Broker's Comments

The Rival 32 is a traditional cruiser with a long fin keel. They are well known for their sea-keeping abilities and many have made ocean passages. This one has been in the same ownership from new and her owner fitted her out to a very good standard. The interior finishes are still very good, as can be seen from the photographs. You will also note that externally she looks a bit scruffy at the moment this is because she did not get used last year or this. The boat has however been cared for the engine has been winterised and the spars removed and stored under cover. The engine is worth a mention it was extensively re-built in 2008 and has only completed about 20 hours running time since.
With a good polish and some new deck paint this lovely yacht will be back up to scratch in no time.
