About dockshare: Connecting boaters to docks

Dockshare is connecting boaters to docks through owners who want to rent their docks while safely earning extra income. It is a convenient and flexible way for boaters to access private dock listings and have the freedom to dock whenever they want. In the past, boaters have relied on social media, message boards, and newspaper ads to access private boat dock rentals. Dockshare is a safe and secure, easy to use, and mobile-friendly platform. 

Go boating, paddle boarding, canoeing, or kayaking even if you don’t live by the water – Dockshare caters to all types of watercraft.

Who We Are

Dockshare was founded by the husband-and-wife team of Nate and Gina Young.

Water enthusiasts themselves, Nate and Gina love spending days in the great outdoors, cruising around Maryland’s waterways in their boat. It was on one of their cruises that they realized a major gap in the marketplace.

It all started when they were out on their boat and couldn’t find a spot at a public dock. They found themselves looking around at all the private docks sitting empty and thinking what a missed opportunity – for the dock owner and boater – to offer the flexibility of temporarily renting a private dock.

They realized that they too were missing out on making their own dock available on their waterfront property where their dock sits empty the majority of the year.

Dockshare was created to solve both of these problems simultaneously by connecting boaters to docks.
