Broker's Comments

The Rival 34 has always been a favourite of mine. Striking lines and awesome sailing ability she is a true blue water boat. Her quite high bow makes for a reasonably dry boat and moving along the wide decks is unhindered by standing or running rigging making for a very safe and secure feeling. Her current owner has cruised Northern Europe and the Western Channel extensively. She benefits from new upholstery and headlining although the woodwork could do with some varnishing. A true thoroughbred classic.
