General comments by vendor

We have enjoyed our time on this beautiful boat, and have felt very proud of her as we cruise the cut. We will be sad to say goodbye to her, but ill health sadly means we have to part ways. 

As a third share owner you will have four months every year aboard and there is always some flexibility with other owners if you wish to swap.

Phoenix No 1 is self managed by the three sharers.

NB. This boat is a no smoking boat and no pets are allowed on board.

Phoenix No 1 has been carefully looked after with paintwork in excellent condition.

The engine is a Yanmar 2200 and has always been serviced every 250 hours.

The water tank holds 150 gallons, the waste tank 75 gallons and the fuel tank 40 gallons.  

The boat is well maintained and all share holders are expected to participate in the running and keeping Phoenix No 1 in excellent condition that she is in today.

Complete set of new blue soft furnishings in saloon, new mattress and chairs.
