1990 Rival 36

Beaulieu, Hampshire


Hands Off is a Scheel-keeled version of the excellent Rival 36 blue-water cruising boat, beautifully and properly built to Lloyds 100A1. She is set-up for Mediterranean cruising with her walk-through pushpit and pulpit, complete with passarelle ( ideal for bow or stern-to mooring ) and full-size sun-awning. Lightly used main and Genoa ( 2012 ), standing and running rigging renewed at the same time, teak decks refurbished and re-caulked professionally. Life-raft. Engine serviced annually. New fuel-polishing system installed. New batteries. A lovely boat. Grab her before her owner retires and changes his mind!
