Overview - Sail & Canvas Business for Sale

First established in 1978 and under current ownership since 2003, this sail and canvas business is located on the central south coast of England and specialises in the production, supply, servicing and repair of yacht and dinghy sails, manufacturing of canvas products and vessel upholstery.

The diverse range of items manufactured by this sail and canvas business includes boat covers, sail bags, sprayhoods, bimini covers and non-marine bespoke commissions. It also provides specialist sails and repair services to the windsurfing and kitesurfing communities.

The business is owned and operated by a family partnership with no additional staff to consider. It occupies separate premises in two locations, the sail loft building which is secured by a rolling annual lease and an unmanned drop-off and collections office situated at a prestigious marina a short drive away. Also in close proximity are other marinas, boatyards and sailing clubs, which together with private individuals and other businesses makes up a loyal client base.

The business has a history of consistent turnover and strong profits but currently trades only 4 days per week from Monday to Thursday and therefore has the potential to expand even further.

Now for sale due to the intended retirement of senior family members, this opportunity will be attractive to private buyers and to the trade as an expansion into a key leisure marine location. All handover support and training will be provided to ensure a successful transition of ownership.
