FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA, USA, Sept. 23, 2022 / — A common saying among boat owners and enthusiasts is, “The happiest two days in someone’s life are the day when he bought the boat and the day he sold it. the boat.”

I recently participated in a Click&Boat yacht tour in South Florida and was impressed with the ease and efficiency of the experience. Looking to learn more about this exciting addition to the Gig Economy, I recently reached out to a Click&Boat spokesperson to find out more. Here is a bit of that conversation.

MK: First of all, in a few words, how would you describe Click&Boat in simple terms?

C&B: We are a unique travel agency for everything related to water. We create a complete experience to cover your travel needs, from day or hour trips to week-long cruises and longer. And this, whether the crossings are national or international, because we are available in more than 600 world destinations.

MK: What inspired the service?

The founders Edouard Gorioux and Jeremy Bismuth made a simple observation during one of their visits to the marinas of the South of France. On average, they found that boats are used relatively infrequently. In the United States alone, most boats are used an average of only 54 days in a 365-day year. Maintaining, insuring and mooring a boat is expensive, with annual expenses averaging 10% of the annual boat price. They saw it as a problem and an expense for the owner. This inspired the solution in the form of the development of the Click&Boat collaborative platform.

It is based on sharing and trust, allowing boat owners to earn money confidently and securely.

MK: Who is Click&Boat for?

C&B: Click&Boat makes boating accessible to everyone, regardless of the type of boat or the desired body of water. From individuals and groups, to families and advanced sailors, everyone has the option of chartering a vessel – with or without a captain – to ensure the most comfortable experience on the water… no matter where they are in the world.

The platform allows any boat owner to create a free ad by adding photos, description, price and advice for the sailing area. From there, tenants looking for the ideal boat can contact the owner directly via Click&Boat messaging.

Owners also have access to the tenant’s sailing history and can confidently choose the right sailors for their boats. Renters can choose between a skippered or bareboat option to ensure their planned boat trip goes off without a hitch.

MK: What differentiates this service from other boat sharing players?

C&B: We offer a dedicated advisor who is available to help potential renters find the perfect boat or yacht for their nautical trip based on the exact needs of the renter. And, we have the most competitive offer globally. With over 40,000 vessels available, including powerboats, sailboats, RIBs, catamarans and more, future users can browse through over 171,000 online user reviews proving that Click&Boat is a reliable platform that puts boat travel in the right direction. And of course we have a weather cancellation policy when Mother Nature needs her moments. All of our rentals come with insurance to provide extra peace of mind.

Additional amenities can be provided per listing, so users can decide what best suits the needs of the excursion to make the experience even more personalized and unique. This can include food, drink, entertainment and more.

MK: Is the application group output user-friendly?

C&B: Absolutely! Our app makes booking a boat simple and easy for the user. With it, users can identify and share details about boats that interest them with groups of friends and family, making the shared experience especially convenient for group trips. In the revolutionary world of technology, Click&Boat has more than 250 people on the team who are constantly working to meet the needs of the platform and the users, and we are constantly innovating to ensure a smooth experience.

MK: How would you sum up the hospitality approach to service – in the nautical sense?

C&B: Simply put, Click&Boat makes the dream of sailing a reality for everyone. Getting out of the boat has a certain magical feeling that we want all users to feel. Throughout the user experience, our main passion is to ensure that everyone is comfortable throughout their time on board. We want to keep the flame burning for someone who is an avid sailor and ignite the passion of those new to the water.
