Booking System
 Each owner has a designated priority position on a rota which changes each year. This cycle ensures that each owner will move from bottom to top over a five year period when the cycle begins again.

Starting with position one, each owner selects two weeks in the high season (April to September) and one week in the low season. The remaining weeks, allowing for winter maintenance, are booked in reverse priority order i.e. from last to first.
Priority for school holidays
 A maximum of two shares may be upgraded to having school holiday priority. This in effect allows an owner with this type of share to have first choice of holidays irrespective of their position on the rota with the proviso that the holidays may only be taken during the school weeks allocated for holidays.

The cost of this type of share is set at a premium of 25% of the monthly running costs for the entire year in which the option is taken up.
Presently (2018) this option has not been taken up by any of the current owners.

General Comments by vendor

Sapphire has a group of owners who meet every year to discuss the next years location and management of this privately operated boat. We have an active policy on maintenance and replacements.

During the 2013 / 2014 winter works the hull was stripped back to bare metal from the rubbing strake down. Corrosion pits welded and sanded down, 3 extra anodes fitted each side and blacked with 2 coat epoxy. A new stern tube and shaft fitted and later that year a complete new rudder assembly fitted.

The roof was stripped back to bare metal and painted in blue and cream with a non slip paint. The curtains and floor tiles were renewed throughout the inside.

For 2016/7 the hull from the rubbing strake up to the gunwales taken back to bare metal and repainted. Also new galley flooring and water tank liner fitted.

 For 2018/19 the rear toilet and tank was removed and a new wardrobe, cupboard and general storage area created in its place.

Full electrical and battery charging system installed to enable use of shore power when available.

Both of these major tasks were undertaken by fully competent share owners.
