What reports about the Valiant? I'd be interested to know!

I have a Valiant 520 with a 60HP 2 Stroke with red tubes (Almost what you were after...but not actually for sale!)

Hi,

Set my heart on buying a Valiant 520 with 60hp but not sure now. I just been looking on google for link report that said not as good as Ribcraft or Humber. Mind you at the end of the day it's about what budget you have and what you want to do with the Rib.

In the past anyone on here looking for a particular brand has been directed towards a whole heap of boats they never considered. Better have a few makes and models in mind and concentrate on finding a good one rather than ending up with the exact thing you want but ending up with a pile of rubbish.

As for Valiants, I saw a loverly 5m+ on the slip the other day, I'd not have swapped it for mine for it though.

I had a Valiant 5m as my 5th RIB and thought it was a great boat!
