Broker Comments

'Minalto' is quite simply put, a very attractive, well kept example of the classic superbly built Rival 36 sailing yacht. She offers huge amounts of storage with ample space to accommodate up to four or five persons for extended trips away. All lines led aft to her spacious cockpit, wheel steering, this well proven sea boat will keep all safe and comfortable. Recent standing rigging and modern day navigation equipment means this boat is kept up to date and ready for many more sailing adventures.
