Boat Valeting Business for Sale

This is an excellent and one-off opportunity to acquire a well established professional boat valeting business covering the Solent area of south coast of England.

The business currently offers boat valeting services including RIBs, Powerboats and Yachts and is genuinely offered for sale as the owner is now relocating abroad.

RIB & Powerboat Valeting was originally founded in 2008 and has since built up such a fantastic reputation and steady client base that, at present, no advertising is currently undertaken - an opportunity the new owner may want to pursue in order to further increase profits. Currently the business benefits greatly from repeat contracts, a word of mouth referrals and recommendations of our many happy customers.

The asking price includes a signwritten 2002 registered Ford Galaxy MPV with full tax and MOT (+set of winter & summer tyres). Also cleaning equipment including 1 Karcher cold pressure washer, 1 hot pressure washer, 1 Numatic carpet cleaner, 1 vacuum cleaner,1 Silverline compounding/polishing machine, 5m aluminium polishing scaffold/tower, 1 Earlex blower/hoover, 1 mouse sander, 3 tonne trolley jack, chemicals, buckets and other cleaning tools are all included in the sale. The total value of assets comes to about 4000.

Our net profits have been increasing yearly since 2010 and accounts for the year to 05 April 2012 show sales of 30,803 with adjusted net profits of 20,791(67,5% of annual T/O). Previous year 05 April 2011 sales 27,652 and profits 17,492 (63,3% of annual T/O).

Please note most of this revenue is earned during high season (March-November) which leaves time for other activities during winter months.

The two largest clients are worth approximately 15,000 per year which ensures a secure spread of income.

The business could be ideal for a couple or partnership who can fully maximise the potential on offer while at the same time offering an immediate income stream or could also make an excellent acquisition to expand an existing similar type of business.

The telephone number and client details will also be transferred making this a fantastic opportunity to continue trading with immediate effect.

More importantly, full handover with up to 4 weeks of training would be provided to ensure smooth transition and an opportunity for the new owner to learn all the technical know-how which gives our company a real competitive edge in the industries it serves.

Up and running website, company logo and a supply of business cards are also included in the sale.

All financial information will be made available to seriously interested purchasers.

And of course the new owner would be wise to invest an extra 100 in trade membership here since they'll have a wealth of potential clients!
