After building up our business for the last 5 years, we unfortunately have to leave because of family circumstances. Our big dive boat has been built especially for diving and has 2 marine toilets, 2 fresh water showers, a Bauer compressor with filling ribs, life jackets, oxygen, first aid kit, 2 engines with 2 gear boxes, radio, GPS and Depth/fish finder on it. We have 6 15 Liter steel tanks, 2 small baby tanks and 65 12 Liter aluminum tanks, which have all just been hydro-static and visual inspected. We have 30 regulators, 30 bcds, 60 wet suits and many fins and masks and snorkels. All of which has been newly serviced. Our 4 different websites work really well and our Facebook (2 different ones) site generates many requests for diving. We are high on Tripadvisor and have been 5 stars with them for the last 4 years. All licenses (TAT, boat, captains, engineers, Marine park) are in place and we have 6 work permits for our dive center. Our new office building was built and opened last year and has 2 classrooms, a toilet/shower, one bedroom, 1 giant wet room, 1 office and 1 outside bar and logbook seating area. We have a lease contract for 15 years. Behind the dive center is a directors house with 1 bedroom, 1 kitchen/IDC classroom, 1 backoffice, 1 stoor room, 1 living room and 2 toilets with warm water shower.
Reason for Selling:
* new road being built on Koh Lanta this year * new bridge to Koh Lanta Noi should be finished in another 5 years * Krabi is now an international airport * more and more Asian visitors find Koh Lanta (since our first bridge is finished already) * 300m2 land behind the shop is still empty. you could build a house and pool or resort here * there are a Swedish school, an International School, a language school and a local school on the island. Soon the International School will also start a High school (International) on Koh Lanta). * Koh Lanta has only 15 dive centers on the island and is Thailand’s 4rd biggest island. In comparison: Koh Tao is much smaller and has over 65 dive centers, Phi Phi is much smaller and has over 35 dive centers. * there are around 35 different dive sites in this area with a great diversity of fish life and corals, even some manta’s and whalesharks passing by here in the main season * now we have a 7 months season, of which 5 months are really busy. It should be possible to take this to 8 months season and 7 months really busy with more Chinese, Malaysian, Indian, Japanese or Singaporean divers * we just became a 5 star IDC Center, so you could also start teaching IDC’s here in the main season and use this to fill up the rainy season.
