Business Description

Excellent reputation in ideal boating location

Successful canvas and sail-making business for sale in Oriental, NC. Located on the Neuse River along the ICW half way between New York and Miami. This is a beautiful area of farmland, woodlands and water with a small but vibrant community at the confluence of 5 creeks that flow into the Neuse. The climate is mild year round, mitigated by the Gulf Stream just offshore. We started the business here in Oriental over 26 years ago and have an excellent reputation for high quality and personal service. We bend our own frames, build custom dodgers, bimini tops and enclosures as well as covers and interiors.We also have an excellent dealer relationship with Doyle Sailmakers and a full service sail making and repair department. We have over 45 years in the sail and canvas industry and would love to share our knowledge with a new generation of crafters that enjoy seeing a beautiful product made with their own hands and skills. A year round boating community as well as transient cruisers form a sizable customer base. Multiple well regarded boatyards contribute to the draw of this area. Our 2,400 sq. ft. shop was designed and built for this business, with a raised cutting floor and 5 machines in pits. We are fully climate controlled. Business purchase includes equipment and inventory. Building on .6 acre with municipal water/sewer and plenty of parking is separately negotiable for either long term lease or purchase
