Rival 32 - Details

Designed by Peter Brett and built by Marine Construction (Woolston) Ltd, the Rival 32 is a very successful traditional long fin cruiser which superseded the Rival 31.
These boats are great all weather performers and have many ocean passages to their credit.

This one can have a lovely warm cosy feel inside and along with the EberSpacher heater and a headroom of 6 feet, has the potential to be warm and comfortable. She is now in need of some cosmetic work as a result of some rainwater ingress, particularly at the galley window. She is however sound and ready to sail, after season re-commissioning of course. Dramatically reduced in price.
