General Comments by vendor

Very friendly group, we meet once a year, the rest of the time is by e-mail. Some original members still in the group.

It should be noted that the very detailed information below was added a few years ago and whilst offering a general overview of this scheme some of it could now be out of date and should be considered as a guide only.

Streamline General 1999 to 2010.

Streamline, a 58 ft Reeves hull, fitted out by Pat Buckle entered the Ownerships fleet of syndicate owned boats in 1999. Twelve Owners soon settled in and soon became a friendly team. We changed our mooring base from time to time (on average every two to three years) thus allowing us to explore different cruising routes.

During this period the increasingly experienced Owners considered their expectations re the future wellbeing of Streamline. It was agreed that, whilst nominally remaining under the Ownerships umbrella, they would take over the organising and overseeing of maintenance, including a complete exterior repaint by Andy Russell and a new BMC engine installation 2007; most enlightening and very satisfying experiences; which raised the question ‘Why not go it alone?’. Whilst seriously considering the pros and cons, events overtook us with the demise of Ownerships.

2010 to 2015

Thus was born the ‘Streamline Cruising Club’, a self managed organisation, working within its own ‘Constitution’ and ‘Agreement of Management’. The Chairman, Treasurer and Secretary are assisted by a Maintenance Coordinator and a Booking Secretary, plus the remaining friendly members; there aren’t any ‘unfriendly’! Thanks to the generosity of an Owner, the 2016 November 15th AGM will again take place at their home in Oxfordshire.

The arrival of self management coincided with a move to Barton Turns Marina followed in 2012 by another move, this time to Overwater Marina, where the boat is for 2016 and will remain until voted otherwise at a future AGM.

Recent happenings;

12/2013 Boat externally surveyed.
12/2013 Engine bay degreased and painted.
11/2014 Survey recommendations carried out.
01/2015 Beta 45 engine, and Purifina fuel filter and Calorifier installed.
03/2015 Boat Safety Certificate issued, expires 03/2019.

Streamline’s semi-traditional hull with a rear cabin, central galley, dinette and forward lounge is arguably the most versatile lay out for a syndicate boat.

The helmsman position is a spacious sociable area, with fixed seating for two or three by using an adjustable height dinette stool, whilst still allowing the helmsman plenty of room to get on with the job in hand.
The rear cabin is a comfortable size with plenty of stowage under and above the bed plus wardrobe hanging space.

The 4 ft bed extends to 5 ft if required. Overhead reading lights are fitted. A narrow shelf either side of the cabin, is useful for books and personal items, especially the early morning cuppa. A radiator is fitted under the right hand shelf. Three portholes provide daylight and fresh air. A forward door provides privacy.
The en-suite is a flexible area, with a pump out toilet and hand basin. Since build two easily removed shelves and an overhead rail with coat hangers have been provided, so that the space can also be used for general storage. Owners use it in both modes. Our preference has been for storage, a decision influenced by being able to cruise for week with four adults using only the bathroom toilet, knowing that the rear one is there in an emergency.

Duvets and pillows, for six persons, are provided. They are replaced as agreed at the AGM.

The bathroom has a corner bath, pump out toilet and ceramic hand basin, is large enough to bath/shower/ dry off in comfort. Stowage space is adequate. A porthole is fitted and a razor point is available. Post build a radiator has been fitted, improving autumnal ablutions! Hooks are fitted above the bath for the drying of wet foul weather clothing, plus sufficient elsewhere for towels/clothes. The bathroom interior understandably experiences a high level of wear and tear due to condensation, to maintain the decor it is painted / varnished annually as a DIY project.

The galley lay out is simple and generally works well. It is light and airy being part of the open plan galley/dinette/lounge lay out which creates a feeling of space. Equipment is sufficient for six persons.
The 240v microwave, although small, is adequate. 12v fridge (98 ltr) fitted in 2013. The oven, grill and hob use Calor gas. A 240v socket is available. A window is fitted on the left hand side allowing plenty of light into the galley. Opposite the window is a side door, with optional Perspex insert. Below the door is a bookcase.

The raised dinette providing excellent views of the countryside, is fitted with ‘L’ seating and table area. The dinette adjoining the galley is a most convenient lay out. Below the fixed seating are storage cupboards. The dinette converts into a double bed fairly easily. A full width curtain is fitted to separate the lounge, which provides a large dressing area.

A wardrobe, with drawers below is on the left at the rear of the lounge, ideally suited for visitors.
Opposite is the Squirrel solid fuel stove, ideal for keeping the boat warm in the winter months.
There are two swivel reclining leather covered chairs and footstools which convert into beds. Behind the chairs are stowed the foredeck leather covered cushions and folding table. The front right corner houses the flat TV/DVD player, radio and Satellite aerial. Full length glazed doors have four panels, allowing several opening combinations.

Throughout the interior curtains or blinds are fitted on windows/portholes and as a lounge/dinette divider.
Carpet tiles to all floor areas except vinyl flooring to kitchen, bathroom and en-suite. T&G timber sides and ceiling, with hardwood edged panelled cupboards, drawers and wardrobes.

The foredeck fitted seating with removable covers, provides stowage for all mooring equipment, spare fenders, cleaning gear, coal, watering hoses and wine cellar! With the cushions in place it is a pleasant place to relax.

Space heating is provided via radiators supplied by the Alde boiler, controlled by the thermostat in the rear cabin, or by the solid fuel stove.

Water heating is supplied by the Alde boiler, or via the Calorifier when the engine is running, or via the Calorifier when connected to shore power.

Streamline has Gold Membership of River Canal Rescue. (Waterborne AA)


The Owners own 100% of the boat, which is divided into 12 equal shares.

Departing Owners have either bought their own boat, been overtaken by anno domini or medical reasons.

The majority are retired, although young in spirit, with two still working full time. All have a common aim to keep ‘their boat’ in good working order, not only mechanically but also appearance.

For the benefit of everyone, new Owners are invited to sign the ‘Agreement of Management’.

Streamline is very well equipped and much admired on the cut. With the installation of the new engine and work during recent years Streamline should provide safe cruising for many years.
