Exclamation Rival 34?

I have been pretty set on a Pacific Seacraft 34 but always look around. I found this Rival 34 for sale where I live, haven't seen it yet but curiosly the numbers between these two boats work out about the same. It's a little older than I wanted, but the price is great! Looking to buy in the next few months. I can't find much info on the Rival, anything you guys could provide would be great. I know they're built on the other side of the pond to Loyds, and they where raced quite a bit in the 70's and 80's but that's about it. Any help?

I have a Rival 32. The main difference between the two is that the counter was extended to make the 34. Friends of mine have a 34, it is a fast and sturdy offshore cruiser. It has been to South America and back (Newfoundland and Labrador Canada). It is exceptional in heavy weather. For a complete history on the Rival line of boats, specifications, etc. go to the Rival Owners Association web site. There you will get all the info rmation you will need. http://www.rivalowners.org.uk/general/front.htm
As well you can see photos and brochures of the entire Rival line.
