The initial offer price is £17,500 per Syndicate Share.
Each Syndicate Ownership has been valued at £31,500 per 16/64ths share based simply on the savings achieved over outright ownership so the current offer price represents a (very) theoretical saving of £14,000.
Terms: 10% holding deposit of £1,750 to reserve your share, the balance payable in full or with our finance (see below) within fourteen days. The deposit may be refundable in full or in part within the 14 days if you decide not to proceed with your purchase.
Prospective syndicate owners must satisfy the original owner or Boat Manager that they are sufficiently experienced to meet standard marine insurance requirements.
[This Border Minstrel advertisement (for an alternative layout) was published in 1966 but, before you think our syndicate prices are extortionate, we should point out that £6,750 in 1966 is equivalent to about £88,000 in today's money - and did not include all the modern extras now installed on Iroko!]
