The Valiant 47 is the perfect long range off-shore performance cruising boat with all the live aboard comforts and great design for an ocean going, true blue water boat. You might also know that the Valiant 47 is a Bob Perry design which later became the Valiant 50 with the addition of a bow sprite and retooling on deck. The 47 is an amazing vessel made famous by the solo circumnavigation by William Pinkney, the fourth person to sail around the world alone back in 1990 aboard his Valiant 47 “Commitment”. So many Valiant have circumnavigated!  A Valiant 47 sistership made two solo circumnavigations, one of which was non-stop. This sailing vessel is easy to single hand and therefore easy to sail as a couple. With a fin keel and long forefront, the boat tracks straight steered effortlessly by the autopilot or better yet, the wind vane steering. Due to the long forefoot, she tacks easily through the wind. The designer Robert Perry says “I drew a lithe Valiant with a sharp entry…”  He liked the 47 better than the 42 because of that very design element.  Down below the accommodations are well planned for voyaging. While the boat ultimately sleeps up to seven people, she is a truly comfortable live aboard for a couple.  

If you are looking for an affordable live aboard blue water boat that is capable safe and comfortable, take a close look at this wonderful Oasis. She truly is a beautiful Oasis in the ocean. Originally commissioned in the San Francisco area her first owners never really cruised. In about 2000 her second owners voyaged through the Panama Canal to the Caribbean and ended up in Annapolis. Her current owners are the third owners purchased her in 2010 in Annapolis MD. They refit her as needed for their cruising plan to the Caribbean where they enjoyed a few seasons. After the Caribbean they returned to the Chesapeake for some East Coast cruising and a final trip South. Oasis has been upgraded and maintained by her knowledgeable owners for the past eight years. She has never been heavily cruised and she is ready to go again.

You will enjoy hearing directly from the owners of this rock solid cruiser.  ….“Oasis has been a real confidence builder for my wife and me. We are not big people and, although Oasis is a relatively big boat for two, my wife and I have developed systems that allow us to easily handle her. The cockpit is well designed and laid out and my wife and I feel secure in it in any conditions we have encountered. Each time we have pushed our comfort zone by going out in more challenging conditions, Oasis has taken it all in stride and we have come away being ever more impressed with her. Oasis is a true sailor’s sailboat.  I truly believe she has a soul that comes alive when you turn off the engine and start sailing. She is comfortable at anchor….not a marina queen. Where she really shines is underway and especially when the wind picks up and conditions become more challenging. We love her speed. More lightly built boats may be a little faster in light airs ( less than ~12-15 knots). When the wind picks up Oasis comes alive. We generally leave lighter boats in our wake. We love sailing her!

What can I say after that! Valiant have made many couples into successful happy sailors. Personally owning two Valiant and still sailing our V42, I can tell you, you will never be sorry to own her!

This Valiant 47 Oasis is a fabulous ocean going liveaboard sailing vessel! You will find few great boats that have been loved and used and upgraded constantly for largely all her life. If you don’t want to spend a half million or at least many hundreds of thousands, you should think about buying one of the world’s best built boats loved, maintained, and upgraded to serve you well. You may know that the Valiant 47 hull is from the same mold as the Valiant 50; it’s the same boat minus the Valiant 50 bowsprit! There have been many circumnavigations of the Valiant 47 and Valiant 50. The Valiant 47 is a half the price!

You will always hope to find a solid vessel that someone has upgraded and maintained like this! She’s due in Annapolis in spring and currently cruising up from the Islands. Find out more…call now.
