General Comments About the Boat

Celtic Kiwi is a smart 58ft semi-trad narrow boat launched in 2003.

She is well laid-out for two to six people with plenty of living space. 
The bedroom has a double bed extendable to 5ft width; 

The bathroom a flush toilet, hand basin and shower; 

The kitchen a double oven, microwave, 4-ring gas hob and electric fridge.  

The dining area has a raised dinette which converts to a double bed, with storage below the seats. Forward of this is a sitting area with more cupboards, two bench seats (which convert to single beds) and a multi-fuel stove.  For entertainment we have a Freeview enabled TV and a DVD/CD player as well as a DAB radio.
CK has a Eberspacher powered (fitted 2014) central heating system with hot water radiators throughout the cabins. LED lighting has recently been installed throughout.
A full set of equipment for canal and non-tidal river cruising is on board, including a heavy duty anchor, chains and warps for rivers and tidal sections. 

We carry a full selection of mechanical spares on board, a full set of Nicholson canal guides, and cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery are provided. 

Quilts, pillows etc. to make up all six berths are included, but linen (sheets, pillowcases, towels etc.) must be provided by the using owner.

General comments by vendor

The other members are all lovely and all enjoy looking after the boat, doing bits of maintenance to ensure that she is kept in excellent condition.

There is a facebook group for all of the owners and members regularly share news and images of their stays on the boat for all to enjoy.

Celtic Kiwi was originally commissioned by the Boatshare Company, and the owners converted to private management in September 2005. We don’t employ a boat management company.

We elect a 5 person owner-management team of Chair, Secretary, Treasurer, Boat Manager & Assistant Boat Manager at each AGM (usually held in September), where we also set the plans for the year ahead. If other decisions are required during the year, the Boat Manager will circulate the owners who discuss and decide the matter by email.

All owners follow regular guidelines (as with all narrow boats) and there is an agreed changeover procedure to ensure that we all find the boat in good condition. Owners can hand over at Springwood or (by arrangement) anywhere in the country.

The operating equipment is all working reliably and is well maintained, and we hold a sinking fund to avoid unpleasant surprises.
