Fancy living life on the water, sipping cocktails on the deck with a scenic backdrop of Manchester? Well, now you can. The luxury canal boat in Manchester, The Vätten Hüs, which has been a popular stay on Airbnb is up for sale.
An Airbnb that is something out of the ordinary, not just a stay away but an experience away, The Vätten Hüs is one like no other. Moored in the beautiful tranquil waters of Castlefield, this floating penthouse is in fact 70ft long and double the average width of narrowboats meaning it offers an abundance of space and makes it far larger than your usual hotel room.
The luxury canal boat in Manchester accommodates up to six guests in two plush king-sized bedrooms that are adorned with flowers, with additional sleeping space in the main collective area. It boasts of a large, open-plan kitchen-dining and living-room with the most incredible dried floral display, each room is richly furnished and leads to exclusive outdoor seating on the deck, for summer nights under the city lights.
Why is this Manchester canal boat up for sale?
What’s the catch? Pun intended. There isn’t one. The owners, Erin and Harry, are moving onto their next business adventures. Harry has recently launched a Fintech called Accountable and Erin soon be going to market with his app Parc and the guys are spinning too many plates.
Who is the canal boat perfect for?
If you fancy running your own business, The Vätten Hüs is quite the investment opportunity. The sale of the boat comes with a commercial trading license and lease agreement the with the Canal & River Trust, business insurance that covers operating as a static holiday let and all the relevant safety certificates. It’s a business in a box!
The Vätten Hüs currently generates between £20k-25k profit after tax per year, but Harry & Erin say this could be increased with an owner who runs the service, maintenance and cleaning of the boat themselves to £40-45k per annum. Alternatively, you can use the existing contracted cleaning team Fluff Limited, who know the boat inside out!
Erin said: “It’s too successful not to sell as a business, we want to continue to see it thrive but with the move and the next projects taking off it’s simply a time issue. We are being particular about the next buyer. The boat was designed and built by us, so we’re looking for boat enthusiasts.”
What does the sale include?
Well other than the 70ft boat and incredible décor. The owners are looking to sell as a business. All of the hard work with the authorities is completed to make this boat a success from the get-go and you will inherit a pipeline of bookings until the end of 2023.
This accommodating let is suitable for long and short stays, romantic nights in for two or big nights out, business trips and city retreats. Licenses, safety documentation, the years bookings, socials, full handover, exclusive mooring in Castlefield are all included and of course endless trips on the water for yourself. Quirks of owning a boat.
