Valiant 40

"What began as a challenge to design and build a fast, comfortable, safe cruising yacht, a vessel capable of long-distance deepwater voyaging, evolved into one of the most popular yacht designs ever produced. The cut-away forefoot, modified fin keel with external lead, and skeg-hung rudder reduced wetted surface area. Performance was terrific in comparison to more traditional designs, and comfort was not sacrificed. "
