You'll be someone with a background in sailing and will have an extensive knowledge
of boats and ships and what makes each model different. You'll carry several
styles of boats for people with differing budgets. Speaking you your customer
and listening to their needs, you'll then suggest a model that suits what they
want to do be it cruising, skiing, scuba diving or just fishing.
If you have a couple of existing boats available, then you could lease your
boats to customers who may just need a boat for just a day or a few weeks. You'll
want to make sure your boats are sea-worthy and fully equipped for emergencies.
This includes everything from first aid kits to fully working radio to life-jackets.
Make sure your customers understand the basics about operating the boat and
know what to do in case of emergencies. You'll want your customers to sign a
disclaimer to ensure that you cannot be held responsible for any accidents or
injury as a result of their actions on the boat. Of course, you'll want to be
covered by insurance for any unexpected damages to your boats and also for any
injuries to your customers.
All in all, this is a good business especially if you're in a tropical country
where there are no winter months. Your boats will then be operational all year
round and that means money sailing to you all year!
