Yngling USA 274 "Valkyrie" for Sale

Updated: Oct 30

Yngling USA 274  "Valkyrie" - This is probably the most perfectly balanced sailboat that I have sailed. Can be raced single handed or with a crew of 2 or 3. There are many boats registered at Minnetonka Yacht Club and the fleet is active and growing. The boat is from 1978 and in very good overall condition. I have not raced the boat for a few years and it needs a new home.


Boat with used sails (not including the Canadian spinnaker) $4500 obo Boat with new main, 180 full, and Canadian spinnaker $6500 obo

The bottom has had all blisters removed and filled with Interlux 2 part epoxy filler, then 9 coats of Interlux 2001E barrier coat, sanded smooth, and, each year, coated with VC 17 (or similar West Marine product). The standing rigging is in very good condition, side stays were replaced a few years ago (maybe 5-6 years by now) and are equal length making tuning easy. The running rigging is also in good shape, newer lines for many of the controls. Sails Mains New Doyle main (still in the bag from Doyle) Used Doyle, still has some good life Used Inland, a training main sail Jibs New Doyle 180 full (still in the bag from Doyle) Used Doyle 180 Med, 2006 measurement date Used Quantum Jib Used Inland Sails, heavy air jib Spinnakers Fairly new, lightly used (never sailed on Minnetonka) Canadian national team spinnaker (with nice red Maple Leaf emblem) Used spin, the sail that I used most for racing Used spin, good for training and getting the crew work figured out for sets and takedowns, might be ok for racing in some conditions but I have not used it. Trailer is in very good condition and tows well, but no known issues Additional equipment compass bilge pump (hand operated) solar panel/battery/electric pump newer style tension gauge tiller extensions two paddles anchor and line heavy duty tow line 2 buoy lines (3' or so with clips/shackles) cockpit cover (used at the buoy or dock/lift) boat cover (used for traveling or winter storage) fenders
