About Kelly Boat
KellyBoat is passionate about providing a one-of-a-kind experience at sea for everyone,
while helping individuals leverage their assets.
KellyBoat is the safest way for yacht owners to monetize their boating assets by offering it to boating enthusiasts for the day. Founded by friends with a long time New England maritime heritage, we are passionate about sharing our love of the ocean with everyone.
The KellyBoat Solution
Maintaining a boat is expensive. The average boat owner uses their boat less than 10 days a year, and not running your boat on a regular basis is terrible for the long term well being of a boat. Our program allows boats to be run by USCG captains with paying guests. An owner can offset some of the ownership costs, while their boat is run at times when it would otherwise sit idle. It’s a win/win for the owner, while granting access to boating to those who do not own one themselves.
Many consumers today want to have certain experiences, without the hassles of ownership. Collaborative consumption has made it’s way into vacation homes, cars, even RVs and now boats. While boat sharing has made it way into Florida, it has yet to take a strong hold in New England.
We bring these two customers together: boat owners who need to have their boat run when they can’t do so themselves, and guests who want to use these boats.
We are the only New England born and focused boat sharing platform. We focus on safety, by offering only USCG captain run trips, and through our partnership with Gowrie Insurance who creates custom policies for each boat that enters the program.
