Business Description
The business offers high-value clients, luxuary worldwide cruising with on-board crewing and hospitality services. It is the ultimate in bespoke services. High-value clients are encouraged to choose their own cruising itineraries, destinations, activities and hospitality services, to create a unique and individual sailing experience.

With such a superb cruising yacht, and with all the business management and operational mechanisms in place, this is a profitable business, ready for immediate expansion and development, and relocatable to anywhere in the world.

The business has until now been under-trading operating just 3-4 charters a year to break even. As an example, an additional 4 weeks charter p/a generates over £90,000 profit.

Celtic Sailing and Exploration Limited was established by the current owner in 2003, and grew from his love of sailing and a passion to share the pleasure of luxuary yacht cruising, with others.

The luxuary yacht was expertly selected as the foundation for this business, offering outstanding capabilities, a worldwide cruising reputation and a unique style and beauty. Over the years, this superb yacht has enjoyed several major re-fits and most recently with the current business owner, valued at over £1 million.

Over the years, the current business owner has created a successful and profitable yacht charter business that is easily managed, with efficient and flexible operational systems that are transferable to anywhere in the world, and with the opportunity to significantly increase profits simply by increasing the number of charter bookings each year.

This is a reluctant sale due to poor health.

Potential Growth By operating just 3-4 charter bookings a year, the business generates enough income to fully maintain this luxuary yacht, cover all her costs for mooring in marinas, and pays for one full-time Engineer member of crew to live on-board and take care of yacht maintenance.

There is massive and immediate growth potential, simply by increasing the number of charters each year.

Until now, the business has been under-trading. However, an additional 4 weeks charter p/a would generate over £90,000 in profit.

The marketing, charter bookings, destination planning and crewing of the yacht are all managed by brokers. This is an attractive business to a new owner who is keen to enjoy the benefits of cruising and hospitality services, on board his/her own private yacht. Equally, this is an attractive business for a new owner who is keen to become involved in the sailing industry and increase profit margins, either by taking on an active role in crewing on-board, or gradually removing reliance on brokers and independently managing the business operations.

Facilities A well established and fully operational business, with systems and procedures to ensure the excellent delivery of services, a committed client base, and sustained profitability.

A gorgeous sailing yacht (steel-hull ketch), re-fitted to an exceptionally high standard of comfort.

The yacht is the ultimate all-weathers world-girdler. She features a beautifully crafted mahogany interior, providing supreme levels of comfort for all her guests. There are three luxurious ensuite cabins for clients, at the aft end of the yacht, and a further three cabins accommodating 5 members of crew, in the forward sections of the yacht. Her raised pilothouse offers all-year round comfort along with the excellent protection of her outside cockpit areas, whilst her prominent raised bulkwarks and stainless steel guardrails allow safe passage around her teak-laid deck areas.
