About Beguine

What a fabulous surprise! We are delighted to have our new Valiant offering and sistership of our V42 is just back from a circumnavigation! Beguine, as she is called, is an extremely well equipped and self-sufficient Valiant 42 built in 2008. She is hull number 180 and among the very last Valiant 42s to be built. This Center Entry Queen V Cutter is rigged for world cruising and is happy on the hook or anywhere with solar and wind power, an amazing battery bank of 1000 plus amp hours and a massive alternator, 210 amps. This 12 volt power plan makes so much sense for world cruising or just roaming the out islands of the Bahamas. Not only that, but with an extra fuel tank in place of the generator, she has more fuel and greater range than any other Valiant. That is a big plus! After a seven-year circumnavigation the owners who originally had Beguine built are ready to do other things. They are headed for Annapolis MD to arrive in early Spring with Beguine ready for her next adventure. Beguine has taken good care of them and they have cared well for her. She is outfitted for cruising simplicity with everything you need and nothing to make it more complicated. Beguine also has amazing spares for everything. With circumnavigation as the clear objective, the spares were all accumulated during the construction and the installation of the equipment. The owner, a capable engineer, was meticulous with regard to the spares inventory. It would take you years to gather everything you could possibly need. It’s amazing because everything well organized, documented, and stowed. Beguine has everything necessary for cruising. She has a 55 HP diesel which is an Isuzu marinized by Westerbeke, diesel heat, water maker, solar panels, wind generator, LED lights, Iridium phone and Wifi, 12 volt refrigeration, and summer and winter cockpit enclosures as well as a full winter cover. If you are searching for a blue water boat that can take good care of you, just know that there is good reason why the Valiant 42 has remained the choice for cruising couples and solo sailors. The Valiant 42 is easy to sail single hand, or double hand as a cruising couple. The sailing characteristics of a Valiant 42 are perfect a couple as with the cutter rig providing a divided sail plan where everything is of manageable size. On deck, everything is designed and planned for safety at sea everything from the hard dodger to the solid stern rails and the winches within easy reach of the helm provides well thought out functionality that translates to comfort and safety. In addition to how the boat sails, she is also built like a tank! A very well thought-out tank. The Valiant is incredibly tough, robustly dependable, and entirely possible to maintain anywhere in the world. The solid hand laid fiberglass hull is robust and literally everything about the boat is seriously overbuilt which gives you and your mate great confidence in all conditions. The systems installations are top notch with everything properly engineered and installed in a way that makes it easy to maintain the boat anywhere in the world. You can actually access every single piece of the boat. Every piece, tanks, engine, everything can come out the companionway the way it came in! The Valiant 42 interior is extremely livable. You have everything you need! You have a really great kitchen, great bedroom, perfect bathroom with stall shower, organized engine room, a wonderful nautical salon, and a guest room or garage space. Beguine even has the settee that makes a double on the port side of the salon! She’s a wonderful home and the best world cruising voyager you could ever wish for.
