The deal is the first of its kind in the Caribbean and adds Wally Castro Marine to Boatsetter’s industry-best network of marine partners.

Boatsetter’s online platform connects every-dayboat owners to renters, giving vacationers and residents more accessible boat rental options, while providing boat owners with a way to monetize their boat when it’s not in use. The service gives renters the freedom to design their own Puerto Rican excursion with activities ranging from a simple relaxing cruise on the river, an afternoon on a sandbar or deep waterfishing.

“Boatsetter’s partnership with Wally Castro provides vacationers in Puerto Rico who are looking for the experience of a lifetime with a new solution for getting out on the water on their own schedule,” said Pablo Vidal, chief marketing officer of Boatsetter.com. “Boatsetter’s industry leading boat rental service provides vacationersand locals interested in enjoying the boating lifestyle with easy and affordable access to the water.”

Named after its president, who has been active in the boating industry for more than 30 years, Wally Castro Marine is Puerto Rico’s premier destination for those seeking to buy or sell a boat. The company also services, repairs and offers maintenance for all boat brands.

There will be additional benefits for the tenants, marina and surrounding community from joining the ranks of Boatsetter.  Some of Boatsetter’s most successful boat owners make upwards of $10,000 a month renting out their boats. Wally Castro Marine will be the first location in the area to benefit by being an early adopter of the boat peer-to-peer boat rental community.

Benefits include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Tenant retention
  • Offset boat ownership costs
  • Increased sales of fuel, maintenance and services
  • Increased hotel and restaurant revenue
