To many, an attraction of this parasailing business is that all of its profits are made in a five month period. This one has consistently made over $100,000 per year and the asking price is just $149,000. “PAPO (Professional Association of Parasail Operators) certified boat captains are relatively easy to hire, so the new owner does not even have to be a captain the first year,” says Mark Richie of Sunbelt. In an economic environment where there are a higher than normal amount of underperforming businesses, this parasailing business earns the “Feature” status because it is such a good value.
We asked Richie, Sunbelt Raleigh’s owner, why this business continues to perform in an otherwise weak economy. “It is the culture here that we go to the beach to vacation. Some vacationers are restricted from going due to the economy, but many are going to the beach instead of a more expensive vacation. A parasailing adventure can be the highlight of the vacation and people aren’t giving that up. The owner runs this business well with systems in place and a perfect safety record.”
