Property Information

Location:

Naxos island. The boat is docked in the main port. It is the first one when somebody goes to the port, prime spot. Mooring boys are new, with new chains for strong weather.
Naxos is situated between Mykonos and Santorini. Small cyclades (and the world famous Koufonissi island) is accessible for a day trip.

The website:
All our online presence has been developed in house. Our website is a state of the art booking website. Customers can pay with their credit/debit card and paypal. Live availability is shown, and prices can be computed automatically to go up with the demand (the more a day is being searched and booked, the more expensive it gets).
The administration zone give you complete freedom on your availabilities. It is able to generate all paperwork needed for each charter saving you tons of time everyday. At the end of your charter you can upload a zip file with all pictures you took from your customers and it will send an automated email to each of them to go and download the pictures with direct links to your very own eshop where they can buy prints, postcards and souvenirs (all printed by our partner in the UK, all automated).
All social media accounts are included (instagram, facebook, twitter), including separate accounts for the eshop with hundreds of followers

Premises Details:

The boat:
- Beneteau Oceanis 440 from 1995, never chartered bareboat
- new yanmar engine 75HP turbo from 2016, with invoice, directly bought from the importer in Greece, skippered by a RYA Yachtmaster certified skipper since then.
The following have been changed the last 3 years:
- new propeller
- new main sail
- full new electronics (Raymarine axiom)
- new cushions custom made
- new water heater
- new fridge compressor
- new battery charger
- new batteries
- new gangway
- new riggings
- new bimini and sprayhood
- Torqeedo electric engine for dinghy + dinghy plastimo
- new teak stern
- new cockpit lamp
- all hatch seals have been changed (lewmar)

The boat is dry docked every winter in Athens, antifooling professionally done every year. Engine service is being done every year by the same mechanical engineer.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

Ideal if you already do charter on another island and want to grow, or as a starter pack and then add more boats in your company.
The eshop has been created in 2020 and can be further developed to sell more souvenirs, picture prints, etc

Competition / Market:

There are roughly a dozen boats doing day trips in naxos, but the market is not saturated yet. Even during covid (2020) we had to refuse customers because we were already fully booked. We are doing things differently and it pays off.
- We take only 8/10 people onboard
- real good food is included
- pictures taken during the day

Of course you are free to adapt the business model to your idea.

Reasons for selling:

My wife is starting a new job, and I am founding a StartUp, going back to my former work line: IT business.

Trading hours:

We sail from 8:30am to 6:00pm every day (except bad weather), from early april to late october

Employees:
0 - You need a skipper and a host/hostess. Nothing more.
Years established:
Since 2012

Other Information

Support & training:

We can show you the usual spots we like to go if needed, and the exact type of service we offer. A detailed presentation of the website and booking system will be given, and I am callable at any time. I live in Naxos, so it is very easy to come and help if needed. Technical issues with the website will be updated for free for 6 months. Website hosting is provided for free for 12 months (2400 euros gift)
All technical contacts will be ended to you (accountant if you don't have your own, mechanical engineer, rigger, etc)

Financing available:

I would consider a small part to be paid at the end of the 2021 season, if backed up by serious paperwork.

Furniture / Fixtures value:
€90,000 - included in the asking price
