Autumn Boat Share Show is nearly here!

It's only just over a fortnight to go before the Autumn Boat Share Show at Overwater Marina on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th September.  Overwater Marina is on the Shroppie just north of Audlem - information on how to get there is here - or set the satnav to CW5 8AY.  The Show runs in conjunction with the RNLI Festival and is open from 10am on both days, closing at 5pm on the Saturday and 4pm on the Sunday.  Admission is free and parking is by donation to the RNLI.

Adderbury, managed for her owners by Ownashare, is
the oldest boat on view at the Autumn Boat Share Show.
She was launched in 2001 and has both a school holiday
share and a standard share available,
priced at £2,750 and £1,750 respectively.
Eight boats are currently booked in to be on view.  They offer a wide range of age, price and layout:

Black Watch (Saturday only)
Happy Days
Harmonia (Sunday only)
Phoenix (Saturday only)
Water Lily 

A full list of the shares available in these boats, together with information about size, age, share asking price and how they're managed can be found here.  

Skylark was launched at this year's Braunston Boat Share Show
in April and is the newest boat on view at Overwater.
She is managed for her owners by Carefree Cruising and
shares are available priced from £3,875 to £7,245
depending on the size of share and the time of year
when holidays can be taken.
With a range of share prices from £900 to £8,250, ages from 19 years old to a 2018 launch and all four management companies represented, there is something at the Show for nearly every preference.
