General Comments About the Boat

Starting at the Semi-Trad stern, there is a fixed bench housing 2 gas bottles together with windlasses, mooring pins etc.

Continue forward down steps into the cabin with fixed double bed which can be extended to king size if required. pillows, two double and two single duvets are provided and regularly replaced. The bed has two large drawers under it and a large shelf & locker cupboard is over it.

The cabin also offers a wardrobe and a small en-suite WC/Shower cubicle with small hand basin. It also provides hanging space for wet coats etc.

A door can close this cabin off from the rest of the boat. In the day time this door closes off the gas central heating boiler from the corridor beyond.

There are radiators throughout the interior, in the cabin, bathroom, dinette area and lounge.

Beyond the boiler is the door to the bathroom with a corner bath with shower over, raised pump-out WC, full sized hand basin with storage cupboard under and access to warm cupboard behind the boiler.

Next, and towards the front, is the fully equipped and stocked U-shaped galley-kitchen with large opening side-hatch, full size oven and 4 ring gas hob, microwave, full size under counter fridge, sink/draining board, drawer, shelves and cupboard.

Separating the galley from the dinette, there is a suspended glazed cupboard for all the glasses & crockery. The L-shaped dinette converts to a double bed, with a small overhead shelf & has drawer and storage space under. This area is open to, but can be separated from the lounge by full length curtains.

The lounge has a wardrobe and two drawer unit opposite a multi-fuel stove, two large arm chair/beds and a small folding table, stools, corner LCD  TV/DVD player and radio.

There are glazed full height bi-folding doors which open to the bow deck, with built in locker benches storing water hose, solid fuel, tools etc. The prow of the boat housed the clean water storage tank.

Sandpiper is a former OwnerShips' boat which elected to self manage in 2008. WE are a friendly group of owners based generally around the UK and one owner from Australia. Shareholders volunteer where they can with particular aspects of running the boat to help keep Sandpiper in good shape and reduced costs.

Sandpiper is fully owned by the 12 equal shares and is self managed mainly by email and an AGM held near to the home mooring in October.

New engine, gearbox & stern tube in August 2011
