The Valiant 40 SAOIRSE is prepared to interest you as the fast, comfortable and famously recognized cruising yacht model. Built in Seattle for the subsequent owner of Valiant yachts as hull #250, she is reported free of blister history.

The deck is well laid out with teak capped toe rails, mast mounted halyard winches, Furling, sheets and reefing lines are led aft to the deep cockpit which is protected by a Tartarooga hard top dodger with canvas/vinyl window drops

The teakwood accommodations are functional and comfortable at sea or dockside, featuring a v-berth forward, head with separate shower stall, traditional main saloon with a fold-down bulkhead table, u-shape galley, dedicated navigation station, an aft cabin with a spacious double berth and lots of storage all around will make for happy cruising.

CORRECTION: The 50hp BETA diesel engine (2016) is reported with 83 hours on the clock.

This vessel’s history includes it’s 1982 construction for Mr. Rich Worstell (later the owner of the Valiant Yachts) in Kent, Washington and is identified as hull #250 – thus laminated and constructed after the infamous use of blistering fire retardant resins. (The present owner reports never encountering a blister on this vessel.)

The then new vessel was transported to Texas for use on Lake Texoma and later sold into Houston, Texas. As a US documented vessel the GUNDAGAI II, cruised the Gulf of Mexico extensively.

The present owners purchased the vessel in 1999, transported her to Seattle and cruised the waters of Puget Sound. In 2008 she was refit with new standing rigging, sails, and electronics prior to a 2-year adventure on Mexico’s Pacific Ocean coast. 2010 saw the returning SAOIRSE sailed north to San Francisco. 2012 SAOIRSE returned to Seattle via road transport for use on Puget Sound since.
