OWNERS COMMENTS

Bizzie Lizzie is based in Port Alcudia Mallorca, she is a 2004 Fairline Squadron 55, very well kept and a very experienced well run syndicate.
The boat has been owned by a syndicate for many years, and running costs per member run at around £4,500 -5000 per annum.
Please note the stated running costs are an approximate guide.
In addition you pay for any fuel used. Fuel consumption is typically 60-120 euros per hour depending on speed.
There are many bays and beautiful locations within half an hours travel from the port.
To charter a boat like this would cost you around £1500-2000 per day!
We collect £350 per month per member and at the point we need to service the boat and the annual lift out we request around £1000+ depending on what needs doing. Please note this is a guide based on the past 2/3 years of running the boat finances.
The boat is maintained by the syndicate, and for each visit when you arrive the boat is cleaned internally/externally, beds made up with fresh linen, and it is all yours for that designated week.
Most of us use Bizzie Lizzie for pottering around the island, finding tranquil bays to moor up and experience tranquillity.
We have a jet rib so you can travel ashore or even water ski off it. It is a great base to explore the island whether you decide to sail to your destination, use a car or public transport. It just presents so many options and a different type of holiday experience.
There is even a washing machine/drier on board.
In order to sail Bizzie Lizzie you must have at least day skipper, then it is mandatory that you have a couple of days training with a local skipper. Many of us have come from a sports boat background, and taken our day skipper and been trained on the boat to achieve the RYA ICC. This can be arranged again with local captains.
Port Alcudia boasts many fine restaurants, all within minutes of the boat. There is a beach nearby to give alternative lazy day options, and you can dine at the Botel Alcudiamar which is just a couple of minutes away. Sometimes we decide to have breakfast there at only 9 euros each.
At the AGM we select weeks based on seniority, week 1 is chosen by everyone, we go round the table then return back to the first senior member to make choice of week number 2 and so on.So that equates to 48 weeks when the boat can be used, each member getting 6 weeks use.
We take the boat out of the water generally February for service/antifouling/polishing where we allow 4 weeks to complete this work and do any needy repairs.
Sometimes members cannot use chosen weeks and offer swaps. It works really well.
Our AGM last year was on 24 November in the Midlands, which is centrally placed for our members, and when allocated weeks for next year are arranged together with annual servicing and any work needed to be done over the winter time.
The boat is lifted out each year, anti-fouled, painted, cutlass bearings and anodes/sea cocks changed.
We have a syndicate agreement that states that the boat cannot be sold or moved to another marina without 100% agreement. All other decisions are based on a majority vote.
The mooring which we are currently on is pontoon 7, and we pay directly the mooring fee to Alcudiamar Marina each month.
