Valiant 42 raised salon

Recommended Posts

I looked at the 42rs and like it but some things the brooker says are not clear they said it is 5 foot 8 inch draft that is not a shoal draft or a full keel? The lines running back to the cockpit over the salon are not bad the large flange on the windows is nice and the cockpit is still a good size. The extra tankage is a bonus. Is there any top secret things I should know about this lovely well done♡ raised salon (a little kissing up)

Flloyd:

You could go to my web site at www.perryboat. com and read about consultation.

I'm fairly certain that draft figure is wrong. Figure 6'2" draft. The PH model sails better than the standard model.

It's OK, you can buy the mod kit and nail it on.

The original V 40 did not have the bowsprit. I added the bowsprit to make the boat easier to balance.

When I did the PH model I moved the mast over a foot forward, Can't recall the exact measurement but it was significant. I want balance to be perfect and not demanding.
