General comments by vendor
The boat has been well maintained throughout the 6 years we have had a share in it, including a complete professional repaint at Anderton Marina in February 2018 and a new diesel central heating system in 2019.
As a syndicate, we believe in funding a reserve account from our monthly subscription. The reserve is now over £10,000.
On selling our share, our contribution put in the reserve account simply hands over to the new owner. We anticipate having to renew the engine in approx. 3-4 years time; although we are told it could be longer, but the funds in the reserve account should be sufficient to fund that without having to contribute extra.
An owner, subsequently finding he/she is unable to take their allocated week, will notify the managing agents, who will then offer it by e-mail to the other owners. This more often occurs in the winter months.
Having been at Overwater for 3 years Black Watch has now moved to Blackwater Meadow Marina on the Llangollen Canal.
