Details
This custom power catamaran named YKnot and its attached long running business has made itself famous on the Port Stephens waterways offering various charter and ferry options to a steady, daily influx of new visitors and Port Stephens locals through its multiple offerings.

The offerings include daily, scheduled trips back and forth to the Tea gardens area from d'Albora Marina in Nelson Bay, sunset cruises, private charters and hen parties.

Annually the business is proven to return net profit of $250,000 to its owners, and provides an owner and crew scope to enjoy meeting people and cruise the the picturesque waterways of Port Stephens in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, while still making genuine coin. Many of the integral crew are keen to stay on and maintain the ongoing experience, meaning a new owner can step into the business with continued processes and earning, learn from its current crew before deciding if improvements need to be made for more profitability or better experiences.

YKnot was custom built for the purposes of inviting 36 people (with potential for 45) on board a stable platform that is great for entertaining with high efficiency and safety iin mind. She is efficient thanks to the Volvo D255 55 HP shaft drive diesels that use just 3-5 litres a side giving you speeds of 7-10 knots. Switch off an engine and still maintain 8 knots, halving fuel and engine load.

In survey for 48 people this fine vessel is flat and easy to move around internally and forward on deck, there is enough room for guests to enjoy the outdoors in fine weather or come inside and enjoy protection from the well thought out deck and side structure. Y knot comes with a dedicated galley below to port with all equipment for preparing food, a central snack station on the main deck and an upper help pod perfect for navigation the waterways while staying out of the weather and from the guests enjoying themselves. There are dual heads to starboard and in either hull there is plenty of room to access the engines, generator and other mechanics.

Built in aluminium, this vessel is light and strong, the stainless steel rails and other components meet AMSA survey requirements and keep guests and crew safe on board.

Having been on the vessel for trips to tea Gardens in the lovely Port Stephens area we can say the vessel is perfectly suited to its job and with the limited ongoing maintenance required should give new owners the perfect platform to step into a fun business on a profitable vessel that has the goodwill and expected bookings to make this an easy business buying opportunity that can make money from day one, and give owners a nice experience of providing a good life service with plenty of scope to upgrade the business and further take over this space and more in the Port Stephens area.

Full financials and inspections are available to genuine buyers.
