General comments by vendor

Eos, named after the Greek Goddess of the Dawn, is a very comfortable and enjoyable boat, and we regularly get compliments from passers by.

Currently moored at King's Bromley, this a great location for a wide range of cruising trips in any season. The 4 Counties Ring, the Cheshire Ring, The Warwickshire Ring, the Black Country Ring, the Stourport Ring are readily available 2 week cruising rings. Birmingham, Stratford on Avon, Coventry, Oxford, Worcester, are also readily reached either as part of a ring or on a "there and back again" cruise.

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

The syndicate has an elected committee (Chairman & Treasurer) who liaise with the management company (BCBM) and the other owners.

We have an annual general meeting in the autumn (held by Zoom in recent years) where everything is discussed and agreed for the following year.

She has a full inventory aboard including 30" screen TV and DVD, a wood burning stove, microwave, gas cooker and fridge with freezer compartment.

The syndicate has chosen to move Eos to a new base every 2-3 years. So far she has been based at Alvechurch, Gayton, Anderton, Reedley and now Kings Bromley until April 2024.

Running costs are reviewed annually at the AGM. The cost includes all gas, coal, turnaround servicing, insurance, mooring charges, licences and management fees. All you pay for is for your diesel and pump-out.

The syndicate has a healthy bank balance with a reserve fund to cover large expenditure, such as the new engine in 2021, and to ensure Eos is well maintained, new anodes fitted and 2 pack blacking in January 2022.
