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 holidays Three designated "special" shares have priority booking of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than "ordinary" shares thus reducing the other 9 shares contributions

General Comments by vendor
 
Beautifully finished five star narrow boat built in 2008. In addition to the usual facilities there is gas central heating, solid fuel burner, TV/DVD in two rooms, extending double bed to a king size, granite work tops and leather seating pads. Exterior repainted this year (2015) by Willow Boat Painters in its new mid blue livery. Fitted with a Freeview TV and good quality radio /CD player. The boat benefits from bow thrusters with easy to use controls next to tiller. The lay out can sleep 6, fixed bed, converting dinette and sofa chairs that drop into occasional beds.
 
Very good storage space inside and out in this very comfortable narrow boat. Wood burner is an excellent source of heat and works wonders on crisp winter days on the water. This is ably supported by the central heating and heated towel rail.
 
Managed very well by Ownashare using a very transparent financial management system, so you see accounts regularly and know exactly what has been spent and when- very reassuring. Syndicate benefits from a very diligent chairman and the other syndicate members are genuinely nice people who really look after the vessel.

The boat is pet friendly and the marinas always offer a pet valet if you are concerned about leaving hairs on board!

Changeover day is on a Friday and there is always a representative on hand if there are any issues with the boat. An end of holiday report is completed each week and the management team put right any issues prior to the next people arriving.

Boat repainted in 2015
