It might not be part of Boatsetter's official slogan, but the company operates under a simple premise: an aye for an aye makes the whole world sailors. The peer-to-peer rental service makes it easy and intuitive for people to get short-term access to boats of all shapes and sizes, from power boats to sail boats to large event boats.

Naturally, boaters have varying levels of experience — one doesn't have to be a salty sea dog to enjoy going out on the water. Rentals on Boatsetter are sorted by captaincy, meaning that consumers can rent a boat with a captain if they don't feel confident enough themselves.

All of the boats on Boatsetter are offered up by locals, so this naturally means taking on risk. The company promises world class insurance, which is essential considering the varying levels of expertise on the parts of the renters.
