Vetting renters

All renters must have a verified Boatsetter account in order to message an owner or book a boat.

In addition, boat owners can set their own qualifications to verify a renter’s experience. You can outline required licences or boat operating experience in your listing description or during your conversations with renters. You may also request a sea trial with the renter to make sure both parties are comfortable. The boat owner has full control over who rents their boat. Rentals with unqualified parties can be cancelled at any time without penalty.
