Rival Rose was bought by the previous owners in (approx) 1998. They began a restoration project, taking the boat out of the water in Vilamoura Marina, Portugal and giving her an osmosis treatment. She was therefore completely stripped internally and numerous new fixtures and fittings were purchased, including a new engine. However, due to personal reasons the owners never put her back together again. The current owner purchased her in June 2006 with a plan to primarily get her sailing again, envisaging trips in Mediterranean waters. She was re-launched in September 2006. However, pets and seasick children have put paid to anything more than day sails along the Portuguese coast.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.This really Beautiful Rival 34 has spent eight years out of the water undergoing a re-fit.
It was originally built in 1973 hull no 41 and has wonderful lines, notice in particular the upward protruding bow, which is a signature of this design.
It has two cabins/two double berths a galley comprising /sink and fridge opposite sits the Navigation table below the companionway starboard side.
Some of the 2005 instalments include Anderson winches/ Yanmar 3GM 30hp Diesel Engine, also Stainless Standing Rigging.
A real gem this true sailing craft with a real pedigree,……..a consideration for anyone starting up as a first sailing boat, a real sturdy blue water classic for those experienced sea dogs prepared to sail long distance.

Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

Este realmente é um lindo Rival 34, passou oito anos fora de agua para ser todo reconstruido. Foi originalmente contruido em 1973 com o casco nº41 e lindas linhas, em particular a proa levantada. Muitas coisas foram instaladas em 2005 tais como o guincho Anderson/ motor Yanmar 3gm de 30hp a diesel etc..Estamos perante uma verdadeira preciosidade.
