Owner's Comments

The Rival 36 is the last and perhaps the most complete of all the Peter Brett designed Rivals and some 78 were launched until the mid 1990’s. RIVAL MISCHIEF is a relatively late example from 1991 and benefits from both the shallower scheel keel option and the 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 probably the best example of a Rival 36 you will see thanks to her numerous recent upgrades and virtually all new systems. Her owner is a very experienced yachtsman, who insists on perfection as far as practically possible. Rival Mischief demonstrates this throughout, and no expense has been spared in preparing her for the elements.


RCD Status: As a yacht constructed and placed in use within EU waters before the 16th June 1998, it is our understanding that she is therefore exempt from the essential safety requirements of Directive 94/25EC (Recreational Craft Directive)


Scantlings 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 reported).
