Company description

Sailo is a centralized online marketplace for boat rentals that connects people who want to rent boats to boat owners, charter operators and captains.

We use technology to change the fragmented $35B boat charter industry and make rentals easy and online. We take the slow, cumbersome and antiquated booking process and turns it into a seamless five minute experience. Today's consumers want to be able to select and book in minutes: with Sailo, users can search, compare and book in minutes.
