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. 

Of the six traditionally decorated doors, four have been retained as painted by renowned canal artist Ron Hough in 2008.

Other enhancements have been; -

- new soft furnishings (2019).
- newly fitted refurbished Alde boiler (2019) 
- new cratch cover (2018) 
- new Morso Squirrel solid fuel stove (2018) 
- weed hatch for the bow-thruster to enable maintenance whilst afloat 
- drinking water gauge 
- LED lighting throughout 
- smart battery management system 
- thermostatic anti-frost heating system for unoccupied weeks in the winter 
- sound-proofing to the engine space and a hospital silencer 
-Corian worktops and sinks fitted to the galley, bathroom basin unit and vanity unit in the bedroom (2022). 
-Bow thruster overhauled (2023) 
-Both toilet pump out tanks replaced with new (2023) 
-Hull survey carried out (2023) 
-new Pro-Cook pans (2023) 

The AGM is held each June and open discussion is welcomed. 

We agree on our finances, engineering and operational issues; and draw weeks for the coming year. Owners are given time at the AGM to swop weeks and most wishes are normally accommodated. We normally stay at a base for two or three years. 

Conqueror has circumnavigated the network since its launch and will continue to explore the canal network for the benefit of newer owners. 

Owners pay £120 per month by standing order (correct as of 2023). 

The only additional costs are diesel, coal and pump-outs when onboard (gas is paid from syndicate funds). 

All foreseeable running costs are included in the monthly charge which is reviewed annually at the AGM. 

The syndicate produce a quarterly newsletter and have its own YouTube channel linked here
