Whitsunday Sailing Investment


Whitsunday Sailing Investment

Independent Business Airlie Beach 4802, QLD $370,000

Invest in a lifestyle business opportunity and sale the Whitsundays with Mary Ann – Leopard 38, under continued charter management with Cumberland Charter Yachts (CCY). The current arrangements and income generated will enable you to sail the Whitsundays without the cost of maintaining and housing the boat, or the headaches of running the business. All you do is turn up and sail.

The current owner engages CCY to manage bookings and arrangements of the boat for bareboat hire and all maintenance including berthing. The business pays for itself and you get to own a beautiful yacht and all of the experiences that go with it.

The Experience:

Imagine the gentle lapping of water against your bedroom wall lulling you to sleep as you dream of the scenic views you took in for the day from your floating hotel room. Experience star-filled nights in tranquil anchorages, visit secluded bays, explore rainforest-covered islands or sun yourself on world-famous Whitehaven Beach. Snorkel the fringing coral of the Great Barrier Reef and come face to face with abundant marine life. Be amazed as sunsets compete, trying to outdo the day before, and your only worry is which direction the wind is coming from. Set your own pace and plan your own itinerary, confident of the backup and support only a radio call away from CCY and the team of qualified professional mariners.

The Yacht:

Mary Ann is a cutting-edge cruising catamaran designed for performance and comfort, offering an abundance of outdoor space to sail the warm breezes of the tropics. She features a large cockpit with an outside dining area and versatile ergonomic seating for up to eight guests. A functional hard-top bimini protects the cockpit area and a canvas cover over the helm station, where all the mainsail controls are conveniently located. Powerboat-style open transoms really make boarding easy.

Other neat features include an easy-to-use anchoring system with electric windlass, a convenient dinghy davit with electric winch, and twin brand new 29Hp diesel engines for good motoring performance. The galley-up design incorporates a spacious saloon area and aft-facing galley with a serving window overlooking the adjoining cockpit area. Large vertical windows forward provide excellent shade and rain protection. Accommodations include four double cabins and two forepeak berths, great for kids or additional storage, and two large heads with dedicated shower compartments.

Mary Ann presents in great condition. She has been impeccably maintained by CCY since 2015 and full maintenance history is available. She is dry-docked annually, anti-fouled, hull polished and all repairs completed. Engines replaced in January 2021.
