Sailo helps you find and book a boat for your next adventure, with or without a captain.
Sailo is a platform offering boat rentals in awesome locations around the U.S. Unfortunately, unlike other boat booking services, Sailo’s reach is not international. The site sets itself apart from those comparable services, however, by allowing users to book a boat along with a captain. That makes the platform useful for anyone looking to have a party or event on a boat without having the responsibility of knowing how to operate it. Whether you’re looking for an excursion in Palm Beach, Miami or New York City, there are tons of great boats available for rent by the owner on Sailo.
The booking process on Sailo is similar to sharing economy sites like AirBnb. After conducting a search with your dates and location on the Sailo homepage, the site returns a list of results for you to compare. You can filter by type of boat, length, price, and fuel economy. After you’ve made your selection, you submit a booking request and wait for a response from the boat owner and captain. Within 24 hours, your booking can be complete. The site contains a wide variety of boat types, and the price varies based on whether you want to rent with or without a captain. Again, that just gives users more flexibility in making their decision, and the site is useful for both experienced and clueless boaters.
