General comments by vendor

Eos - the Greek Goddess of Dawn is a 54' semi-traditional narrowboat launched in 2011.  The boat had a repaint just two years ago , and the contigency fund is very healthy (over £6000 at the moment of posting )with no known major costs pending.

You get monthly statements of income and outgoings which are fully verified and a AGM to update on the future of the boat, it will probably be moving to another marina next year as it is voted on at the AGM.

The Eos owners are a friendly group who all communicate on a regular basis keeping each other updated with anything relating to the boat and the area in which we are cruising. 

The syndicate has an elected committee who liaise between the Management Company and owners.  We have an annual AGM each Autumn where anything relating to the boat is discussed and voted upon.  In the beginning of 2018 Eos has had a full re-paint & is now looking splendid.  The boat has a full inventory on board including a TV & DVD and microwave oven.  Eos has been well-designed with many cupboards for storage.

The Syndicate has elected to move Eos to a new base every 2-3 years. Having started at Alvechurch where we stayed for 3 years, we moved to Gayton & then Anderton for 2 years each & in 2019 Eos moved to Reedley Marina on the Leeds Liverpool canal.

Running costs are reviewed at each AGM. This cost includes all gas, coal, turnaround servicing charges & pump-outs (at Reedley) as well as insurance, mooring, licences, management fees etc. The only other costs incurred for cruising is fuel, loo pump-out and an end of holiday valet if you elect to ask the marina to do this for you. 

The Eos syndicate has a healthy bank balance, which is monitored and managed monthly
