Business Overview:

Be self-sufficient, profitable and permanently on vacation in Key West, with optional Cape Cod summers!

This unique luxury charter business is ideal for a couple that loves to entertain while having loads of fun in a sub-tropical paradise! Be the envy of the tourists as you live the marina lifestyle in your large, air-conditioned queen-sized stateroom while between charters. Answer emails and phone calls from your online advertising and run your bookings through the website. Board your guests right from your rented dock space. Enjoy your day charter or multi-day trip with up to 6 people in 3 queen-sized ensuite staterooms for a profit. This charter business is now running like clockwork for ten months a year without risk of a hurricane to slow you down! Are you ready to come and take over at the helm?

We have successfully created itineraries and menus for both Key West and Cape Cod that will keep people smiling and praising you, whether it's just a 2 hour sunset sail or up to 6 days of unbelievable fun and adventure even when sometimes outside of cellular data range! Our satelitte phone is always on and transmitting our position on a map on our website so we are never out of touch. We have tracks and waypoints for all the great spots for doing fun activities while serving meals right on time!

It's really quite easy, just drive the boat to the reef to pick up a mooring ball and go swimming and snorkeling with your guests. All of the equipment is in very good condition, and we've found the type of gear that is both comfortable and lasts a long time. We even have an exterior shower to rinse off the seawater afterwards. We have about 90 feet of lifeline to use as clothesline for drying towels and swimming suits.

Take scuba dives on the reef or wrecks around the Florida Keys or in the Dry Tortugas National Park. We have a commercial use authorization for chartering there. We even have a special product called the "Dry Tortugas Express Option," which decreases the amount of time needed for the guests to get there and increases profitability for you. The boat is equipped with a watermaker and dive compressor for long live aboard trips.

Catch groupers and snappers on a state charter boat fishing license, release them or keep them for later if you want. We have all of the fishing equipment you need to entertain up to four fisherman on the aft platform at one time. The "sugar scoops" are ideal for getting close to the fish for pictures before releasing the smaller yellowtails and grunts.

Later in the day, get them to help raise the sails and play music on the six speaker stereo for your guests before they relax and nap in the shaded bean bag lounge area on the front trampolines. Sail them into our proven safe and secluded anchorage spots to set the anchor for a stable night.

Lead a paddle tour on kayaks and SUPs through the mangroves or up to a secluded beach or drive a fast tender around to entertain them for a couple of hours. Sometimes people just enjoy catching the small fish or nurse sharks while on anchor.

Late in the afternoon, have a cocktail with the guests and tell them some salty stories. Sit with your guests and plan the next day's activties while dining in the covered cockpit table under the stars. Sometimes after dinner there is bioluminescence in the water, or we can see the milky way and, every so often, shooting stars!

See the website for a description of the day charters and live aboard trips.

The LLC and vessel are attached to the licenses, permits and leases for Key West, the Dry Tortugas National Park and Cape Cod, Barnstable County, Massachusetts. The boat has been completely refit by a Purdue Mechanical Engineer over the past 3 years with a spreadsheet showing all the new parts and labor performed. The engines have been replaced in 2017 and only have 1600 hours on them. According to our broker who specializes in catamarans, this the most valued 2004 Leopard 47 on the market.

USCG 6-pack Captain's License is required. We will train you on all the rest!

This truly is a dream job. We made a lot of friends and will miss that part, but it's time to retire.
