New Capt’n Boat service: a tool to automate seamen’s requests for boat rental companies

Publié le 30 août 2022

With a simple click, customers can find a professional seaman with their boat booking, thanks to the new Capt’n Boat tool developed for boat rental agencies.

Through the development of an external API to be integrated on the website of its partners, Capt’n Boat accelerates and automates the research and hiring of professional sailors.
This solution fits perfectly in the context of a constant increase in the demand for crew.

Professional seamen accessible in a single click with the new Capt’n Boat booking tool

Capt’n Boat’s first objective is to facilitate the recruitment of professional sailors for yachtsmen via its marketplace. Following this objective, the partners of Capt’n Boat and their clients now have simplified access to the more than 2,500 Capt’n Boat professional sailors spread over some forty countries.

By integrating the API on their website, rental and boat agencies make exchanges with Capt’n Boat fluid and automatic.

The final customer can then manage his request himself or delegate it to the Capt’n Boat Concierge service.

In addition, clients can specify criteria to qualify their request for a sailor:

– language(s) spoken,
– local sailor,
– pedagogue,
– comfortable with children…

This new tool is a real added value for boat rental companies who can now offer a complete solution to their customers. With this solution, they can delegate the requests for sailors to Capt’n Boat.

By booking a boat with a Capt’n Boat crew, the final client is guaranteed to use qualified and insured seamen, in compliance with the regulations applicable.

« Since the health crisis, we have seen a real increase in professonally crewed charters. This year, skippered yacht charters are up to 15% and up to 45% on our catamarans. »

This is confirmed by GlobeSailor: « We are experiencing a +15% increase in skippered charters compared to 2021. »

Click and Boat also agrees with this trend: « Skippers are present in 50% of monohull charters and in over 80% of catamaran bookings. Our partners need competent skippers more than ever to ensure a quality service to our clients. »
