WHO WE ARE

Boatsetter is the largest and fastest growing peer-to-peer boat rental platform in the industry. Joining Boatsetter means being apart of something huge. Boatsetter is not only making boating more accessible, but is changing the entire boating industry. We connect renters, owners and captains directly on our software platform, allowing renters to easily schedule a boating trip, while offering owners a way to monetize their boats when not in use.

We have often been described as the “Airbnb of boating.” Boatsetter represents over 5,000 boats in several hundred locations in the U.S. and recently expanded overseas through our partnership with Luxury Retreats, a division of Airbnb. We work out of a new headquarters in downtown Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.


OUR PRODUCT TEAM

Our product team consists of a small group of talented engineers, designers and product managers who are passionate about building great features to serve the boat-sharing economy.

Our product managers work across the feature set - gathering input from stakeholders, conceiving of new features, translating desired UX into specs for engineering, measuring user engagement and managing our product roadmap. We utilize agile development methods and try to deliver value for the business every day.
