BoatBuddy Club is a groundbreaking concept taking the boating community by storm. Hailed as Miami’s premier shared yacht rental service and founded by serial entrepreneur Ari Gold, BoatBuddy Club is much more than a service; it’s a community that connects like-minded individuals, couples, and small groups to enjoy unforgettable yacht experiences together.

BoatBuddy Club’s inception was a response to Ari’s personal struggle with the soaring costs of boat rentals in Miami. While the joy of weekend boating with friends was unrivaled, the financial and logistical challenges presented significant obstacles. The idea of BoatBuddy Club took root as a service that would connect individuals with a shared passion for the water, fostering a community of like-minded individuals seeking affordable yachting experiences.

This vision extends beyond a mere rental service as BoatBuddy Club aims to cultivate genuine connections and friendships. In Ari’s experience, several of his business partners were initially encountered on boats, forming deep connections that led to successful ventures together. With the rise of remote work and reduced human interaction, BoatBuddy Club has become a catalyst for building meaningful relationships while enjoying the beauty of Miami’s waters.

What sets BoatBuddy Club apart is its innovative approach to boat rentals. The concept involves grouping small parties and individuals together, taking care of all considerations for a yacht trip, such as captain, fuel, ice, drinks, and food. The company emphasizes, “It’s not where you boat; it’s who you boat with!” BoatBuddy Club’s pooling algorithm connects like-minded people based on specific criteria, ensuring everyone has a fantastic time on the water. BoatBuddy Club aims to make boating more enjoyable and accessible to people from different economic backgrounds.
