The safest, best boat sharing platform: period.

Safe. Secure. Fully covered.

New to sharing?

Ten years ago, the idea of renting your home online was unheard of. Now, companies like Turo, and AirBnB have innovated the hospitality industry allowing smart homeowners around the world to list their properties when they aren’t using them. This has grown beyond homes to everything from bikes to cars…and now boats.

Boat owners can make returns on the many days they aren’t themselves aboard. Rather than sitting at the dock with growing costs, algae, and barnacles, these owners now earn revenues that offset the many costs of boat ownership. Of course, the boat is always under the care of a USCG certified captain, never inexperienced users. 

There are many companies that are happy to add any and every boat to their website and quickly start booking trips with anyone willing to pay. KellyBoat is different, we love boats, and will treat yours with the level of care she deserves. We keep you, comfortable and in control of how and when your boat is enjoyed by qualified guests – that is the KellyBoat promise.

Why You Should Join KellyBoat:

SAFETY

Not all boat sharing programs are the same.  We take safety very seriously.  Each KellyBoat is always under the care of a USCG captain, period. No inexperienced operators allowed. Phew!  And, having a captain run the ship means there is always someone who is professional, knowledgable and competent looking out for your yacht.

IN USE IS GOOD FOR YOUR BOAT…

Seldom used yachts simply have more maintenance issues. She was made to run! Just like regular exercise is good for your health, regular use is good for your yacht. Many common issues can be avoided through regular use, and others can be found and dealt with before you head out yourself.

…AND YOUR CREW
Long idle periods aren’t good for your crew, either! A happy crew is a good crew. With regular trips, your crew will be engaged in regularly servicing the yacht, and happily earning extra income via tips.
OFFSET EXPENSES
Income from each trip offsets your regular expenses such as dockage, maintenance, and insurance. Depending on the amount of time you make her available, it can cover a significant portion of these expenses.
TOO PRETTY NOT TO SHARE
Let’s face it….she’s a beauty.  It’s a great feeling to have others admire the beautiful things you own. On the days you can’t be aboard, it’s great to know others are being wowed and amazed by your gorgeous yacht, especially when the alternative is having her sit idle.
SOLD!
If your boat is for sale, or are you considering selling, our program is an excellent way to get it noticed, and experienced, by potential buyers.  Please let us know if you are interested in having us indicate to guests that she is available for purchase.  Maybe your next guest will be her new owner!
TAX ADVANTAGES
There can be significant tax benefits associated with putting a boat into a share program. Please speak to your accountant about the options and details.
