The vessel is available to purchase as an investment and can stay in the operators fleet based in Fremantle/Perth. She can be provided with on-going bookings. Alternatively she can be sold with her registered name of Island Princess to allow a new owner a fresh start-up. She was modelled and refitted when the current owners purchased her in 2009 to suit demand for a wide range of markets, from event promoters and venue owners to weddings, general function cruises, and corporate events. She gets bookings from a large number of repeat clients, from Corporates such as Qantas and BHP to a raft of festival, venue and nightclub owners. She averages over 150 separate event cruises each year generated primarily via word of mouth and targeted social media marketing. All surveys and certificates are up to date including a Swan River Commercial Permit, DOT jetty useage permits and AMSA Certificate of Survey. Mains 3408 Cat is sound and recenty serviced. On-board 240V is provided by a Konan 27kva Genset. The vessel was previously a Bali - Lombok ferry and is also an exceedingly good offshore boat. She has a custom built DJ console and Pro level JBL speaker system, a BYO bar with 3 door bar fridge, a top level Club Deck lounge with custom moulded lounges and LED lighting. Has a secure pen located ideally just 20 mins from her main pick up point at Barrack St jetty and paid up until July 2018. Surveys 75 pax + 2 crew, 65 pax to Rottnest Island. The owners advise that they are wishing to wind down their involvement in the industry and reduce their workload. Therefore, this is a rare opportunity for a motivated and energetic person to secure a vibrant and exciting space in the marine event and hospitality industry. The vessel price has been reduced and now represents exceedingly good value. Included are a significant number of forward bookings.
