Verve presents an exceptional opportunity to secure a luxury charter operation aboard a beautiful Leopard 48 catamaran.

Ideally suited to business-minded sailors, high-end brands, chefs, hospitality innovators or visionary individuals who dream of operating successful lifestyle business on the water, Verve is a rare and exciting package.

The immaculate and highly spec'd Leopard 48 is being sold with its successful charter business, which includes a NSW and VIC liquor licence.

Her sole owners undertook the lengthy and complex certification process, commencing at the very construction of the yacht in South Africa, to obtain the highly coveted 1D and 2C surveys. These exclusive surveys permit Verve to carry up to 45 passengers in smooth waters, and up to eight people for open-water charters.

The catamaran was then delivered to Australia by ship rather than sailed from South Africa's shipyard, and she has always been maintained to the highest standards. Verve has been set up to be sailed singlehandedly and has only ever been skipped by the present owner.

Currently moored in the Docklands of Melbourne, Verve has a luxury brand image and can be seen from many CBD and Docklands high-rises, making it an ideal branding showcase. The business includes full liquor licence for VIC and NSW, for ultimate onboard entertainment and financial return on investment. The galley features specialised catering equipment, extra fridges and freezers for onboard catering.

Verve's operations include corporate events, private luxury parties and special occasions, the Whitsunday Islands for Airlie Beach Race Week Spectator cruises and New Year's Eve on Sydney Harbour, just to name a few. The business also includes a new website, featuring enticing photographs, promotional brochures and booking functionality.

This Leopard 48 is a very rare three-cabin owners' version, with a dedicated owners' hull that has a spacious cabin, office, storage space and ensuite. The second hull has two double cabins, each with a private ensuite.

The expansive saloon features comfortable lounge seating and dining table (which converts to a king-size bed), bar, and skipper's chart table. The saloon opens to both forward and rear outdoor entertainment areas. The U-shaped galley is fully equipped for onboard catering and storage.

Verve boasts excellent natural lighting and all-round visibility throughout the boat, while her air conditioning has separate climate zones for ultimate onboard comfort.

This is a unique and exceptional business opportunity with enormous potential to further service the luxury corporate market. It is a going concern turn-key business with existing clients and new website, is easy to operate with minimum casual staff, and offers a dream marine lifestyle on a great vessel.

Multihull Solutions can assist with relocation of this vessel to your port of choice, including providing various quotations for shipping or delivery crew and managing the process.
