PLEASE READ VERY CAREFULLY TO ENSURE YOU UNDERSTAND FULLY WHAT IS OFFERED FOR SALE.For sale is a 4 week Red share in a 58′ semi-trad narrowboat. This is not a timeshare but is full ownership of a percentage of the boat. We have owned our share since launch in 2006 but time has come to hang up our windlasses!Dragonfly was launched in 2006 but does not show any signs of ageing. She has been subject to a strict yearly maintenance schedule, including regular YEARLY blacking, under the watchful eye of the management company and is in beautiful condition. She has been repainted once during her life being subject to a bare metal respray and then laquered to preserve her appearance. The boat is in semi-trad style with rear bedroom, shower and galley midships, side dinette and front lounge.Inside has been recently re-upholstered to compliment the warm natural wood decor – see photographs. Dragonfly is in 2+4 berth layout, being a fixed double (4’6″) sprung mattress bed with additional berths being created in the dinette and lounge areas if required. It has a full size shower and flushing pump-out toilet. Hot water is supplied from the calorifier which is heated during the day when the engine is running and can be topped up using the central heating boiler. The galley consists of a gas hob, electric single oven and grill, microwave and washer/dryer. There is a full inventory of cups, plates, bowls, pots, pans and cooking utensils. She has full central heating via a diesel boiler and additionally a multifuel stove for those really cosy winter nights. Plus TV, DVD player and radio and a full stock of maps and cruising guides. There is sufficient bedding (pillows and duvets) although this has been removed during the current pandemic but will be fully reinstated when allowed.Externally the bow area has lockers to contain various items of cruising inventory and provides a comfortable seating area. Beneath the front deck is a stainless steel cold water tank. At the stern more lockers hold windlasses, mooring pins and other items and provide additional seating for steerer and crew in the semi-trad area. Below the deck is a Beta diesel engine and the leisure batteries which provide 230v power throughout the boat via an inverter. There is also a shoreline connection where shore power is available, such as in a marina. There is a single lever Morse-type speed control. In short there is everything you need to go cruising except clothes and food!The sale will be conducted through the management company, Carefree Cruising, to ensure all contractural obligations are met. Please see the Carefree Cruising website at http://www.carefreecruising.com/boats/dragonfly/ for more information and how to begin the buying process. The asking price of £750 is open to offers. I will answer questions about the boat but all questions relating to the buying process must be directed to Carefree.There is an annual maintenance charge of approx. £2000 which is managed and ringfenced by Carefree. This covers all ongoing maintenance and repairs and includes a sizeable contingency fund to cover any unexpected repairs, so owners should never be faced with demands for any extra funds. There is an AGM every year where decisions about improvements, changes or repairs are made jointly between the owners and Carefree and designed to fit within the budget. Every year the allocation of weeks is determined by a rotating schedule. This 4 week Red share entitles the owner to choose 2 Red weeks in the peak season (roughly end of May to end of July, outside school holidays), 1 Yellow week off season (March-May & Sept-Oct) and 1 Blue week (Nov-Feb). In 2021 the Red weeks have already been chosen being 2 weeks from 5th – 19th June on a Saturday changeover.During the pandemic cruising has obviously not been possible. However strict infection control methods have been implemented to ensure risk cross-contamination between owners is reduced to an absolute minimum and all necessary materials have been supplied.Thank you for your interest.
