Property information

Real Estate:

Real Property Included


Located in Playas del Coco, or Coco Beach, about 30 minutes from the Liberia International Airport.

Premises Details:

Home office, local hotels and tour vendors sell our tours, but I would say 90% of our bookings come directly from the customers who book online through our website. has a mooring in Bahia Coco (we own it, no monthly or annual fees,) and the marina Papagayo is here in gulf when we need to fill the tanks.

Business Operation

Expansion Potential:

No limit here. You could expand by adding more boats in this area and surrounding Costa Rica locations. Tourism and expats moving to this area is not slowing down in the least. Guancaste and El Coco are the perfect areas for a sailing business. High end hotels and backpackers alike can enjoy sailing the Gulf of Papagayo, where there's usually no shortage of winds and breezes to fill the sails. There is a wonderful expat community here with people from the USA, Canada, Europe, South America, Russia and we really enjoy the mixed cultures all living here in harmony with the locals.

Competition / Market:

There are a couple other sailboats, catamarans and sport fishing yachts. We all stay busy, and we send each other business when, for example, we're booked a full day private tour and are unable to take out some guests who are looking for something to do on their last day in the country, we will send them to other boats and they do the same for us. We help each other on the water and in business. We have great relationships with our competition.

Reasons for selling:

The owners have retired.

1 captain is on salary and we will hire at least 1 crew and max 3 crew. We have a list of people we can call as needed.
Years established:
