The “Airbnb for Boats” Is Coming to Westchester

Envision yourself on a sunset cruise, sailing down Long Island Sound, onboard a classic 40-foot sloop with a few close friends, taking in the views and enjoying the breeze.

Don’t have a boat? No problem. Enter Boatsetter, the online network of privately owned vessels, docked around the world, that connects boat owners with potential renters. Think Airbnb but for boats. Sailboats, speedboats, and yachts are available to rent for day-trips (some are available for overnights), from more than 600 locations globally — and locally, including Mamaroneck and Verplanck.

Boatsetter saw a spike of interest in its service after the coronavirus hit, with some seeking ways to profit from what they own during a time of economic hardship and others seeking outdoor, socially distant activities. Owners and renters are connected on Boatsetter’s website, www.boatsetter.com.

For renters, no membership or boating experience is required. Certified captains and crew are available. Experiences can be tailored to seasoned boaters or novices who just want to enjoy a day on the water. Fishing charters are also available. Depending on the specific boat and dates, prices range from $200 to $3,000.
