American Sailing Association Announces Exclusive Partnership With P2P Boat Rental Marketplace, Boatbound

With peer-to-peer boat sharing now possible, ASA partners with the fastest growing boat rental marketplace, Boatbound, to certify the next generation of sailors.

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Sailing Association (ASA), the leading authority on commercial sailing schools in the United States, today launched an exclusive partnership with Boatbound, the nation's fastest growing peer-to-peer boat rental marketplace in the United States, to introduce more people to the sport of sailing via ASA schools, training, and certification programs.

"We've been excited about what the sharing economy can do for both individuals and the boating industry, and we are thrilled to be partnering with Boatbound, the leader in the peer-to-peer boat sharing space. This partnership will help ASA certify the next generation of boaters and continue the pursuit of our mutual goal to make sailing more affordable and accessible for everyone," said Charlie Nobles, Executive Director of the American Sailing Association (ASA).

As a result of this partnership, Boatbound members will receive access to ASA's extensive library of tutorials, educational and destination focused content, as well as discounts on ASA sailing certification courses. Once a sailor completes a certification course, they will have the ability to add the ASA credentials to their boater profile on Boatbound. This enhancement will give boat owners using the Boatbound platform confidence in the qualifications of future renters. In addition, all ASA members will receive a $25 boating credit to use toward renting a boat  in any one of the thousands of Boatbound destinations.

"We are passionate about growing the sailing community through Boatbound and could not think of a better partner than the American Sailing Association to make it happen. As we continue to expand the Boatbound brand, we believe introducing new boaters and sailors to ASA and their world class certification courses and sailing schools, will further enhance our focus on a safe Boatbound experience," said Aaron Hall, Founder of Boatbound.

Registering on Boatbound is free for both boat owners and renters. Boatbound allows boat owners to rent their boat to pre-screened, qualified renters, helping offset the cost of boat ownership. Boat owners decide who can rent their boat and they also set the price and availability of the rental. Renters can find any type of boat, rigged the way they want it, at any price, anywhere in the United States.

Boatbound and the ASA will continue to work through various social, media, and policy level channels to promote quality sailing education and certification.
