Description: A new lifestyle awaits! Fishing Charter - Ningaloo Reef
This is a rare opportunity to secure a unique fishing charter business that is located in the coastal town, Coral Bay, just off the
pristine waters of the Ninglaoo Reef. Being one of only two fishing charters in Coral bay, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity to select Mahi Mahi Fishing Charters for your business and lifestyle venture.
Coral Bay is located approx. 1200 km from Perth and is positioned in the Gascoyne Region in the Shire of Carnarvon.
The business operates in the townsite of Coral Bay. The main office/booking centre is located in the central shopping centre Shop 13, Coral Bay Arcade Shopping Centre. The business operates two charter boats named Stormy (Conquest 16.6M vessel) and Southern Comfort (West Coaster 14.6M) both in current survey. The business earns additional revenue, and it operates the only ice works in town which is located adjacent to the main office.
Mahi Mahi Fishing charter has been operated by Bernie Vale and Sandra Lymbery since commencing on 15 May 1998. Both are experienced operators and use a number of casual staff throughout the fishing season. Staff accommodation is provided by the owners as this is a requirement for employment in Coral Bay. Sandra Lymbery runs the office, administrative and accounting side of the operation, and Bernie Vale is the lead skipper of their vessel, Stormy.
A second skipper operates boat number 2. The peak operating season runs from 01 April to 15 October each year. The Christmas period is also a very busy period. Off season is cyclone season and this is when the boats are maintained, surveyed and refitted, the boats are taken to Carnarvon for this purpose.
