The New and Convenient Yacht Rental App ‘Boatsetter’

Boat Rental App

New Yacht Rental App ‘Boatsetter’ Let’s You Instantly Rent Luxury Yacht

Boatsetter is a peer-to-peer boat sharing platform that connects those who want to spend a day on the water to a fleet of boats and licensed captains. Recently gaining traction with the emerging peer-to-peer boat rentals market, this yachting app is sort of like a combination of Airbnb’s rental mechanics and the instant on-demand service of Uber or Lyft.

Avoiding the intensive applications and advanced booking process traditionally embraced in the industry, Boatsetter allows prospective renters to instantly look through a selection of available vessels ranging from smaller motorboats to sailboats, all the way to luxury yachts. The yacht rental app also connects users with captains and crews for vessels that require a captain’s license to operate.

A Peer-to-Peer Boat Rental App

With Boatsetter, owners can easily list their boats and boat seekers can book them for a half-day or full-day. Platform users will just have to specify a location, party size, and whether or not they need a captain. They can then lock their dates or “instant book” for that day.

Boat seekers looking for a specific experience can filter their search by power, sail, or fishing. They can choose from a wide range of amenities such as pet-friendly policies, yacht toys, top-class stereo sound systems, and more.

Yachting Apps for Renters and Owners

There are two Boatsetter apps, one for renters, Boatsetter, and one for owners. Boat owners get to control the availability and pricing of their vessel as well as set guest rules through the Boatsetter – Owners app. Boatsetter offers them access to world-class liability protection, 24-hour support, and a network of USCG-licensed captains.

The platform is available in over 600 locations with its main markets in South Florida, Ibiza, Mexico, and the Caribbean. The Fort Lauderdale-based company continues to expand.

"Our goal is to continue to dominate the U.S. boat sharing market as a gateway for more affordable and accessible rentals for consumers nationwide.” – Jaclyn Baumgarten, Co-Founder & CEO of Boatsetter
