The opportunity to own and operate an excursion charter boat business can begin now with the one-of-a kind 38 foot power motor yacht, "Spirit of Pilar", an exact replica of Ernest Hemingway’s famous 1934 personal offshore fishing boat, “Pilar”.

"Spirit" is Coast Guard approved for 6 people and is the perfect boat for inshore charter fishing, harbor tours, sunset cruises, private parties, dolphin watches and drop anchor swim tours. Modest gross income potential is well over $200,000 annually for an easy 10 months in operation, with low overhead and minimal staff. Relocation is not an issue; it is the optimum size for transporting by truck to be based at any location, for instance, 8 months in Florida, 4 months in New England.

"Spirit of Pilar" has operated for the past five years as part of a charitable foundation in Miami, taking disabled veterans and other mobility challenged young and older people out on the water boating and fishing for free. As a consequence of this work, "Spirit" shows no income history, but the upshot of its activities have been a fulfilling experience and proof of "Spirit’s" accessibility, durability and low maintenance.

Originally planned to be a Hemingway-themed charter program the true magic of "Spirit" is its accessibility features that sets the vessel well above any charter boat competition. It is the most fully accessible yacht in America for those with mobility challenges, including wheelchair use. A custom-designed electric lift mechanism for accessibility to the specially-designed galley and toilet/shower room below makes "Spirit" one of the most unique vessels on the water, opening up the potential for new clientele.
