Many of you have read our write-ups of our Valiant offerings, and know our passion and our extensive knowledge of these famous, ocean proven yachts from the drawing board of our dear friend, the well-known yacht architect, Bob Perry. Each yacht is beautiful and world sailing capable, but never have we seen a one-owner, lightly used Valiant 40’ so lovingly cared for by a well-known, retired yacht surveyor, as you will see when you inspect this fabulous offering of the Valiant 40, “PROMISE”
FINALLY, a LATE MODEL TEXAS BUILT VALIANT 40’ has come on the market for all of the cruisers who realize the GREAT VALUE of a lightly used VALIANT 40 and the economics of the market today! WHY BUY A NEW BOAT, when a yacht such as “PROMISE” is available TODAY? “PROMISE BOASTS A CLASSIC VALIANT PEDIGREE.
Lightly cruised from the Chesapeake to New England and one trip to the Bahamas and offered by HER ORIGINAL OWNER. “PROMISE” is homeported on the Chesapeake Bay at the owners’ private dock in front of his home AND OF COURSE, “PROMISE” IS A NEW GENERATION VALIANT 40’ AND WAS BUILT WITH A FACTORY BLISTER RESISTANT EPOXY BARRIER COAT.
“PROMISE” is in classic yachting fashion, loved, and so very well taken care of and she is equipped for extensive cruising and a gracious and elegant life for the liveaboard sailor.
The VALIANT 40 is the boat that “wrote the book” on shorthanded, transoceanic passagemaking. VALIANT Yachts are the standard for performance offshore cruising, by which all others are judged. “PROMISE’S” sistership, Mark Schrader's VALIANT 40 "Resourceful" was the FIRST AMERICAN BOAT to singlehandely circumnavigate via the five Southern Capes. There have been more major shorthanded and singlehanded transoceanic passages, including circumnavigations, aboard VALIANT Yachts, than any other line of yachts ever built!!! The listing agent will be happy to discuss these statistics, which he knows well, as well as all other aspects of “PROMISE”.
“PROMISE” is now on the brokerage market, by her ONLY OWNER and she is a perfect example of a classic Perry offshore yacht. Her classic Valiant lines incorporate a tumble home stern, bulwarks, dorades, opening ports, oversize rigging and quality construction and has all of the attributes seen as important, in a long-distance voyaging sailboat.
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.
TIME TO QUIT DREAMING…YOU CAN GO SAILING TO ALL THOSE TROPICAL ISLANDS, STARTING TODAY!!! THERE ARE GREAT ADVENTURES AWAITING YOU, ONBOARD YOUR NEW YACHT, the Valiant 40’ named “PROMISE”.
