Teak ceilings against the hull, including inside lockers, white Formica countertops and cabin sides, removable gloss white overhead panels and a teak and holly cabin sole, of selected Burmese teak, throughout. The hull is well insulated by virtue of construction and the Passport 42’ is perhaps best known for the tremendous capacity for storage aboard.

The interior of "The Valiant 42" features a functional tri-cabin layout with large forward and aft staterooms and a spacious central salon, plus a good sized head with separate shower compartment.

Forward of the V-berth, there is access to a large, divided chain/rode locker with additional storage, through teak doors.

The port settee is a large "L" shaped settee and to starboard, is a full length settee. Upholstery is new, a rich and durable "premium" fabric. Above and outboard of the settees you will find abundant storage under, outboard, over and behind settees with book shelves, shelves and lockers, locker doors are all louvered, a feature much appreciated by the serious liveaboard cruiser.

The nav station can easily double as the ships "home office" and provides an excellent area for charting an afternoon sail, or plotting a course across the seven seas.

There are lots of drawers and locker storage in this comfortable cabin and a 2nd, courtesy head under the ensuite seating cushion. Additionally, there are 2 opening ports and an overhead hatch for excellent ventilation.

GENERAL INFORMATION: (ADDITIONAL SALESMANS COMMENT OTHER FEATURES & REMARKS) A safe, strong, robust, bluewater passagemaker, "The Valiant 42" provides a gracious lifestyle for extended periods aboard. The Passport 42 design by Stan Huntingford is often considered to be one of the very best all around, true cruising boats available, by virtue of her stout construction, beautiful finish details, remarkable layout features, comfort and safety features, sailing qualities and value. With the additional benefits of innumerable upgrades, "The Valiant 42" is indeed an extraordinary boat to come to the brokerage market.

"The Valiant 42" was originally a fresh water boat cruising the Great Lakes in the summer and spent winters in an inside covered storage. She has only been in Southern climes and at sea for the last 2 years. She is equipped for bluewater passagemaking, the owners planned an extended cruise and due to family changes, her loving owners have decided to place this beautiful yacht on the brokerage market for her next discriminating owner. She is a rare find, owned by experienced sailors and set up to be short-handed, the proper offshore system for "couple-cruising. All manuals, warranties and available original brochures are maintained aboard and will be passed on to her new owner.

"The Valiant 42" has been thoughtfully and expertly designed by one of the "best in the industry", combining current technology for both comfort and speed. This results in a deck layout that would do justice to a Grand Prix yacht, an interior with accommodations that are consistent with extended, liveaboard, bluewater sailing, a standard of quality and luxury that those familiar with Passport Yachts, will readily acknowledge. All construction in Taiwan was under the direct supervision of Passport Yachts International by Wendell Rankin. As with most high quality boatyards, the builder continually refined and improved details of construction, finishing and interior layout throughout production. "The Valiant 42" was amongst the last of the 50-60 hulls built and definitely benefited from the experience of previously built hulls. Sail magazine wrote of the Passport 42’, "(Wendell) Rankin made sure the Airex-cored cruiser was built right. The 42’s canoe stern, somewhat bluff, dorylike bow, curving sheer and long trunk cabin are cruising icons...she looks pretty and purposeful...her long waterline suggests an impressive speed potential and her balanced rig lets her take advantage of it".
