Set sail on Colorado lakes this summer with the "Airbnb for boats"
We've told you before about the app that works like Airbnb for pools. Now allow us to introduce the "Airbnb for boats."
Why it matters: Colorado offers some of the most scenic lakes in the country, including Blue Mesa Reservoir and Lake Granby. Having access to a boat lets you enjoy the water's beauty to the fullest.
How it works: GetMyBoat is a company that lets owners rent out their watercraft — including Jet Skis, kayaks and paddleboards — in roughly 9,400 locations around the world.
Zoom in: In Colorado, the site has dozens of rental locations, from Durango to Fort Collins and more. Prices range from $8 an hour for an inflatable kayak to $975 a day for a powerboat.
- State law allows anyone aged 16 and up to operate a boat or watercraft without a license on public waters. But some boat owners offer captains upon request.
Of note: Owners who want to list their vessels should make sure they're up to code and insured.
- GetMyBoat also doesn't offer insurance for either owners or renters.
