General Comments About the Boat


Kindred Spirit has a traditional rear deck with a wide hatch that allows for a little company for the helmsman and the ability to ascend the rear steps with a cup of Tea in either hand.

The engine is fully covered by a demountable timber rear deck which extends to 6 feet and could accommodate a couple of children sleeping on blow-up mattresses.

Moving forward there is a fixed double bed in the main cabin with storage drawers under, a bookshelf above the bed and a wardrobe positioned between the cabin and the engine room.

Moving forward again there is a walk-through bathroom with double shower, hand basin and Thetford cassette toilet.

Moving forward again there is the galley which has worktops both sides and is equipped with gas cooker & oven, microwave (powered by a 2.8KW Inverter), and 12V fridge. By lowering the worktops below the gun-whales and installing minimum widths it has been possible to create sufficient space for two persons to pass each other while working in the galley.

A Multi-Fuel stove just forward marks the front end of the galley and the beginning of the saloon area.

This area has the stove in one corner and three cupboards in the remaining three corners.

There are two folding chairs at either end of a double bed-settee which faces onto a wall-mounted smart TV and a gate-leg dining table.

The front doors of the saloon open out onto a spacious front deck where there is a hatch to the forward gas locker where the anchor and boat cleaning equipment is also kept.

General comments by vendor

Share holders may book as many available weeks as they may choose on the Booking Calendar. They may also claim available weeks as a regular annual booking. 

At the time of writing all dates are available except School Easter, Half Term and Summer Holidays

All Licences, Insurances and Maintenance Costs are to be borne by the Principal Shareholder, These costs will be met by the weekly booking fees paid by shareholders. As such it is intended to take sufficient bookings that will allow the scheme to operate on a not-for-profit basis.

For 2021 a weekly booking fee of £500.00 will entitle a shareholder to one available week April to Sept and one available week Oct to March free of charge if they remain in the Syndicate and book at least one week the following Summer.

Those wishing to leave the Syndicate should indicate this before the end of the Summer Season. They may only sell their shares back to the Principal Shareholder who will refund their share purchase price in full.


Retirement to France means that I will no longer need to keep Kindred Spirit as a permanent base in the UK. For sentimental reasons I would like to maintain access to the boat when I visit the UK and this scheme is intended to allow me to do that by allowing others to enjoy her while I am away. The Scheme is designed to generate sufficient income to ensure that she can be well maintained by local craftsmen and that she is not a financial burden to me in retirement.

There are no frills with this scheme it is open to those who have or wish to gain enough boating experience to look after the boat and keep her in as good a shape as we can.

Owners to bring own bedding etc.

The boat is insured by Collidge and Partners who only require me to advise details of new Shareholders when they join or leave the Syndicate. 

Both Collidge & Partners & The Licencing Section of the Canal & River Trust have reviewed my shared ownership contract and are happy that my exisiting insurance and licence are valid under these contracts. 


To Summerise (Comments By Boatshare): You buy in a £500 and can book, subject to availability, as many weeks as you wish at a usage charge of £500 per week on board. You are responsible for everything on the boat and leaving it at the mooring at Sowerby Bridge (unless otherwise agreed) in a clean and tidy condition ready for the next owner with tanks full of water and an empty toilet. 

All Licences, Insurance, Depreciation and Maintenance Costs will be borne by the Principal Shareholder. 

If you no longer wish to be an owner on the boat you advise the "Principal Shareholder" and your £500 will be refunded to you.
