Rival 34

£ 22,500

Built in 1978 at Southern Boat builders in Woolston, Southampton, Comet is a standard draught version of the Rival 34, drawing just 4’8″ (1.40 metres) with an encapsulated keel and skeg hung rudder.
The owners purchased Comet on the 12th November 2013 and since then have invested a considerable amount of time and money to improve the yacht to its current condition. Updates include a new engine, replacement of all standing rigging new instruments, installing fridge, new cooker, pressurised hot and cold water, new electrics, sails, and much more detailed below.
Located in Thessoloniki, Greece, this is a great opportunity to get aboard a yacht to cruise the Med with easy flight connections to the UK.

Owners Comments
Comet is a head turner, everywhere we go others comment on how beautiful a yacht she is,
with distinctive and stylish lines. She sails well, pointing to windward easily and is a dry boat
even on fresh days. In a blow she feels safe and secure, with a steady motion and no
slamming. All sails are easily handled with roller reefing on the genoa and slab reefing on
the main sail.
Comet has all the services considered normal on a new boat but very unusual on a boat of
this vintage and is very comfortable to stay onboard even for long periods.
We are changing boats as we want a larger boat to live aboard and entertain family whilst
going further on into the blue water.
