When it comes to those business ideas that really flourish once launched, a little out-of-the-box thinking does the trick and thinking out of the box really isn’t as hard as it is made out to be. There is no need to re-invent the wheel, even though it would probably make for a welcome adventure to venture into a business area not often first thought of by the masses.
For a prospective boat chartering business, a second hand boat for sale is probably all one needs to get started. This branch of the overall tourism and leisure industry has some serious potential, proving to be very lucrative for those willing to firstly consider getting into it and, secondly, those who are willing to put in the little effort required to get started.
Once the structure is up and running, every knot sailed equals money in the bank, with the added allure of the owner’s own enjoyment, if they are into sailing themselves and tag along for the ride.
The vast potential attained in the simple, initial act of buying a second hand boat for sale, spreads beyond the provision of that boat for tourism and leisure purposes only though, with various types of clients naturally seeking to charter a boat. Possible client lists could be comprised out of business people, intimate cruise parties or even celebrities urgently looking for a boat.
If one is just starting out in the boat charter business, or indeed if they are seeking to expand their existing boat charter business, used boats should be the first consideration, for two reasons. One, used boats are cheaper (naturally) and they can be refurbished and cleaned to look brand new, and two, used boats in your fleet give your chartering business instant credibility, in that it appears as if you’ve been in the game for a long time, as long as the boats are not dingy-looking and completely run-down.
Either way, boat charter is a promising business, especially considering that just one repeat-client could virtually make the entire business lucrative.
Now, it may seem like a bit of a bridge that’s too far to try and get to for an individual seeking to cross over into becoming an active player in the business of travel, but that would only be the case if you’re thinking about it from the point of view of an individual.
Think along the lines of crowd-funding in a bid to raise the right amount of capital to start a boat charter business, or to buy into an existing boat charter business structure. Look, if tens of thousands of people from all over the country can claim the same £10 no deposit bonus you redeemed for your online betting exploits, clearly there’s a market for tens of thousands of people to want to get involved in the funding of something like a boat charter business. You don’t even need to give anything like equity away, but rather just something like a gift voucher which can be redeemed or transferred by the people who chip in to help micro-fund the venture.
