A leading multi-million dollar Amazon sport fishing and adventure company. With 23 years of experience, it is the Amazon’s premiere provider of fishing trips for peacock bass and exotic Amazon gamefish species. The company is a highly respected jungle outfitter that explores the Amazon basin in pursuit of outstanding fisheries and then operates organized, secure and comfortable group sport-fishing trips to these extraordinary locations. With access to a wide range of Amazon destinations, home to the world’s greatest gamefish, the company has successfully grown into an important force in the adventure fishing trip industry that sells over 500 angler trips per year. Will go where others can't or won’t, to give anglers a one-of-a-kind Amazon wilderness adventure. Provides smooth logistics, highly trained long-term staff that provide a very high level of comfort and service. TV Fishing movie stars and their production teams are regular customers.
The company is a solid profit generating mechanism for any buyer with excellent financial history. This opportunity also provides a perfectly synergistic acquisition for, or with, existing outdoor companies, since its equatorial operating season (fall and winter) is complementary to the Northern hemisphere’s warm-weather operating seasons. This enables the company’s existing clientele to also utilize a potential buyer’s services while providing an off-season option for the potential buyer’s clientele.
Since the 2008-2009 recession, the company has grown and outstripped all operators, outfitters and agencies endeavoring to compete in this market. Repeat clientele are over 42% with 714 fishing trips (about $3 MM) currently scheduled, and on the books with deposits in-hand.
The company owns outright or controls exclusively, four trip operations, ensuring access to almost any kind of aquatic environment and providing a broad range of accommodation options.
1. Yacht /Mothership luxury accommodations – Essentially an 80 foot floating hotel, providing elegant and comfortable accommodations for 10 to 20 anglers at a time. Access is by charter aircraft.
2. Fly-in Floating camp – A proven system of air-conditioned mobile cabins trailing a powered kitchen/dining room. The cabins are deployed on Amazon River beaches and provide a comfortable, laid back atmosphere. Access is by Cessna caravan floatplane only.
3 Fixed Lodge – A rustic, air-conditioned jungle lodge built on an island in a river. The lodge is in a protected, exclusive region with contractual fishing rights. Access is by Cessna caravan floatplane only.
4. Safari-style tent camp – Used for remote jungle access, fishing, scientific studies and special explorations.
The company has a management succession plan in place and will more than assist any serious buyer that wants to fully understand and consider acquiring this extraordinary opportunity.
