Priced to sell! This proven blue-water cruiser is clean, good-looking and in great condition with many thoughtful standard and custom design features. Wildwood has many splendid and safe adventures under her keel. She is a Texas-built Valiant - assembled with quality materials, workmanship and design. Both fast and stable, this is a must see vessel for someone intending to live aboard and travel widely. The custom dual tiller steering system - aimed at simplicity of maintenance and flexibility for vane steering - makes for a spacious cockpit while steering on autopilot or vane or, while at the dock and permits precision hand steering under tough conditions from the shelter of a generous dodger. Her extensive inventory includes a variety of newer, lightly used equipment and refits. Her interior varnished woodwork gives her a warm, homey ambiance and surfaces that stay fresh. A generous compliment of screened hatches and opening ports provide great air circulation for hot climates. The Valiant 40 is a classic cruiser, now out of production, so you will not find many on the market.
