Business Description

Sailing yacht charter boat and business for sale in the beutiful US VI

Top grossing day sail yacht and charter business for sale in the beautiful US Virgin Islands. The price has just been reduced as the owner really really wants to retire.

The St. Thomas day sail business is having the best year ever! We did have a bit of a non season after the storms of 2017 but now the day sail business is stronger than ever. The gross sales are above all the previous years numbers. Now is the time to buy this business.

We have all heard “live the dream” but really, you can sail in the Caribbean and get paid to do it!
Meet S/V ‘Lou’, a Classic 41 Rhodes Bounty. She was built in 1960 to exacting standards by Phillip Rhodes who wanted a boat as pretty as a wooden boat, but easier to maintain.

‘Lou’ has been one of the top day sailing boats in St. Thomas since 1998, taking six passengers out to snorkel in the National Park on St. John and nearby islands. We provide everything for our guests; all beverages, a great lunch, snorkel gear and amazing lifetime experiences. Our guests often come back year after year for the fun and adventure of sailing and snorkeling with turtles and rays and too many fish to mention. This could be your boat and your business!

‘Lou’ has garnered a tremendous repeat and referral business from hotels and resorts that took me two decades to build, it can be yours. That, combined with the increasing numbers of cruise ships coming into St. Thomas makes for a very profitable business. St. Thomas came back fast and is the desired destination for cruise ships and on island visitors alike. We are a U.S. territory which makes for easy banking and services.

The business has a terrific web site: and was rated as one of the best sail and snorkel trips by

‘Lou’ has a well situated mooring right off American Yacht Harbor which is great for picking up guests because the taxis drop them right there. I have learned that if you make it easy, they will come!

Being a charter boat, Lou is kept in great shape and has a recent survey as requested by our insurance company and dated 2/08/18. New cockpit cushions make a pretty first impression and leave a lasting impression.

Complete specifications and business details available by request.

Make your dreams come true! Lou will do that for you, just as she has for me. I’m finally retiring from the business and hope to find someone who can carry on with what I have built here, sailing in the beautiful Virgin Islands.
