That is, a service that allows a sailboat to be shared among 7 members and through an online calendar allows its use to be optimized, allowing all participants to go out sailing for 45 days a year. One forgets about maintenance costs, the cost of a berth, insurance: the MedBoat Sharing organization takes care of everything, ensuring that the boat is available at the dock, ready to go out.

Initiatives with the sharing economy as a model are multiplying. Car sharing is spreading in metropolises around the world as an alternative means of transportation. Airbnb, which started in San Francisco, has become a model for budget travel that competes with hotels even in the Old World. Fubles has spread in Italy as the system with which to organize a game of five-a-side football, all you need is an available field, the rest is taken care of by the platform, in this case all-Italian. In short, models are spreading that optimize the consumption of services that are expensive but have a low frequency of use, whether they are cars, a vacation home, or a soccer field.

Boat owners can also benefit from the savings of the sharing economy: on average through MedBoat Sharing’s ownership program and a 5-year boat sharing plan, savings of up to 90,000 euros can be achieved. The owner is guaranteed that the people using the boat will always be the same and with a common interest in keeping a boat always in good order, as well as, of course, the cancellation of all maintenance expenses and “worry-free” management of the boat, thanks to the MedBoat Sharing team.
