boat rental is finally entering the Internet age. Think about it compared to a car rental. You can rent a car any time, virtually anywhere. Need a car at the airport? There are hundreds, if not thousands, to choose from. Need a bigger car to take a family vacation? You can usually rent one right where you live, from one of your neighbours even. Want to rent a sports car just because you can? No problem. Want to rent a boat? Most folks wouldn’t know where to start. This is changing fast. Samboat makes boat rental simple, fast, and easy. With thousands of listings all over the world, renting a boat has never been easier. Boats and water experiences of every size, shape, and power are available with the click of a mouse.
Why buy when you can rent?
This question didn’t really have an answer until recently, because finding a boat to rent was like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Where do you look? How do you work out the logistics? With Samboat, the world of boating is at your fingertips, and everything is taken care of. This raises an important question for boating enthusiasts and would-be boating enthusiasts alike
The upfront costs of boat ownership are generally pretty high
We’re talking tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the type of boat you like to use. Today’s ski/wake/surf boats with all the bells and whistles will land you north of $100,000. If you’re looking into something you can cruise/eat/sleep on, think $20,000—per foot—or more. That’s right. A nice 40-foot yacht can easily cost $800,000 or more. When you rent a boat, you pay for when you use it—so the upfront cost of ownership is eliminated. The only problem is that unlike most land-based second homes, boats depreciate just like cars do, meaning they lose value over time. Boats don’t measure their usage in miles, but in the hours that the engine has been used.
