According to Owler.com, the most famous Boat rental app “GetMyBoat” generates $14.4K in revenue per employee GetMyBoat has received a total of $3.5M in funding. The recreational boating industry has a total economic impact of $121.5 billion in the U.S. each year; this includes $51 billion spent on some 12.4 million registered boats-this is what skift says.
When you live near water, numerous opportunities open up. One of those opportunities is that of the boat rental service. Fishermen, families, couples, police departments and tourists are all possible boat rental customers. As they would require the boats occasionally, so buying a boat for those few times could be needless expense.
GetMyBoat is the world's largest marketplace for boat rentals, yacht charters, and on-water experiences.
In contrast to the high expenditure of boats and their maintenance, customers can take the benefits of the same quality of experience on a very affordable budget by just renting a boat experience.
GetMyBoat allows people who own boats to list their boats as available to rent. Then, renters can look at the listings and book the vessel of their choice. If someone wants to rent out their boat, they can create a free account and list their boats. Not just boats, stand up paddle boards, kayaks, sailboats, fishing boats, as well as experiences like parasailing, scuba diving etc can be listed on the platform.
Owners can add photos of the boat and a description, including information like its availability,passenger accommodation strength and its make, model and year.
If a renter finds a boat they want to rent, they send an inquiry to the owner, stating when they want the boat, how many people they would bring on board, what they plan to do.
The admin of this marketplace app can manage its customers, boat owners and even the boats. Admin can assure good quality of boat as well as experience by verifying the services and boats at the time they are listed. Admin can further manage the Payments and can live track the boats when they are on a journey.
Whether it’s for sport, leisure, or need, your customers can now use a mobile app to order an on demand boat or yacht in jig time.
