Now, with the ease of booking an Airbnb, you can book a boat. Get My Boat is both a website and an app and it allows users to search for boat rentals near them, whether you’re looking for a powerboat, sailboat, jet ski or anything in between. However, reports say the large majority of boats available are things more like paddleboards, kayaks and jet skis — things the normal traveler would want to rent and be trusted with, rather than, say, a yacht.

 

The booking process is simple, as promised, and you can search for boats based on location, boat type, features and amenities. Just browse through more than 108,000 boats ready to rent and charter in top boating destinations and then message the owner and book online. A connected messaging app allows you to talk with the owner in real time to arrange all of the details. You can even enjoy personal experiences with expert guides. You can currently book boats in more than 180 countries.

 

If you have a boat you’d like to list, the experience is likewise easy. In addition to listing your boat, you can also offer guided water experiences, such as tours. Both companies and private owners can list watercraft and creating a listing is easy and simple.

 

Just like with Airbnb and Uber, both owners and renters leave reviews for one another to build up a community of trustworthy users.

 

So far, more than 100,000 people downloaded the app and more than 30,000 have actually gone boating with a reservation through the app.
