Booking System
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in agreed priority order before the owners' annual meeting (usually held in October), where the bookings for the next year are confirmed.

Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up 1 place one year, 3 places the following year. Each owner can choose two weeks (preferably as a fortnight) in the 'high season' (April to September inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year, 'low season'.

By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins. Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the current chart, so having last choice originally, does have its compensations. The booking chart for these additional weeks is circulated after the owners' annual meeting.
Priority for school holidays

General Comments by vendor
Our insurance requires Owners to have a minimum of 1 years previous boating experience.

Viewings outside the winter works period will be on the Friday changeover day at midday in the marina, or during the above pre-booked weeks.

Owners agree that smoking is not allowed within the boat, but is allowed on deck.

We bought in to Scherzo in 2006 with the intention of staying for a year or two; we are selling now, some 12 years later, due to health issues, and will greatly miss our canal holidays.

It is a ‘homely’ boat having been well cared for.

The website was updated in 2017 and the details have not materially changed since, except for the appointment of a new boat manager and the move to the Heritage marina on the Macclesfield canal.
