and materials used in the construction of RIVAL MISCHIEF are to Lloyd’s Register approved drawings. From build
until January 2006, RIVAL MISCHIEF was also fully in class with Lloyd’s 100A1 which requires the yacht to be maintained
to an ‘as new’ standard and involves frequent detailed survey inspections. This 100A1 compliance has also necessitated
numerous upgrades over standard Rival Bowman specifications (Last classification survey carried out January 2005 with no faults

The Rival 36 is the last and perhaps the most
complete of all the Peter Brett designed Rivals and some 78 were launched between the 1980 launch and the final examples launching
in the mid 1990’s. RIVAL MISCHIEF is a relatively late example from 1991 and benefits from both the scheel keel option
and the slightly more versatile mkI interior layout. Kept in class at Lloyd’s 100A1 from launch until her final inspection
in January 2005, there can be no finer demonstration of her excellent condition than this. The Lloyd’s inspections are
arguably more in-depth than a pre-purchase survey and to stay in class, all recommendation must be followed. RIVAL MISCHIEF
is one of the best sorted Rival 36’s you will see thanks to her numerous upgrades and updates in perhaps more comparable
with a +/-1995 example.
