Booking system
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated
in agreed priority order during the autumn and before the
owners’ annual meeting in November, 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 time for winter maintenance, the remaining 14 weeks
are booked with priority in reverse order to the original chart,
so having last choice originally does have it's compensations.

Further weeks may be available but cannot be guarenteed. 
Priority for school holidaysA maximum of two shares may elect to take
a school holiday preference.

General Comments About the Boat

Soulbury has a semi traditional stern. Steps down into the boat lead into the rear galley and dinette area with hob, oven, full size sink and drainer, fridge with freezer compartment, solid fuel stove, side hatch and dinette which converts to a double bed.

Further along the boat is the bathroom with a shower over a corner bath, pump out toilet and hand basin. In the corridor by the bathroom is a Alde central heating boiler.

In the centre of the boat is a fixed double bed that extends to a full 5' king size. Storage is provided in the wardrobes, under-bed drawers and cubby holes.

Further forward is a second pump-out toilet (or extra storage area) and then into the front lounge area with flat screen TV/DVD combo.

This versatile space has two benches that can be used as single beds, or be converted into a large, 6' double. There are wide opening French windows which lead out to the cratch area with no change of floor level. This area also has a cratch cover so the space can be enjoyed, even in bad weather. 

Pictures of the boat

It should be noted that since these picturs were taken the boat has been re-painted.
The boat is the same colour but now no longer has the artwork on the side.

General comments by vendor

We've owned a share in Soulbury for approx 12 months and we thouroughly enjoyed our voyages aboard as did the rest of the family, inlcuding grandchildren. Sadly due to bereavement and ill health we are no longer able to enjoy our time on Soulbury and it is with great sadness we have to part with our share so soon as we had looked forward to many years of ownership.

The other owners are a friendly bunch who keep in contact and were quick to welcome us into the group.  Several owners have owned a share on Soulbury since she was launched. There is an annual meeting in September or October where we talk through the the arrangements for the following year. Everyone gets the chance to chip in and decisions are made on a majority vote.
