Broker's Comments

A good working example of this robust, go-anywhere cruiser. Whilst aboard taking the photographs the engine was quietly purring away in the background and I was impressed at how little vibration there was.

Although these boats are not known for their fancy frippery, the saloon was nonetheless a pleasant place to spend some time and she has a Taylors diesel heater to extend the number of months you can use her.

The impressive looking Monitor self-steering gear requires a mention, as a new one would set you back £5,000.

The mainsail had a crisp feel to it and appears in good order.

Overall a keenly priced Rival 32' that is ready to set sail.
