First time on the market and offering multiple options for the investor or owner/operator

Offering for sale is a substantial, architectural building designed and engineered to sit on rotating pontoons with current permit to operate a cafe/restaurant and seafood retail business from a prime mooring position in the centre of Lakes Entrance.

The sale includes the floating structures and the 2 businesses as going concerns – the iconic Ferryman’s Seafood Cafe and the complimenting Ferry Sea Foods. Turnover for both businesses exceeds $2,000,000 per year with room for improvement.

Total building area in excess of 430 square meter consisting of :

  • Upper deck (Ferryman’s Cafe) approx 208 sqm
  • Lower deck (Ferry Sea foods) approx 152 sqm
  • Auxiliary floating barge with extra freezer, cool room, process room & laundry approx 72 sqm

This is a substantial asset that will need over a million dollar to replace.

This rare opportunity offers :

  • Opportunity to secure long term lease of waterway of over 900sqm
  •  Access to source fresh seafood directly from the local fishing fleet (largest in Victoria)
  • To tap into the growing tourism market - both local and international
  • Keep both businesses with view to improve them further
  • For those seeking a less hands on role, sell one or both businesses and retain the right to ongoing rental income from both businesses
  • A visionary new owner could also take advantage of the uniqueness of the floating venue and introduce new food and hospitality concept across both floors

Training and transition will be based on mutual agreement.

This is truly an opportunity for the person seeking something that is rarely available in the market, with direct access to the water.
