Rival Bowman 40 - 1988:
Presented to the market in great overall condition and with one owner form new, this Lloyds catgory A1 unlimited blue water cruiser has been well cared for and loved by her family owners. With her Scheel style fin keel she has the sea faring capabilites of boat with a keel depth and length far in excess of her modest 1.5 meters, and carries her 8 passengers in comfort over extreme distances.
Wintered ashore each year she has had any necessary work carried out and has received many upgrades over her original specification. Varnish work could be renewed for coming season by new owners. Complete with a full new Raymarine Axiom electronics package in 2018, she comes fully kitted out and is ready for her new owners to take her Bluewater Cruising.
