In keeping with the theme of let’s pass some time at work during the holiday week, who has dreamt of owning a business on St. John? I know I used to, and I’m fairly certain many of you have too! But before I get into the particulars of what’s currently for sale on St. John, please know that all of the businesses mentioned below are open for business as usual. The fact that they’re listed for sale has no impact on daily operations. So go ahead and continue enjoying them all. 🙂
The most affordable business that’s currently listed is Cafe Roma. Cafe Roma has been dishing up Italian fare in Cruz Bay since 1981. The current owner purchased the business after reading about it on my former blog, so maybe the new owner will purchase it after reading about it here on my new blog! This sale is for the business only, as the restaurant space is leased. Cafe Roma is listed for $150,000 by Sea Glass Properties.
If you’ve ever visited St. John, chances are you’ve picked up one of our popular cartoon maps or guidebooks. Well that business is up for sale too! Island Treasure Maps launched in 1984 when a local cartoon artist wanted to use her talents to connect visitors with merchants on the island. The sale includes three maps, one guidebook, original artwork and reproductions. The maps print twice a year. Island Treasure Maps is listed for $225,000 by 340 Real Estate Co.
Two boat charter companies are currently listed for sale as well. Cimmaron Yacht Charters is a successful charter business that includes two sailboats – Cimmaron, a 43-foot classic wooden yawl built in 1969 and Grace, a 41-foot center cockpit Bristol high performance cruiser with a distinctive classical styling built by some of New England’s finest craftsmen. The sale includes two moorings in Great Cruz Bay. Cimmaron Yacht Charters is listed for $295,000 by Cruz Bay Realty.
Just Fish, a well-established and renowned fishing charter company based out of Cruz Bay, is also listed for sale. Just Fish offers half days, three-quarter days, full days, and marlin trips.

The charter experience includes fishing offshore on the north or south drop, or inshore around the inner cays. Just Fish is listed for $895,000 by Cruz Bay Realty.
