REF 7456 – Relocatable Closed Cafe In Converted Heritage Foot Ferry Boat
Blacks Business Brokers are pleased to bring to the market this fully relocatable closed cafe in a converted heritage foot ferry boat, currently located in Somerset.

Our client purchased this superb heritage boat in 2016 and has since lovingly converted it into a café with a large amount of refurbishment. The cafe is fully equipped and ready to open. It would suit a hardstanding in an area of a new owner’s choice with space around it for additional seating.

The boat is currently located in Somerset and will remain there for viewing, a new owner will need to re-site the boat when the sale is complete.

The business idea our client had in mind was designed to suit a hands-on owner-operator but sadly due to our client’s ill health the business has not been opened and therefore this opportunity has become available.

This mahogany on oak heritage boat was built in the 1920’s and measures 15 metres by 3 metres. It has been carefully redesigned and refurbished to create a unique café with the engine removed to allow space for seating. Our client has invested in new hardwood windows and doors, replacement hull planks and a full interior refit with new kitchen installation. The boat has been repainted inside and out and has been fitted with a locally built spiral steel staircase at the entrance.

Our client has created an incredible opportunity to open a unique cafe in a venue of a new owner’s choice. The cafe could accommodate any cuisine and given the right marketing and positioning, it will attract a wide range of customers of any age. There is also the opportunity to have the cafe dry standing it does not necessarily have to be on the water, it would just be a case of a new owner locating an appropriate plot of land to put the cafe on. This proposition would ideally suit an owner operating team able to launch this business and benefit from the fabulous renovation of this wonderful boat. Early viewings are strongly advised.
