GPDock builds app for marina slip reservations

ADVERTISEMENT

GPDock, a community-based online reservation system recently launched at the Miami boat show, is designed to make the process of reserving a marina slip easier for boaters and marinas.

GPDock offers 24/7 access to a database of marinas. Users can log on, check a marina’s availability for the desired days, compare amenities, read customer reviews and book from the mobile app or website. The GPDock mobile app also can be used as a mobile wallet to pay for fuel and other services at selected marinas.

For owners of private docks, GPDock can take reservations and manage the rental process from their smartphone.

“I created GPDock because I wanted to combine two of my passions – life on the water and technology. I found out that every time I was planning a boat trip, the marina research process was difficult and time consuming,” Carlos Courtaux, CEO of GPDock, said in a company statement. “My goal with this platform is to make this process much easier for boaters, and in turn, drive more business to marinas.”

GPDock has 175 marina partners in Abaco, Bimini, Eleuthera and Freeport in the Bahamas, as well as throughout Fort Lauderdale and Fort Myers, Florida. The company said it is recruiting more partners in key boating destinations throughout the U.S. and Caribbean. For more information, visit GPDock.com.
