|General comments about the boat|
From the stern deck a hatch and steps lead down into the galley with worktops on both sides, a s/s sink/ drainer with a mixer tap and an under-worktop fridge on one side and a free-standing gas cooker opposite. On one side there is a cloaks recess adjacent to the rear doors - convenient for umbrellas and wet-weather clothes - and on the other side there is a hot water cylinder below the worktop.
Gas cylinders are located in corner/bulkhead units on the rear deck.
The aisle through the galley then off-sets to one side and leads into the 4-person dinette area which has a table and bench seats with storage lockers below.
The bench seats have two-piece full-length cushions and back rests. The table top is demountable and can be repositioned level with the storage lockers to create a small double bed - the cushions being redeployed as a mattress.
A corridor leads through to the main berth - a fixed double bed with a corner wardrobe and dressing table with mirror. There is storage below the bed.
The corridor continues through to the rear saloon but also gives access to the shower room with wc and wash-hand basin and a full height cupboard.
The saloon has a convertible sofa and a matching single chair which can also be converted to a single bed. There is a coffee table and a foot-stool.
At the far end of the saloon - adjacent to the doors out onto the foredeck - is a very efficient log-burning stove which can be used to heat two radiators - one in the dinette area and one in the main berth. The floor in the galley and shower-room is vinyl and all other areas are Flotex carpet which is incredibly easy to keep clean. Double doors lead out onto a short foredeck and the bow locker which is used for storage of windlasses, spikes, lump hammer, mooring lines, spare fenders etc.

|Reason for selling|
|Pre-booked weeks included|
|Holiday entitlement with share offered here.||The shareholder agreement entitles each shareholder to a minimum of two weeks during the peak season April to mid-October. Peak season bookings are not to be taken consecutively unless by prior agreement if other shareholders have not taken up their entitlement. Thereafter bookings can be made at any time.|
|Running costs for 2014||There are no management costs. The Concorde syndicate are enthusiasts who all participate in one way or another with administration and maintenance. Maintenance charges are variable and are currently set at £540pa. Most shareholders pay monthly by Direct Debit and a new shareholder would be required to commence contributions from the month in which they join. The maintenance charges - which are reviewed at the AGM - cover moorings, licenses, servicing etc. We aim to keep the charges as low as practicable with a minimum level of float for unforeseen circumstances.|

General Comments by vendor
Kennet & Avon Concorde was originally commissioned by a small group of friends - some of whom are still shareholders. The default method of recruiting new shareholders has always been through word-of-mouth, friends of friends etc - but this time we find ourselves having to cast a wider net.
K&A Concorde has over the years given our shareholders, their families and friends some truly wonderful experiences as we have journeyed around the inland waterways.
In some years we have co-ordinated our bookings to undertake relays where successive navigations pursue a pre-agreed route without returning to 'base' for the changeovers. The most memorable was over an eight week period when Concorde cruised down the South Oxford canal, onto the Thames, all the way down to Brentford, back up onto the Grand Union, across London to Limehouse basin, back up the Thames (past Westminster etc.) and all the way to Lechlade in Oxfordshire before turning around to head for home.
For those perhaps less enthusiastic about travelling afar our home berth is right at the heart of the East Midlands canal system and setting off from Braunston you can opt to go north, south, east or west - the range and diversity of canals in this area is unparalleled. Or you can just take a short weekend break and stay on-board in the marina and sample the local delights of the village of Braunston and the surrounding countryside.
It's moored in a beautiful setting.
