Booking System
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 September inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-three weeks are firmly booked before the year begins.

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining seventeen 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
There are no special shares (school holiday) at the moment but if one was required the owners would be consulted to arrange the added costs of this arrangement.

General Comments by vendor

Hatherton has a group of owners who have mostly been with her from the start.

We each play a part in looking after her and have made sure that she has been improved over the years. She had a back to bare metal repaint in 2014, a complete change of soft furnishings and new sofa bed in 2016 and over the winter 2017/2018 has had a new Betamarine 43 BHP engine with new gear box and prop-shaft fitted as well as a new diesel fired boiler and new radiators.

There is no management charge as the boat is self-managed. The mooring charge is currently paid annually and has already been paid for 2018 as have the 2017/2018 winter maintenance charges.

A new engine, gearbox, prop shaft and diesel boiler were fitted over the winter and have all been paid for.

All her lighting now has LEDs. You can see from the photos that she is well looked after and we are very proud of her
