Boat rental site Click&Boat, the ‘airbnb of the seas’, has appointed travel & lifestyle agency GEC PR to represent the peer-to-peer platform in the UK.
Click&Boat has its global head office in Paris, but since its creation in 2013 has seen bookings grow exponentially year-on-year from the UK. Britain is currently the global company’s third biggest market, and the site is proving popular with a diverse range of UK travellers – from group sailing enthusiasts and honeymooners, to families that love independent travel and millennials, who tend to be digital natives and appreciate the social element p2p boating offers.
Heading up the account at GEC PR is Director Fiona Anderson, who said: We’re delighted to be working with Click&Boat, a real disruptor brand that has transformed the global boat rental market. The founders of Click&Boat are truly innovative pioneers and GEC PR is looking forward to helping Click&Boat become a name synonymous with sailing breaks and holidays here in the UK.”
Click&Boat was born from a simple observation: that there are millions of boats just sitting in the harbour for most of the year, and that is expensive for boat owners. Click&Boat allows owners to safely and intelligently cushion their boat expenses by renting to other individuals.

Click&Boat is a boat rental site created in 2013 by two young French entrepreneurs: Edouard Gorioux and Jérémy Bismuth. This start-up was born from a simple observation: that there are millions of boats just sitting in the harbour for most of the year, and that is expensive for boat owners. Click&Boat allows owners to safely and intelligently cushion their boat expenses by renting it to other individuals.
In 2017, the “Airbnb of the seas” opened its platform up to professional boat rental companies and aims to become the world reference for boat rental.
