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||
Two designated "special" shares have priority booking of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than "ordinary" shares at a rate of 120% thus reducing the other 10 shares contributions

General Comments by vendor
Winthorpe is a luxury Five Star boat. This is an excellent opportunity to obtain a share in a first class boat and join a friendly self-managed syndicate. The boat was completely repainted during 2011 and and gets many favourable comments from admirers on the cut. There are two TV units, one in the fixed bedroom and the other in the lounge. The TV has a self seeking satellite system and within each TV is an in-built DVD.
The syndicate has decided to remain self managed as this reduces overall costs. This arrangement has worked extremely well for all owners.
Winthorpe has its own website which contains a wealth of information about all aspects of the boat. In line with all boat syndicates there is an annual meeting of all owners usually late October or during November of each year. During the meeting the owners agree expenditure, improvements and moorings for the following year.
This is a very well run boat with an enthusiastic group of owners who really appreciate being members of such an excellent and well constructed boat with all the mod cons of a floating Five Star hotel.
