That's a very loaded question. Valiant 50 is a real good boat. It is an extended Valiant 47 which once won old version of around alone. Howver there are lots of really good 'smaller' boats in the 45-52 foot range. it's all about money
at that point. How much and what do you like. Contenders for ocean cruisers could include but not be limited to : Hallberg Rassey, Swan, Passport, Moody, Valiant, Taswell, Shannon, Alden, Oyster
, Wauquiez, etc. those are the off the top of my head
ones. They are all very different and depending on age can vary significantly within the brand. Have fun dreaming of the next boat.
