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

Allowing 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.

Further weeks may be available.
Priority for school holidays
A maximum of two shares may elect to take school holiday preference.
General comments about the boat

Starting at the semi trad stern, down the steps to the rear galley and dinette area where you will find a hob and oven, full size sink/drainer, fridge with freezer compartment, solid fuel stove, side hatch, and dinette that converts to a double bed.

Forward to the bathroom, with a shower over a corner bath, pump out toilet, and hand basin.

The Alde central heating boiler is located on the corridor by the bathroom.

In the centre of the boat is the fixed double bed that extends to a full 5’ king size. Storage is provided in wardrobes, under-bed drawers and cubby-holes.

Forward again there is a second pump-out toilet (or extra storage area), and then into the front lounge area with flat screen TV/DVD. This versatile space has two benches that can be used as single beds, or be converted into a large 6’ double. There are wide opening French windows which lead out to the cratch area with no change of floor level.

Pictures of the boat

  Please note the boat is the darker (maroon) red, the brighter red colour on the upper picture is just a trick of the light.

General Comments by vendor
The other shareholders are a nice bunch, several of them have owned a share on Soulbury since she was launched. We have an annual meeting in September or October, where we talk through arrangements for the following year. Everyone gets the chance to chip in, and decisions are made on a majority vote.

We have just arrived at Aqueduct (2018) and usually stay at a marina for two years to give everyone the chance to fully explore the area, before moving on.

In February 2016 Soulbury was fitted with a new Beta marine engine and gearbox. Extra cooling capacity that the new engine required was also incorporated. The stern gear has also been replaced. This work will ensure the mechanic aspects of the boat will be very sound for many years to come. The bottom was blacked at the same time.

The roof of Soulbury was professionally painted last year, and a new cratch cover made and fitted. Annual winter maintenance and safety checks have just been completed by the boatyard, which included a new charger unit, new larger (and much more efficient!) calorifier, new rear sliding hatch cover, new washbasin in the main bathroom, and the toilet pipes replacing.

Overall, she is a comfortable and homely boat, with the advantage of the reverse layout offering two separate living areas. Especially good with teenage children!
