Pushing Forward With Fire In Their Belly

No other story quite epitomises the application of business and passion as much as the story of Seaventures Travel and Tours Sdn Bhd. Founded in 1995 by Razak Harris, the company has grown steadily and has seen a smooth transition of a new management team, headed by Suzette Harris in 2005. Suzette, the company’s managing director cum current owner is determined to ensure the continuing success of the family business. The company reuse decommissioned rigs as a diving facility, which offers almost similar experiences to live-on boards, with the pristine views of Sabah waters. 

Their initial years were laden with various obstacles - markets' unreceptive response to their product concept, harsh competition from legal and illegal operators, lack of funds as well as problems in acquiring the necessary workers within their niche expertise. The turning point for them was the new management headed by Suzette and the injection of funds in upgrading their facilities alongside the company’s ability to meet customers’ needs. 

Passion by Suzette becomes Seaventures' major motivation for the company to further consolidate and expand their business, with the hope of a higher return on investments, indicative of their confidence in the current management’s acumen. As a small way forward, “Seaventures hope to introduce more facilities and also on partnerships that will help to expand our brand” says Suzette. 

The financial backing with low interest rates from MIDF proved to be most timely as it seeks to achieve its goals by assisting the company to acquire new boats as well as replacing old boat engines. These are critical assets for the business, which the company found that other banks and financial institutions were unwilling to back. These factors resulted in the company’s exponential growth with the upgraded facilities; enabling the company to provide a better level of service to their patrons.
