An AGM is held in November (or sooner) in the Midlands;
One item on the agenda is the drawing of weeks.
The year is divided up into 4 seasons;
Spring- March to May, Summer- June to August,
Autumn- September to Mid November,
and Winter- Mid November to February.
We draw at the meeting for all our 4 weeks; one week per season.
We then spend the next 20/30 minutes circulating
with other owners to exchange dates to find the
most suitable for everybody.
|Priority for school holidays||No such scheme on this boat|
General Comments About the Boat
Enterprise is a semi-traditional boat painted in blue and red. The boat had a total repaint in 2018. The boat has a black cratch cover.
Entering from the rear deck, there is an enclosed deck and steps down to the main bedroom. There are traditional Rose and Castle doors. There is a carved wooden post on the fixed double bed, a washbasin and a closet for clothes and storage. The main bedroom is en-suite with its own toilet and sink.
The ceiling throughout is oak-panelled. The curtains are a contemporary design to coordinate with the blue carpeting on the floor and half way up the walls and with the cranberry coloured upholstery. The curtains were new in 2019 and have blackout linings.
The main bathroom is in the middle of the boat and has a toilet, shower and washbasin.
The kitchen is next and is equiped with oven, gas hob, refrigerator (new 2019), microwave and filtered drinking water. The boat is equiped with enough crockery, glass tumblers, wine glasses and cutlery for six people. There are also pots, pans and cooking utensils.
The dining area has two settees facing each other which can easily be extended to comfortably seat 6 people. This then converts to a double bed.
The saloon has an L shaped settee which again converts to a double bed and a closet for storage and for clothes. There is also a solid fuel stove and a television with a DVD player. There is central heating to radiators throughout the boat.
All duvets, pillows and protectors are provided by the syndicate and are regularly laundered or replaced.
There are two camp chairs stored on the fore deck.

General comments by vendor
The annual budget is agreed by the shareholders at the AGM depending on what the boat requires. Currently we are paying £130 a month to cover licence, moorings, insurance, turnarounds, engine servicing, repairs, call outs, inventory and replacements, gas bottles and management fees.
The only additional costs are diesel, pump out and valet service (unless you wish to do your own) for the weeks that you use the boat.
Our fellow syndicate members have been very helpful and co-operative when necessary and are pro-active when it comes to the best interests of the boat.
