The Baltimore Sun featured Snag-A-Slip, an Annapolis based startup, and the launch of our slip booking site, in their business section today! The paper covered details of our June launch and what Snag-A-Slip is hoping to do in the future as we grow.
As The Baltimore Sun reports: Snag-A-Slip hopes to solve the fragmented process of listing and finding slips, “with most people calling individual marinas to book trips, sticking with places they know, or relying on referrals from other boaters.” We’re hoping that boaters can use Snag-A-Slip to explore new destinations, book quickly, and experience great customer service.
The Sun goes on to describe that Snag-A-Slip is “like a Hotels.com for boat slips”. This is how Snag-A-Slip works: boaters visit the website and enter their dates, boat dimensions and power requirements, and destination, and are able to book available slips through the website. Boaters pay the same as they would with booking through the marina, without the hassle of searching for and spending hours on the phones with marinas in order to book a slip. Snag-A-Slip doesn’t charge boaters a fee to book. When a marina gets a reservation through Snag-A-Slip, the marina pays a percentage of the booking fee.
The article talks about technology in the marina industry, such as a slip booking site, as slow to affect marina and boater practices, but many acknowledge that boater behavior may change over time. Snag-A-Slip is hoping to be a part of this change!
