We are proud to represent this well equipped third owner Valiant 40,
hand built in the “Lone Star State” from the renowned Designer Robert Perry, penned his first “Performance Cruiser".
Production of the Valiant 40 began in 1975 at Uniflite Yachts in Washington state when Bob Perry designed the Valiant 40, it was then thought to be pretty radical in design for it's time.
Since the early 90's Bob Perry’s long fin “Cruising keel" and skeg hung rudder with a "No Frills & all Function" reputation of which the build is still well know to this day as it was back when production began; Perry's V40 has become the definition of a stable & fast Blue water Cruiser.
Uniflite Yachts originally built 159 Valiant 40s until 1984 when Rich Worstell, a Valiant owner and dealer from N. Texas, bought the molds. After producing some V40s in Washington, he eventually moved the operation to Texas. The first “Texas” Valiant 40 was hull number 267. This particular hull being# 271 & one of the later models built. Production of the Valiant 40 continued, on a limited semi-custom basis until 1992.
The owners have sailed on this & their boats sister ship across the Gulf of Mexico in varying degrees of weather conditions & attest that the V40 handles heavy seas & wind conditions equally as it's comfortable sailing in light winds.
These boat details are subject to contract.
