San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 25, 2013
MyVacationBoat.com, the new self-service yacht listing and rental site, has announced that Sleepafloat (sleepafloat.com), in-slip houseboat rental company in the Boston, Massachusetts Area, has listed its fleet of 35 houseboats and power boats for lease through the online service.
Sleepafloat offers an attractive alternative to hotel rooms, their vessels range in size from 30 to over 60 feet in length, with coverage throughout the eastern seaboard. Cities include Annapolis, Boston, Providence, Key West, Hollywood – Florida, Philadelphia and Washington D.C; all of which are now available for viewing on MyVacationBoat.com. Sleepafloat’s business model is such that their boats are used as in-slip rentals only and do not leave the dock. However, many of their rental locations have charter services available in the same marina.
“In only a few months we’ve started to build our reputation within the yacht charter industry,” said Paul Abraham, founder of MyVacationBoat.com. “Clearly this is a concept that yacht brokers, owners, vacationers and event planners continue to embrace.”
With the addition of Sleepafloat, MyVacationBoat.com now features vessels from California, Florida, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Mexico. MyVacationBoat.com launched its online service earlier this year to take advantage of the growing trend for “peer-to-peer” service websites. Recognizing that the yacht charter industry needed a central, online destination to facilitate boat rentals, MyVacationBoat.com provides charter listings with full details about the vessels, including boat specifications, location, rates, a visual daily/monthly calendar showing availability, and direct contact details. The listings also accommodate videos and make it easier to market boat rentals though online outlets and social media such as Facebook, YouTube, and Pinterest.
“We’ve recently added Key Point Indicators (KPI’s) to each of the social media links, which when used are self-promoting to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and Share. This will allow visitors to ‘Like’ or acknowledge the yachts and promote them through these social media connections," said founder Paul Abraham.
An annual subscription allows you to list your first vessel for $199 (USD), and $149 for each additional vessel. Discounts are available for volume yacht chartering inventories. As part of its service launch promotion, MyVacationBoat.com will waive annual subscription fees for the first charter brokers and owners to list their vessels.
MyVacationBoat.com is a wholly owned subsidiary of YouReserveIt Corporation. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, the company facilitates these peer-to-peer transactions by providing websites where customers can list and manage their private property in a global environment. MyVacationBoat.com is the first of these transaction sites, matching vessel owners with renters. For more information, visit http://www.myvacationboat.com.
