Booking system
At the AGM, each shareholder takes a turn to choose, initially,
two weeks of their five week allocation, for the forthcoming calendar year. 

The order of choosing is then reversed, and a single week is then chosen
until all five weeks have been allocated.

The shareholder at the top of the list is then placed
at the bottom for the next AGM, and each shareholder moves up one place.

One shareholder manages the bookings and if, during the year,
allocated weeks cannot be taken, they are offered to other shares to book.
Priority for school holidaysNo such scheme on this boat

General Comments About the Boat

A collapsible table, stored within an inside cupboard, is also available, which attaches to the front bulkhead.

From the front deck the light, airy, roomy cabin is entered through double doors. There is a coal burning stove.

There are comfortable seats, with storage underneath, and the L shaped dinette converts to extra double sleeping accommodation.
 From here is easy access to the galley fitted with an electric fridge and gas cooker, plus a very useful double door side hatch.

Continuing towards the stern of the boat is a fixed double bed with good storage above and below, followed by a wardrobe, then a door into the shower room including flushing toilet. The shower area and wash basin has recently been re-furbished.

Before the steps leading up to the stern deck is the rear bedroom with four fitted bunks, the lower two of which can be converted into a double bed. 

The semi -trad stern is fitted with seating complete with suitable cushions with four people plus a couple of seats for the helmsmen at the tiller.

The existing central heating gas boiler is to be replaced by a diesel boiler, which will have much lower running costs.

The superstructure is planned to be repainted during 2020.

General comments by vendor

Perfect boat for a family with children. Bunks at the back can accommodate up to 5 occupants. We have had 9 on board although space for luggage is a little stretched. With fewer on board the boat is spacious.

Whilst school holiday weeks are not guaranteed, most members of the group do not require them. The weeks allocation has always been negotiable.

There is a healthy balance in the bank account for the boat at the time this advert was placed, and so unforeseen spikes in running costs per month are not envisaged.

Schipperke has been well maintained and constantly updated.  The base at Kings Bromley is extremely pleasant, and well situated in the centre of the system giving many options for short or extended cruising.
