Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A distinctive and classic sailing yacht that still represents a benchmark for good yacht design. Rival 32's are well known as excellent cruising yachts. The hull shape and rig design is very seaworthy and these boats are capable of extended blue water cruising. For the average yachtsperson they are easy to handle and secure when the wind gets up.

Below decks the accommodation is deceptively spacious but the layout is thoughtful and practical.

Upon leaving the boat I would say she is a good all-round cruiser that is ideal for a family or couple. She does need a good spruce up outside and the sails are a bit tired but she is a lot of boat for the money. Come and see or even try an offer.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
