General Comments About the Boat

It is a 55ft Semi-trad with a new engine fitted in January 2017. 240v AC is provided by an inverter or land-line hook up.

There is a flexible layout for day use and for sleeping six or even seven including children. The fixed double is 5ft wide and extends across the boat to 6ft 6in length. A double bed is converted from the dinette and the forward bench seats convert to two single beds or a king sized bed that accommodates two adults or three children.

The layout comprises the fixed double bed at the stern together with full-height cupboard, then the bathroom has a shower over the bath, a basin with cupboard underneath and mirror above, and a pump out toilet.

Further forward, the dining area has a pullman dinette with a large table. It seats four with storage beneath and is raised up so you can see out. Next the galley has a gas cooker with four-ring hob, oven and grill, microwave, electric toaster, fridge/freezer and cupboards.

There is a comprehensive inventory with enough crockery for six and the galley has hatch opening doors opposite the sink unit to enjoy the outside views.

There is a Freeview TV with DVD player and Morso wood-burning stove in the lounge area together with two long bench seats which have storage underneath. Two small tables can be fitted in this area to play card games, eat meals or just place tea or coffee cups.
Double and single duvets and pillows for six people are kept on board and regularly changed.

Heating is by wood-burning stove or Alde gas C/H boiler, which heats the radiators and hot water. The engine also heats the water via a calorifier. Smoke and gas alarms are fitted, also fire blanket and extinguisher.

General comments by vendor

Unfortunately we have to reluctantly sell because of family illness.

This is a well-run private share scheme where work on the boat has been carried out over the years as required. New owners can be as involved as much or as little as they wish.

An Owners Meeting is held in October where everyone has an opportunity to meet other owners and contribute towards decisions made about the Teal.

The location at Wigram's Turn marina allows easy access to a number of different cruising routes.

The Teal is regularly serviced and there are regular improvements to furnishings and equipment. The carpets and upholstery were recently replaced and a new 240v fridge/freezer has been installed. A full repaint is arranged for the winter 2018/19. All these items are paid for out of the monthly subscriptions.
