General comments by vendor


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. 

We have been owners of shares in Silver Steel since 2001 and at one point owned three shares.  We have thoroughly enjoyed our cruising in France, so much so that we bought our own Stevens cruiser. 

We sold two shares in Silver Steel some time ago, but have now decided to sell our last share.  It has always been a very friendly and cooperative syndicate. 

The boat was based at St Jean de Losne for several years, but has been at Auxerre since 2012 until this winter, when she was moved to Niderviller.

The boat has been exceptionally well cared for and without question is in better condition today than when we purchased our share.
