Booking system
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in 
agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting, 
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 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. 
These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the month 
before the month of the booking.
Priority for school holidaysSome shares are 'premium' or school holiday shares,
which have priority over the remaining owners' bookings.

General Comments About the Boat

Starting from the semi trad stern, you drop down into a rear bedroom with a fixed single berth and bunk above. The single berth will pull out to a double. There is a rear loo and shower aft beside the offset steps down from rear deck.

The main bedroom has a fixed double and is forward of the rear cabin through a door access. The bed has reading lights and under berth storage. Hanging wardrobe is adjacent to the main bedroom.

The main bathroom is located just forward of the fixed double bedroom, with vanity unit with storage, loo and shower. 

Moving forward there is an open plan kitchen/galley and dinning/lounge area that can comfortably seat six with side doors in the galley area. At the stern end of the lounge is small solid fuel stove that is very efficient at heating the living area on a cold evening. The long bench seat converts to a further single/double if required.

Double doors from lounge area onto good sized foredeck. 

Additional features include:-
- Inverter for 240 electrical items.
- Full central heating with hot water from the engine and or diesel boiler.
- Galley with gas cooker and four ring hob, plus 12v fridge with freezer compartment. 
- Microwave operating off the inverter.
- 240 volt sockets in several locations for vacuum cleaner, which operate from the inverter.
- Flat screen TV

General comments by vendor

Sojourn is a very unusual shared option sleeping up to seven if required in a 58' boat. 

Two bunks at the rear (or double with bunk over) with en-suite loo and forward of this a fixed double with access to the bathroom mean overnight two groups can share without having to interrupt each other. 

This layout was actually the fore runner of the OwnerShip "Rear Galley" style boat and offers similar options to that layout but with the main saloon/galley forward.
