Waxwing - Rival 41

My yacht Waxwing is a Rival 41. She is a superb sea boat and a much sought-after yacht for long distance offshore sailing.
There are two versions, the centre cockpit and the aft cockpit, Waxwing is the aft cockpit version.
She is a cutter rig and an incredible yacht to sail. Waxwing has already proven herself by completing a 7-year circumnavigation by her previous owners.

There were 57 Rival 41s built.
