In Annapolis......Ready to Sail Around the World Today AGAIN!!!TURN-KEY READY........Great News for you!

Miss Red has new sails, new hull paint, perfectly faired bottom, new running rigging, new canvas, full new electronics, new batteries, new everything.


The famous Valiant 50 that was the cover girl of the Valiant 50 Brochure is offered for sale! She was the red one, launched in 2001, commissioned and rigged for a circumnavigation by her first owners, a serious sailing couple. She was outfitted with a wonderful Leisurefurl in-boom furling system and is upgraded with new Navtec rod rigging and a new suite of sails. Her bottom was sand blasted to baby smooth with new barrier coat and new bottom paint. She has been lightly used for the past six years and constantly maintained and upgraded.

The Leisurefurl in boom furling system and a dozen other advantages to make sailing easy and safe. In 2009, she received the award from Valiant Yachts for being the first to circumnavigate on a Valiant 50! She was restored to perfect condition by her first owner with a new paint job that is stunning. Her second owner is rightfully so proud of Miss Red, as she is called. He has loved and upgraded her with new rod rigging, new electronics, new sails and storm sails as well as all the safety gear.

For the first few years, Miss Red, cruised New England in the summer roaming from Annapolis to Newport to Block Island and Nantucket and all the lovely spots. In 2014 she and her captain and crew were getting ready for the Newport to Bermuda Race! This was the really big adventure and in preparation, Miss Red received the royal treatment and lavish expense account. She easily passed the rigorous safety inspection required for entry. She made a good passage and was definitely noticed! After a double hand return to the shore of Massachusetts in early June, 2015, she made the trip to Nova Scotia! It’s true what they say…the fog is mostly off the coast! Miss Red enjoyed the whole summer up there. The sail back was exciting with 25 knot winds in fog with 40 degree weather. Miss Red performed flawlessly and everything worked from the new B&G navigation system to the mechanicals. She was flawless.  In 2016, Miss Red again made the trip to Bermuda, completing the journey in four days with winds of every variety from storm force to the infamous light and variable “Bermuda High”. Miss Red sailed beautifully through it all and we are not surprised!  Miss Red sailed from Bermuda to Charleston, SC, where she is presently lives.

Where ever she goes, Miss Red is noticed! They call her Big Red! Up in Nova Scotia at the NS Royal Yacht Squadron, she drew crowds both on and off the water. In Bermuda, many crew from other boats and even staff from the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club came to visit and “take a look”. Just look at the pictures. She is amazingly spectacular!

We especially love this Valiant 50 because she has served both her owners so very well. This is a rare opportunity to own a famous Valiant 50 that is absolutely proven. She circumnavigated with hardly a hiccup while other cruisers suffered failures and breakdowns. I guess this is why Valiant is the choice for solo sailors and for live aboard cruising couples. It is because safety and dependability are the foremost reasons that couples choose Valiant. It’s quality! Valiant construction is second to none! This is one of the strongest boats you could possible own. The equipment installation is superior and maintainable anywhere in the world. It’s Performance! The Valiant 50’s speed and sailing characteristics in all conditions are proven beyond doubt. The Valiant 50 is a magnificent powerful sailing vessel that faster and more comfortably than its sailing companions including many other high caliber vessels. It’s proven! This proven design and hull shape with its classic Bob Perry cruising fin keel and skeg hung rudder has proved a well mannered race horse. She tracks straight and true. She is easily balanced and steered by her auto pilot. In her previous life, she sailed around the world steered by the autopilot in all conditions even flying the spinnaker for days on end. Sailors on other boats had to hand steer at the least pleasant of times!

She’s easy to sail. Sailing short-handed, means one person must to feel comfortable and secure in all conditions, whether taking friends for a cruise or sailing the coast as a couple, or circumnavigating the world when two small people easily sailed the boat in all conditions without crew on any passage. Miss Red is equipped with an in-boom furling mainsail Leisurefurl system and Schaefer roller furling headsails the boat is properly rigged with an electric winch and she is extremely easy to sail.
