We are pleased to place onto the market this boathouse letting concern which is based in Lymington in the New Forest. It is a picturesque seaside town with lots of local attractions including Bournemouth. It is cited on a top end marina with recently refurbished shower blocks.
This Business was established by the Owner is 2014 and has steadily grown. He has other business interests and this is the reason for sale. He has Owned the boat for 4 years and its present value is around £90,000. It has been upgraded and is in very good condition.
The Business provides the boat for letting accommodation purposes only. It is largely a family run business with the Owners partner doing the cleaning and laundry and his niece dealing with marketing and bookings. He welcomes all new guests and checks them out.
In terms of marketing, websites such as holiday lettings and air b and b are used as well as pay per click facebook. The boat attracts much of the high end market including weekenders, clients from abroad, couples and clients with dogs.
In terms of competition, there are 3 other boats offering similar service in the marina, but 95% of new clients seem to stumble across it and it is around 50% cheaper than using a guest house.
There is a lot of potential for this business as it is very much in its infancy. Trips could be organised for whole or half days with picnics
The owner is happy for a hand over period if required.
