Booking systemA 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 September inclusive), and one week in
the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-three weeks are
 firmly booked before the year begins. 

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining seventeen
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 holidaysThere are no special shares (school holiday) at the moment
but if one was required the owners would be consulted to
arrange the added costs of this arrangement.

General Comments About the Boat

The fore deck is accessed via French style doors that hinge right back on themselves. There is seating on storage lockers with leatherette cushions and space for a fold up table kept within the boat.

Notes on monthly payments:-

Our treasurer calls for payments as and when required. The largest contributions are always at the start of each year when any winter refurbishments are paid for (By example the boat has a new toilet tank during the 2021/2 winter works). These payments have been made by us. Going forward there will be a request for funds from the owners perhaps once or twice during 2022 and as a general comparison this will equate to around £110 per month but may be called for in a three month tranche. 

Hatherton has a group of owners who have mostly been with her from the start. 

We each play a part in looking after her and have made sure that she has been improved over the years. She had a back to bare metal repaint in 2014, a complete change of soft furnishings and new sofa bed in 2016 and over the winter 2017/2018 has had a new Betamarine 43 BHP engine with new gear box and prop-shaft fitted as well as a new diesel fired boiler and new radiators.

There is no management charge as the boat is self-managed. 

All her lighting now has LEDs. You can see from the photos that she is well looked after and we are very proud of her
