ANNAPOLIS, MARYLAND, September 11, 2019 – Snag-A-Slip, the leading online boat slip reservation service, announced today that it acquired SlipSure, the largest app for instant and same day boater bookings. This move firmly positions Snag-A-Slip as the category leader across all types of boater reservations, including long-term, short-term and instant bookings.
“Snag-A-Slip’s mission is to make booking slips seamless and as easy as possible for both boaters and marinas. The acquisition of SlipSure accelerates our mission by increasing the number of partner marinas that let boaters instantly book.” said Dan Cowens, Founder and CEO of Snag-A-Slip. “This means our boaters have the peace of mind that their slip is reserved and waiting for them, even if they book minutes before arriving.”

They have a way of giving us more choices, while simplifying those choices,” said Sherrie Norton, co-founder of SlipSure. “This is exactly what we set out to do when we created SlipSure. We are delighted to take this vision to new heights with Snag-A-Slip.” Paul and Sherrie Norton will be joining the Snag-A-Slip Advisory Board.
