General comments by vendor
Strasbourg is a beautiful historic city and definitely worth a visit all year round and travelling in the other direction takes one to Nancy and on towards Metz.
In the Marina where she is based there is a chandlery with basic supplies and a very good restaurant. Supermarkets are a short drive away.
The area has good access, an 8 hour easy drive from Calais, reasonable flights and good train links.
Dorney is well managed by a friendly syndicate, she is kept up to scratch on an annual basis. The shareholders meet annually in early November when financial and maintenance reports are presented and budgets agreed for the following year as part of an AGM.Owners are in regular contact by email and weeks not used can be exchanged or offered to other owners for use.
Owning a share in Dorney is a wonderful, relaxing and comfortable way of exploring the delights of the French waterways on a much admired beautiful Dutch barge.
