About this Rival 32


"Princely Rival" is a good example of this well-respected long-distance cruising yacht. Many Rival 32s have made serious ocean crossings however, she would be equally comfortable nearer home just cruising the South Coast. The fundamentals of this vessel are very good and with some updating, she would make an excellent, very robust cruising yacht. If you are looking for a traditional, very capable, deep-sea yacht at a very attractive price then be sure to view “Princely Rival”.

Owner’s Remarks

“Princely Rival” has not been used for 4 years but has been maintained, stored ashore each winter and launched each Spring.

Other Remarks

There is a survey report dated October 2003 which, although clearly quite old, shows the boat to have been very well built and completed. Here is an extract from the Report Summary - "As will be seen from this examination the vessel Princely Rival has not only been built to a high standard but maintained in this condition from the date of launching. There are a great many improvements not only in the selection of materials but in the general layout over and above the factory completed equivalent and these would have a bearing on replacement and resale-able value.
