Broker's Comments

A very popular model from the Peter Brett design range of classic Rival yachts. The Rival 38 is a very sturdy long distance blue water cruiser as well as a very comfortable and capable weekend sailer that would certainly show a few of those more modern boats a thing or two in the regattas. Accommodation for 6 below in 3 cabins with a spacious saloon. British Registered. Spanish Special Matricualtuion Tax Paid. Fully coded for charter with safety equipment.
