General Comments by vendor
 
(RUNNING COSTS are £75.00 per month paid by standing order. The Treasurer may also request additional payments when heavy expenditure occurs, i.e. bottom blacking, repaints etc. Gas and coal included in running cost. Each shareholder pays for diesel and pump-outs on return.)

This is a quality build boat by S M Hudson with final fit out by Blue Haven Marine which has been well cared for and particularly so by owners since set up of the private syndicate in Jan 2008.

We are looking for new owners of similar enthusiasm and interest in this classical tug style narrow boat which must be unique in the shared ownership market.

Ownership does involve commitment to day to day care and weekly simple maintenance, refuelling, pump out, gas bottle exchange, coal supply, external washing and brass polishing together with thorough internal cleaning before handover to next owner.

The reward is a boat which is much admired in public and in which you will be very proud to be an owner.
