Broker Comments:
This is a business that could be operated by an eager keen family or corporate operator.
Average turnover for the business has been in excess of $1m for the last four years and taking account of the coronavirus this past 12 months.
The vessel, plant and business is in excellent condition and trading from a unique position on the Port Adelaide waterfront. There is also ample scope for a new owner to increase business with additional trading hours.

Please direct all inquiries to broker principal Richard Oakley.

Price: $1.9m as a "going concern" excluding GST
