Sailo is slowly but very surely developing into the next big thing with regards to a disruptive marketplace. I know the company rather well, as one of the co-founders presented at one of my Meetups earlier in the year, and I got hooked ever since.
Launched in September of 2014 and based in New York and Florida, Sailo is a peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace that connects boat owners, captains, and renters on one easy to use platform. Whether you are experienced or new to boating, Sailo offers the possibility to view, compare and book yachts and captains in minutes. You choose from an hour, day or week, and at a variety of price points, we take care of all the rest.
From sailboats and motor yachts to pontoons and cruisers, boat rentals are now easy, fun and accessible to everyone. And with their open marketplace for licensed captains and complete trip insurance, they offer the easiest and safest way for owners to monetize their boats and showcase them to thousands of enthusiasts.
So if you want to get out there and check them out, do so here and make sure to give me the feedback when you come back!
Have a nice trip.
