Valiant 490

Hey,

What's the max HP behind Valiant 490 RIB? Anyone experience with this kind of model? Someone said me, that Valiant boats are made of hypalon, is this correct?
I've seen one from '96 with a Johnson 50 HP '92. What should be the max price for this?
Just let me know...

Tnx,
Jan

I'm pretty certain that the Valiant 490 is the same as a Yam 490 we have one in our Yard I'll have a look at the plate tomorrow and tell you what the HP is.

Valiant´s are available both with PVC and Akron (Hypalon) tubes, I doubt they make for Yam but nothing is for certain in this world any more.

Took recently Valiant DR490 (Akron tubes) out with Mercury 55 SEA PRO engine and with three on board we logged in 34,5 knoths

Yep, 80hp is the max. Had one with a 75 Mercury 2stroke on the back and it was scary!!

Definitely no more than 80hp, and try to keep the weight down to avoid a stern-heavy rig.

I would say these tubes are PVC, based on the colour scheme.

I am sorry but I can not figure out value, there are more experiance chaps on here that might help in that respect.

I can recommend the boat alright.

The whole set (boat, motor and trailer) is 6000 euro. I don't know if that is expensive or not :s

BTW nice pictures Bogib!

2 years ago I paid £5,000 for my 1994 5.2m Narwhal NK which is similar though marginally bigger with a 1994 55hp Suzuki and nearly new trailer. However it was in very good condition with full service history for the engine. This included VHF, GPS, fishfinder, flares, Anchor and was literally ready to go.

Assuming this is in a similar condition, and hopefully includes the kit, 6000 euro (£4000 ish) seems reasonable to me but I wouldn't claim to be an expert.
