French boat rental platform Click & Boat has raised €1 million from the Olma Fund.
The company will use the new investment to accelerate its growth in Europe and launch new services.
Click & Boat was created in 2013 by Edouard Gorioux and Jérémy Bismuth. The founders, realizing that the millions of boats sitting at European ports were costly to their owners, decided to create a platform similar to AirBnB to rent out these boats and make them profitable, while at the same time making them available to individuals seeking an affordable way to set out to sea. The startup has also launched a luxury yacht charter platform: Click & Yacht.
Today, the startup offers more than 8,000 boats in 362 ports in 22 countries, and has 80,000 users. Click & Boat has three new services planned for the coming year.
