Traveling can be an exciting and enriching experience, but it can also be stressful, especially when it comes to transportation. GoBoat, a new business concept that utilizes local fishermen as shuttle traffic for tourists between Canggu and Uluwatu, offers a stress-free way to travel.
One of the ways GoBoat helps reduce the stress of travel is by offering fast boat trips. The company's boats can take you from Nelayan, Canggu to Bingin Beach and/or Dreamland Beach in just 20 minutes, compared to the 1 hour plus it takes by bike. This allows customers to bypass traffic and avoid the stress of planning their transportation.

The company's schedule is designed to accommodate customers with different plans and needs, and the company is always ready to adjust the schedule based on demand.
In addition to the convenience of its service, GoBoat also prioritizes safety and customer service. The company invests in safety equipment, such as life jackets, communication devices, and emergency procedures training, to ensure that customers have a safe and enjoyable experience. The company also has staff members on board each boat trip to help customers embark and disembark safely.
The company also works closely with local operational manager to oversee logistics and communication with fishermen, which helps improve the customer experience. This ensures that the logistics and communication with the fishermen is efficient and effective.
In terms of financial projections, GoBoat estimates that it will need an initial investment of 20,000 USD to cover the cost of developing the app and website, purchasing safety equipment, and marketing expenses. The company expects to generate revenue of X IDR per month, with a profit margin of 66% after paying tax and fees. Salaries are capped at 10% of sales. The company plans to break even within the first year of operations and achieve profitability by the second year.
