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 holidaysNo such scheme on this boat

General Comments About the Boat

A semi-traditional style rear deck, under which lies a Vetus M 4.17 engine and hydraulic PRM gearbox. Seating is provided on both sides of the rear deck area.

From the stern we enter the saloon, which along with the dinette is part of a spacious 24ft open plan living area.

From the two comfortable reclining “Captain’s” chairs, you can enjoy the entertainment centre with Freeview TV, DVD and DAB radio/CD connected to four speakers distributing sound throughout the boat.

A traditional solid fuel stove complements the Webasco diesel central heating system.

The boat features extensive storage throughout. There is an adult-sized ‘put you up’ bed.

Features L-shaped fully upholstered seating (which converts to a double bed at night). The table is removable with storage space provided when not in use. There is a side hatch opposite the dinette, and a full view of the TV from the seating area. Two stools/folding chairs are included to enable five people to dine comfortably.

Boasts a gas hob, eye level oven and grill, plus microwave and full-sized fridge with integral freezer compartment. Extensive storage and solid oak work surfaces.


Luxury bathroom, including a walk-in shower, fresh water flushing WC, hand basin and storage.

Includes a permanent double bed (this converts into a king size if required) TV point and lots of further storage space including a large wardrobe. Glazed double doors open to front deck with seating.


There are both 12- and 240-volt circuits, the latter being served by a Victron Phoenix 3-kilowatt charger/inverter which allows battery charging from a shore-based power supply. The boat carries five 110-amp leisure batteries and one starter battery, monitored by a digital Victron management.
