Sailgate with your Tortuga Music Festival Boat Rental

Music enthusiasts can enjoy the festivities in style with a great beach front view and jump in to a whole new concert experience, whether they are local to Fort Lauderdale or visiting the city for the annual music festival.

Sailgating, while similar to tailgating, involves enjoying festivities with friends and family before, during and after a favorite event like the Tortuga Music Festival. However, instead of doing this in a parking lot, sailgating is done on the water.

“Boatsetter is a full service company providing an unforgettable experience on the water that is available to everyone,” said Pablo Vidal, chief marketing officer of, which combines the rental mechanics of Airbnb with the on-demand labor dynamics of Uber. “Boatsetter is not just a boat rental company, we provide an unforgettable experience, which includes enjoying the Tortuga Music Festival with friends on a luxury boat.”

Concert goers can take their concert-viewing experience to next level by gathering up a group of friends, renting a boat and enjoying  performances Friday through Sunday. Boatsetter offers everything from small boats starting at only $25 a person all the way up to luxury yachts.

If travelers are looking for something out of the ordinary while in Fort Lauderdale for the festival, forget the high priced hotel rooms and consider staying on the 44 foot Kensington I with up to 11 friends. Host a party on a Boatsetter boat rental and at the end of the day, you’ll have a place to stay as the boat sleeps up to four people.

According to the festival website, the Tortuga Music Festival works hand in hand with Rock The Ocean Foundation to increase public awareness about the issues impacting the world’s oceans and to support scientific research, education and ocean conservation initiatives. Boatsetter encourages all boaters to be aware of their surroundings and actions while respecting the oceans and waterways.

The startup is continuing to grow as a part of the $121 billion marine industry and is looking for boat owners, captains, marinas, yacht clubs, hotels and resorts in and around Fort Lauderdale, Miami and West Palm Beach to become of a part of their rapid, worldwide expansion. Boatsetter currently has boats stationed in most large coastal cities, popular lake front attractions, spring break hot spots and Mediterranean honeymoon locations.

Before getting underway, Boatsetter recommends for all boaters to file a float plan with a family member or friend, have all of the proper and required safety equipment, wear their life jackets and never operate a vessel under the influence of alcohol or another substance.

“Boatsetter has pioneered and secured the industry leading insurance policy for peer-to-peer boating market and we are ahead of any competitor,” explained Vidal. “We have the best-in-class insurance which covers our customers the United States and through all locations internationally.”
