SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. -- GetMyBoat, leader of peer-to-peer boat rentals and charters, has just updated its app to better serve its customer base. Launched in January 2013, GetMyBoat is the undisputed leader in the space, having over 12,000 boats in 1,300+ cities, 80 countries, and all 50 US states. Always looking to improve the experience for those sharing their watercraft, the GetMyBoat Android and iPhone apps are the only in the world that allow for boat owners to list their boats, from canoes to luxury yachts, with just a few swipes of the screen.
Similar to companies like Airbnb and Uber that are planted in the sharing economy and favor an “asset-light” lifestyle, GetMyBoat allows boat owners to make additional income on their otherwise underused watercraft. With the newest update to the app (available at the App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android), boat owners can take pictures and list their boats faster and easier than ever before. A lengthy process that once required you to be at a computer is now reduced to 60 seconds and is available anywhere. Considering that owners use their boat an average of less than 8% of the year, this app helps owners showcase their boats from the palm of their hand.
“GetMyBoat is all about connecting owners to renters the easiest way possible,” said Bryan Petro, Head of Product at GetMyBoat. “We created this app for all those captains, skippers or crew members who spend their time on the water. Now they can take advantage of GetMyBoat without leaving the marina. There are apps for navigation and safety, now there is an app to easily connect boaters and renters. Interest and inventory will rise throughout the year.”
