Borrow A Boat acquires German boat rental platform Zizoo

Boat rental and yacht charter marketplace Borrow A Boat has acquired Zizoo, the German boat rental platform, as part of its 2024 growth strategy.

The acquisition of the boat rental platform by Borrow A Boat, part of The Boat Engine Group, is set to create one of the largest boating marketplaces worldwide, and will see it expand its offering to more than 60,000 boats in 65+ countries, covering all three key market segments in boat rentals including day hires, boating holidays and luxury crewed charters.

Matt Ovenden, Founder and CEO of Borrow a Boat, said:

Zizoo, based in Berlin, is a boat rental marketplace for the holiday sector, and operates charters across the globe, including Croatia, Miami, the BVIs and Nassau.

Anna Banicevic, Co-Founder and CEO of Zizoo, said:

Borrow A Boat, with its HQ in London, was founded in 2017 and offers a variety of vessels to rent, including sailboats, motorboats, riverboats, RIBs, catamarans, gulets, luxury yachts and superyachts. The business purchased boat rental platforms including Barqo and Beds on Board before being acquired by Ovenden, plus a group of investors, in 2023.

Zizoo’s staff in Berlin and Athens will join Borrow A Boat’s respective teams in London and Amsterdam. Ovenden concluded:
