A Marinas For Sale Marketplace

Asset and Business Sale Advisory

Approach


Our deep contacts give our clients superior access within the marine industry. When it comes to selling a marina or marine business we are able to access strategic buyers and marine focused entrepreneurs through our customized approach to the market. We build and maintain long-term relationships not only with our clients but also with established ownership groups and industry professionals.


As a business seller you are assured outstanding professional service. Our clients benefit from the highest level of market insight and business advisory throughout every step of the divestment process. Whether you are exiting an investment or selling a legacy business, we assist our clients in realizing the full value of their assets.


Our initial steps include an assessment of value of the assets and business. Among other valuation items we focus specifically on cash flow analysis - isolating business segments and their respective cash flows to optimize realization of value. Every marina and marine enterprise is different. There is no single method for valuing this asset class. Based on our experience we use a cross section of valuation methods, adopting the most applicable methods for each unique business. We make every effort to involve our clients in the valuation process to leverage our perspective with their operational insight.


Once valuation is complete we advise clients in bringing the business to market in concert with their goals and objectives. We customize our approach to the market for each business to leverage the powerful marketing channels we have established. In connection with the valuation we produce a comprehensive Offering Memorandum that captures the unique qualities of a business including valuable industry perspectives.


Experience


When approached by a prospective buyer our seller clients benefit from our experience once again. Through careful selection and diligence we bring forward the most qualified buyers. Our advisors have extensive knowledge in negotiating and valuing floor plan, existing inventory, and business assets. As a benefit to our seller client we work with both parties to facilitate pre-transaction diligence and post-closing ownership transition.


While experience matters, so do results. MarinaSales has closed numerous multi-million dollar transactions in the past decade in marina and marine related business.
