A MESSAGE from the Owner

“I had the money and I was hoping to buy a dive center quick, but it took me over ONE YEAR to find something suitable.
I realized that there is no real platform on the Internet for owners to present their diving businesses.
The Seller told me later that he had advertised everywhere for nearly ONE YEAR before I found him...”

So why is it, that dive shop owners having a hard time finding buyers
And why is it so difficult to find a nice dive center for sale or dive boat to buy?

Here are the reasons:

  • -     There is no real platform on the internet for buyers and sellers of dive centers and boats (at least none which is accessible for everybody).
  • -     Most Business Brokers have very little knowledge about the diving industry. They do however charge high commissions of up to 20%. The fees for a dive center of 100,000 USD can be as high as 20,000 USD. This drives sellers away from brokers.
  • -     Advertisement in dive magazines. Only a small percentage of people who are interested in investing in a dive center, read dive magazines.
  • -     In fact, many potential buyers have never dived before and are just looking for a change in their life or just a plain, straight-forward investment!

There are plenty more reasons and problems which make it difficult to get the word out that a dive center is up for sale.
If you are dive shop owner, you are in for a big surprise when you find out how many out there are willing to buy your
dive center and pay YOU what you are asking for.

Why invest in a dive center???

  • -     The advantages of having your own dive center in the tropics are obvious: beautiful weather, meet new people, experience a new culture….all by making money :- )
  • -     If you are more interested in a dive center nearby where you live; a diving business involves exciting travel planning, meeting new people, organization learning and teaching, and travelling to the world's most beautiful places.
  • investment
  • -     Buy a dive center as an investment, even if you do not want to be involved in the operation itself. Some sellers will be willing to stay and work for you. Many owners have a management team in place already, which runs the business for them.
    Enjoy an exciting, profitable business, while visiting your dive center during your holidays and enjoy FREE diving :- )
  • -     The travel and tourism industry is fast growing. Dive organizations, such as PADI, NAUI, SSI and others spend millions every year in advertisement to attract new divers. After a long worldwide recession, people do invest in active holidays again. Scuba Diving is still the most popular and affordable sport among holiday makers.

Why sell your dive center?

  • -     If you bought or built up your dive center long time ago when you were a diver or a dive instructor, you probably now have made good experiences and stacked away some cash.
  • -     As fun as owning and running a dive center is, there is a whole world out there which you might want to explore. As hard as it might be to let go from your dive center, changes are good.
  • -     Who knows – the new owner might give your center a complete new facelift, introduce new business strategies and boost sales.
