For anyone who loves boats and the sea, the once in a lifetime chance to purchase your own profitable yacht charter company, complete with fleet of yachts, RYA training centre and boatyard services business, has become available.
Isle of Skye Yachts, based on the Sleat Peninsula, which is often referred to as ‘The Garden of Skye’, is a highly respected and well established yacht charter business operating a fleet of modern yachts and is now available for purchase as a going concern for the first time in almost 20 years.
Alongside the chartered yacht fleet, Isle of Skye Yachts provides additional income for the business owner through a RYA training centre, a boatyard offering a comprehensive range of services and holding the area franchise dealership for Tohatsu outboard motors.
Uniquely, Isle of Skye Yachts is able to offer year-round employment to its staff as the charter company also maintains its yachts over the winter in its own boatyard, something no other business in the Scottish charter industry currently offers. The business employs two full time Directors, one full time Boatyard Manager and a part-time Boatyard Assistant from March to October. Additional cleaning staff are employed on changeover days.
With access to one of the best and most beautiful cruising areas in the world, Isle of Skye Yachts has an enviable and loyal customer base, enjoying a high level of repeat business, offering the perfect opportunity for sailing enthusiasts looking for a complete lifestyle change.
The business has won numerous awards over the years, including a Scottish Council for Development & Industry Award – the Crown Estates Award for Excellence in a Marine Business and most recently was nominated for the Best Outdoor/Adventure Experience category at the 2016/2017 Scottish Thistle Awards.
With stunning scenery on your doorstep, hidden beaches, fascinating geological sites, historical ruined castles, beautiful marine life, fantastic cuisine, high quality entertainment and excellent schools, there is plenty for all the family to enjoy around the Isle of Skye and surrounding areas.
Ideally located with access to extensive cruising grounds, Isle of Skye Yachts is based within the village of Ardvasar, close to Armadale on the Sleat Peninsula. There are many local services available within Ardvasar and there is good access by road to the mainland via the Skye Bridge and by road/rail via the Mallaig/Armadale ferry. The rail connection also links with the overnight sleeper from London to Fort William.
This is a truly rare, once in a lifetime opportunity for sailing enthusiasts looking for a complete lifestyle change. In the most idyllic location, the Isle of Skye is a wonderful place to live and the business opportunity is ideal for someone who wants to fully immerse themselves in the great outdoors and all it has to offer.
