Boatsetter Partners with Top Marinas
Boatsetter has reached a milestone of forming over 165 marina partnerships. The company recently merged with Cruzin to become the leading boat-sharing company in the marketplace. Unlike fractional ownership or charter fleets, boat-sharing vessels are privately owned and maintained. Boats that might otherwise rarely leave the dock are now being put to use on Boatsetter.com. For a marina, this increase in activity translates into income. Empty slips are filled, additional fuel is sold, service and storage dockets remain full, and retail and dining traffic is increased. If the marina has attached boat sales, many dealers are listing their vessels with Boatsetter to create try-it-before-you-buy-it scenarios that are successfully generating profits. Top Marinas across the country have joined with Boatsetter because of the quantifiable lift in revenue and customer base growth. They also understand the value of cultivating the boating industry as a whole. The partnerships range from large groups to small, regional and local facilities. "It's highly strategic," said Jaclyn Baumgarten, Boatsetter CEO. "If we get more people actively participating in boating, we end up stimulating the marine economy in a very significant way. Marinas, a major segment of the industry, see the long-term financial benefits of embracing boat-sharing." Boatsetter has created a robust partnership network, including many top marinas: Almar Marinas; Aqua Marine Partners; Bestinboating.com; BoatUS; Brewers Yacht Yards & Marinas; Conch Harbor Marina Key West; Denison Yacht Sales; Flagship Marinas; Gulfstream Boat Club; Marinas International; Loggerhead Marinas, Morningstar Marinas; National Liquidators; Palm Beach Yacht Center; Suntex Marinas; Vessel Vanguard; and Westrec Marinas. Boatsetter brings owners, renters and US Coast Guard licensed captains together to create a safe and secure community. The company has thousands of boat listings of all varieties located in top boating destinations worldwide. Each transaction features best-in-class insurance coverage and on-water towing and assistance.
