72ft Vessel and Charter business for sale with current COO - 1C (Reef) for 34 pax; 1D (partially smooth) for 49 pax. Including special GBRMPA permit giving 365 days access to the Whitsunday Planning Area on a daily basis without the requirement to obtain a booking. Permits of this nature are capped and this cap was reached years ago (in the 90's) therefore this type of permit is not issued by GBRMPA anymore and only current permits, like this one, can be used. The business currently is fully booked for remainder of 2021.
The vessel is booked for research charters and diving charters. In the past she has also been used for fishing charters. She could be utilised for many activities with her COO and Special GBRMPA permit including a great backpacker adventure business out of Airlie Beach.

The owner has been involved in seagoing charter businesses for over 25 years and is ready for a tree change. Please contact us for more information.
