The platform has put more than 7,000 users in contact with boat owners who organize sailing trips in more than 35 countries. The company prepares the jump to the German and Italian market
The Spanish startup, Sailwiz, has generated sales of more than 3 million euros since its inception, in 2017. Hundreds of boats, mostly sailboats and catamarans, offer seats on board through their website to spend vacations sailing around the islands and most popular destinations: the Balearic Islands, the Greek Islands, Sardinia, Croatia or the Caribbean, among others. The platform allows you to reserve places on a trip organized by the skipper of the boat. Most users travel alone or as a couple and join others to complete the three or four cabins that most boats usually have. "It's the easiest and most affordable way to navigate if you don't want to buy or rent a boat" say its founders. According to its founders, nautical tourism is experiencing unprecedented growth, which is expected to continue in the coming years. Until recently, sailing was intended for those who could afford to buy or rent a boat, who had a nautical qualification and knew how to run a boat or, failing that, could afford a professional skipper. Organized sailing trips published on Sailwiz eliminate these requirements, since for less than 1,000 euros it is possible to reserve a place and go on a week-long trip to one of the best nautical destinations in the world, with a local skipper. This proposal has discovered vacations on pleasure boats to many people who had never considered this form of travel before. It is an opportunity both for groups of friends or families, as well as for those who travel as a couple or alone since they can join the groups organized in the boat, destination, date and plan that interests them. The platform has signed agreements with the most important nautical schools in Spain to offer a wide variety of nautical courses for those who want to navigate on their own or have the necessary qualifications, so that they can organize the trips and offer places on board. of a boat owned or rented.Sailwiz leads this proposal for shared boat vacations in Spain and has just launched in the German and Italian markets, as part of its internationalization strategy that plans to expand to the rest of Europe and the Caribbean in the coming years .
