AGM held annually ( usually Dec. or Jan) and co-owners negotiate cruising calendar. So long as you are reasonably flexible this seems to work OK. From experience of other private syndicates most person's choices are met without having to go to fixed weeks or round robin etc.
|Reason for sale|
|Running costs 2012|
Each share entitles the co-owner to several weeks cruising per annum. Weeks are not rigidly fixed from year/year but negotiable at the AGM prior to the years cruising calendar.
This boat is fitted out to a very high standard and feedback from the existing shareholders is excellent.
Viewing is highly recommended if you are serious about joining a private syndicate and having a 1/7th equitable share in the boat.
Remember that no other persons or parties have a financial interest in the boat and the syndicate is self functioning i.e. no management arrangements.
It was decided to re-locate to Barby Marina in 2011
since this brand new marina offers excellent facilities, is easily
accessible (close to junction 18 M1) but more importantly gives easy access
to a range of cruising options along different canals in various directions.
