An amazing opportunity presents itself! This is the only Valiant 50 built with the centerline queen island berth! If you have been mourning the end of production of new boats by one of the greatest boat builders ever…if you were always going to buy one…you need to act now!

You already know that the Valiant is legendary. This is the standard against which blue water boats are measured. More cruising couples and solo sailors have chosen Valiant than any other sailing vessel. The Valiant 50 was designed by Robert Perry in 1997 based on a modernization of his design of the Valiant 47 made famous by several solo circumnavigations and it has proven itself to be a particularly stiff and dry boat.  As you read all the details in the full specs, we have tried to do justice to this incredible Valiant 50. Timrod, as she is called, is one of the last Valiants built, and she is a very special Valiant!

The owners who are experienced lifelong sailors commissioned this Valiant 50 after years searching for the right sailing vessel to meet their detailed and thoroughly considered requirements for safety, sailing performance and livability. They inspected dozens of high quality vessels and researched many of the world’s best builders, literally spending years in the process while conducting inspections of boatbuilders’ factories in the USA and Europe before selecting Valiant to construct their dreamboat!

Valiant Yachts, in continuous production for 35 years, was a very agreeable and high quality builder that offered many options and opportunities for customization. The semi custom build philosophy allowed owners to get pretty much everything they wanted especially on the interior layout and cabinetry. The owners of Timrod worked closely with the factory throughout the build process so that they could design large and small details that make thisr Valiant 50 uniquely beautiful and utterly comfortable for a cruising couple. They remained involved throughout the build process and were able to specify nuanced details that resulted in the most beautiful Valiant 50 ever completed.

Timrod is the only Valiant with a beautiful island queen berth forward! This layout is modern and sought after and it worked extremely well. The owner’s forward cabin is spacious with an island style queen berth, beautiful cabinetry and drawers, and with a vanity and sink as well as strategically placed mirrors. The couple who built this Valiant did not compromise on their vision to make the boat everything they had hoped she could be. The result is an incredibly beautiful vessel with a refined interior with beautiful wraparound settees with cherry armrests and details that transform this robustly stout no nonsense all ocean SUV into a Yacht with a refined character and lovely sumptuous interior. They thought of everything from the completely new owner’s stateroom with queen island style berth to the details of refined elegance like the cherry battens covering the hull sides instead of ash and the cherry mast enclosure, and cherry screens, and beautiful ambient lighting that adds so much elegance. You really must see this lovely vessel to completely understand the difference between this Valiant 50 Timrod and her sisterships.  

But beauty was not the only consideration; the owners designed their Valiant to be capable of long distance cruising in comfort. Electrical systems were designed to be fully functional when ‘off the grid” and are able to operate from theextra large 12 volt battery bank that minimizes generator run-timethe two 100 amp alternators rapidly recharge the battery bank from either shore power or the generator which also can be used to run the air conditioning at anchor. The engine alternator is huge, 165 amps! And there is also a high output wind generator for added power. The Westerbeke diesel is a big upgrade to 82hp instead of the standard 64hp, which means this vessel is never underpowered no matter the sea state and offers fuel efficient cruising at relaxed engine speeds. And remember that first and foremost Timrod is a sailing vessel designed to sail fast and comfortably with high quality Spectra sail cloth.

While Valiant builds every boat to robust and exacting standards, each new owner can specify details and customize the boat. Many new owners do not have experience to plan ahead, but because these owners had spent years searching and planning, they really were able to consider everything!
