|General comments about the boat|
Pineapple was built in 2001 to personal specifications and had one owner until 2005. She is a very comfortable boat and comes fully furnished, including a very efficient wood/coal stove, diesel powered central heating, a generator, shore power socket and inverter. She was repainted 2008 and re-blacked 2011.
The lounge area seating has space for five and the sofa easily converts into a double bed once the dining table is stowed away. The lounge also has a ‘Carabo’ stove, CD player and mains lighting.
The kitchen is fully equipped with a 12v fridge, LPG cooker with 4 burner hob, grill and oven, stainless steel sink and a full inventory of crockery and utensils. The kitchen also has side doors for extra light.
The bathroom has a hip bath/shower unit, hand basin and chemical toilet.
The aft cabin has 2 single berths that can be made into a double bed. There is also a wardrobe, an airing cupboard and reading lights.
There is also a covered cratch area.

General Comments by vendor
This share has only become available due to life changes of the sharers involved and they remain as a sharer but on a reduced share ownership.
Most of our sharers have been involved with Pineapple for over 10 years and I have owned the boat since she was built 15 years ago.
Many of the sharers are retired and we also now have young families due to Grandchildren.
The boat accommodates all the generations and in all the seasons as we have a multi fuel stove for those winter days.
Some sharers are actively involved in maintenance work but others just have holidays .... we are happy for future sharers to join our family and join in as much as they can to enjoy NB Pineapple for future years to come. We are selling an 8th share but would consider 2 x 16th
We have an account that this is paid in to each month and the current owner continues to pay this contribution until share is sold.
We hold 2 management meetings per year usually in Oct/Nov and March/April.
We have a kitty on the boat for sundries/ gas which is currently £10 a week.We have a system on boat and kitty for collecting and purchasing diesel for propulsion and heating.
