Find the Perfect Boat

Enter your travel dates and location and search our vast selection of unique, locally-owned Boats

Book It

Book the Boat of your dreams. The owner will confirm or decline your trip within eight hours, but typically it’s much sooner. Book boats instantly on listings with the “Instant Book” badge.

Pick Up The Boat

Meet the boat owner to pick up the boat. Many owners offer captains and crew, so they may tell you where to meet and bring it right to you. Walk around the docked boat, show them your Identification, grab the keys, and drive off into the sunset.

Have the Time of Your Life

Go explore! Sail the marina or near by islands, for a few days or a few weeks, rain or shine, grab your shades and go create something to write home about.

Return the Boat

At the end of your trip meet the owner to drop off the car. Walk around the docked boat again, hand over the keys, give them a high five, and start planning your next adventure.
