First launched in 1980 the Rival 36 was the last of the Rival designs to be drawn by Peter Brett, the man responsible for creating the Rival brand and its iconic reputation as a robust reliable cruiser. Originally built by Southern Boatbuilding Company before the the merging of the Rival and Bowman brands there was reportedly a total of 78 hulls produced in the class before production ceased in the mid 1990’s.
One of the later examples of the Rival 36 design RIVAL MISCHIEF was commissioned by a discerning owner and lavished with extras from the factory. She is a rare combination of options with the more versatile MkI interior combined with the shallower Scheel keel and wheel steering. With only her 5th owner since built she has had enjoyed continual maintenance and upgrading, maintaining her Lloyds 100A1 classification through until 2005. Reluctantly offered for sale she comes with a comprehensive inventory including highlights such as:

Gelshield coated underwater hull sections from new

Lying on a berth in Bridlington, East Yorkshire RIVAL MISCHIEF is available for viewing strictly by prior appointment.

RIVAL MISCHIEF was built to meet the requirement of Lloyds 100A1 classification and was retained in class until her last inspection in 2005. Retaining 100A1 compliance requires a stringent maintenance and inspection routine by Lloyds surveyors with all recommendations having to be completed within a set time frame.
