A unique opportunity to own a floating restaurant has recently come up.
The Shark Shack, located on Shuswap Lake in Sicamous, has been listed for sale at $749,900.
The restaurant is listed with restaurant broker Jean Seguin at RE/MAX Crest Realty.
According to the restaurant’s website, they will open for the season in June. They opened in 2008, serving pub style food in a unique environment complete with a gift shop.
As you might have guessed, the restaurant is boat access only. They have dock hands to give customers a valet-like experience to ensure your boat is taken care of. There are also water taxis and rentals for anyone who does not own their own vessel.
“Exclusive to Shuswap lake, no other businesses can operate like this one,” the ad says. “Positioned as one of the most celebrated tourist spots in the Okanagan since 2008, the Shuswap Shark Shack provides a distinctive dining experience on a floating barge in the middle of the scenic Cinnemousun narrows.”
The listing says that the Shark Shack is a three-barge arrangement adding up to 197 feet long. It also includes sleeping quarters for about 15 people to serve the operations of the bar and restaurant along with the store and boat rental business.
The barge is assessed at over $1 million and the sale includes two-speed boats.
