Description

Designed by Peter Brett in the early 1970's the Rival 32 proved to be a very capable offshore cruising design with many going on to complete extended blue water cruising passages. In total around 200 hulls were constructed during the models production run. The class is still held in high regard by those looking for a dependable cruising yacht capable of reliable heavy weather sailing.

BELLEROPHON, named after one of Nelson's fleet in the Battle of Trafalgar benefits from upgrading during the current ownership. Upgrades include recently installed Beta B35 engine, re-wiring of the boat with new switch panels and Garmin plotter. For sale due to a bereavement she is offered with a comprehensive inventory and would make an ideal first boat. Lying ashore in North Argyll viewing is by prior appointment.
