Shimmering Steel is a privately owned Stevens 1140 cruiser, managed by the owners as a boat share syndicate on the River Thames.

Based centrally on the Thames at the fully serviced Thames & Kennet Marina in Reading, Shimmering Steel is in use for a 32 week season from March to October with the eight owners each having four weeks use per year. Regular maintenance is carried out during the season, with refits and updates taking place during the winter. Well equipped for all weather use, sleeping 4+3 in two cabins and the saloon, Shimmering Steel is easily handled and makes a fantastic boat for couples and families alike.

Shared ownership makes boating very accessible at a much lower cost than hiring or sole ownership, and boat-shares for this type of boat are very rare which makes Shimmering Steel uniquely attractive. Owners tend to stay with the boat for many years but the syndicate does occasionally have opportunities for new members with suitable experience.
