Broker's Comments

The Rival 34 is a much sort after sea vessel.
An exceptional example of this very sought after craft. The pictures say everything about the care and maintenance lavished on this Rival 34. Her reputation is of being a solid cruiser well suited to long-distance passages and yet equally well suited for coastal waters.
