The saloon has two comfy armchairs, which convert, into single berths, an LCD TV with DVD.

A boiler supplies the central heating with a solid fuel stove providing additional heating in the colder months.

Shropshire Blue is fully equipped for canal cruising. The engine is serviced regularly and we are also members of a breakdown association.

General Comments by vendor
The AGM is usually held in March when the owners meet to discuss plans for repairs and renewals for the year ahead and set the annual maintenance contribution.

The annual fees (2 payments- March & Sept) cover ALL fees. All moorings, servicing, insurance etc. The only thing you have to pay for when you use the boat is the diesel and pump out fees.

We have an excellent treasurer and the balance is very healthy, estimated at nearly £8,000, which is another way of saying that actually the price being asked could be regarded as £1,000 less than it is!

The AGM decides the costs and has been £1000 per annum per 12th share, payable in two lots, one in March and the other in September.
