More people on more boats more often

More people on more boats more often

(PR.co.nz) Media Alert - Boatsurfers.com Launching Soon!

How would you like to borrow a boat anywhere in the world, whatever you need it for?

As of 1st July 2014, that's what the founders of Boatsurfers.com, Kiwi Rowan Alexander, Craig Badcock and Ryan Davey are enabling people to do!

Boatsurfers.com has already been featured on mysailing.com.au, boatsales.com.au and karryon.com.au to name a few. The mysailing.com.au article was second in traffic only to Alinghi and Red Bull crashing.

There are so many people in the world whose expensive boat just sits around doing nothing because they can't always get crew to go out with them. And there are a lot of people who would love to go out on a boat on a regular basis or while travelling, but can't afford a charter.

That's where Boatsurfers.com comes in. Here is an example of how it works:

Joe lives in Auckland is travelling to Melbourne next month. Joe would like to go sailing while he is in Melbourne, but he cannot take his boat.

So, Joe goes to Boatsurfers.com and searches for people who are happy to take others sailing in Melbourne. He requests a trip with a Boatsurfers.com member (Sam), for a specific date. Sam agrees.

Joe and Sam work out the details of the trip between themselves via the Boatsurfers.com website. This includes who is paying for consumables, bringing food etc.

They go out on a trip and afterwards they provide each other with feedback on Boatsurfers.com. This means that if Sam wants to go on a boat anywhere else, people will know that he is a good guy.

Simple, safe and affordable. You can also view the video on www.boatsurfers.com.

Now Seeking Founding Members:

Rowan, Craig and Ryan have all invested considerable time and funding into the venture, and have designed all the systems required for Boatsurfers.com to operate effectively. They are now looking for founding members. Founding members can sign up through Pozible.com or via www.boatsurfers.com. Supporters are offered a variety of rewards ranging from a limited edition t-shirt, all the way through to life-time memberships and one, 3-day, all expenses paid boating trip with some of the Boatsurfers.com directors!

For more details, or to arrange an interview, contact rowan@boatsurfers.com, or call Rowan Alexander at our offices on +61 3 6423 2695 or outside of business hours on +61 437 826 397. We can provide a draft article for reference.
