Boat Vacation Rental Services

Your boat and your slip are expensive luxuries. But now there are easy ways for your boat and your slip to become money-makers, not just money-takers.

•  You can turn your boat into a unique on-the-water hotel alternative for vacation
renters (and your boat never has to leave the dock!)

•  You can rent your slip to transient boaters when you’re out cruising on your
own boat

These are brilliant ways to cover the fixed costs associated with boat ownership and the entire process can be as hands-off, turn-key as you want it to be.

Motu Estate & Yacht Watch Services is an official U.S. Ambassador for HarbourSpot. When you list your boat and/or slip on, people looking for overnight boat accommodations or slip availability in your area can view your listing and book your boat or your slip online. This is a new and exciting concept in vacation rentals!

Your Turn-Key Resource
If you list your boat as an Overnight Onboard vacation rental, someone will need to greet your guests, welcome them aboard, familiarize them with the vessel, and be on-call should the guests have questions or require assistance during their stay. Some boat owners choose to serve as their own hosts. But for those looking for a turn-key, hands-off solution, Motu is here to help.

Much the same as we do for our land-based VRBO clients, we can ensure that your on-the-water guest experience goes smoothly—from check-in to check-out. This typically includes:

•  Coordinate, communicate, schedule and greet your arriving guests

•  Walkthrough with guests to familiarize them with your boat and the local area

•  24/7 emergency contact

•  Coordinate and supervise any major repair problems that require specialized marine services

•  Coordinate, communicate, schedule and check-out your departing guests

•  Manage changeover cleaning and linens services

•  Secure keys, fobs, parking passes and other access items between guest visits

All of the above include email and/or phone communications with you to keep you appraised of the status of each stage of the vacation rental process.
