|General comments about the boat|
The owners of Rivendell took over the boat from The Boatshare Company in 2005 and now have full dedicated committee and engineer to look after the running of the boat. The owners hold an annual meeting to discuss the boat and at the meeting the costs for the following year will be estimated. During the year owners are kept informed by email an newsletter.
Starting from the rear of
the boat is the semi-trad stern, which has two lockers for the storage
of equipment. Fitted seat covers are available for their use as seats.
Steps lead down into the main bedroom, which is equipped with a fixed
5ft extending double bed. There is ample storage space in two full
length cupboards, an over-bed cupboard, under-bed space, a dressing
table with cupboard below, plus shelving.

General Comments by vendor
Rivendell is managed by an elected
committee, with the result that annual costs are considerably lower
than those charged by managing companies. It is well maintained and
has been improved every winter.
As Rivendell is winterised and not used in the colder months likelihood of frost damage is minimised, and also the blacking is not damaged by " ice breaking".
Over the 2015/2016 winter the bottom has been blacked, the fireplace rebuilt and the water pump replaced. A new cooker was fitted in 2013. The gas boiler and shower cubicle were replaced shortly before I purchased my shares in 2012.
