June 18, 2013 – San Francisco, CA –, the world’s fastest-growing watercraft rental and charter marketplace, announced a new partnership with XINSURANCE, a dba of Evolution Insurance Brokers, LC, enabling renters to instantly obtain insurance coverage virtually.  XINSURANCE provides online rental liability insurance which can be accessed through a link on the GetMyBoat website.  The renter simply completes an online form, receives an immediate quote and purchases the insurance coverage in real time.* The entire transaction is seamless and takes just a few minutes to provide peace-of-mind to both parties.

“Our partnership with XINSURANCE is fantastic for renters who want to be covered while out on the water.  It also protects watercraft owners that want their renters to have coverage prior to hitting the water,” said Bryan Petro, Head of Product for GetMyBoat.  “In any marketplace platform, trust is of paramount importance. XINSURANCE helps us create an environment where trust can be built quickly, reliably and fruitful.  What’s exciting is this is just the beginning of a long line of innovative insurance products that will be offered via the GetMyBoat/XINSURANCE partnership.”
