General Comments About the Boat
Built by Alexander Boat builders (10/6/4 steel plate), with a Blue Haven Marine fit-out and traditionally decorated by the famous canal artist, Ron Hough.
Entering from the semi-traditional stern (with cushioned seating) there is a fixed one-poster bed and a Corian vanity unit, with mirror, in the master cabin. An over-bed unit contains a radio and reading lights. Alongside is a large double wardrobe. There is also good storage under the bed.
An en-suite toilet compartment is adjoining, followed by a door to separate the sleeping compartments up at night.
Beyond this door is a further shelved wardrobe, followed by the main bathroom containing a second WC, Corian vanity unit and thermostatic shower.
Next is the ‘Hough’ decorated side-doors and galley with eye-level gas double-oven, four-burner hob, sink, cupboards, worktops and microwave.
A lift-up flap creates additional worktop space and a serving area for dining.
The kitchen worktops and sink have all recently been refitted out in Corian.
The galley is also equipped with quality cooking equipment and utensils.
On from this is the dining area which can seat six and converts into a double bed.
Next is the lounge where the settee converts into another double bed. The two doubles are separated by a curtain. A solid-fuel Morso stove is in the forward corner of the cabin and a flat-screen TV, radio and DVD player are within the unit opposite. Behind this unit is a third hanging wardrobe.
The bow cratch contains the anchor, water hoses, teak garden chairs, etc and has removable triangle boards for forward-facing windows.
The whole cratch area has a removable zipped cover for security and weather protection.
A square table can be installed in the centre of the well deck for al fresco dining. In the bow locker are the gas bottles for central heating, hot water and cooking.
The boat has full central heating (radiators) and a powerful inverter provides mains power to 240V sockets throughout the boat.

General comments by vendor
The syndicate works well together and we have been efficiently self-managed since 2014.
A committee of four owners ensure day-to-day running of the boat and owners are invited to take on other voluntary roles.
A Syndicate Agreement sets out owner's responsibilities and a comprehensive Owner's Manual describes every aspect of boat operation. There is an expectation that new owners will have some boating experience.
After a trip, owners are expected to perform simple maintenance tasks and cleaning but the owner can pay the marina valet services.
Winter maintenance and repairs are contracted-out and included in the monthly payment.
Many improvements have been made over the years.
A second complete external re-paint was completed in March 2018 by Oxon Boat Painters and she gets many compliments.
