Boat owners can offer add-ons to renters from our list of choices. You can create, manage, and price each amenity from your Owner Dashboard.

Your saved add-ons will be available for renters who would like to customize their boating experience for an additional cost. This support article will tell you:

  • How to find add-ons on your Owner Dashboard 
  • How to create/delete add-ons
  • How to customize add-ons

Things to keep in mind

  • Add-ons payouts are made separately from your boat payout
  • Add-ons have a payout fee of $0.15 
  • Add-ons may be refundable (see your cancellation policy for details)
  • Add-ons will incur a tax, if the boat has a custom sales tax or is in a state where sales taxes apply
  • Add-ons have a lower service fee than the boat listing (5%), which covers the customer support for the service

How to find Add-ons

To find add-ons, navigate to your Owner Dashboard > My boats > Edit listing > Add-ons. To create an add-on, click the NEW ADD-ON button.



A dropdown menu will allow you to select an add-on option from our list. This list includes but is not limited to amenities like:

  • Ice
  • Cooler
  • Fishing gear
  • Snorkeling gear
  • Floating mat
  • Kayak
  • Photography
  • Inflatable toy
  • Tube
  • Bring a pet

After selecting the add-on, you will be able to input a price for the add-on. You may select the price to vary:

  • Per passenger (price X number of passengers the renter selects)
  • Per hour (price X amount of time the renter chooses)
  • Per booking (price X quantity renter chooses per booking)

In addition to pricing your add-ons, you must indicate the maximum quantity a renter can request and provide a short description of the add-on (120 characters max).

The add-on description will show during checkout when the renter is presented with the option to select add-ons as part of their booking.

Once you’re done filling out the add-on form, click Save. The add-on will now be available for renters to add to their boat rental during checkout.

To delete an add-on, navigate to the add-on you want to delete and click “Edit”. You will see the word “Delete” in red at the bottom.


Clicking on “Delete” will take you to this screen:


Confirm that you want to delete the add-on by clicking DELETE ADD-ON.

Changes to bookings

If an add-on is no longer available for any reason, you should delete it and notify all renters on any upcoming approved bookings that there has been a change.

Please contact us at to remove an add-on from a booking.

If a renter requests changes to their add-on(s), the owner must reach out to Boatsetter Support to adjust the booking accordingly.
