Houseboat [luxury] hire business for sale

Income and lifestyle in an idyllic location or a passive investment in a market poised for major growth - $1.75m
Being the only vessel to meet the needs of a large, untapped market of discerning individuals who want the pleasure of a short holiday on the water, with the level of comfort not available from houseboats in Queensland – the business was a success from the day it was launched.
Built a few years ago for his private use, the owner has spent almost $2m on the build and fit-out to a level of luxury usually found only in super yachts. With business demands encroaching on his time to enjoy the craft, he invested in bringing the vessel into survey. The 2E and 4E survey covers 12 passengers plus crew. The business has achieved a level of awareness and popularity that defies the lack of marketing to date. Word of mouth and referrals have consistently attracted the interest of magazine photo shoots, high end event planners and private parties who value the exclusive luxury and seclusion this vessel offers. Included with the business is a commercial grade Gemini RIB in 2C Survey for 10 (9 passengers plus skipper)
All aspects of the day to day running of the business are expertly handled by the very experienced skipper. A new owner has many options to grow their investment.
Implement a basic online marketing strategy to deliver on its potential to generate around $380,000 net profit. Forward booking activity supports this projection
Airbnb is a proven strategy to maximise the income potential of luxury accommodation on the Gold Coast
The galley has been upgraded to meet commercial kitchen requirements opening even more possibilities.
There is an ever growing list of people who have confirmed their interest in syndication, giving the owner the option to quickly recoup their investment while retaining a holiday home on the water
The commercial grade RIB is ideal to develop two additional revenue streams
Fast water taxi service which is in increasing demand
Meet the growing need for small, personalised whale watching tours
Combining online booking functionality with the skippers' day to day management makes remote ownership a very practical option
Businesses that offer an enviable lifestyle which feels more like a hobby than a great investment are very rare, particularly when they are poised to benefit from the new normal.......
