ITASCA is a fine example of extremely capable and seaworthy Valiant 39. Designed by famed naval architect Bob Perry, ITASCA is built to the highest Valiant standards. Her hull is laid up in one piece of solid glass, hand laminated with alternate layers of mat and woven roving. Isophthalic resin is used throughout, from the gel coat right on into the laminate. With this high standard applied to every aspect of her construction, ITASCA is ready to safely take her new owners wherever they may wish to sail in comfort and style.

The interior layout features an enclosed forward v-berth, followed immediately aft by a double settee salon featuring a center-line double folding table. Aft of the salon, on the starboard side, is the u-shaped galley then the enclosed aft cabin. On the port side is the full navigation station followed by the enclosed head w/separate shower. The head, aft cabin, and galley are all very conveniently located at the base of the main companionway steps, making utilization of these areas much easier while at sea. Interior teak joinery in good condition. Courtesy lights in the salon. Stainless steel opening ports with screens an hatch covers.
ITASCA is fully equipped with a high-end Furuno navigation package, a dual station VHF and an Icon SSB transceiver.
The engine room is a dedicated space with access both through the aft of the toilet or by removing the companionway engine box. One of the requirements for a blue water voyaging vessel is access to everything and Valiant passes the test.

The Valiant 39 is the progressive advancement of the Valiant 37, sharing the look and styling of its legendary predecessor. Significantly, the Valiant 39 deck features a cockpit that is completely wrapped with an offshore coaming for both comfort and safety. Seating areas are fully guttered. An expanded, recessed propane storage system is included. The frontal portion of the cabin trunk is contoured in its transition to the foredeck. The deck design provides for maximum flexibility, while the below deck volume is increased and there are no predetermined locations for the hatches, port lights and companionway. There are enough variations within the interior arrangements of the Valiant 39 to offer an almost unlimited choice to the customer. The Valiant 39CE or "Center Entry," provides for a more open interior, and yet allows for a true three-cabin layout. The head is located aft and the two separate staterooms greatly enhance below-deck livability. The Valiant 39 features a double spreader rig, which is matched with a short bowsprit to maximize sailing efficiency. Among the critical components built into every Valiant yacht are an externally-ballasted, lead keel; one-piece, hand-laid hull; and externally flanged, through-bolted hull-to-deck joints. From the first Valiant we ever built, only U.S. Navy specifications have been used to lay-up our hulls and decks. This lay-up schedule produces a solid fiberglass hull that is the strongest one-piece hull in the world. The deck lay-up includes end grain balsa core with high-density foam in certain specific areas. The entire boat, including all of the bonds, cockpit hatches, engine bed stringers and floor timbers is laid up of 100 percent isophthalic resin of the highest quality. All of the resin used in Valiants is hand-batched in one gallon increments to eliminate any possibility of improper machine catalization.
Here's a excerpt from a Cruising World review of the Valiant 39:
Construction details read like a primer on how to build a boat so it won’t fall apart. The hull is laid up in one piece of solid glass, hand laminated with alternate layers of mat and woven roving. Isophthalic resin is used throughout, from the gel coat right on into the laminate. Floor timbers are built up of heavy layers of mat and woven roving over PVChigh-density closed-cell foam; these reinforce the underbody and extend into the sump, a sturdy element rendered with up to two inches of solid glass. The keel consists of 7,000 pounds of external lead bedded to the bottom of the sump with 3M 5200, and secured by no fewer than 11 3/4-inch stainless J bolts topped with 1/4-inch stainless backing plates and stainless nuts. The deck utilizes Baltek balsa core for stiffness and weight reduction, with structural foam in areas of major stress; it is affixed to the hull on an inturned flange with 5200 and stainless bolts on 4 1/2-inch centers. Whoa.
The rig is a keel-stepped, high-aspect masthead affair with two sets of spreaders, fore-and-aft lowers, and an inner forestay brought to the stem aft of the bowsprit for cutter work. Standing rigging port and starboard terminates at chain plates secured with stainless bolts and backing plates to hefty structural knees bonded into the hull.c
