    Posted: 20 December 2006 at 11:20pm

$1000.00 "finder's fee" to anyone finding a buyer or "acceptable" partner with 5+ yrs experience

We are looking for an experienced (5 yrs plus) marine canvas fitter and will
pay top dollar if qualified. This business is for SALE too! I am very very
serious ! I will pay $1000 cash to ANYONE finding a buyer/partner for my
marine canvas business located in Charleston (mt. pleasant), SC 29464.
This business is extremely healthy and profitable ....and expanding which is
why I need help. I prefer to sell but anyone with the necessary
experience(5yrs+ ??) can move right in and I will do whatever it takes to
make things work. I have many ideas on how to find this person(s) but not
much time to do it.

Located in beautiful sunny and warm coastal South Carolina adjacent to
historic Charleston, SC. Allstar marine canvas is located one mile from
Sullivan's Island beach and two miles from Charleston, adjacent to Rt 703.
The business was established in 1990 and has enjoyed continued growth, an
excellent clientel and 25 concentrated areas with boats and marinas all
within minutes of the shop including the new Patriot Point Marina at the
Marriot Hotel on the harbor.

The recently built shop facility is brightly lighted, central heat and air,
has very high ceilings and a wide open view to the outside through the many
windows and two doors (pics avail). The shop is efficiently laid out with
lots of storage, a good selection of stocked materials, hardware,
tubing, fittings, etc. Equipment consist of: (1) Consew 206 rb1 and (1)
Brother Ls2 walking foot industrial machines (1) professional tubing bender
and crowning attachment, computer, printer, all necessary hand tools,
rulers, 3 tier material rack, etc. Also included are all tools and equipment
required for offsite operations. Everything is in good condition & currently
being used to produce ongoing orders!

This facility is adjacent to the attached, nicely appointed 3 bedroom 2 bath
house and was recently painted inside and out with newly refinished hardwood
floors and new ceramic tiles on the kitchen and bath room floors. All new
appliances in 2000 including refrig, dishwasher, oven, microwave, chest freezer
and clothes washer and dryer. New central heat & ac in 1992. This business runs very
efficiently with very low overhead and we enjoy being considered one of the
finest outfitters in the Charleston area. This is a turnkey opportunity with room
for considerable increase in volume on top of our pre-existing clientel.
Expansion of the business could easily be achieved into residential /
commercial awnings, auto and other non marine upholstery.

We have parking for 6 vehicles including a utility carport for outdoor work
also a side and a gated rear area to store boats onsite if necessary.

Our asking price of $95,000 includes everything except the house and lot but
the owner will consider selling all the above and with flexible financing!
Long term training and partnerships are being considered with a down
payment. The house and shop could also be rented to either the new owners
or partners. The current owner has been doing boat canvas for over 20 yrs
and now seeks to devote time consulting , management and yacht brokerage.

If interested, you may send an e-mail to or call Keith Callery at 843.814.1443 requesting the full brochure with pictures and/or more information.

Remember, this posting includes a FREE $1000.00 "finder's fee" to anyone who
causes the purchase or partnership of this boat canvas & upholstery business. It is not
necessary to purchase anything in order to qualify for the finder's fee.
