Re: Catamaran & Day Charter business

Sorry, we have been full time liveaboards for 22 years and have no intention of moving back on land until we can't physically get on board our boat! Hopefully that's a long time away.

Re: Catamaran & Day Charter business

We might be interested. Can you provide more details of the charter business? Passengers per trip, passengers per month, turnover, profit, where does the business come from, where and how do you market/advertise, etc. Can you provide management accounts?
