This is a unique opportunity to acquire a long established business with its 3 ferry boats and ancillary equipment. The ferry is a well used local service offering an alternative mode of transport for commuters, shoppers, students and school children living to the west of the river Great Ouse and travelling into Kings Lynn.
There has been a ferry across the river since 1285 and the current owners are keen that the service that they have developed in their 16 year tenure continues to serve the community.
The fleet is made up of a main ferry (jet) and two supporting ferries (Tracked and Small). This clever mix of craft is the product of investment by the current owners and means that the passengers are always delivered directly onto the quayside. There is a mix of back up and other ancillary equipment too.
Modern, reliable and versatile ferry fleet to suit all river conditions
A large proportion of regular passengers
Passenger growth potential as housing developed on adjacent land
Opportunity for additional income through diversification
