The VV atom in the title compound, [V(C8H9N2O)(C17H14N2O3)O]·CH3OH, is N,O-chelated by the benzoylhydrazidate anion and O,N,O'-chelated by the (benzoylhydrazono)propionate dianion. The octahedral trans-N2O4 coordination geometry is completed by the vanadyl O atom. Two mononuclear complexes and two solvent molecules are linked by O-H...O and O-H...N hydrogen bonds, generating a centrosymmetric aggregate.
