Borrow A Boat acquires US yacht charter platform

UK boat hire and charter marketplace Borrow A Boat has bought US-based peer-to-peer yacht charter platform KellyBoat, as it seeks to expand within the US market.

In a statement, Borrow A Boat says the acquisition of KellyBoat, a New England-based yacht charter platform founded by Kelly Lyden, will continue its growth strategy in the US, which to date is the fastest growing market for the company.

The yacht charter marketplace Borrow A Boat, which was founded in 2017 by Matt Ovenden, now offers boat charters in over 65 countries and, with this latest acquisition, will see US boat hires focussed on New England and Palm Beach.

The company says Lyden’s expertise will allow them to add more vessels in New York, Chesapeake Bay, Cape Cod, Rhode Island, Fort Lauderdale, and Miami, plus the Great Lakes. Customers can currently choose from a variety of vessels, including sailboats, motorboats, riverboats, RIBs, catamarans, gulets, luxury yachts and superyachts.
