Business description

a truly exciting opportunity to acquire a well established and profitable adventure holiday company operating in a niche market and offering truly challenging and one off experiences for their customer base. The founding director started the business in 2005 with the specific objective of combining motorcycling, travel and adventure into a number of holidays designed to challenge the skills and abilities of customers and providing them with a “once in a lifetime” experience that provides a life changing experience not available in the standard holiday market place. Every trip has been meticulously planned, prepared and checked with the appropriate risk assessment being completed for each one. The business now offers a total of seven different trips varying in length from just a fortnight to a lengthy around the world twenty two weeks. Parties vary in size from ten to twelve individuals who are accompanied on the way by a highly trained and experienced back up crew consisting of a team leader, a medical officer and a mechanic. Every motorcycle benefits from a pre programmed route schedule including details of overnight halts, petrol stations and key junction points. The back up crew meets them at daily “way points” and at nightfall at either hotels or campsites for the overnight stops. The support vehicles are specifically equipped for this sort of task and carry an extensive stock of spare parts, and medical equipment. They also have an inverter filtered water system, a battery management system, a fridge plus a large range of hand tools and equipment. Equipment: the company has two well maintained and fully equipped land cruisers complete with heavy duty trailers containing the tents, cooking equipment, spare parts and tools. The fleet of motorcycles were bought new in 2009 and are replaced on a twenty thousand mile change cycle. Customer service: the company does have a database of previous customers many of whom have provided glowing testimonials. Repeat bookings are rare as most clients treat this type of holiday as a once in a lifetime event. However the motorcycling community is a strong networking arena and referrals are a big part of the process. Key strengths: • well established • almost unique in its structure and offering • financially sound • growth market • superb staff • forward bookings with deposits of circa £40,000 growth and expansion: the business is only limited by the number of trips it provides. The present director has limited this to a size and nature that compliment his owns skill sets and requirements. A new owner could easily invest in providing a broader range of trips.
