Sharing Made Simple

There are more than 70 million Americans enjoying boating and approximately 13 million registered recreational vessels in the United States, however on average a boat is only used a total of 14 days per year.

In these challenging times, we are all looking for a way to maximize our investments and fractional boating or sharing is a great way to do that with a watercraft. Many boaters however, have been hesitant to get into a sharing relationship because of the inherent challenges including:

  • How do I ensure everyone gets equal time?
  • What about service and boat maintenance?
  • How can I easily mange billing and expenses?
  • and probably most important - how do I find the right people?

Enter Nautical Monkey!

Our service allows you to easily navigate through each stage of the process...


Our calendaring system provides the all the flexibility you will need to successfully share your watercraft and ensure everyone gets their allotted time on the boat.

  • Set up your calendar with one, two, four, or six slots per day.
  • Swap requests allow members to "swap" a day they have scheduled for another slot they may want.
  • Wait lists allow users to automatically reserve a slot if the original reservation is canceled.
  • Administrators can schedule other members, reserve the boat for maintenance, or suspend a member's access altogether.
  • Require users to confirm reservations. If a confirmation isn't received, the slot automatically opens up for other users to book.
  • Email notifications are sent to notify user of upcoming reservations, accepted or rejected swap requests, cancellations and more.
  • Limit the number of contiguous reservations and holiday bookings to avoid a single user monopolizing the boat.
