Broker's Comments

This is a rare opportunity for Boatshed Cornwall to list this marine related water taxi business. The business is a package and includes two coded water taxis, skippers, phone numbers, bookings etc. The main Water Taxi is a Wilson Flyer 23 which is used throughout the year with a back up boat for when it becomes busy.

On arrival at the Water Taxi moorings, I found both boats moored to the pontoon and it appeared they were both prepared for the current season. The Wilson Flyer 23 is the main boat which features in the photos.

Both boats are coded, based on a design category “C”, for up to twelve (12) passengers with area of operation category 5/6.

In addition, the following has been undertaken
Renewed Battery switching - 2023
Engine service - 2022

These boats appear to have been maintained and prepared for the coming season, albeit these are working boats and are in constant use throughout the season. This package is for an ongoing business purchase and will include all that is necessary to seamlessly continue the operation, which includes all of the necessary permits for landing etc.

These boat details are subject to contract.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
