Booking System
 A booking chart for the following year is circulated during the previous summer, so that it is completed prior to the owners' annual autumn meting, where it is confirmed. Initially, each owner may book 3 weeks (2 weeks high season, 1 week low season) and, thereafter, the chart is re-circulated for owners to book a 4th week if wished. There is a rota system which ensures that everyone moves up the list each year (unless you are currently top of the list, in which case you then move to the bottom for the following year). This ensures a fair choice of holiday dates for all. The system is very democratic and we've found that it works well for everyone.

With only 11 owners, there is enough flexibility in the system for maintenance not to affect anyone's weeks. The fourth week is booked in reverse order of priority.

Priority for school holidays

A maximum of 2 "Special" shares has priority booking for school holiday weeks and these owners pay a higher proportion of the costs than "Ordinary" syndicate members, thus reducing the running costs for the other 10 shareholders.

At present, only one special share is allocated
(correct 2015)

General comments about the boat
From the spacious stern (plenty of space for al-fresco dining), steps lead down to the saloon with 2 armchairs which convert to single beds, solid fuel stove, full height wardrobe with drawers under, corner storage unit, 1800w inverter, flat screen TV/DVD player and built in radio.

The dining area contains banquette-type seating with storage under, which converts to a double bed, plus removable dining table which folds flat for easy storage.

The well equipped galley has plenty of storage space, gas oven and hob, built in microwave, fr
idge and stainless steel sink/drainer.

Opposite the sink is a large side hatch with double doors and lifting roof hatch. The doors can be opened in fine weather to "bring the outside in" or fitted with the on-board Perspex panel to allow extra light into the galley area.

Next is the the bathroom with trian
gular bath with shower, hand basin, loo and storage cupboards. There is plenty of room to hang wet gear over the bath to dry in less that perfect boating weather.

Forward of the bathroom is a privacy door, followed by a separate loo with hand basin, then the main bedroom with a fixed 4' bed which is easily extendable to 5' with an extra mattress section. Under the bed are 2 large storage drawers. There is also a spacious wardrobe unit and cupboards above the bed head.

A step leads to the forward deck with a capacious water tank in the bow and 4 lockers (storage for 2 gas bottles, solid fuel, hose, pins etc). The lockers provide extra seating surfaces (cushions on board).

The curtains and carpet tiles were renewed throughout in 2013.

General Comments by vendor
Built by Milburn Boats on Graham Reeves steelwork.

Chisbury is a smart, well maintained, cruiser style narrow boat which underwent an extensive, external re-paint at the end of 2011.

The cruiser-style layout means that there is a large area to the stern of the boat for sociable gatherings. Also, unlike many narrow boats, you do not come down from deck directly into a bedroom area; not a good idea in wet weather!

The side hatch feature gives the boat a light and airy feel in summer and, in addition to the solid fuel stove, the Alde Comfort gas central central heating boiler and plentiful radiators ensure that you are toasty warm during out-of-season boating.

The engine was renewed in December 2014 with a Kioti Canaline 1.8.

Chisbury is a well managed, well maintained boat. The owners have regularly up-dated and replaced items needing attention. This has included a complete repaint, a new engine, new inverter and new carpet and curtains.

The owners meet annually in October/November in Birmingham to decide on future location and matters needing attention.
