Description: IN THE OWNERS WORDS:
Moon River is a 1988 Texas-built (non-blister) Valiant 40. We bought her in 2010, wanting a boat that could comfortably, safely and swiftly take our family of four long-range cruising.

Since then, we have lived aboard for 18 months, home-schooled our daughters at the fold-out saloon table, and covered a good 30,000 miles. In four Atlantic crossings, and twice going up and down the US eastern seaboard, we encountered all the usual types of weather but never once had real drama. Moon River was just fulfilling her potential. This summer we cruised to Cape Cod and, time allowing, would have happily kept going.

Moon River has been set up to avoid marinas and expensive repair services. The boat is stripped down, simplified, and seaworthy. She's also a Valiant, with all the standard features, so naturally that means comfort and tons of space.

We requipped pretty much everything in 2010-13. There was another big requip in 2015, focusing on the mast and rigging. We do annual maintenance and incidental replacements constantly to ensure that everything is protected and that we can remain independent.

A speck of rust appears on the engine and it gets sanded and painted. Filters get replaced well before maximum hours. Winches are stripped and greased yearly. Thruhulls are dismantled and re-greased every year. The two diesel tanks are emptied and cleaned manually every year. Same with the water tanks. The halyards are taken down for storage every winter.

I have all the paper charts and all the cruising guides you need for an Atlantic circuit: US east coast, Atlantic islands, Atlantic Europe (UK, France in particular), west Africa, Caribbean west and east, Bahamas. There is a personal blog during some of our Atlantic trips. There are numerous pictures and stories about traveling on the boat. Here is the link.

Excellent visibility from all positions is consistent with the proven offshore capability that the sailing world expects from a Valiant. The mast is keel stepped, Hull color is white and the whale stripe is a deep Pacific Blue.

Her owners have chosen to pursue a life style ashore and after considerable debate have decided to place this fine yacht on the brokerage market. All manuals and original brochures which may be aboard will be passed on to the new owner. She has been thoughtfully and expertly designed by the best in the industry, then combining current technology and materials for comfort, speed and visual appeal, she is a fine candidate as your bluewater, offshore, shorthanded sailing dreams.
