Shared Narrow Boat | Willoughby
|Type of scheme||Managed|
|Nominal number of sharers||12|
|Year of build||2001|
|Home mooring (2024)||Wigrams Turn Shuckburgh Rd, Southam CV47 8NL (From April 2024)|
|Engine Type (last known)||Beta Marine 43 (2015)|
|Berths||2 + 4|
|Change over day||Saturday|
|Are pets allowed||Yes|
|Is smoking allowed inside||No|
|Booking system||A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated.|
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), 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 holidays||A maximum of three owners may have "School Holiday"|
priority where they choose their weeks ahead of the others
but MUST align their weeks to school holidays.
These owners pay a premium of 25% on all the running costs
over and above the other owners for having this "special" option.
General Comments About the Boat
A Reeves-built 10/6/4mm steel construction vessel, fitted-out by Milburn Boats, with Betamarine 43bhp diesel engine. She has a semi-traditional stern and a mid galley and has been very well looked-after by her syndicate of owners.
Diesel central heating via new Webasto heater to radiators and a solid fuel stove. Water heating by diesel boiler and by engine (calorifier).
Inside steps to master bedroom (double bed extendable to king size, storage under), with Flat Screen TV, en-suite cloakroom and full-height wardrobe.
Fully lined curtains to all windows and blinds in kitchen and bathroom. Carpet tiles to all areas and vinyl flooring to bathroom. Light maple T&G timber and veneered panels. Willoughby is very light and airy with good use of recessed and spot lighting.
Starting from the stern and working forward:
Semi-traditional Helmsmans deck with seating area (storage lockers under - 2 gas bottles, mooring pins, windlasses etc) and engine under deck.
Inside steps to master bedroom (double bed extendable to king size, storage under), with en-suite cloakroom and full-height wardrobe.

Solid fuel stove and dividing curtain separating sleeping areas.
Flat screen TV with DVD/video player, Freeview receiver, radio/CD player (both TV and radio can be relayed to the master bedroom) and 2 chairs which convert to single beds (which can be placed together to make a larger bed).
The boat also has on-board wi-fi
Fully-opening double French doors which fold right back on themselves to open up the front deck (this is wonderful in hot weather) which has a seating area for four people with storage lockers under, small free-standing table, separate leatherette cushions for the seating area which are stored inside the boat. 100 gallon fresh water tank.
