Running costs for 2020

(How do these figures compare? 
Link opens new window)
Monthly contribution is £93 including the management charge

However, there is an annaul contribution of around £470 falling due around December to cover annual maintenance and any general ongoing refurbishments.

As of July 2020 the syndicate had a reserve fund balance £7,648 (income over expenditure) which is used to even out any peaks and troughs.

These figures have been around the same for the last three years. 
How are the running costs to be apportionedI would ask the incoming owner to take over the 
monthly contribution from purchase.

General comments by vendor

We have been owners for 14 years since ENDEAVOUR was launched and have greatly enjoyed all our weeks on the canals.

The other owners are a very pleasant and amenable group, whose friendship and contribution to the syndicate has been a significant part of our enjoyment in this lovely experience.

We have moved around the canal system and tend to move to a new base every 2/3 years as agreed by majority vote at Annual Meeting.

The boat layout works very well as a great compromise between space and comfort. There are a couple of Directors Chairs which can be placed on the Fore Deck, Rear Deck or on the bank when moored.

The boat inventory provides for most needs and inventory items are all that remains stored on board, but of course owners can bring other items for use during an allocated week
