General comments by vendor

Ref bookings: 
Option to buy an out of season week for £150 before 4th March and after October 27th, depending on the winter maintenance schedule.

The annual subscription fee (currently £330) covers all maintenance and enhancements ; it also includes one gas bottle replacement if required during your week. The only additional costs would be for fuel that you use and pump-outs.

Rivendell is an extremely well run boat with a very healthy bank balance. There are extra weeks that can be "bought" by owners wanting more time on board. These are feb/mar before the first official weeks and mid-end of November after the official cruising season; they are offered on a "first come" basis at £150/week at the moment.

Rivendell enjoyed a complete re-paint at the end of 2020 and an almost entire upholstery refit in 2022.
