The owners of Rivendell took over the boat from The Boatshare Company in 2005 and now have a full dedicated committee and engineer to look after the running of the boat. The owners hold an annual meeting to discuss the boat and at the meeting the costs for the following year will be estimated. During the year owners are kept informed by email.

She is a comfortable boat with a fixed 5ft extending double in the rear cabin there is a double in the dinette and the two chairs in the front cabin are convertible into single beds.

There is a washroom with a pump out toilet a wash basin and a full size shower cubicle with a domestic hinged door.

General comments by vendor

The share value for week 25 when new was £2,625 and week 26 £2,645.

The only additional thing you have to pay for on your week's boating in 2019 is the diesel you use, gas (if a cylinder runs out) and the pump out cost of the toilet system at the end of the week.

The owners normally decide at the Annual meeting  to move Rivendell around the UK canal network once every 3 years. 2019 will be the second season that the boat is moored at Alvechurch.
