Boat Setter

Jan 22, 2019

The average US boat is taken out onto the water just over 11 days a year. Yet owners pay for maintenance, dock or storage fees, and other expenses for all 365 days.

Savvy owners let their boats work for them and list with Boatsetter, the leading online peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace. It offsets the expense of owning a boat and can generate serious money. It’s so lucrative, last year the average owner made over $4,600 U.S.D. in rental income.

It’s not only for current owners. Many are using Boatsetter to subsidize the purchase of their first boat and even upgrade to a larger, more luxurious model. It can become so profitable, some entrepreneurial types are developing small rental fleets to maximize their income.

Boatsetter 2Boatsetter gets it: it’s not easy to let go. That’s why it places such an emphasis on safety and compliance. Owners have complete control over the rental price, days and times their boats are available and who can rent them. If the vessel is more than the average person can manage, expert USCG-licensed captains are available for hire by the renter to take the helm. And if the renter shows up and things don’t quite add up, the boat stays in its slip.

Once on the water, all eligible rentals are covered by best-in-class hull and liability protection and 24/7 on-water service. It remains the responsibility of the owner and the renter to ensure that all necessary and desired insurance coverage is in place for each rental.

Listing a boat is free and easy. After a profile is set up with some basic information and a few good photos, owners connect with pre-screened renters through the website or mobile app. Around-the-clock support is always available.

About a month ago, I traveled to Charlevoix, MI for a special press event to introduce the H9 to a small group of journalists. The water and the weather were a bit cool but the sun was out and Lake Charlevoix was calm and the Four Winns H9 was very impressive. This is a 29-foot 11-inch luxury day boat with a 9- foot 2-inch beam and it features a fabulous expansive flat floor all the way from the bow rider area to the transom and the swim platform.
