Booking System
A booking chart for the following calendar year is circulated in agreed priority order before the owners’ annual meeting, where the bookings for the next year are confirmed.
Each owner has a priority for that year, and moves up five places each year. Each owner can choose two weeks in the ‘high season’ (April to October inclusive), and one week in the remainder of the year. By this route, thirty-six weeks are firmly booked before the year begins.
Allowing for time for winter maintenance, the remaining twelve weeks are booked with priority in reverse order to the original chart, so having last choice originally does have its compensations. These extra bookings are confirmed on the first day of the month before the month of the booking
Priority for school holidays Up to three shareholders may opt for "school holiday" preference shares (referred to as ‘Special’ shares), for which they pay a premium of 25% on the running costs each year, but get first choice of the school holiday weeks available.

Currently (2017) there are TWO shares with this status on the boat.
General comments about the boat

General comments about the boat:-

Hawksmoor has a semi-traditional rear deck with plenty of room for the steerer plus two (and a dog!) and contains lockers with gas bottles, windlasses, mooring pins etc. Moveable deck boards give access to the engine bay, weed hatch and batteries.

Underwent a complete Back To Metal repaint in smart new livery in 2016.

The main bedroom has an en-suite (pump-out loo and wash basin with extractor fan) with a double bed (extendable to 5’), storage beneath, cupboards above and a full height wardrobe.

There is a flat-screen digital TV.


Duvets and pillows for 6 are provided.

Beyond the privacy door is the Alde gas central heating boiler (concealed by the opened
door), with radiators in master bedroom, main saloon and the bathroom. Further is the bathroom to the left with corner bath, shower and full width mirror, radiator, wash basin, pump-out loo, storage and extractor fan.

Next is the galley which has a good area of worktop, numerous cupboards, gas oven, grill and hob, electric fridge, microwave and ceiling extractor fan. A glass-fronted see-through cabinet is also fixed to the ceiling and an opening side-hatch prevents overheated cooks on fine days.

Moving further towards the bow is the dinette; with removable, extending full size table (for 6 people) or alternative half size table (for 2) The dinette extends to a double bed and incorporates a wardrobe, storage and electric freezer.

The saloon has a double sofa-bed and a ‘modesty’ curtain. There is a flat-screen digital TV with DVD, automotive style CD/AM/FM radio and 4 (adjustable) speakers throughout the boat. For additional heating there is a solid fuel stove.

The folding French-window style doors lead to the well deck which has a seating area (with optional table) and three lockers for hoses, coal, mops etc. and the brass water tank filler cap. There is a bow-thruster down there as well!

There is a vacuum cleaner on board for those wishing to self-valet.

General Comments by vendor

Hawksmoor is owned and self managed by an established, friendly and successful syndicate who are collectively committed to maximising the enjoyment of the boat to the benefit of all owners. There is a mixture of owners from young to old and the group includes both original owners and relative newcomers. The group has a number of owners with practical expertise in a variety of skills relevant to the canals, but also those who by choice or time constraint are active only in participating in syndicate decisions.

Owners can undertake extended cruises, with remote handovers, subject to co-operation with the owner before or after them on the booking chart.

Please note that, as a condition of our insurance, owners are responsible for making sure they (and anyone they allow to use or steer Hawksmoor):

1) Have at least 3 weeks meaningful (i.e. to include a significant amount of steering and lock operating - NOT just as a passenger) previous narrow-boating experience.

2) Report (to Insurers Towergate Mardon) if anyone is prohibited from driving a motor vehicle, by the DVLA for health reasons, or they have suffered from diabetes, epilepsy, a heart condition or any other physical infirmity or disease within the last 5 years.
