Anchor provides a technology platform to manage the marketplace that connects Boat & Yacht Owners and Captains with Renters/Passengers for safe and hassle-free on the water experiences. Anchor, in its pursuit to improve water safety, knows that it needs to increase the accessibility of US Coast Guard (USCG) certified Captains available to the market, a posture that is fully supported by the USCG. Anchor stands ready to allow more people, with or without a boat, to have a safe and enjoyable experience on the water. Boat ownership is expensive and laborious. Boat owners spend thousands of dollars each month while boats sit idle an average of 92% of the time. Subsequently, boat renters are limited to an undesirable selection of boats. Anchor allows Boat & Yacht owners to take advantage of additional income to offset the cost of ownership as well as eligible tax deductions. Unlike other online peer-to-peer booking services, Anchor provides a dedicated concierge team to handle the boat selection, fuel, food & beverage provisioning with customized experience and choices of USCG certified Captains. Anchor’s marketplace allows its customers to enjoy the best on-the-water experience with a trained professional at the helm. Anchor’s technologies enable our customers to state their needs (planned or on-demand), generate gigs for our ever-growing Captain community, and improve overall water safety.
