What's New in Boating

Mar 29 2014

Last season, I introduced the membership to a company called Boatbound, a “pier-to-pier” boat rental marketplace. Almost a year later, Boatbound has become the largest boat sharing platform in the US. As a refresher, Boatbound enables boat owners to offset their boat ownership costs by renting their boats to pre-screened, qualified renters, with full control over who rents and when.

 

In just a short amount of time, Boatbound has drawn significant interest from various industry players and has secured several major partnerships to fuel their growth in 2014 and beyond. They’ve just announced a partnership with Brunswick, the largest player in the marine industry and will be rolling out to Brunswick’s Owners Clubs (which may include many of our members) in the coming weeks. As part of the partnership, Brunswick also invested in Boatbound’s latest financing round, further adding to Boatbound’s credibility and growth abilities. In addition, Boatbound has also locked down the sailing side of the boating market by partnering with the American Sailing Association, the domestic leader in sailing education and certification.
