General comments about the boat
The owners of Rivendell took over the boat from The Boatshare Company in 2005 and now have full dedicated committee and engineer to look after the running of the boat. The owners hold an annual meeting to discuss the boat and at the meeting the costs for the following year will be estimated. During the year owners are kept informed by email an newsletter.

Starting from the rear of the boat is the semi-trad stern, which has two lockers for the storage of equipment. Fitted seat covers are available for their use as seats. Steps lead down into the main bedroom, which is equipped with a fixed 5ft extending double bed. There is ample storage space in two full length cupboards, an over-bed cupboard, under-bed space, a dressing table with cupboard below, plus shelving.

Walking through a corridor, a separate bathroom on the left is equipped with a full shower cubicle with a domestic hinged door, wash basin, with storage below, and a pump out toilet. The gas central heating is enclosed in a cupboard off this corridor, and there is other storage adaptable for food or clothes.

The corridor enters the galley area through a door; there is a curtain at the bedroom end to provide privacy at night. The well equipped galley contains a 4 burner gas hob, a gas cooker with eye level grill, a washbasin with double drainer, and electric refrigerator, plus ample storage. Opposite the galley is an opening hatch for extra light and ventilation; this has a Perspex panel for extra light on rainy days. Beyond the galley is a raised dinette which converts to a double bed. There is then a lounge area with two comfortable chairs which can be converted to single beds to provide six berths. A curtain is available to screen off this area when it is used as a six berth. Heating can be provided by the solid fuel stove and/or radiators served by the gas central heating system.

Television, DVD player, radio and a dedicated mobile phone are opposite the solid fuel stove.
The boat carries the CE mark & complies with the Recreational Craft Directive which includes the boat safety certificate.

Power is provided from batteries with 240V ac available from either the on board inverter or a land line hook up at the marina.

Steps lead to the fore deck which has space for folding chairs provided. The water tank is under the deck and the stem locker contains three gas bottles.

General Comments by vendor
Rivendell is managed by an elected committee, with the result that annual costs are considerably lower than those charged by managing companies. It is well maintained and has been improved every winter.

As Rivendell is winterised and not used in the colder months likelihood of frost damage is minimised, and also the blacking is not damaged by " ice breaking".

Over the 2015/2016 winter the bottom has been blacked, the fireplace rebuilt and the water pump replaced. A new cooker was fitted in 2013. The gas boiler and shower cubicle were replaced shortly before I purchased my shares in 2012.
