Boatsetter is an a peer-to-peer boat rental platform. It is based in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

Boatsetter’s online platform comprises over 50,000 boat listings. It connects boat owners, renters, and captains across 700 locations.

Before onboarding, Boatsetter implements a pre-screening test for all potential renters to assure adherence to insurance, safety guidelines, and specific boat-owner criteria. The platform allows qualifying individuals the option to rent boats without the necessity of a licensed captain. It is customary for boat owners associated with Boatsetter to provide rental services for their vessels on a half-day, full-day, or longer customized charter periods. The platform facilitates boat rentals, particularly vessels measuring between 28 and 60 feet, irrespective of user boating proficiency. Additionally, the platform offers an optional service to pair renters with professional captains, licensed by the U.S. Coast Guard. The rental price is determined by the boat owners, while Boatsetter accrues 20 percent of the rental fee as commission.

Through another service called Boatsetter Lux Charters, it provides luxury boats and yachts for rent. 

Boatsetter has been described as the Airbnb for boats.
