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 five years the cycle begins again.
Each owner can choose two weeks (separately or as a fortnight) in the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year.
Owners may then pick a fourth week, where the chart is turned on its head and the person who was at the bottom gets first choice, and the next etc.
|Priority for school holidays
Three designated "special" shares have priority booking of school holiday weeks.
|General comments about the boat
Torksey is a Hexagon built, reverse layout, semi-trad style boat, benefiting from a full repaint during the 2012-13 winter.
The rear cockpit has seating area on the port side with the gas bottle storage in a locker beneath and shoreline socket to the starboard.
Below the rear deck is a well-serviced 4 cylinder Nanni Diesel engine, which powers an Axiom propeller and the bow thruster via a hydraulic drive system. Also in the engine compartment are the calorifier and battery banks.
Steps to the starboard side of the boat drop into the fitted galley. To the port side is the hob with oven below, followed by the stainless steel sink all set into granite style work surfaces. Three cupboards beneath the work surfaces, include one housing the Shoreline 12V fridge.
On the starboard side there is the electrical panel then a cupboard/drawer unit housing the microwave and a display cabinet over. The galley is well equipped with crockery, cutlery, glasses and utensils.
This brings you to the dinette area, with a glazed opening side hatch in the starboard wall. There is an L-shaped dinette, with storage below, on the left, which sits six when using the drop down bench opposite. The table stores neatly when not in use. Forward of the dinette is a shelved cupboard and pullout freezer below. A TV/DVD Player with satellite decoder is located in the unit opposite the dinette.
From the dining area the a corridor runs along the starboard side of Torksey with the main bathroom to the port containing a corner shower, basin with storage under, pump-out toilet, heated towel rail and 230 V shaver socket.
A door across the corridor separates the bedroom cabin from the dining area. There is a memory foam mattress and extension insert which creates a 5ft fixed double bed. Storage is provided by drawers below the bed, a high level cupboard unit above the bed and wardrobe housing the Alde gas boiler. The controls to the Alde boiler are above the bed.
Another door separates the cabin from the forward saloon. Before the saloon is the second toilet with pump out WC and basin, then a slim shelved wardrobe. On the rear bulkhead of the saloon is the second TV/DVD player, controller for auto-seeking satellite dish, FM radio, 12 V and 230 V sockets. Seating either side of the saloon with storage under can be used as single beds or converted to form a full width double.
Glazed folding doors open on to the well deck with seating either side and storage lockers under. There are removable cushions for both the bow and stern seating which are kept on the boat.
Both space heating (via three radiators distributed along the main corridor and the bathroom towel rail) and water heating are provided either by the Alde boiler or the engine cooling system.
A combi-inverter provides 230V power to 5 sockets distributed throughout the boat.
Kardene flooring was fitted in the galley and dining area and new carpet tiles to the rest of the boat in 2013, all cleaned using the Dyson cylinder cleaner kept on board.

General Comments by vendor
Here is the ideal opportunity to join a successful group of boat-sharers, the majority of whom bought the boat from new.
We are happy to answer any questions you have about the boat and could arrange an inspection visit if required.
This IS one of three school holiday share where three owners have priority of choosing school holiday weeks therefore it will never fall below third in the list for your first three weeks chosen.
The boat is regularly serviced and professionally maintained by local marina workshop to a high standard and managed by the syndicate members.
An AGM is called in November to discus any maintenance and refurbishment issues to be carried out in the future and whether to relocate the boat for the next calendar year.
The craft comes with useful additional extras such as powerful hydraulic bow thrusters and a separate generous sized freezer as well as the Shoreline fridge and separate forward en-suite toilet .
