|General comments about the boat|
The front deck has seating with storage beneath. Here, at the bow, the gas bottles are stored in a locker with easy access to the water tank filler.
From the front deck the light, airy, roomy cabin is entered through double doors. Here is a coal burning stove, comfortable seats and the dinette converts to extra double sleeping accommodation.
From here is easy access to the galley, fitted with an electric fridge and cooker plus a very useful double-door side hatch.
Continuing towards the stern of the boat is a fixed double bed, with good cupboard storage above and below, followed by a wardrobe, then a door into the flushing toilet and shower room.
Before the steps leading up to the stern deck is the rear bedroom with four fitted bunks, which can convert into a double bed.
The semi-trad stern is fitted with seating for four people plus a couple of seats for the helmsmen by the tiller.
The boat also has gas central heating as well as a coal fire.

General Comments by vendor
Perfect boat for a family with children. Bunks at back can accommodate up to 5 including 2 adults. We have had 9 on board although space for luggage etc is a little stretched. With fewer on board the boat is spacious. Would also be perfect for those wanting 5 weeks in the school holidays this year. Whilst school holiday weeks are not guaranteed we have always managed at least 4 and usually more as most members of the group do not require them. The weeks allocation has always been negotiable.
Price would be negotiable if prospective buyers are unable to take all or some of the five weeks this summer (2017). There is a healthy balance in the bank account for the boat at the time this advert was placed and so unforeseen spikes in the running costs per month are not envisaged.
Schipperke has been well maintained and constantly updated. The base at Kings Bromley is pleasant and well situated in the centre of the system giving many options for short or extended cruising.
