The Seawind 1260 has last week won Cruising World’s prestigious “Boat of the Year” for 2019. With that in mind, it’s a great time to update you on a few programmes to help bring this boat within reach. It might be more cost-effective to buy one than you think…
You’ve decided to start your very own day charter business, and are already getting excited about making sailing your business. We congratulate you! Making the business a reality is not overly complicated – but it takes some planning. The busy season will be here sooner than you may think…
Day charter revolves around a boat to fit the location, clients, and your business
Through the new Seawind 1160 Resort, some exciting new businesses have opened – delivering their owners a great return on investment, but also the opportunity to work doing what they love. Here we wanted to feature 2 businesses that receive rave reviews from guests, and deliver a sustainable and growing business model – indeed some of these businesses already have another boat on order!
Who wouldn’t want to spend their days on the water, meeting friendly holidaymakers, making new friends and doing what makes you happy? The 1160 Resort KURU owned by City of Darwin Cruises carries up to 43 guests. Learn more about this successful charter model
City of Darwin Cruises, and their 1160 Resort KURU has been an instant success. One of the first new 1160 Resorts ordered, KURU is featured in our 1160 Resort video and comes perfectly equipped to explore Darwin Harbour and the region. City of Darwin Cruises offer “a unique eco-sailing and history experience of Darwin” but they also run corporate events, weddings, and kids parties.
Eco-tourism is a buzzword in today’s charter market, but with a new Seawind 1160 RESORT that’s not just hype – the boat can come equipped with a revolutionary electric drive system that eliminates emissions and helps your business show the natural environment, without contributing to harming it. Electric propulsion isn’t just an environmental issue – it’s an economic one as well. Day charter catamarans see a lot of use in an active, busy business. Fuel consumption is an important consideration. And, when financing a catamaran for business purposes, it could be important to shift those costs away from ongoing running costs in the form of fuel.
Perhaps you are eager to exit the 9 to 5 grind. Maybe you’re looking for a lifestyle change – or just a change of pace. Perhaps it’s an opportunity to be your own boss.
Whatever your reason for wanting to start your very own day charter business, we applaud you. Who wouldn’t want to spend their days on the water, meeting friendly holidaymakers, making new friends and doing what makes you happy? But what can appear at first to be a long off dream, we can make a reality – and sooner than you may think.
