This business would especially suit a couple interested in diving, particularly, as there is no specialist dive business on the island catering to the tourist industry. An opportunity exists to develop a niche market taking advantage of the rising popularity of Great Barrier as a visitor destination and its reputation for crystal waters, sunken shipwrecks and teeming sea life. The idea of setting up the Hooked on Barrier Adventure Centre was the result of two energetic people turning their love of the outdoors and Great Barrier Island into a viable business which enabled them to live on the island permanently and bring up their children in an extremely healthy and unspoilt NZ/South Pacific Island environment. 'Hooked on Barrier' is situated almost opposite to the Claris airfield, the main point of entry for the many tourists who visit Great Barrier Island. It is also in very close proximity to the Auckland City Council building and the Aotea Health Centre. Claris is the commercial and industrial centre of Great Barrier Island, with the main shopping centre accommodating a superette, post office/giftshop, fuel outlet, dental surgery, liquor store, tyre and auto repair centre, laundromat and cafe. As well as being in a prime location for foot and vehicle traffic, 'Hooked on Barrier' is close to the well known east coast beaches of Awana, Kaitoke and Medlands - all notable beaches on the national surfing scene. These beaches are suitable for kayaking, as is the nearby Kaitoke estuary. From this area, the west coast and its three harbours of Tryphena, Blind Bay and Whangaparapara are easily accessible by road - these harbours are favourite spots for fishing, snorkelling, diving and swimming. The 'Hooked on Barrier' Adventure Centre has over time developed into the comprehensive one-stop centre providing supplies and equipment for the various adventure pursuits which are popular on the Island. An excellent range of scuba gear/equipment (Tusa, Mares, Sherwood, Pro-dive), fishing accessories (Shimano, Penn), and kayaks (Q-kayaks) is available for sale. The centre also has an air compressor for dive bottle fills providing a certification service in collaboration with a technician and testing station in Port Fitzroy. Income for 'Hooked on Barrier' is also supported by a healthy trade in gifts, beach supplies and an ever increasing line of camping equipment and clothing, sporting the sought after 'Hooked on Barrier' logo incorporating snapper and crayfish designs. The building in which the adventure centre is housed, occupying the ground floor, is on its own title (812 sqm). The upper part of the building is rented out as a two bedroomed holiday flat. The second title (809 sqm) houses three structures; which accommodate a hire depot, an implement shed and an office - all have been rented out by a local contracting firm, which has operated from these premises for the past eight years. The third title (855 sqm) is a vacant site. Additional to the income derived from the Adventure Centre, the holiday rental, and the contractors rental, a seasonal income stream is derived from a relocatable outlet, owned by a local cafe. An independent valuation has been carried out on the three freehold commercial properties reporting a total value of $780,000. The purchase of the entire 'Hooked on Barrier' Adventure Centre 'package', could provide the purchaser with the opportunity to secure three valuable commercial realestate sites, with an income stream that may be utilised to subsidise the cost of this investment. The purchase of 'Hooked on Barrier' may be the beginning of a new adventure for the purchaser, plus the perfect excuse to relocate home and business to paradise on Great Barrier Island.........
