Booking systemA booking chart for the following calendar year is
circulated in agreed priority order before the owners’
annual meeting, 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.
Priority for school holidaysThree owners have priority selections for school holidays.

General Comments About the Boat

Starting from the semi trad stern, you drop down into a rear bedroom with a fixed single berth and bunk above. The single berth will pull out to a double. There is a rear loo and shower aft beside the offset steps down from rear deck.

The main bedroom has a fixed double and is forward of the rear cabin through a door access. The bed has reading lights and under berth storage. Hanging wardrobe is adjacent to the main bedroom.

The main bathroom is located just forward of the fixed double bedroom, with vanity unit with storage, loo and shower over a hip bath. 

Moving forward there is an open plan kitchen/galley and dinning/lounge area that can comfortably seat six with side doors in the galley area. At the bow end of the lounge is small solid fuel stove that is very efficient at heating the living area on a cold evening. The long bench seat shown in the photos converts to a further single with a hidden Z bed being set up alongside for the 7th berth if required.

Double doors from lounge area onto good sized foredeck. 

Additional features include:-
- Inverter for 240 electrical items.
- Full central heating with hot water from the engine and or Alde boiler.
- Galley with recent gas cooker and four ring hob, plus brand new fridge. 
- Microwave operating off the inverter.
- 240 volt sockets in several locations for vacuum cleaner, which operate from the inverter.
- Radio/CD player.
- Flat screen TV with DVD player.

General comments by vendor

SOLACE is an Ex- Ownerships boat and has been well maintained since it was first built. We have been owners of SOLACE for the last 22 years. 

Solace is self managed by a group of owners, a number of whom are enthusiasts with many skills and therefore take a personal interest in the running and maintenance of the boat.

As an owner you do not have to involve yourself with running the boat only be a responsible owner when cruising as she is jointly owned and gives a lot of pleasure to all her owners. The object is to operate a tidy and reliable narrow boat to allow you to fully enjoy your weeks on the cut.

She is a real home from home, and treated and respected as such by all her present owners.
