Boat Bank Account

The bank account for the boat has built up a healthy reserve fund of around £7,000. As an owner coming in you would, if effect, become the owner of 10% of this fund. Whilst you would not realistically be able to draw this down it does mean that going forward any spikes in expenditure should be covered and your contribution of £60 per month should not change. 

We are one of the (currently two) owners who have been with Stella since she was launched 27 years ago. 

Three others have had a share for 15 years or more and we all communicate regularly by email. 

There is a meeting of all owners every autumn to make decisions on winter works, future moorings, running costs etc. 

Apart from the £60 per month, the only other costs at the end of each trip are fuel, pumpout and a contribution towards gas. 

What we originally paid for our share has been one of the best investments we've ever made. Stella's a lovely boat with a real 'family' feel and we'll miss her deeply.
