Why book with Boatico?
Because Boatico understands your needs
Boatico was founded by Lili & Ivo Naydenov, a passionate sailing couple. Over the years they have gained a lot of experience in cruising and racing at regattas. But more importantly, for more than 15 years they stood on the customer’s side – searching and booking boats worldwide. Boatico knows exactly what your struggles are and where’s the need for improvement in the business.
Because we deliver additional value for free
Chartering a yacht is absolutely not the same as booking a hotel room. There is a lot to know, to consider and to prepare. Boatico supplies you with additional sailing information in order to keep you safe throughout the whole process. We are here to help from the chartering contract, payment, booking a skipper, trip to the boat, the charter deposit at the marina, food supply, planning the itinerary, weather forecast, destination details and sightseeing opportunities.
Because we have the most modern tool for chartering a boat
The main idea behind the platform is to give experienced skippers and sailing rookies the best tool to find not only one of 10,000 boats, but the best fit for their needs, quickly and efficiently. Our web page is on the highest technical level, supporting the customers with an intuitive interactive design, awesome search filters, tons of information, a sailing blog and 24/7customer support via chat, mail and by phone.
Because transparency is part of our value system
For us as a family business, as sailors or simply as people who love their job, trust plays a major role. We approach every single request with vigor and personal commitment. Boatico offers the original price of the boat operator, with no additional fees, always. We are open and fair to the customer, but also to the boat owner, focused on winning their trust in the first place. We value transparency. That’s why twisting facts or using marketing tricks just for a short-time win are NoGo for Boatico.
Because we work with verified boat operators only
To be able to offer a really successful sailing trip and spare any inconvenience for our customers, we work only with professionals. Boatico relies exclusively on verified bases and boat operating companies. Those are partners who work professionally at the reception on the marina, by choosing your skipper, while check-in-out and provide top technical maintenance of the boats.
Because we offer financial safety for our customers
Boatico does not offer boats that could be a financial risk for you. Our own company and our complete yacht pool ( all charter partners and their boats ) are insured against insolvency by the EIS – European Insurance & Services. Boatico is also checked and trusted by Yacht Pool International – The most important financial guarantee for yacht charter companies and agents.
Because we offer solutions in force majeure situations
To support our sailors only at choosing and booking their favorite boat is not enough any more. At Boatico you can also book the best possible insurance for your needs. In this way you are staying flexible and could cancel any time with a 100% refund. We offer a variety of professional skipper insurances by Yacht Pool or an All-in travel insurance including Covid-19 by EIS.
Because we believe in the future of eco-friendly tourism
Aside from mass tourism or hotel complexes, enjoying nature and getting by with little is the best thing you can do today from an ecological point of view. We can only prove that a yacht trip is the most private and special way to spend quality time with family or close friends. This type of vacation offers the perfect opportunity to relax and retreat or adventure and explore. It is definitely a booster – for your health and for your mind.
