What is the history?

Posted: 3 Aug 2010 - By:
I am relatively new to Rival owning but one of the things that I have noticed is that visitors always seem to ask: 'Was this one built by so & so yard?' Fortunately the plate aft of the cockpit of my R36 gives me the answer.
I have read the bit of history on this site but what is the full story? How many manifestations of Rival have their been and why? After 50 years of yachting and 40 of boat owning I am of course aware of the financial fragility of the industry but Rival Yachts and its various other titles seems to be one of the more complex.
Anybody know the full story?
