Broker's Comments

I'm a particular lover of Rivals, especially blue hulled ones and this one is beautiful, it has been lovingly looked affter and benefits from full proffessional osmosis treatment and a complete hull re paint, she has new covers and sprayhood etc, has all been adapted for single handed cruising and the inside has just being finished off with the refurbishment.
An excellent cruising boat with literally nothing to do but sail.
