He has also transformed the interior with attractive pine lined bulkheads, forica lined half bulkheads in the saloon and a refurbishment of the heads compartment which gives the boat a modern twist without losing the Rival DNA. The flooring is smart hard wearing laminate and the headlinings are dark hard wearing carpet with batten support.
