We have been hard at work over the past year to deliver a game-changing product for both boaters and marinas. We are proud to announce that we will be showcasing Dockwa to our launch market at the New England Boat Show, February 14-22 in Boston, Massachusetts. We will be at booth 2846 right in-between the folks at Sperry Top Sider and Freedom Boat Club. Please stop by to say hello, and to get a peek at what we have been up to.
What is Dockwa?
Dockwa is a platform that connects boaters to marinas like never before. Through Dockwa, boaters will be able to search, reserve, and pay for their reservations with the click of a button, all through their mobile device. No more radio, phone calls, or waiting days for a confirmation.
We have built a product that allows marinas the ability to post their available transient inventory (dockage and moorings) to thousands of boaters in real time. Dockwa then creates a reservation process, which is easy and enjoyable for boaters and marinas.
For early access to the app, provide your email address through the link below. We will let you know when we are ready to launch in waters near you.
Why did we pick the New England Boat Show for our first public appearance?
That’s easy….New England is home to us, and Dockwa will be launching exclusively to the New England market this coming June. Last year, the New England Boat Show drew nearly 50,000 boating enthusiasts from the area. With expectations for this year to be bigger than ever, it is the perfect opportunity to provide all of you with an early look into how Dockwa plans on changing the game for boating reservations.
Boston has also been instrumental in turning this dream into a reality for us. Over the past several months, we have been working closely with the top marinas in the Boston Harbor. These businesses have helped us understand the pain points experienced by both the marina and boater, which Dockwa aims to solve for. We have been humbled by their enthusiasm and willingness to help create a world-class product to provide a better experience for their customers.
We are proud to say that before we launch, the majority of transient dockage in Boston Harbor will be live on the Dockwa platform. Boston, along with other major New England boating destinations, will be some of the first “Dockwa-enabled waters” in the world. We are working hard to expand quickly to others shortly thereafter. Good news for you boaters!
We are excited for the New England Boat Show, and would love to meet as many of you as possible. Stop by our booth for a demo of Dockwa and to pick up some gear!
