General Comments About the Boat

From the traditional styled stern the engine room is to the rear followed by a fixed double berth, wet-room style shower room with pump-out  toilet and hand basin, Pullman dinette (convertible to double berth), kitchen (with full sized cooker, sink and 12v fridge) and finally the saloon with settee/double bed & captain’s chair plus satellite TV system and radio/audio with speakers in saloon and dinette.  There are sliding doors to separate the fixed bedroom, dinette and saloon to make three private sleeping areas. To complement the overall homely feel she has diesel central heating ( Eberspacher) and, in the lounge, a log burning stove.

Zidon spends the main season “continuously cruising” and the boat is handed directly from one crew to the next, suitably cleaned and ready to cruise. There is a lot of mutual help and advice re changeover points, transport, parking, provisioning, places to eat, etc. The cruising area changes each season and is mutually agreed the previous AGM. This enables you to explore lots of varied and different waterways over successive years and avoids the “there & back” over the same stretch of waterway back to a fixed base.

The consortium is operated very professionally and democratically (the present Chairman is a solicitor) and copies of contractual documents or past financial records can be made available to potential purchasers.

General comments by vendor

Affable syndicate, spare weeks available, formal constitution, wide cruising area, well funded, constant review of boat equipment to keep up to date. There is usually a healthy balance in the sinking fund account (details on request).
