"Swell A Rival" was purchased by her present owners in 1986, her second owners from new. She has proved to be a wonderful offshore family boat, with trips to Holland and Brittany as well as UK coastal cruises. She has been based at Bradwell Marina in Essex, laid up ashore during winter months and afloat on a pontoon berth in the Summer. Due to Covid and owners' advancing years, she was not launched last season, nor this. Her sails were valetted in 2019 and are ready to hoist, her engine was renewed and 2011 and has only run 217 hours, serviced each year until 2019/20. A modern Raymarine autopilot has recently been fitted (2016) and she is Coppercoated below the waterline. She would benefit from some external cleaning but her interior remains very good. These fine boats are rarely available and are ideal offshore cruisers or stable family boats.
