Having undergone a $40,000 professional paint job on the hull and bottom in the fall of 2014 she is now looking sharp for her new owners. The owner has also upgraded a number of the systems aboard in the last couple of years as you will see when you take a close look at equipment lists below. Originally launched in 1998, this Valiant 50 has the distinction of being the only 3 sleeping cabin layout that Valiant has built to date, offering truly unique accommodations which is sure to be appreciated by all who sail on her. The 3rd cabin layout not only offers an additional aft berth, but also provides more easily accessible storage than other layouts. With her navy blue hull, she has turned heads wherever she has sailed.

Accomodations & Layout:
The forward cabin features a large V berth with a seat and 2 hanging lockers, in addition to multiple lockers on each side and drawers. The port side has a head with a large separate shower stall. The main saloon has a fixed table in the center with leaves that raise to form a substantial table for dining with a large group. The port settee pulls out to form a double berth. The navigation station is aft of the starboard settee with a second head aft of the navigation station. The U-shaped galley is aft of the port settee, and features a 4 burner stove with oven, microwave, top loading fridge and freezer, and ample storage all within reach of the cook. The port side aft has a cabin with a single berth and many lockers. It can be used as a storage room or sleeping cabin. The starboard quarter area has a large double berth that is particularly comfortable offshore. The interior is varnished cherry throughout. Another unique feature is that the mast is not visible because it is paneled between the forward head and the port settee.
