Now available to the market is this excellent opportunity to take on a well-established boat trip operator based in the centre of Bristol.
In operation since 1999, the business has been providing leisure cruises for a variety of events, as well as commuter services, gaining a brilliant reputation among tourists and locals in Bristol.
In this sale, the vendor is looking to sell the Avon River Cruise branch of their business. This will include taking on The Silver Salmon boat, although there is also the option to buy Avon River Cruise's other boat, The Spirit of Freedom, as well.
As the current owner is now seeking retirement, a new owner is required to take over the business and continue running operations smoothly.
The business offers a variety of comfortable, entertaining boat trips which accommodate for a range of events and have afforded it an exceptional reputation. These private hire trips include hen and stag parties, birthdays, weddings, school trips, and corporate events.
The sale comes complete with a high quality vessel and all pier structures/moorings, as well as longstanding office and maintenance staff. The Silver Salmon is an impressive 72ft widebeam barge featuring a fully stocked bar, separate heads, a great selection of food options, a 5* food hygiene rating, and the strictest safety equipment. It can accommodate up to 67 passengers, making it one of the largest passenger holding boats in the harbour.
An informative, interactive website is also included in the sale. The business is shown to be highly credible, with complimentary reviews on Facebook and Trip Advisor and a rating of 4.5. Furthermore, the vendor is willing to offer a handover by staying on in a consultancy role.
This is a great opportunity to acquire a well-established local tourism/event business situated in the heart of Bristol. Ideal for someone who owns a similar business and wants to capitalise on the growth of the local area, or a first-time buyer looking for a profitable, exciting opportunity, a new owner could take steps to develop the business further.
Additional vessels would allow for more boat trips to happen at once and allow for other trips to be introduced. More advertising through social media channels would be a great way to spread the word to tourists and those coming from further afield.
