Do you have a boat and want to become a host? Make it an income and subscribe to the Letyourboat portal.
Anyone who owns a boat knows very well what are the huge costs to be incurred for insurance, maintenance and taxes. The risk we run today is seeing the boats age in a marina or a garage.
In fact, in Italy, as in the rest of the world, the number of abandoned boats is growing every year.
The reasons? The huge management costs that shipowners have to bear every year. Fairing, maintenance, mooring and taxes, the costs sometimes become really unsustainable.
How can we overcome this and help pleasure boating to recover? How to help shipowners cover costs so as not to be forced to leave their boats abandoned?
The market has studied a new solution: hospitality and tourism are always looking for new channels, and boat rental is proving to be one of the most interesting.
You have a boat: become a host with one click
Today to support the costs of the boats it is possible to become a host by earning the boat for free.
Boat rental, using the right service, is a quick and easy way to make a boat profit.
The sharing economy has experienced exponential growth in recent years, also for what concerns boat rental: we are talking about a market that represents a value of 10 billion euros in the world.
Different possibilities are offered by the best platforms for renting boats, aiming not only at boaters, but also at those who want to enjoy a very different holiday than usual.
Become a host on Letyourboat
Letyourboat is the online platform that offers owners the opportunity to earn by hosting on board.
The site, named among the best 200 startups at the Web Summit, defined by Forbes as the most important event in the world in this field, was launched on the market by a team of nautical experts and is the result of studies to fully satisfy the needs of shipowners and potential users.
The use is totally free and allows owners to earn, either as an occasional rental for outings at sea regulated under Legislative Decree 69/2013 or by renting the boat for a simple overnight stay (defined on the B&B site).
In addition, it can also provide useful services to the charter market, which can use it to rent their boats in B&B mode during the season when they do not go out to sea.
Developed with the latest technologies, our platform is equipped with all the necessary functions for communication, booking, verification of vessel documents, management of rates and calendars with availability.
All users, boats and documents are verified with an advanced system to guarantee a safe and risk-free site. And if there is a reservation, it is the owner who decides whether to accept it or not.
Letyourboat stands out for being the only platform for renting a boat that allows the owner to use, if he wishes, an operational manager (the Rent Advisor) who will assist him in booking and managing the boat.
Letyourboat makes boat holidays accessible to everyone, satisfying both owners, who can thus make a profit, and travellers who can enjoy a unique experience on board.
