How would you like a real sea change conducting fishing charters to the magnificent Swain Reefs east of Gladstone in Queensland. " Eastern Voyager " is an 85' Steel Charter Vessel offering 3 to 14 day charters and beyond to the Great Barrier Reef, Coral Sea and Shoalwater Bay. Currently operating with AMSA Certifcate of Survey and Certificate of Operation for 1B - 22 passengers or 30 people. She was originally built as a Southern Ocean Trawler and was converted into a very comfortable and safe offshore fishing and diving charter vessel in 2007. This vessel is for sale as a going concern including GBRMPA permit, forward bookings, 5 fishing dories with outboards and all the equipment presently on board to continue working with a new owner. The present skipper and crew are prepared to stay on and keep running the vessel as they have been for the previous 10 years. The current owner is only selling as he intends to retire and move down south to a cooler climate.
This long-range boat charting service has secured $3-4m in forward revenue till 2026. With a premium and well-maintained vessel this business generated EBITDA returns of $700k in FY23 with revenue:of $1.8m
