OooooooH V42.... NICE!

Best of luck in your search, that is a beautiful boat to have on the short list!

Something about a canoe end that just makes a boat look sexy... I don't know why... Maybe it's the time I spend in Northern Europe as a kid and seeing all the double enders that just attracts me to that kind of boat.

Cheers

Gee Ocean girl, you never called my Valiant beautiful! But I agree, the boat is a legend in quality and in looks. Of course I am partial...

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Hope you can find the best boat for you. A 42 is great for a couple or family. If you are single-handing I'd go for something smaller.
kind regards,

Gee, Sandfox.....retiring and thinking about a Valiant 42. That put's you in the top 1% of dreamers who wish they could, and can :-)

Great boat. Don't look any further.

And, WELCOME to the Cruisers Forum. Lotsa good info here. Lotsa bum info. Lotsa good guys and gals. Lotsa bums, too.

We got it all :-) One-stop shopping!

Bill
