Yachtie starts moorage company

ADVERTISEMENT

Seattle-based Moorage Market has launched a boater-to-boater and marina-to-boater online marketplace where boaters can rent private boat docks, dry storage, mooring buoys, and marina slips directly from owners.



The company says it removes the anonymity of classifieds and marinas by creating a trusted community with peer and user reviews.



The company was founded by former yachtie John Martin who sailed from Alaska to the Black Sea aboard sailing and motor yachts such as S/Y Felicita West, M/Y Seven Seas, and M/Y Hermitage, first as a deckhand and finally as second officer.



He left yachting to go to law school and has launched this company. For more information, visit www.mooragemarket.com.
