Borrow A Boat acquires UK-based high-end yacht charter brokerage

Britain’s leading boat hire and yacht charter marketplace Borrow A Boat has acquired high-end charter brokerage, Helm.

The acquisition is a key milestone in Borrow A Boat’s growth trajectory, cementing its position as the largest boat and yacht charter marketplace in the UK. It also strengthens Borrow A Boat’s portfolio of luxury vessels and catamarans on the website, offering customers even more choice of boats within the high-end boating sector.

Helm was founded by charter industry experts Peter Harrison and Simon Morgan in 2015 and specialises in crewed charters and catamarans. Peter and Simon bring in-depth yachting knowledge, plus a strong and loyal customer base.

Borrow A Boat, the largest boat charter marketplace worldwide, lists over 35,000 boats in 65+ countries. Founded in 2016, the company has grown rapidly since formation, and has raised over £3.8 million in capital from a mixture of crowdfunding, private investors, and venture capital investors.

Matt Ovenden, CEO and founder of Borrow A Boat, sees the acquisition as an opportunity for further growth.

He commented:

Co-founder of Helm Peter Harrison is keen to capitalise on the partnership.
