|1978 Valiant 40 in well above average condition, and a tribute to her current and previous owners, is now for sale.
Recent upgrades have been made in all the right areas as she was planning to be extensively cruised but those plans have now changed.
All the sails are in excellent condition as is the well maintained Kubota engine. This is a turn key and go cruising boat.
Classic lines externally and a warm timber interior that is not found in modern cruising boats. If you don't mind turning a few heads, this is possibly the one to inspect and purchase because they don't build them like this anymore.
