Every once in a while, we offer one of the older Valiant 40s from the blister years. The good news is these blister year Valiant are often an incredible value. This is one of those special offerings! And she is quite a boat!

This is a great opportunity to own a Valiant 40 at an affordable price. This listing broker knows Valiant! He personally owned the Valiant 40 #282 for 10 years, and then together we had a new Valiant 42 built for ourselves in 2009. We are proud to have been the Valiant Dealer of the Mid Atlantic and SE USA also. But mostly importantly we’ve owned two Valiant and we’ve sold 66 of them. We’ve sold more than half of ALL Valiant sold worldwide. We’ve sailed them offshore and delivered them countless of ocean miles. Needless to say we know a nice Valiant when we see one! We are so pleased to represent the owner of this 1979 Valiant 40 named Sabbatical.

This Valiant 40 is well loved and maintained. She is part of a lovely family that was readied for the big retirement cruise to Mexico in 2009-10. She is berthed in Southern California. You can buy her and be ready for your cruise to Mexico…. or to the South Pacific.

Here are a few of the highlights of getting Sabbatical ready for the Sabbatical!

        All new rigging in 2008 – mast pulled and painted all new standing rigging, complete with new blocks, line stoppers, and new traveler!

        Totally re-rigged for single hand sailing with all controls in the cockpit and everything honed to perfection from the Tides Marine mainsail mast track, to the jiffy reefing system, and lazy jacks system and the fabulous Electric multi-purpose winch!

        All new Quantum sails in 2008 with all control lines led to the cockpit! Complete storm sails and trys’l track. Plus Asymmetrical spinnaker and ATN sock.

        All the safety gear we hope you’ll never need from the two manual bilge pumps, emergency tiller, Life sling, PFDs, Life raft which is now well out of certification!

        Great ground tackle from the 66lb Bruce anchor with 300’ chain to the monster electric windlass rebuilt in 2012 plus more!

        Structural and cosmetic upgrades from the topsides faired and painted, to the bottom barrier coat renewal, to the rebuilt rudder, and to all the new thru hulls, to the new deck paint and stainless steel lifelines.

        Mechanicals maintained properly from the Westerbeke 40 hp with fewer than 4K hours and a top end rebuild in 2010, Max prop service in 2018 along with a new Cutlass Bearing, and complete heat exchanger clean out and service in 2019. She runs like a top!

        All the interior comforts with new cushions and mattresses with extra Cherry cabinetry and a special dining table that stows on the bulkhead out of the way. And she was a really special Valiant 40 from the factory with beautiful teak interior extra cabinetry and many useful features.

        Communications upgrades including ICOM 802 SSB, with turner, Pactor II USB modem and firmware for Pactor III, ICOM 504 VHF, and ICOM MXA 5000 AIS receiver, Standard Horizon CP 180 plotter at the helm, Furuno GPS. Plus the trusty Alpha autopilot and rigging for a Monitor wind vane steering system.

Sabbatical is a great Valiant 40 that is ready for a new owner to take over. While she is an older boat, we certainly love the Valiant 40 because they are virtually indestructible.

What can we say about Valiant 40 that has not already been said? We like to call the Valiant the all-ocean SUV. It’s the rich man's floating pickup truck. You can just get on to this boat and go anywhere right now. Sabbatical is just what we love to see, an affordable ocean going sailboat that does not cost a fortune. She’s a good deal.

If you are staring at this listing and dreaming and scheming as to how to get it together to buy her, you really need to make the call NOW!

Someone else will call us now, and….. you guessed it…… "you missed the opportunity once again".

This listing broker has had two Valiants built for his personal sailing needs, one of the last Valiant 40s (1991) and now a Valiant 42, built in 2008. This Valiant 40 Sabbatical is just as capable to voyage on as mine are, for less (a lot less) money. Stop dreaming and just do it.

Just call now! We are here to help!
