Our Service

Through the platform, we ( and our partners) offer an online platform where all types of boat operators (such as charters, marinas, flotillas, individual boat owners, water sports rental companies, yacht brokers, boat rental platforms, travel representatives, collectively the "boat providers") can offer, promote, and market their boats for rent, and where visitors to the platform can search, compare prices, and book these boats. In addition to the reservation service, we offer our customer support. Our shipmates are available 24/7 (including weekends) to assist you with any questions and issues. Furthermore, for an additional fee, we guide groups of ships (flotilla) in some sailing areas with a lead ship and skipper. The flotilla leader can provide you with information about the sailing area and assist you with various services. The information and assistance given never relieve you - as the skipper - of your own responsibility for the safety of you and your crew and for safe navigation and use of your boat and any (operational) decisions and actions.

By renting or booking a boat through (including any request thereto), you enter into a direct (legally binding) contractual relationship with the relevant boat provider from whom you rent a boat or with whom you make the request. From the moment you make a request, and/or rent or book your boat, we act solely as an intermediary (agent of the boat provider) between you and the boat provider, sending the details of your (request for) booking to the relevant boat provider and sending you an email confirmation on behalf of the boat provider.

In providing our services, the information we display is based on the information provided to us by the boat providers. As such, the boat providers have access to an online system through which they are fully responsible for updating the rental price, availability, and other information displayed on our platform.
