Broker's Comments

The first Valiant 40 was launched in 1973 and subsequent production boats have won a string of class wins and industry accolades in the last two decades. This V40 has been cruised extensively by her present owners who have regularly serviced and cared for her over the years. The interior is immaculate by any standards and mechanically she is very sound. Very comprehensive inventory and she looks great on the water. VAT Paid
