MadMax Nautical Franchising

the first and only one in Europe

Turn your passion into entrepreneurship

COMBINING WORK AND PASSION IS POSSIBLE

My name is Lucas, I am the MadMax Nautical Franchising administrator, 20 years ago I owned and operated a Maternity shop, a job that I was passionate about to start with, but which slowly as time went on became less and less interesting, inundated with useless bureaucracy, ever increasing rent to pay and being closed up in a shop all day didn’t help me either.

I decided at that point, against all the advise from family and friends who could not understand why I would leave a relatively secure income, to take a leap into the unknown (in 1999 nautical charters did not exist) and chase my dream of combining my passion with an occupation.

Today I can say that I made the right choice, and I can prove to those who share my dream that combining a passion with work is possible.

Thanks to MaxMax Nautical Franchising you will benefit from the 20 years of experience accumulated through sacrifice, many mistakes, wasted time, and bad investments.

With the MadMax Nautical Franchising team, new members will be able to skip all the mistakes made during the growth of the business and start off on the right foot right from the start, benefiting from a strong brand, a consolidated customer base and a rental system which is unique in the industry allowing us to maintain low overheads, avoiding waste and guaranteeing net profits from the first season.

The Nautical Franchising
philosophy

The MadMax Nautical Franchising philosophy is based on the principal that any monies saved are  the companies first earnings.

Obviously the business requires the means, capacity and organization to optimize costs at each  stage in the production line, while having better maintained vessels, delivering a higher quality service to customers and manage a comprehensive international sales network.

Our strength, the strength of MadMax Nautical Franchising is the understanding of what is the most important component of the franchising business, our partners.

It is the new entrepreneur, trained and followed from our head office, who offers the excellent service to the customers, ensures that the brand is synonymous with exclusivity, guarantees customer retention, and creates a virtual network benefiting all our partners.

In order to succeed we have combined all of our 20 years experience and <<copied>> the largest and most successful franchising group in the world, the McDonalds group, in which the future franchisee is trained and accompanied through each step of the business process, from how to fry chips, clean floors, to managing the accounts and deciding on the size of the outlet. This is what we do with our partners, only we do it in the Nautical world.

Preparing Partners

THE BASE OF OUR SUCCESS

Using the MadMax professional skippers training program we can train even a novice to manage the company and a charter catamaran.

Every successful trainee is guaranteed a job on one of our catamarans or on one of our partners catamarans, to develop experience, and to understand if this type of work is really what they are looking for and they are suited to it.

Only after this experience, if positive, the student will have attained the attributes which are required to guarantee to themselves as well as to the company that the professional level has been achieved to start a successful business and becoming a MadMax Nautical Franchising partner.

While waiting for the delivery of the new Catamaran the franchisee will be able to continue with training and gathering experience as assistant skipper on our catamarans, at no cost.

The franchisee, who will have been followed step by step until the new catamaran was delivered, will continue to receive support during each phase of the work day and (if necessary) be accompanied by an expert skipper, as well as through telephone assistance with MadMax technical staff, naval experts, legal experts, as the technical support in the Livorno yard.

The choice of catamaran

YOUR NEW TRAVEL COMPANION

Choosing the right catamaran is the first essential step and needs to be planned well in advance.

As things stand at the moment between 12 and 18 months will be required from the order date to the delivery date of your catamaran, depending on the model ordered.

MadMax Nautical Franchising is an s-dealer of Lagoon catamarans, customers most popular brand and undeniably the most comfortable catamarans for charter.

The Lagoon 40, which can accommodate up to 10 guests, can be purchased by paying a deposit of about 25,000 euro at time of order, and a year later, at the time of launch another 100,000 euro.

A 7 year lease of about 2900 euro per month with a small 1% leasing redemption of the catamarans value will cover the outstanding sum.

A few months later, through the promotion and rental of the catamaran by MadMax Nautical Franchising the partners business will give a gross amount return of about 80,000 euro, almost equal to the total paid.

Reducing the costs
and increasing  the profits

A WINNING STRATEGY

Keeping costs under control is the main goal of any healthy company, knowing how to reduce costs considerably is the MadMax Nautical Franchising guarantee for success.

In the nautical world, more than any other, costs can soar out of control, from mooring spots, to any mechanical repairs needed, to consulting naval experts, and haulage to layovers on land or water.

MadMax Nautical Franchising offers its partners:

  • Inexpensive docking
  • A yard in which to carry out your own maintenance with internal mechanics and technicians available for any type of work at reduced costs.
  • An office with naval experts to help process any paperwork and documentation requirement quickly and inexpensively.
  • A naval legal office to support you with any dispute that might occur
  • A business office operating with agreed and reduced tariffs to help form and run the new business.

Furthermore partners can access the maximum discounts, reserved only for MadMax Nautical Franchising, for the purchase of any nautical equipment required by the business.

We have calculated that we can generate about 20,000 euro per year of savings compared to a ‘do it yourself’ boat owner, while offering a priceless management ‘know how’.

Being part of a strong group

ITS NOT A SECRET, UNITY IS STRENGH, ALWAYS!

In this way I believe we support our partners, both technically and logistically.

A problem for them is a problem for us which must be resolved immediately, by uniting our strengths and abilities to ensure that our guests always receive first rate service at all levels.

We will offer the new boat owner/skipper free use of our vessels while waiting for the delivery of their catamaran in order to continue gathering experience and for the first season they will accompanied, if necessary, by one of our experienced skippers.

We are a close and united group, always.
