Bittern

Bittern was built by Elton Moss Boatbuilders in 2007 and offers a rear bedroomed layout. She has recently benefited for new soft furnishings and a replacement of the core engine unit. She was repainted in 2013. Bittern is currently based at Kings Lock, Middlewich until at least April 2021. The boat is designed to accommodate up to six people in a 2 + 4 format and is pet friendly.

Bedroom: In the rear bedroom there is a full sized double bed, plentiful storage and washing machine / tumble drier.

Bathroom: The cabin bathroom offers a full sized shower and a pump out toilet.

Galley: A spacious Galley, with the full domestic sized gas oven and grill, separate four burner gas hob, fridge/freezer, 230v microwave, a dishwasher and granite worktop.

Dinette: The dining area offers an L shaped dinette, which converts to double berth,  with freestanding table.

Saloon: The saloon has comfortable built in seating that converts to beds and a wood burning stove. There is a flat screen TV, a DVD player and Radio / CD player.

2020/21 Syndicate Budget

Please note: Unlike some other Share Boat schemes, our syndicate budgets include the FULL running costs of the boat, and so show the total annual amount that you will pay towards maintaining and using your boat (excluding diesel and pump out). Our syndicate budgets include a budget for winter works (sometimes called annual maintenance) and a contribution towards future repairs, such as repainting the boat or replacing the engine. Some schemes show only the actual annual running costs of the boat, with no contributions shown for winter works or for future major repairs. They LOOK cheaper BUT THEY’RE NOT! It’s all part of our open, honest and transparent service.
