This Cool New App Is Like An Airbnb For Dockage

Maryland startup Dockshare helps boaters find docks and dock owners make extra income.

Dockshare, a Maryland-based startup, has announced the launch of a new online platform that connects boaters with private dock owners to rent their docks for hours, days, weeks, or longer. The platform provides a safe and easy way for boaters to access more dockage options and an extra income source for dock owners. Here’s how it works.

Private dock owners can promote their under-utilized docks to boaters through professional profiles. Dock owners can list a dock on their mobile phone or desktop computer for free without any upfront costs. They share information about the dock: photos, description, amenities, availability, pricing, and specs on the profile. Pricing is determined and finalized by the private dock owner. Upon arrival by the boaters, dock owners accept payment through the secure Dockshare system and start earning income.
