Sailing Cruises Business for Sale Akaroa

Cruising Akaroa in 'Style' on a yacht rarely seen nowadays, a floating 'Work of Art'. Akaroa Sailing Cruises is available to purchase for the first time. My client has decided to sail a new path after 10 years of pure enjoyment doing something that only a few get to do and that is to pursue your passion as a business.

Whats on Offer - The business, mooring and the SV Manutara. The Manutara is a 47 foot, beautifully maintained, rare classic Ocean Sailing Yacht. One of the last A-class Keelers to be built and designed to win the Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race in 1946.

Brokers Comments - I have experienced first hand the 2 ½ harbour cruise and it is truly an amazing trip. The stories, history and geography lesson alone is worth the trip and then you get the added bonus of the incredible landscape and wildlife you encounter along the way, tops of a very well balanced tourism business model that caters for all age groups. If you are looking for a new challenge and want to be part of the booming tourism Industry, you should seriously look at this opportunity. This business has very low overheads and is a eco-friendly tourist attraction based in an amazing location.
