A marine chandlery business on the Isle of Mull has gone on the market.

Seafare, on Main Street, Tobermory, is being sold by DM Hall, one of Scotland’s leading independent chartered surveyors.

It says offers over £135,000 are invited plus stock to be sold at valuation with no VAT payable on the purchase.

Founded in 1977,  Seafare had enjoyed more than 20 years of trading under the current owners, said DM Hall.

It has enjoyed high levels of repeat custom from the area’s fishing fleet, boating enthusiasts and word-of-mouth recommendations from customers, it said.

In addition to the sale of standard chandlery items, it also markets nautical clothing, footwear and a range of items for outdoor activities including campervans.

The property is within a small terrace of retail units in Tobermory and within a short walking distance of the pier, harbour and marina overlooking the bay.

Claire Hutton, of DM Hall, is managing the sales process and said: ‘Seafare has an excellent reputation with its suppliers and has been, and continues to be, well supported by islanders and boat enthusiasts, with people travelling from further afield to access their facilities.

‘The business has been successfully operated by its founder since its establishment, but due to personal circumstances this unique business opportunity is now available for purchase.

‘Anyone wishing for more information should contact Claire.Hutton@dmhall.co.uk or on 07876 541 654.’
