Booking System
A rota system in which each owner chooses three weeks per year: two between April and September inclusive, and one from any other month. The list of owners rotates in pairs each year giving everyone a chance to choose their weeks first or second over a six year period.

The boat has maintenance every winter and will be unavailable for several weeks during this time but all other weeks are available as extras, priority being given to those at the bottom of the list.
Priority for school holidays A maximum of three sharers can have "special" status, giving priority booking for school holidays.  They pay a 25 per cent premium on the running costs.

General Comments by vendor

 We have very much enjoyed our many holidays at all times of the year on this comfortable and well-maintained boat. Syndicate members come from all parts of England and several have owned their share since Debdale was launched. In ten years of our involvement we have found being part of this friendly and caring syndicate a pleasure.

As a self-managed boat email is used for keeping in touch, with documents posted to the owners' secure section of the Debdale website. An AGM is held where all aspects of management and future planning are discussed face-to-face. Recent domestic improvements include a new sofabed in the saloon with new upholstery at the dinette to match, two new widescreen Avtech TVs with built-in DVD players plus built-in Freesat, also new microwave, as well as regular replacement of domestic items such as duvets and pillows.

Debdale is currently based with Shire Cruisers at Sowerby Bridge, who look after us wonderfully while Debdale explores the northern canals. In September 2017 Debdale will leave Sowerby Bridge to go to Stockton for her repaint. Owners are discussing where the boat will be based afterwards.
