Booking system
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated 
in agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting, 
where the bookings for the next year are confirmed.

Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up a couple
of places each year: after a year at the top of the list, the owner
then starts at the bottom, and after six years the cycle begins again.

Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) in
the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in the
remainder of the year.

By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year
begins. Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining
fourteen weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the
original chart, so having last choice originally does have its compensations.

These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the month before 
the month of the booking
Priority for school holidaysThree designated "special" shares have priority booking of school
holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than
"ordinary" shares thus reducing the other 9 shares contributions

General comments by vendor

Farndon is a private syndicate managed by Ownashare Cruising Ltd she is well maintained and has had a new gearbox 2017, she was taken out of the water this winter (2019) and had her hull shot blasted and epoxy coated.

We are currently refurbishing her with plans and funding for new flooring throughout.

Semi-Trad stern and a mid-gally layout

She is of good specification with an excellent galley featuring quartz worktops with inset stainless steel sink, full sized hob and under counter oven and grill.

Fridge with separate freezer, microwave and lots of storage and work surface.

The Dinette is "L" shaped and converts into a double bed at night

A solid fuel stove is also installed to complement the central heating and this had a new flue and hearth last winter.

The saloon has two single bed chairs and large bifold doors leading to a foredeck with ample seating.

The shower room has a quadrant shower, pumpout toilet and good sized vanity basin and unit.

The double bed converts to king sized at night with large storage drawers beneath. The wardrobe allows for all those clothes we seem to require!!

There is an ensuite toilet and basin from the main bedroom.
