Broker's Comments

Rivals are distinctive and highly regarded. Many have cruised extensively and certainly they are very capable and have a reputation for looking after all on-board.

This Rival 34 appears to be a sound example having been in the same ownership from new, however she would now benefit from some TLC to restore her to pristine.

If you are looking for a serious cruising yacht then look no further.
