What's it like to rent your boat with Beds on Board?

At Beds on Board we care about connecting guests who are looking for unique accommodation with owners who want to offset the cost of running their boats.

Our boat owners are passionate about sharing the exciting experiences they have had on the water, but don’t just take our word for it.  

We asked some of our most popular boat owners why they chose to rent out their pride and joys.

Beds on Board have made the whole process of renting out the boat really easy

"I’ve been using Beds on Board to rent out my boat for the past two years and it has only been a positive experience. I thought when I started that people might leave the boat in a poor state, but the guests are tidier than I am!

Beds on Board have made the process of renting out the boat really easy.It has more than paid for the mooring fees, and I have met some really interesting people."

I was reassured my insurance would cover any damage

“When Jason from Beds on Board first approached me about listing my boat, I was hesitant. Concerned guests wouldn’t treat the boat well, I took the plunge after being reassured that my insurance would cover any damage caused by the guests. Since then all I can say is that it’s been tremendous.

My Sunseeker is moored in what I think is the most beautiful marina in the whole of the south coast. We like to take her out especially in the winter months, so renting her out in the summer to help offset the cost of the mooring has been great.”

I think it is a really positive way of introducing people to marina life

“We get between 10-15 bookings a year which is plenty for me. It means the boat earns some income towards its keep but I get to still enjoy it most of the year.

I think it is a really positive way of introducing people to marina life and the boating community. One couple who stayed on my boat enjoyed it so much they have now bought their own boat.

The ongoing maintenance of a boat is expensive, and I put any income I make on Beds on Board back into my boat.”

I love meeting new people and sharing their experiences

“I think you have to enjoy people. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. Most importantly I want people to experience the joy I have in experiencing the barge and the canal in London -  A real hidden gem!

I’d suggest other boat owners explain the quirks of staying on a boat and also supply guests with some local information. People also want to experience something different and outside of the norm and insider, local info is always really well received.”
