Valkyrie is a Nelson Halmatic 42 and was built in 1977 by Guernsey Boatbuilding & Engineering Company, Havant Guernsey . Nelson boats have achieved world wide acclaim for their strength and sea keeping abilities. Although the 42 hull was designed for commercial applications (like all previous Nelsons), it's seagoing abilities make it a very suitable basis for a fine motor yacht with loads of accommodation. The 42 has more beam, more depth and more shape in the forward sections than the earlier boats and these features produce a hull that can not only carry the higher displacements but also give a drier ride and better handling in following seas. The powerful Twin Ford Sabre 250hp engines where replaced in 1988 and have plenty of hours on the clocks, but still going strong. She also has a very nice Aft Helm position with all the instruments repeated and a large sunning deck.
