The Valkyrie was designed with one thing in mind, speed. Coming in at 17'8" (pre-production specs) the Valkyrie is similar in length to the P&H Cetus MV, yet due to a wonderfully long water-line, aided by the vertical bow and cut away stern, the Valkyrie is arguably the fastest boat in the P&H range. The vertical bow als helps to counteract windage.
At a quick glance of the water the Valkyrie might appear to be rather unstable, what with its narrow bow and slender deck. But fear not! A large square cross-section under the seat makes for a very stable and confidence inspiring platform.
Paddle entry cutaways just in front of the cockpit allow for a more efficient, vertical paddle stroke that's closer the boat. Yet another feature that makes this boat brilliant to paddle at speed.
Don't think this boat is just for racing though. Two large bow and stern hatches, as well as optional day and mini hatches, make this boat ideal for expedition paddling, either in land or out to sea.
The standard Overstern Rudder, or optional Understern Rudder, work wonderfully meaning that you can focus on laying the power down using less correction strokes.
