New Digital Platform Connects Boaters with Private Dock Owners

A Maryland-based startup has launched an online platform connecting boaters with private dock owners.

Founders of Dockshare, Nate and Gina Young, say it comes from their own personal experience as boaters. “We don’t feel like there’s a lot of places we can travel around to – pop into the boardwalk – grab some popcorn or ice cream. So, from our own experience we realize that there’s a gap in the market,” said Nate Young.

They said they initially launched the platform in May of 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. They used the time to learn about their customers.
