Booking system
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated
in agreed priority order during the autumn and before the
owners’ annual meeting in November, 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

A well-maintained and airy boat, well equipped and proudly maintained by the syndicate.  Decisions are made at a friendly AGM or, in between, by email consensus.  The management company provides a reliable turnaround engineer and responds promptly to faults. 

Following three years on the Trent & Mersey, the syndicate has agreed to move to Calcutt Marina at the start of 2019, to be close to the centre of the network with a good many cruising route options. 

We have enjoyed the boatshare experience and have no complaints about the boat, its management or operation.  We are selling purely to move onto our own boat.
