Business Description
Veritas Business Sales offer for sale this established and well respected Tourist Road Train business which is located in Fowey. The business was established 15 years ago by the current owner and is now being offered for sale so that he can enjoy a well deserved retirement.
Since ownership my client has made continual investment in maintaining the carriage and train. The Road Train (Land Rover Defender 05 Plate) is fully serviced which is a huge plus for any new purchaser as additional funds will not need to be spent for some time. The business is owner operated and employs the help of 4 part time members of staff. They trade from the beginning of May until the end of September and has an annual turnover of £36,000 with a very healthy net profit (trading from May 1st - September 30th). Fowey Road Train is the only licenced tourist road train allowed to operate within the town and has a capacity to carry 19 passengers. The tour enables visitors to see so much more of Fowey taking in some spectacular views at a cost of £5.00 per head. A full training and handover period will be given to any prospective purchaser.
We believe that there is further potential to increase trade by extending upon the current opening hours during the summer months and introducing a much more vigorous advertising and marketing campaign along with addition of a more comprehensive website. The business already enjoys a strong reputation within the local community and is seen as a benefit to the town. Because of this the business has a high level of recommendations with regular and repeat trade from returning tourists.
