One of the last 290’s to be built before the design was refreshed and launched as the 306 with the same layout. A comfortable and well thought out cruising yacht with really good accomodation for her size. She is an easy boat to sail with her furling rig and twin keels makes her ideal for exploring some shallower cruising areas.“Rioja” appears to have been maintained to a good standard both cosmetically and mechanically. A nice boat.
