This is Omega. We are selling our share in this gorgeous girl. You would own a 1/10th share (i.e you and 9 other people/couples), and in return you get at least 4 weeks holiday every year. This is a private group of people, not a syndicate company, and we meet every year for an AGM where we decide what to change/keep/ spend the money on next. They are a lovely group of people, all passionate about looking after this gorgeous boat, and they all keep her beautifully.We pay around £800 to £900 per year towards all her maintenance costs – mooring fees, winter overhaul, ongoing expenses etc, and in return we each get 2 weeks in peak season (May to September) and 2 weeks outside that. In addition, there are frequently other weeks which some up at short notice which anyone can take up if they want. This is a fraction of what you’d pay to rent a boat, and you have the advantage that it’s yours, you get to feel at home, it’s familiar and homely in a way that a rental just never is. You only need to pay a little towards any diesel and gas you use during your weeks – around £50 a week maximum usually.The boat is very cosy and well-equipped, with reverse layout which means a double bedroom in the bow, a sofa which can become another double, a fully-fitted kitchen, bathroom with tiny bath and shower, and gas central heating, which keeps her really warm. There is Denby china, a fridge-freezer, oven, hob and microwave, and everything you could want to cook yourself some well-deserved end of the day nosh. The hot water and heating are partly heated by the engine while you’re cruising to save energy, and there is a large cold water tank for drinks and the loo. There is a television, dvd-player, radio/cd and loads of books of maps etc, with recommendations for where to go, stop or eat. She’s kept in a very secure mooring on the Oxford canal, having been moved early this year from her last place – the idea is to move every few years so that we get to explore new parts of the country. There is a website all about her: http://nb-omega.co.uk/index.html We are only selling because we never get the time to enjoy her. We’re both freelance, and can only take time out at very short notice, but it’s a very reluctant sale as we really adore this boat.We have 2 weeks in September booked and a week in October, so you’d be guaranteed three weeks this year already, and maybe more – 3 weeks on a commercial canal boat would cost you several thousand. She also has breakdown cover – just in case of the worst!Please call 07789 064158 if you’d like any further information, we’re very happy to have a chat. Payment via BACS or Paypal please
