"Rumbleflurg" (ex-Erivale) has been one of the front running 40fters for the last 5+ years in the UK and is without question, very well prepared for future owners.
Decent investment in the boat from the last two owners has kept the boat on the front foot and with top results in both Performance 40 racing inshore and RORC events offshore, she is highly capable boat with much to offer.
