New Mobile App Helps Find People Willing to Share Their Boat Near You
Littlenicethings, a creative design company based in Amsterdam have recently launched their campaign to help fund the first boat sharing mobile app - We are on a Boat.
The concept of the app is to allow more people to enjoy being on a boat by matching boat owners willing to share their vessel with people who are looking come along for the ride.
The inventors are currently using the global crowdfunding platform Kickstarter to fund the development of the app. The idea is a great way for boat enthusiasts to share experiences, make new friends and make the most of Europe’s waters. In return for sharing, boat owners are encouraged to ask for small payments, whether it be food, drink or fuel contributions. However, allowing people to connect and share an experience is at the heart of the app’s conception.
Once you download the app you are asked to register as either a passenger or a captain. After quickly filling out your profile, you are able to search boats by location and find the closest like minded boat sharers to you. The app’s designers are hoping to build a like-minded community through the feedback function allowing users to share their experiences after they’ve enjoyed a shared boat ride. Whether you’re a boat owner looking to meet new people or a boat enthusiast looking for great day out - We are on a Boat is worth investing in now.
