installation included new engine mounts, serviced Max Prop with new blades and new dripless shaft seal. It is all very good.
Electrically she is a beautiful 12 volt boat with solar and wind charging capabilities. She has four house AGM batteries giving her 400 amp hours; and she has a battery monitoring and voltage regulating system. She is uncomplicated and easy to maintain. Without the generator installed, that perfect space is where the fuel tank is located. This keeps the weight low and centerline, which is as she was designed. The cockpit lockers are huge and deep and wide as no space is lost to tankage. If you like the idea of a 12 volt boat, you will love the idea after you think about all the benefits.
12 Volt System is Excellent:
110 volt shore power system:
◦ new bearings & complete refit, KISS Wind Generator, 2014
Rig and Sails Inventory The design of the Valiant 42 is the modernization of the Valiant 40 designed by Robert H. Perry which earned its reputation winning single handed ocean races in the 80s. Pegasus carried on the tradition with just the owners aboard in 1996 placing First in Class in the Caribbean 1500 Rally, a notable accomplishment. The boat is rigged to be sailed easily by a couple with all the control lines led aft to the cockpit. The sails are built by Thurston Quantum Sails. The sails are beautiful in new condition.
◦ Mast and boom sandblasted and repainted with AwlGrip (white); all fittings removed and re-bedded; all horn cleats replaced, 2012
There is a reason that serious sailors choose a Valiant. The build quality is among the best there is. From the hand-laid solid glass hull, to the hull deck joint bonding to the cored decks with solid glass reinforced areas where deck hardware is attached. Everything on a Valiant is seriously overbuilt. There is nothing flimsy about her. The solid nature of the boat is evident from the moment you step aboard. The workmanship is incredible as the boat is built in the USA in Texas by a group of highly skilled craftsmen who take personal pride in the quality of the work done. Valiant is proud to have sent so many couples to sea in a boat that is built for the sea.
DECK, COCKPIT & GROUND TACKLE
The Valiant 42 was among the very first cruising sailboats built with little to NO Exterior wood! It is brilliant. She is all fiberglass and stainless steel. The overall result is a boat that is very easy to maintain, and the effect is stunning. The Valiant Factory has employed the same group of highly skilled craftsmen for many years. They fabricate all of the stainless steel from the SS bow sprit to the solid stern rails. The hand rails are stainless steel and the toe rail is aluminum so you can attach blocks where you need them. The chocks and cleats are oversized. The cockpit is deep and secure with everything within easy reach. The combings are nice and flat offering a good perch. Pegasus has a custom stainless steel arch with folding dinghy davits integrated and the wind generator mounted in the center. She also has a beautifully built canvas dodger and bimini. The chart plotter and radar are at the helm (with a second chart plotter dock at the Nav-station). The sailing instruments are mounted on the bulkhead. Pegasus is very clean and orderly. She shows beautifully. And the topsides of the hull were Awlgripped not too long ago so she looks shiny and new!
◦ New SS swim ladder mounts on toe-rail either side, 2015
Additional and Safety Specifications & Items Pegasus has all the safety gear you need to leave now for the islands! Her owner has sailed far and has serious safety items and redundant safety features. It could take you years to get your boat in this condition!
