The owners of Rivendell took over the boat from The Boatshare Company in 2005 and now have a full dedicated committee and engineer to look after the running of the boat.

General comments by vendor

We have enjoyed our time with Rivendell but old age means we must sell out two summer weeks. 

There are extra weeks that can but "bought" by owners wanting most time on board. These are the from the 21st Feb-7th March and 14th Nov-28th Nov. (dates approximate) They are offered on a "first come, first served" basis each year. 

The only additional thing you have to pay for on your week's boating is the diesel you use, gas (if a cylinder runs out) and the pump out cost of the toilet system at the end of the week.

Rivendell had a complete repaint winter 2019, new interior curtains and new cushions and covers.
