5 Star Sailing Catamaran Charter business for sale as a going concern. Business includes 43ft luxury catamaran and sign written 4XD. Owners reluctantly retiring, but prepared to offer their services as skipper and booking agent/ book keeper for the next season if required. A turn key operation with forward bookings. Owners would consider selling vessel only.

This successful and profitable business has been operating 6 years doing commercial charters on Sydney Harbour such as corporate events, parties, whale watching and sail training. The 43 ft catamaran is in current AMSA survey for 2C (12 Pax plus 2 crew) and 1E (34 Pax plus 2 crew) and is currently operating under an approved Covid plan and is a very popular vessel on Sydney Harbour. Charter numbers have increased over successive years and the business has considerable capacity to grow and expand over future years. This is a fantastic opportunity to enter the yacht charter world on a modern, luxury, performance catamaran.

Touche 5 is a luxury performance catamaran designed by Ian Farrier and built to a very high standard to USL standards by Grant Butler.

* Generous cockpit and forward lounging areas most suitable for charters

Touche`5 has been built to a very high standard and it would be a challenge to find a Farrier 43 to match her. These boats were first built in 2002 and impressed from the start with comfort and speed. Further refinements were made true to the Farrier principles. The saloon is slightly higher and wider than design spec which was later adopted by Farrier in subsequent designs. This boat is built to USL code and material used is Corecell foam, woven glass of various weaves and epoxy resin supplied by ATL Composites. High density Corecell was used inhigh stress areas. The layout comprised three double cabins and one single with ample storage. Single helm station offers two flexible positions, quality Harken deck hardware and Allyacht rotating mast are testiment to the commitment the owner has made to using the best equipment throughout the build
