How Our Site Works
We connect boat owners with boat renters. Boat owners create listings for their boats, including posting photographs, descriptions, availability dates, pricing and other criteria, and boat renters can view what is available and, if interested in doing so, book a boat rental through our Site. You can view the boats listed on our Site without registration, but you need to be registered to be able to list or book a boat. Boat.me is not a party to any agreements entered into between boat owners and renters, nor are we a broker, agent or insurer. We are not an owner or operator of Boats. We do not and cannot control the Content in any listing or profile or the condition of any Boat. We are not responsible for the actions or inactions of Members or others who use or view the Site and use our services. We expressly disclaim all liability to the fullest extent allowed by law. Our responsibilities are limited to facilitating boat rents and serving as a limited payment collection agent of each Owner for the purpose of accepting rental payments on the Owner's behalf from a Renter.
In order to access certain features of the Site and to list or book a Boat, you must first become a Member by registering and creating an account with us. You may register directly through the Site or through third party social networks. You may also link your Boat.me account with a third party social network account by either allowing us access to your third party social network account or by providing us with your login information to the third party social network account. By linking your third party social network account to your Boat.me account you represent and confirm that you are permitted to to give us your login information for or grant us access to your third party social network account and that doing so does not breach the terms and conditions of that third party site or will not cause us to incur any fees. You also acknowledge and confirm that by linking your third party social networking account to your Boat.me account, you grant us access to your content on your third party social network account. Your third party social networking account is governed by your agreement with the service provider of the third party social network. We are not responsible for your activities or content on your linked third party social networking account.
Your Boat.me account and profile is based on personal information provided by you to us. You agree to provide us with accurate and complete information and to update it as needed as soon as possible. You are not allowed to have more than one account on the Site. We reserve the right to suspend or terminate your account or block your access to the Site and Services if you have more than one account on the Site or provide us with false or misleading information. You also agree to immediately notify us if your Boat.me account is accessed by any unauthorized person.
Boat.me does not currently charge fees for the creation of listings. An Owner can list one or more Boats under one account. When listing his/her/its Boat, the Owner will fill in a questionnaire with the purpose of providing an accurate description of the Boat, and will be required to upload no less than four photographs of the Boat. The Owner will also provide the rental rate per hour/day/month in U.S. dollars and the availability and cost of captain service. Our commission is based upon the total cost of the rental charge and captain service. Owners will also indicate whether he/she/it or the Renter is responsible for fuel charges and the approximate fuel cost. We do not collect any commission on fuel charges and the Renter pays the Owner for fuel charge in person. Failure of the Owner to provide accurate information gives the Renter the right to cancel the booking and receive a full refund.
Once a Renter requests a booking of an Owner's Boat, the Owner is prohibited from requesting a higher price than in the booking request.
Owners are strictly responsible for all of the Member Content they post and are responsible for paying any and all Taxes and docking, port and other fees, as well as complying with all applicable laws, rules and regulations in connection with their Boats. We do not assume any responsibility for an Owner's compliance with any agreements with or duties to third parties, applicable laws, rules and regulations. We have the sole right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any listing for any reason, those we consider to be objectionable for any reason, in violation of these Terms.
Owners understand and agree that Boat.me does not act as an insurer or as their contracting agent. If a Renters requests to book an Owner's Boat, any arrangement or agreement entered into by such parties is between them and we are not a party to it. However, we will serve as the limited authorized payment collection agent of the Owner for the purpose of accepting, on behalf of the Owner, payments from Renters of such amounts stipulated by the Owner.
An Owner may request additional information about the Renter via email@example.com before confirming the booking request, such as having a valid boating certification or license, a profile picture or more details on the guests who will be accompanying the Renter.
Owners are required to obtain appropriate insurance for their Boats, as well as a city or state charter license, if required They should be familiar with and understand any exclusions to, and any deductibles that may apply for, such insurance policy, including, but not limited to, whether or not their insurance policy will cover the actions or inactions of someone other than the Owner.
- "Boat.me Fee"mean the fee we charge a Renter for using our Site and services to rent a Boat from an Owner. Our Boat.me Fee is 15% of the Rental Fee and is payable by the Renter. The Boat.me Fees are calculated and displayed to the Renter when sending a rental request to the Owner.
- "Rental Fees"means the amounts that are due and payable by a Renter in exchange for renting an Owner's Boat. The Owner establishes and is responsible for the Rental Fee for his Boat. We are not involved with the Owner deciding what to charge as a Rental Fee for his Boat. The Owner may in his or her sole discretion decide to include other charges in the Rental Fee, including, but not limited, to a cleaning fee or any other permitted fee or Taxes.
- "Service Fees"means collectively the Boat.me Fees and the Transaction Fees.
- "Total Fees"means collectively the Rental Fees and Boat.me Fees.
- "Transaction Fee"mean the fee we charge an Owner for using our Site and services to rent his Boat to a Renter. Our Transaction Fee is 5% of the Rental Fee. The Transaction Fees are displayed to the Owner when the Owner is asked whether to confirm or reject a booking request from a prospective Renter.
Owner Booking Procedures
If you are an Owner and a prospective Renter wants to rent your Boat, you will receive an email and will be required to either confirm or reject the booking request within 24 hours (the "Booking Request Period"). If you fail to respond to the email request before the expiration of the Booking Request Period, the request will automatically terminate. When a booking is requested through our Site, we will share with you the Renter's name and profile. If you are unable to confirm or decide to reject a booking request within the Booking Request Period, any amounts collected by us or the requested booking will be refunded to the applicable Renter's credit card and any pre-authorization of such credit card will be released. When you confirm a booking requested by a Renter, we will send you an email and status update on your Boat.me account.
We will collect the Total Fees at the time when the Owner confirms the Renter's booking request and will initiate payment of the Rental Fees (less Transaction Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Transaction Fees) to the Owner within 24 hours of when the Renter arrives at the Boat, except to the extent that a refund, if any, is due to the Renter. The time it takes for the Owner to receive payouts may depend upon the payout method chosen by the Owner. Some methods involve the use of third-party payment processors, who may impose their own additional charges for the use of their services on the Owner, including by deducting their charges from the payout amount.
If you owe or agree to pay us any amount, as a Renter or Owner, we may deduct and withhold the amount owing to us from any payout amounts due to you as an Owner, and use the withheld amount to setoff the amount owed to us. In addition to the amount due, if your account is delinquent or you otherwise have chargebacks on your account, you may be charged fees that are incidental to our collection of these delinquent amounts and chargebacks. Such fees or charges may include collection fees, convenience fees, or other third party charges. You hereby explicitly agree that all communication in relation to delinquent accounts will be made by electronic mail or by phone and may be made by us or by anyone on our behalf, including but not limited to a third party collection agent.
Appointment of Boat.me as Limited Payment Collection Agent for Owner
If you are an Owner, we will act as your, and you will appoint us, as your limited payment collection agent to collect Rental Fees from Renters. By paying us as your limited payment collection agent, you agree that when a Renter pays the Rental Fees and other fees through our Site, it is the same as if the Renter is paying your directly.
Each Owner agrees that Boat.me may, in accordance with our cancellation policy (i) permit the Renter to cancel the booking and (ii) refund to the Renter that portion of the Rental Fees specified in the cancellation policy, if any. Each Owner understands that as we accept payments from Renters as the Owner's limited payment collection agent and that our obligation to pay the Owner is subject to and conditional upon successful receipt of the associated payments from Renters. We cannot and do not guarantee payments to Owners for amounts that have not been successfully received by Boat.me from Renters. In accepting appointment as the limited authorized agent of the Owner, we assume no liability for any acts or omissions of the Owner.
Renter Booking Procedures
The Owners are solely responsible for honoring any confirmed bookings made through our Site. If you, as a Renter, choose to enter into a transaction with an Owner to rent his Boat, you agree and understand that you will be required to enter into an agreement with the Owner and you agree to accept any terms, conditions, rules and restrictions imposed by the Owner. You are solely responsible for performing the obligations of any such agreements. You acknowledge and agree that we are not a party to any agreement between you and the Owner, and that, with the exception of our collection and payment obligations hereunder, we expressly disclaim all liability arising from or related to any such agreements. Unless the Owner requires you to pay for Boat fuel or a Security Deposit as indicated in the listing, upon your payment of the Total Fees, your payment obligation to the Owner for the Boat Rental is extinguished, and we are responsible for remitting the Rental Fees (less the Transaction Fees and any Taxes in respect of the Transaction Fees), in the manner described in these Terms. In the event that we fail to remit any such amounts as described in these Terms, such Owner will have recourse only against the Company, not the Renter.
The Total Fees payable and timing of payment will be displayed to a Renter before the Renter sends a booking request to an Owner. The Owner is required to either confirm or reject the booking request within the Booking Request Period; otherwise, the requested booking will be automatically cancelled. If a requested booking is rejected or expires, all amounts collected by us will be refunded to such Renter and any pre-authorization of such Renter's credit card will be released, if applicable.
You as a Renter agree to pay Boat.me for the Total Fees for any booking requested in connection with your Boat.me account if such requested bookings are confirmed by the applicable Owner. In order to establish a booking pending the applicable Owner's confirmation of your requested booking, you understand and agree that we, on behalf of the Owner, reserve the right, in our sole discretion, to (i) obtain a pre-authorization via your credit card for the Total Fees or (ii) charge your credit card a nominal amount, not to exceed one dollar ($1), or a similar sum in to verify your credit card.
The amount of the Total Fees payable by you at the time of sending a booking request will be decided by the Owner as indicated on his Boat listing. Some Owners will require full payment of the Rental Fees when sending a booking request and others may permit a Renter to pay a portion of the Rental Fees when sending a booking request and the rest later in the event the booking request is made more than ten days prior to the requested booking date(s). However, partial payment is not permitted if the booking request is sent ten or less days prior to the requested booking date(s). In any event, we will collect the Total Fees or a portion thereof, as required by the Owner in his listing, once Boat.me receives confirmation of your booking from the Owner. You are solely responsible for any fees that may be charged by your bank.
An Owner may require the Renter to make a security deposit when booking his Boat. Security deposits are paid by Renter directly to the Owner. However, if requested by an Owner, we will collect a security deposit for the booking or obtain a pre-authorization of the Renter's credit card for the security deposit. Boat.me is not responsible, however, for accessing any claims relating to the security deposit.
Gratuity is not included in the final price. Remember to thank your captain and the crew for their service!
15-20% is a standard in the business, payable to the captain upon completion of the trip.
Note: some owners may impose a mandatory gratuity. Boat.me is not responsible for collecting/paying gratuity.
Cancellation and Refunds
If, as a Renter, you cancel your requested booking before the requested booking is confirmed by an Owner, we will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and/or refund any nominal amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time. If, as a Renter, you wish to cancel a booking after it is confirmed by the Owner but at least six days before the booked date(s), we will refund your Rental Fee but keep the Boat.me Fee. If you cancel your booking after it is confirmed by the Owner but it is 5 or less days from the booked date(s), no money will be refunded to you. If the Owner cancels your confirmed booking, we will cancel any pre-authorization to your credit card and refund any amounts charged to your credit card in connection with the requested booking within a commercially reasonable time.
If, as an Owner, you cancel a confirmed booking, you agree that we may apply penalties or consequences to you or your listing, including (i) publishing an automated review on your listing indicating that a reservation was cancelled, (ii) keeping the calendar for your listing unavailable or blocked for the dates of the cancelled booking, or (iii) imposing a cancellation fee (to be withheld from your future payouts or charged to the credit card on file in your account). You will be notified of the situations in which a cancellation fee applies before you decide to cancel.
We reserve the right to the cancellation and refund policy contained in these Terms in the event of extenuating circumstances. The Renter may cancel the confirmed booking by contacting us by email and provide written documentation to support the claim that extenuating circumstances warranted such cancellation. In such event, the Renter will receive a full refund and no payment shall be paid to the Owner. Some examples of appropriate extenuating circumstances include but are not limited to the following:
- A named or numbered storm within 150 miles of the Boat's pickup location;
- Safety concerns related to thunderstorms or lightning strikes or heavy winds;
- Owner cancellation, no-show, or refusal to allow access to the Boat;
- Unsafe condition of the Boat;
- Material inaccuracy of Owner's description of the Boat;
- On board features (including water, lighting, bathroom, electrical, heating and air condition systems) that are listed but do not exist or do not function as described or expected (within reason).
Owners can delete one or more Boats from their account at any time by sending a request to us at firstname.lastname@example.org; provided, however, confirmed bookings must be honored in accordance with the agreed upon terms. Any party can delete their account and profile on the Site at any time by contacting us as email@example.com. Deleting an account will relieve the deleting party of its outstanding obligations owed the Company or another party contracted with through the Site.
