Mariner Exchange, a mobile app that connects boat owners with marine service providers, has released its Android app and expanded coverage from the Chesapeake Bay to Florida and New England.
Boat owners can now browse over 3,000 marine service providers to find mechanical, electrical, structural and many other services. In addition, the platform has just surpassed 10,000 users and plans to continue its expansion up and down the east coast in the coming months.
“Maintaining your boat can be a huge pain and finding the right mechanic seems impossible at times. Our mission at Mariner Exchange is to make owning a boat easy by seamlessly connecting boat owners with reliable boat repair professionals. We’re very excited that Mariner Exchange is quickly becoming the go-to online hub to get your boat fixed,” said Alex Nicholson, founder of Mariner Exchange.
Mariner Exchange launched its iOS app in July 2016 and qexpanded to cover the Chesapeake Bay region. Nicholson grew up working in the industry in the service department of Annapolis, Md.-based Fawcett Boat Supplies where he first noticed the difficulties boaters had finding repair professionals.
“The marine services industry is hyper-fragmented and has a limited online presence. Mariner Exchange has positioned itself to remedy that problem,” said Nicholson.
Mariner Exchange also offers service providers lead-generation metrics so they know exactly how many calls, emails, and website hits they get over the platform.
Businesses who would like to be listed on Mariner Exchange can submit their company information at marinerexchange.com or download the service provider app and create a company profile.
