Breakeven analysis for Santa Voyages

Santa voyages Inc., is a company operated by an individual as a summer tourist attraction on the great lakes. It operates a sailing schooner offering day cruises for individuals and groups. Over the last few years, the average number of tourists per cruise was 30.The average charge per person for the cruise , including group discounts was $ 100.The company operates from mid-may until mid-September. On average the ship sails 100 days during this period.

The Sailing bird (the name of the schooner) requires a crew of 6 and is captained by the owner of the company. University students with extensive sailing experience have been willing to work on a per diem basis of $ 100. They are paid only if the ship is cruising. The ship provides non-alcoholic refreshments and a light lunch. These are required daily from a local delicatessen and cost on average $ 25 per person. The daily operating expenses, fuel and miscellaneous supplies average $ 50 a cruise. The company has a variety of annual expenses including: maintenance, depreciation, marketing, licenses , Etc.. Totaling approximately $ 85000.
