In a few clicks, from an Android or iOS Smartphone , the user can find the boat that best suits his needs, letting himself be inspired by the different proposals. More than 145,000 customer reviews who have previously experienced Click&Boat are valuable in making the right choice. The boat too now has its digital tool to take to the open sea no matter where you are: in the metro, between two appointments, at home or even directly from the marina.

An instant and intuitive messaging system makes it possible to contact the owner and obtain all the necessary information before the start of the rental. Travelers can even make several reservation requests simultaneously for the same stay: as soon as one of them is accepted by the owner, the others are cancelled. The calendar function is also extremely useful: owners and customers can be informed in real time of the availability of boats, even in high season, directly from the port.
