Broker's Comments

We are pleased to offer this example of the popular cruiser.

She's been modified and extended from the standard Rival 32 to allow for the extended cruising her Owner has done. She's definitely a go anywhere boat and has completed two circumnavigations of the UK, including the Orkneys and Northern Ireland!

She's very well equipped but needs a little TLC now, and is offered at a very competitive price for the package.

The berth may also be available, by separate negotiation with BWML, which would incur a 5% transfer fee payable to them, directly.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.

This Rival 32 has been personally photographed and viewed by Paul Watson of Boatshed Yorkshire. Click here for contact details.
