General Comments by vendor
Willow is currently moored at
Calcutt Marina, this is an excellent location for cruising, offering
an easy week with 4 locks each way or as many locks as you can
handle via Warwick and Birmingham on a longer break.
The mooring location is discussed and voted on at the Annual General Meeting each year. Calcutt Marina look after the boat very well and the staff are friendly and helpful.
Willow is a comfortable semi-trad boat that has all mod cons including microwave, washing machine, central heating as well as the required log/coal fire for cosy winter nights. The bed is larger than most narrow boats have at 4'6 x 6'6.
Other owners are often willing to exchange weeks if circumstances mean that you cannot take your agreed week(s).
We have enjoyed several years of shared ownership boating with originally Ownerships and the last four years with Willow. We have now bought our own trad style 50' boat and no longer need this share.
Willow is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable break
away from it all. Buying a boat share was certainly one of the best
decisions we ever made. It allowed us to cruise the network in 'our'
boat enjoying some superb holidays in different parts of the
appointment most Sunday mornings at Calcutt.
