About this Rival 32


We are pleased to offer for sale this Rival 32 which has been in the same ownership for over 31 years. Built c.1976, this is a much-loved yacht which has benefited from many upgrades over the years including a new Yanmar 3GM30 engine (2001), new standing rigging wires (2013-14) and all interior woodwork has been replaced with teak!

Some history from the vendor:

The engine was new in 2001 and at the same time it had a new shaft and propeller fitted. The engine has been professionally serviced every year and it had a major service in 2022. The running hours as estimated by the vendor are 750. The cutlass bearing was replaced in 2022 and the stern glad was replaced in 2020.

The hull was stripped back, and epoxy coated in 1998 (5 coats) (no trace of osmosis) and again in 2014 (2 coats), except the keel. Also done in 2014, the rudder was removed, bearing checked and all was okay. The hull and keel are made from one single moulding, therefore there are no keel bolts. The mast is sleeved at the base – which was welded and re-anodised in 2004. The spreaders fitting was re-bushed in 2004 also.

All seacocks were replaced in 1998 with Blakes and they have been stripped and greased annually since. The heads outlet and cockpit drain were replaced again in 2019. The engine water inlet was removed from the hull, cleaned, and replaced in 2021. The heads pump was serviced in 2019 and all hoses were replaced. It also had a new diaphragm fitted. The freshwater pump was fitted in 2009 and the filter is replaced every year (last replaced in June 2022).
