Offset Boat Ownership Costs by Listing Your Boat on Boatsetter

You probably already know that Boatsetter is the best place to go when you’d like to rent a boat or yacht for an affordable sailing adventure. But did you know that Boatsetter can also help you as an existing boat owner? You can offset the costs of owning a boat by simply listing it on Boatsetter for rent. The money you make from renting your boat to others can help you offset the costs of purchasing a boat, such as storage, maintenance, and cleaning. It can even help you pay off the boat a little earlier so that you can have a lot more time to enjoy your own boating adventures with family and friends well into the future!

Listing your Boat

You can go about listing your boat on Boatsetter if you have decided to offset the ownership cost. Enter the make of your boat, the year it was built, the boat model, and the boat type (powerboat or sailboat). Then create an account with Boatsetter or login using your existing Facebook or Google profile. The next step is to set a daily price for your boat and decide whether potential renters can hire a captain for their voyage. Finally, decide on an insurance policy to protect you and your boat in the unlikely event of something going wrong.

The Power of Pictures

After listing your boat on Boatsetter by following the steps outlined above, it is time to display some pictures. While only one photo is required by insurance for your boat to be approved, potential renters love pictures. Boats with 3 pictures or more usually get more rentals, more quickly. Finally, you’ll need to provide a listing title and a listing description. Again, your boat will rent more quickly, depending on how well you can describe it. Think of the boat rental process in the same way as if you were trying to rent your house out.

Start Getting Offers!

Just enter your contact details as well as a few more questions for insurance purposes, and you’ll be good to go. Sit back at home and wait for great offers to come pouring in. More bookings than you can keep up with? Outsource the administration with a boat manager.

By listing your boat on Boatsetter, you can take all of the work out of renting your boat and focus on things that really matter, like planning the next ocean voyage or river cruise you’d like to make!

Visit Your Boatsetter Site Regularly

With a familiar interface, the Boatsetter owner site allows you to change your listing details regularly and easily. Not getting the kind of offers you’d like?
