Reason for selling As one of the original shareholders We returned to Silver Steel about 3 years ago, and are again thoroughly enjoying boating in France.

General Comments by vendor
 
As Silver Steel is located in Auxerre France (and as part of the syndicate rules) the shareholder must have an ICC (International Certificate for Operators of Pleasure Craft) or equivalent. For UK residents, this can be obtained from the RYA.

Silver Steel is a very comfortable river cruiser, and has been regularly well maintained by the syndicate e.g. recent rear en-suite/WC overhaul.

The blown air heating system keeps her warm during cold periods, and there are mains heaters on board which can be used when connected to a shore supply.

Maintenance is undertaken by the boatyard as directed by the BCBM who manage the boat.

The engine is more than adequate for the rivers and canals, being perfectly capable for pushing against strong streams.

The bow-thruster makes for easy handling in close confines. The outside seating and steering position is delightful when underway, and while moored. The inside steering position is a boon when it rains!

The boat has sealed maintenance-free batteries, so there is no need for any topping up.

Silver steel had a complete repaint and bottom paint during the winter of 2012-2013.

The base mooring is beautifully situated opposite the spectacular town of Auxerre, is 5 mins walk from a large supermarket, and many restaurants are just over the bridge in the old town.

Travel is about six hours from the Channel by motorway, or travel by Eurostar and TGV to the station about 10 mins walk from the mooring is also possible.
 

(Footnote by Philip, boatshare. I have stayed in Auxerre
and it is a really really nice place to spend a few days)
