Bellmore, NY (PRWEB) October 26, 2010 –
American Boat Listing, a leading advertiser of used boats, is proud to announce the company has been hired by the owner of Las Olas Gondola, Pierre Meunier, to sell his unique 36-foot motorized, canopied gondola, Romantic Venice and accompanying business in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
Meunier chose American Boat Listing because of the company’s extensive inventory of boats for sale as well as its expertise in selling rare and unique vessels. In 2006, American Boat Listing sold one of the original SS Minnows used on the TV show Gilligan’s Island.
American Boat Listing Senior Accounts Manager, Howard Solow, said, "I was thrilled when Mr. Munier contacted us. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone who is a young or semi-retired captain to enjoy the freedom and personal satisfaction that comes from owning your own business. Pierre has informed be that the business already has an existing clientele and comes with a professionally designed website that includes an 800 number, call tracking system and much more."
Meunier founded Las Olas Gondola two years ago in Fort Lauderdale, a city advertised as the “Venice of America.” There, he introduced a true Venetian gondola. Having experimented with smaller gondolas on small canals, Meunier found that the boat navigated too close to the houses on each side of the canal, leaving no privacy for the passengers. That is when he introduced the Romantic Venice, a covered, motorized gondola that could access any water from the New River to the Intracoastal Waterway.
Gondolas in the U.S. are fairly rare. In fact, Meunier says, there are only 40 of them, mostly in California. The Romantic Venice is the only one in the state of Florida, making it an exclusive opportunity.
The Romantic Venice has been featured in several TV shows, videos and films. It is very popular with tourists, but also in high demand locally for special events such as wedding proposals, birthdays, anniversaries, as well as corporate functions.
Needless to say, the Romantic Venice is a one of kind opportunity to enjoy a piece of Northern Italy in Ft. Lauderdale. A lucky entrepreneur can buy an exciting turnkey business as well as a beautiful vessel that has come to symbolize romance and happiness.
