Want to feel like a high-roller VIP on a private yacht for your next anniversary vacation to a tropical island in the Caribbean or during your big family reunion to a lake house in Texas?

 

The GetMyBoat app connects sea and lake adventurers with luxury boat owners and a list of high-ranked captains to create family memories everyone will remember for years to come.

 

Similar to short-term home rental websites like Airbnb and VRBO, the GetMyBoat app relies on Hosts to post their personal boats for people looking to have a private charter with friends and family. Customers send an inquiry to the boat owners on days they would like to book a trip and together they negotiate pricing. Each boat owner can choose their own pricing per hour, duration of trips, and guidelines for guests to follow while aboard.

 

Aside from luxury yachts, GetMyBoat offers jet skis, sailing trips, paddleboards, fishing charters, diving lessons, private tours, cruises and even event spaces for large groups. These rentals and water activities are perfect for socially distant gatherings, away from large beach crowds. The app projects to send more than 1 million people on water adventures in 2021 after seeing a huge boom in reservations with one made every few minutes.
