The Valiant 42 SILVER LINING represents a rare opportunity to have a one owner boat that has seen only seasonal use since new. The boat was highly customized when built and includes many options. Stored covered in winter months with the rig stored indoors the boat shows as a much younger vessel. This Robert Perry design has proven to be easily handled by a crew of two in all conditions. The cutter rig performs well at all points of sale and will get you to your destinations quickly and safely. Just launched for the season after its annual bottom paint and commissioning, SILVER LINING is ready to go at a moments notice. Additional pictures and build specifications available on request.
