Asking Price:
€250K - €500K Furniture / Fixtures and Inventory / Stock included
Sales Revenue:
€500K - €1M
Cash Flow:
€100K - €250K

We have built a 30 year stellar reputation working exclusively with the yachts and large villas from St Raphael to Monte Carlo. We offer a pick -up and drop- off service in the marinas/ ports and shipyards and are on the speed dial with most captains and Chiefstews that stay on the French coast or visiting superyachts. They know of our high standards and attention to detail , flawless finishes on all linens and couture clothes . everything is hand finished and treated with extreme caution / care in our workshops.

We do not work with the general public, but we have many of the yacht management companies confidence to look after their clients for bedlinens and drycleaning. In recent years we have never had to advertise as we have more work than we can handle during the Summer season. There is a HUGE room for growth but , due to health concerns the present owners need to retire.

Along with the yachting industry , we have another workshop which deals with Villa Rental Linens . May to October there is a huge letting/ rental industry here on the Riveria . Owners do not want to use their linens and towels so , we supply weekly bed linens , towels and other requirements for the rental villas and Villa Management companies . We have garnered a excellent reputation for a reliable service , great quality and competitive prices . We have clients that have worked with us for years with new additions each year as there appears to be a lack of reliable Professional rental companies here , so again there is room for growth in this industry .We have a huge inventory of bedlinens and towels , fold out beds and all the other items to supply our clients for the season.

So depending on circumstance there are two seperate business opportunities here for an ambitious entrepreneur , or couple / family looking for a profitable turn-key business on the French Riviera .The business presently closes only for 2 weeks at Christmas .The industry is growing yearly and the need of our services are growing beyond our capabilities at present , so a new energetic , hard working , business-minded buyer could double our figures with a little innovation . We have the reputation and the know how and the faith of a great number of the yachting community here and the owner would be willing to stay on for a salary to impart all his extensive knowledge and skills on the practical end and also introductions to all the valauble players in this field .

All our Equipment is state of the Art , to do the best job possible with the least time and effort , so highly efficient . We have our own delivery vans . 80% of the business is from April to October , so there is little need for a big staff in the Winter months , so it allows for holidays and time to Wind down , but there would be no reason to be productive through the whole year if you were to venture into hôtels doing curtains etc. This is only a small slice of the industry!!
