Boatbookings goes mobile – launches free iPhone app

We believe that mobile computing will fundamentally change the yacht charter market, and the entire yachting business as well. Amazing products such as the iphone and blackberry, which essentially are small mobile computers, provide the ideal platform for delivering timely information about yachts and yachting. And they’re only going to get better!

If you are with friends planning a charter, you should be able to research boats together, contact the broker, reserve a boat and flights, look at weather patterns and research itineraries, all while sharing a beer at a local watering hole.  This is our goal, and we have released the first version of our iPhone app designed to provide exactly these features.

The initial version of the Boatbookings iPhone app, the first in the industry, allows you to track special offers to find great deals, search the entire database of boats for charter, and even calculate CO2 emissions from your voyage. The App is free, and downloadable immediately. Just go to iTunes and search for boat bookings, and you’ll find it!
