BEDnBOATS.com platform is set for a high-profile launch in Monaco during the annual yacht show next month, where, under the high patronage of His Serene Highness Prince Albert, 121 superyachts from 16 countries valued at $3 billion (€2.65 billion) will be on display at the high-profile event from September 28 to October 1.
The new BEDnBOATS.com community provides an affordable alternative to hotel and apartment rental for travellers interested in renting a stationary boat for exciting holidays, romantic escapes and family breaks away. The innovative new platform and its seamless interface make it easy for boat owners to list their boats for free.
Prospective renters can effortlessly find and rent static boats in a location of their choice, from yachts moored in beautiful harbours to unique boat-style accommodations in picturesque locations worldwide.
“We consider the BEDnBOATS.com brand to be an Airbnb-type booking engine for static charter. Renting a boat is no longer limited to those wanting to sail. Now everybody can stay on a boat and enjoy the experience of a boat owner for a fraction of the price,” said Amber Bishop, Founder and CEO, BEDnBOATS.com.
The business model is a response to vast opportunities presented by the sharing economy. We connect those who want a unique and special experience with the people who already have this through easy-to-use technology. The sharing economy is reshaping the future of business.’’
There is no cost to boat or yacht owners to register their vessel and set their preferred rates. It is an ideal way to help offset the high expenses involved in boat ownership by enjoying a new source of income through the trusted platform. All travellers have to do is decide on their desired destination, travel dates and the number of guests. Users are already enjoying relaxing and exclusive stays in Monaco, Cannes, St. Tropez, Antibes, Barcelona, Ibiza and islands across Italy, and the organisers plan to expand its USA and Caribbean operation in year 2017.
