In support of an important industry segment, Cruzin is now a sponsor of the International Marina and Boatyard Conference (IMBC). Held Jan. 29-31 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, IMBC caters to marina and boatyard owners, operators and managers, as well as to dockmasters, harbormasters, marine consultants and those who build and repair boats.
Produced by the Association of Marina Industries (AMI), the annual event offers educational sessions and serves as a showcase for new products and methods. It also informs attendees about industry standards.
As America's leading online peer-to-peer boat rental and charter marketplace, Cruzin creates a nationwide shareable economy by connecting boat owners with those seeking to rent boats. The company protects clients with $1 million in insurance coverage and BoatU.S. towing services during the rental. Cruzin carefully selects its participating boat owners and pre-screens all renters. Membership is free at www.cruzin.com.
"Marina owners continue to see the benefit of working with Cruzin to enhance slipholder services," said Cruzin CEO Jaclyn Baumgarten. "We offer a safe and simple way for a marina's customers to help offset costs by renting their vessels to qualified boating enthusiasts. In many cases, just a few days of rentals can cover a month's slip expenses, making boating more affordable. It also brings more people into boating as potential future marina customers. IMBC is a great vehicle to deliver this message."
