This Colvin built steel boat is a tribute to a renowned designer, who specialized in sturdy cruising vessels. Valkyrie is built from Corten Steel with foam insulation throughout. The original owners had the boat built in a boatyard in North Carolina, with input from Thomas Colvin. They built it for their cruising needs (a couple with occasional guests) and cruised extensively from Maine to the Bahamas for several years in a row.
The cockpit is deep and safe, ketch rig with 2 fore-sails, the Yankee on a bowsprit, allows for a variety of sail plans. Wide side decks and high bulwarks are good for moving about. Full keel provides stability.
Valkyrie has spent recent years on the Chesapeake Bay, but her owners are ready to pass her on to the next stewards for the next adventures.

Valkyrie needs a bit of cosmetic work on the exterior. She is a strong vessel, designed for offshore cruising. She's rearing to go.
