I am trying to gauge the start up-costs for launching a boat tour service in Manhattan on the Hudson River and then what revenues would need to be brought in to make it a profitable business. As a background, I am just a guy in his 20s who day dreams about starting his own business but really has no idea what it would take. I work in the shipping industry (commercial side) and love the water. Rather than start a digital business, I am more interested in physical businesses and my mind immediately wanders to the waters around NYC (i.e. running a tour business on the Hudson, maybe a ferry service from Nyack to Manhattan, etc). One can dream, and I realize this would probably require a ton of capital (and most likely is not realistic)
Below are the expenses I am trying to define, any advice on where to retrieve this information is appreciated.
Licenses & Permits (NYC GOVT, Coast Guard, etc)
P&L (once business is launched)
Gross sales (ticket sales)
Repair and Maintenance
