2010 Valiant 50

50 ft


The Valiant 50 is a luxurious, spacious two-stateroom vessel built to order with
owner specified options. The specifications for this Valiant were based on the
original owner’s extensive experience living aboard and cruising for five years
on a Valiant 42. You are the beneficiary of his knowledge and experience.

The layout overview is as follows. As you come down the companionway there is a
large comfortable aft cabin to port and a very large head and stall shower to
starboard. Access to the dedicated engine room is through the head on the
starboard side, or by lifting the companionway stairs. Moving forward, there is
a truly magnificent galley to port with a pantry with four pull out drawers. A
sit down navigation station to starboard. The main salon is spacious and
comfortable with an U shaped settee to port that makes a double berth and a
straight settee to starboard, also an excellent sea berth. Forward is a larger V
berth made wider by slightly raising the berth creating even more storage below
it, one hanging lockers with storage below, and shelves over the berth outboard.
All the space in the forward cabin is used to advantage.

While the boat is built for function, you will admire the quality and the beauty
of the workmanship. Quality and craftsmanship are demonstrated in everything
from the cabin sole, to the joinery, to the furniture and fixtures, and
cushions, which are cream Ultra-leather. The interior woodwork is American
Cherry wood with a hand rubbed oil finish that is lovely and grows more and more
beautiful with every year. The centerline drop-leaf table is all cherry and has
extra coats of Varathane to totally protect it. The cabin sole is teak inlaid
with basswood strips coated with satin Varathane. The interior is beautiful
woodwork including the bulkheads, cabinetry, and the doors, and drawers, and
trim. Formica is used in the head, galley, and ceiling panels. The cream Formica
is a light, refreshing counterpoint to the warmth of the woodwork. Ash battens
line the hull sides warmly glow with soft satin finish. The cabin interior is
light and bright due to the Formica panels trimmed in Cherry on the house sides
and ceiling and the many opening ports and hatches. At night the lighting is
provided with dome lights and reading lights at the settees and the berths. All
the cabin lighting is upgraded to LED and there are red and white lights for
safety at the nav-station, and cockpit.

There are many beautiful boats built. What makes Valiant even more impressive is
its robust character of strength and endurance. Everywhere you look you will see
evidence of Valiant’s toughness. The robust construction of a Valiant you
observe will be confirmed the very first time you pick up a locking floorboard.
While “overbuilt” is the word that comes to mind, how can you over build a boat
for the oceans? Valiant’s built toughness gives one great confidence. While
everything is strong, you’ll also see it all very well executed. The drawers are
solid Cherry faced with Cedar bottoms and beautiful dovetailed corners and roll
out on easy going slides. The lockers have courtesy lights that come on when you
open the door. All the cabinets, and lockers securely lock with one hand. The
top opening refrigerator and freezer have locks just in case. The Hood stainless
steel opening ports and the upgrade to the Hood Stainless Steel hatches is just
wonderful. The ports and hatches provide wonderful light and ventilation and you
can see they are tough enough for the ocean.

Owner’s Stateroom

At anchor, the owner’s stateroom is the classic large queen V berth cabin
forward, the most popular layout, and this boat has an even bigger bed because
the whole berth is just a tad higher and actually moved aft 18 inches where the
boat is wider. It is great. What a difference! You can even sleep athwartship!
You can lie there and look at the beautiful Ash battens that line the sides of
the berth cabin and the Cherry cabinets on each side. Reading lights (LED) and
shelves port and starboard give perfect individual space for each occupant of
this spacious double berth. A large cabinet under the berth allows for storage
of shoes, and there is loads of deep storage under the berth. In the cabin,
there is a hanging locker on the port, with storage underneath, and shelves on
the starboard behind a cabinet door. The bi-fold Cherry door provides privacy
when you want it yet tucks out of the way.

Main Salon

The salon is extremely spacious with max headroom of 6”4”, and a traditional
centerline drop-leaf table and a U- shaped settee to port that pulls right out
to a double berth. No fuss. This layout sleeps seven if you want! There are lee
cloths for the settees for off shore sailing. There is storage behind the
settees, and the port/starboard water tanks below. To starboard there is a
straight settee with cabinetry and shelves outboard, and storage behind. The
salon is beautiful, with a lovely warm Cherry woodwork and cabinets and a
beautiful Teak and Basswood cabin sole. The main salon is light and well
ventilated with six opening ports and three opening hatches and two dorades for
ventilation. The cushions are upholstered in cream Ultra Leather. There has been
added LED lights over the salon table.


The Valiant classic U-shaped galley to port is considered one of the best
galleys on any boat. The galley wraps around with the sink at the bulkhead with
storage below and a big cabinet above. There is deep storage outboard of the
sinks. The ample counters are upgraded to Corian. On the port side, the stove
upgraded to a Force 10 stove with oven, and built in dish storage and storage
behind it. The refrigerator and freezer (very large) are forward. With

a custom big beautiful cabinet above for more storage. The counter space
continues with the trash bin and drawers below. And, most importantly, the
amazing Valiant pantry with its slide out shelves is just behind the nav station
completing the galley. The pantry is definitely one thing on your boat to be
coveted by all. The galley will make any chef very, very happy.

Navigation & Communication

The Valiant 50 has a wonderful navigation station that is your ship’s office.
The large chart table is entirely finished in cherry wood. The instrument panel
is customized for the instruments and easily modified when things change.
Configured with radar/plotter, SSB (IC-M802), and VHF (IC-M604) at the nav and
sailing instruments at the helm. A wonderful, flexible, nav station. The
electrical panel and all the monitoring systems are right there, all in one
place, in the ship’s office.

When it comes to systems installation, the build quality of Valiant Yachts is
evident. Everything on this boat is well thought out with consideration of
future maintenance. The engine room houses the Westerbeke 65 HP with a V drive
to accommodate the sleek underbody. The transmission has a brake that prevents
the shaft from turning. The Valiant factory does an outstanding job of
organizing and labeling every component, every thru hull, ever wire, and every
hose. So everything is done right and most everything is labeled. This is a
vessel that is easy to maintain anywhere in the world, and Valiant Yachts will
still ship parts anywhere in the world if you need them! In fact, other people
will stick close to you!

The hull is hand laid of solid fiberglass in a female mold. The gelcoat is
sprayed first into the mold and then the layup of the fiberglass completed. The
layup schedule of fiberglass mat and woven roving is robust. The Valiant hull is
the strongest hull imaginable as you will agree when you hold a cross section in
your hands. However, the owner who commissioned this Valiant added an extra pass
of the 1.5 oz mat and 24oz woven roving from keel sump to the radius to the
sheer. Only Isophthalic resin is used on the premises. It is catalyzed in
one-gallon increments and dyed red to ensure the proper wet out of the
fiberglass. Valiant’s massive rub rail is structurally part of the hull. The
hull is reinforced the entire length of the rub rail substrate of structural
high-density foam which is molded with an indentation to accept the sacrificial
teak rub rail with a stainless steel strake. It is a serious structural element,
not screwed on after the fact.

The construction of the Valiant is bullet proof and this one is even more so
with the additional layer of 1.5 oz matt and 24 oz woven roving from the keel
sump to the sheer. Even her owner admits this might be overkill, but when you go
to the high latitudes, you might appreciate the strongest hull you can have.

Deck & Cockpit

The deck is constructed in the same manner as the hull in a female mold.
Normally, solid fiberglass or fiberglass over structural foam is used in any
high stress areas so that every area where deck fittings or hardware are bedded,
the area is solid fiberglass. The rest of the deck is cored with end-grain balsa
which has properties that allow it to soak up the resins and adhere to the
laminate fiberglass to form a solid deck. The deck hatch placement was also
carefully considered and installed using Valiant’s hatch boss system with
upgrades to ensure that green water on the deck will never slide under the hatch
into the galley!

Every component mounted on the deck is mounted on solid fiberglass to eliminate
moisture intrusion and backing plates to ensure strength. When Valiant installs
it, there is no opportunity for moisture intrusion in the deck and that is why
this owner had Valiant do everything at the factory. Additionally in every area
this construction was upgraded from closed cell foam to solid glass. All with
the intent to make the boat bulletproof, forever! All of the deck hardware is
the best quality, from the Hood stainless steel ports and hatches to Lewmar
winches. Valiant stainless steel work is fabulous and they fabricate everything
at the factory using only the highest quality steel. The toe rail is aluminum
giving you the ability to attach blocks as you need to. The toe rail is bedded
with 5200 and through bolted to the hull deck flange. Stainless steel stanchions
are bulwark mounted, the way you want them, and support 31” high double life
