The industry-leading boat rental platform makes boating accessible by connecting owners, captains, and renters.

Fort Lauderdale, Florida /OUTDOOR SPORTSWIRE/ – The global leader in online peer-to-peer boatrentals, Boatsetter, has partnered with Backbone Media for PR efforts. Founded in 2012 by Jaclyn Baumgarten with the goal of democratizing the boating experience, Boatsetter aims to make boating affordable and accessible to anyone by connecting boat owners and licensed captains to pre-screened, qualified renters.

Through its innovative partnership with Geico and BoatUS, Boatsetter is the only insured peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace in the U.S. that includes insurance for owners, captains, and renters. Boatsetter offers renters and owners access to the largest database of United State Coast Guard-certified Captains, making it possible for those with no prior boating experience to enjoy spending time on the water.

Whether you’re looking for a boat rental for a day or a week-long charter, we provide the largest marketplace for any boating experience, with over 20,000 boats in over 600 locations to choose from” says founder and CEO Baumgarten.

Over 15,000 of those rentals are in the United States and Canada, with Europe, the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America rounding out the rest. There is also a robust network of over 2,300 Captains registered with the online boat rental company.
