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 October inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins.

Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining fourteen 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
Priority for school holidays. Two designated "special" shares have priority booking of school holiday weeks and pay a higher proportion of the costs than "ordinary" shares thus reducing the other 9 shares contributions
General comments about the boat
A semi-traditional style rear deck, under which lies a Vetus M 4.17 engine and hydraulic PRM gearbox. Seating is provided on both sides of the rear deck area.

From the stern we enter the saloon, which along with the dinette is part of a spacious 24ft open plan living area.

From the two comfortable reclining “Captain’s” chairs, you can enjoy the entertainment centre with Freeview TV, DVD and DAB radio/CD connected to four speakers distributing sound throughout the boat.

A traditional solid fuel stove
complements the Webasco diesel central heating system.

The boat features extensive storage throughout. There is an adult-sized ‘put you up’ bed.

Features L-shaped fully upholstered seating (which converts to a double bed at night). The table is removable with storage space provided when not in use. There is a side hatch opposite the dinette, and a full view of the TV from the seating area. Two stools/folding chairs are included to enable five people to dine comfortably.

Boasts a gas hob, eye level oven and grill, plus microwave and full-sized fridge with integral freezer compartment. Extensive storage and solid oak work surfaces.


Luxury bathroom, including a walk-in sh
ower, fresh water flushing WC, hand basin and storage.

Includes a permanent double bed (this converts into a king size if required) TV point and lots of further storage space including a large wardrobe. Glazed double doors open to front deck with seating.


There are both 12- and 240-volt circuits, the latter being served by a Victron Phoenix 3-kilowatt charger/inverter which allows battery charging from a shore-based power supply. The boat carries five 110-amp leisure batteries and one starter battery, monitored by a digital Victron management .

General Comments by vendor
If required an incoming owner can elect to have the share changed to one where each year going forward a school holiday priority can be secured. Please contact the vendor if this option appeals to you.

Built as recently as 2014 this boat has a long list of "mod-cons" internally but externally has a somewhat more traditional look.

The standard of 'fit-out' is extremely high and the full size shower I can vouch is particularly welcoming after a a long day at the tiller.

The semi trad stern offers some break from the weather and can be handy at keeping children under supervision whilst cruising.

There is a diesel boiler for central heating and gas for the hob and oven.

From the mechanical side, the prop shaft is water cooled, so no greasing at the end of the day.

The other owners are very friendly with a mix of levels of boating experience.

If you are new to boating and purchase our share I am happy to spend a day with you on your first voyage, taking you through narrow boating in general and Heartsease in particular.
