General Comments About the Boat
Walking through the corridor, next there is separate bathroom with full size shower, basin and pump out wc.
The kitchen is next, recently re-done in solid oak and has full size cooker, fridge (with freezer compartment) and microwave. Here you can open side hatch.
Forward of kitchen, everything is open which gives illusion of space and a view out over the well deck through glazed doors.
The dining area, re-upholstered last year, along with all other soft furnishings, converts to double bed – with storage beneath. Plenty of room for 4, 6 if 2 are kids.
In front of the dining area is a large lounge with sofa and blow up bed for additional guests. This area can be separated with full length curtain. Again lots of solid oak storage. Here is TV/DVD and wood burning stove and double doors on to the deck.
Fresh water tank is mounted below the front deck and holds approximately 150 gallons. Gas locker for 2 x 13kg gas bottles and couple of seat lockers.
The boat is regularly maintained which includes refurbishment during winter months while not in use.
The heating system has recently been replaced (2015).
The boat carries the CE mark and complies with the Recreational Craft Directive which includes the Boat Safety Certificate.
Insulation spray polystyrene all external areas.
Lining : Ash T & G and /or oak faced panelling and hardwood trim.

General comments by vendor
We bought our share 3 years ago to sample share boating. We like it , we love this boat so are now wanting to sell our week to facilitate buying 2 from another owner.
From our home marina, we have enjoyed varied trips and most recently spent Christmas aboard cruising to Llangollen.
The boat is maintained to a high standard and has undergone substantial and continued improvements (thanks to our our chairman, a retired engineer and an enthusiastic boater); internally - oak kitchen, wardrobes, cupboards, upgraded shower/bathroom, flooring, upholstery and painting throughout living areas; Others - new engine (2017), diesel heating 2 years ago, calorifier and leisure batteries with full re-paint in plan/budgeted for.
We have taken internal video on our most recent trip if interested, please contact.
Additional non-allocated weeks are available at a nominal contribution of £50 so is possible to extend into non-allocated weeks if nobody else has got there first for limited cost. Other owners unable to take their own weeks are offered up within the group of owners via email as soon as this is known.
An AGM is held in December where owners get together to review previous cruising season and agree works to be carried out during that winter.
Lovely, smart, comfortable boat in a great location, 20 minutes from M6 and great bunch of like minded owners, backed by solid leadership.
