So far I like the program they have to rent boats out minus a few flaws. The biggest problem is this bug in the app when I am replying to a customer the text freezes and goes really slow. As I'm trying to type it it feels like windows 95 really slow and buggy. This happens with almost every conversation. I give my number out so they can call me since it is easier then typing and a better experience but boatsetter doesn't like you contacting by phone before an approved booking. Thisis unfortunate

It seems like as soon as I signed in, a few boats that were previously available disappeared. Seems like a bait and switch. Also, when messaging an owner, the keyboard on the app covers the message box, so you cannot see what you are typing.

Thank you for providing this feedback. Regarding the keyboard, we suggest adjusting the text size in your phone settings to. Boats can get booked quickly during peak times and we're sorry to hear that the ones you were interested in were unavailable. Please reach out to our support team at for help searching for boats!

Rental prices are pretty high. And then you realize that you have to pay insurance over and above the advertised rate. Owners are also paying for insurance, so that seems like a scam. I've had a few boats reserved where they couldn't find a Captain and had to cancel. There just weren't enough captain's for the number of boats trying to be rented. The police stopped us once and asked if it was an illegal charter. So I'm not sure how much of the paperwork was above board.

We apologize for any inconvenience. While we facilitate securing rental insurance, we do not control the rates - these are set by Geico (the rental insurance provider). We are working on expanding our Captain Network to meet the surging demand and we also provide all paperwork to owners and renters to ensure charters are legal.
