Sailsquare allows skippers to earn extra money while sailing with their boat, reducing running costs or even turning their passion into a professional activity. Sailsquare.com is a peer-to-peer marketplace like many others (like for house sharing, car lifts and so on) but exclusive for sailing experiences: it connects skippers and boat owners with people eager to experience sailing, whether it is a day trip, an island-hopping week, an oceanic passage or any other sailboat experience.
After an application process, skippers can start listing sailing experiences all around the world, deciding price, itinerary, dates and the type of crew wanted. Travelers can then browse among an extremely wide choice of ideas created by both private and professional skippers, choose their favorite, contact the skipper and proceed with the booking process.
It works like a social network, as both skippers and travelers have a profile with a personal picture and description, interact through a message system and start following each other. Trust and safety are guaranteed both by feedbacks and a secure payment system which assure both parts respect policies of the platform.
Signing up for sailsquare and listing holidays is free; in exchange for the service provided they ask a commission on the collected fees, only for holidays that actually take place.
Thanks to Sailsquare, now skippers can gather people from all over the world who share the same idea of sailing, and everyone has the opportunity to know travel mates before living the experience; combined with the feedback tool, it ensures an extraordinary experience for both skippers and travellers.
