East End Endeavour

East End Endeavour is a Rival 41C long-range cruising yacht with legendary status among skippers and crews alike. Since 1982, EEE has provided sail training courses and cruises for thousands of people.

Yacht East End Endeavour is a 41′ (12.5m) Bermudan-rigged sloop with central cockpit, designed by Peter Brett. She was originally fitted out as a sail training vessel in the late 1970s and is admittedly a wee bit less glamorous than some yachts, but she has style! Well-equipped and handling well in all weathers, East End Endeavour has won the respect and affection of all who have sailed on her. See About us > Testimonials for crew comments

Below decks, East End Endeavour has a functional galley (kitchen) and saloon with dining table seating eight people, and locker space for stowing provisions, maintenance gear and personal belongings. The chart table area is well equipped with nautical charts, electronic navigation tools, reference books and learning resources and radio/CD/mp3 player.

East End Endeavour can accommodate ten people (including skipper and mate) on day sails, and eight on overnight or longer cruises. There is a forward cabin with two berths, single quarter berth, a two-berth aft (rear) cabin for skipper and mate, while the saloon converts into up to six single berths – we prefer to use a maximum of four for your comfort and safety. The boat is also equipped with forward and aft heads (toilets), with a basic shower facility in the former, and an effective heating system for chillier weather.

East End Endeavour is built for safety and is fully equipped with life jackets, safety equipment, life raft, and tender with oars and outboard motor. All comply with the MCA (Maritime & Coastguard Agency) Code of Practice for the Safety of Small Commercial Sailing Vessels. As a certified sail training vessel, the yacht, equipment and operating procedures are all subject to stringent annual inspections by the MCA and RYA (Royal Yachting Association).

East End Endeavour and any other vessels used by Rival Sailing are fully insured against accidents and third party liability. However, responsibility is not accepted for personal accidents, damage or loss due to a participant’s negligence.
