Taking part in a day for sailors to connect, share and celebrate sailing, Cruzin, America’s first fully-insured peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace, is sponsoring Summer Sailstice. The global, annual celebration of sailing takes place on the weekend closest to the summer solstice. This year the sailing holiday is June 22-23.
“Cruzin is excited and proud to join forces with Summer Sailstice to help promote the sailing and boating lifestyle,” said Jaclyn Baumgarten, Cruzin CEO. “Both Cruzin and Summer Sailstice help grow sailing by providing easy access to vessels and events. We look forward to reaching out to more sailors and bringing the passion of being out on the water to more people.”
Summer Sailstice was founded in February 2001. The annual event is free to all participants and has grown from 200 boats in 2001 to almost 5,000 boats today. In 2012, over 4,900 boats and 19,000 sailors participated in Summer Sailstice related sailing events.
As a boater-to-boater™ rental marketplace, Cruzin provides a secure place for boat owners to generate revenue by renting out their boats, while pre-screened boat renters get access to a diverse inventory of boats at affordable rates. At Cruzin.com, boating enthusiasts who don’t own a boat are matched with current boat owners who want to cover some of the costs of keeping their vessel.
Both owners and renters are covered by $1,000,000 in hull and liability insurance from one of the world’s top marine insurers, a world-class AM Best rated A+ (superior) firm. Cruzin works with BoatUS to provide on-water towing services should assistance be needed.
Cruzin is actively seeking beta users. Invitations to join the Cruzin beta site can be requested at www.cruzin.com, where visitors can learn more about the renting process.
