About GoBoat

GoBoat was started in Berlin in 2021 as a joint venture between Danish boat rental company, GoBoat ApS, and the German boat rental company, SolarWaterWorld. Both companies rent out electric boats. The partnership brings the internationally renowned GoBoat brand to Germany for the first time.

GoBoat offers sustainable, social experiences on the water. The brand was founded in 2014 in Copenhagen and is 100 percent owned by Kasper Eich-Romme, Carl Rand and Anders Ekelund Mørck.

The first location opened was Islands Brygge in Copenhagen, Denmark. Starting with 8 boats in 2014 and 3 employees, today GoBoat internationally employs about 200 people every year and has about 220 boats. GoBoat works closely together with local authorities (harbor, police etc.), municipalities as well as several NGOs.

GoBoat's approach in each locations is to fit in locally and partner with relevant business and neighbors. GoBoat has 20 locations in the world with five in Australia, four in England and one in Sweden as well as Italy and two in the USA. Worldwide GoBoat operates about 200 rental boats. Ocean Collectives is the lastest service - a boat club sailing on electric luxury boats.

Social sailing

GoBoats are designed with the social experience in mind. Each boat fits 8 people with a picnic table in the middle to create the best social experience.

The Danish "hygge" is a big part of the experience - regardless of which country or location you are sailing in.

The social aspect is also part of GoBoat's culture as we insist on social events, e.g. the yearly season's end party, and having fun while working.

GoBoat's work with sustainability

As part of GoBoat's DNA, sustainability is important for us. Sailing in clean water is just more fun. Therefore, we work on creating the smallest carbon footprint as possible and protecting the sensitive harbor environment.

We have chosen electric motors rather than gasoline ones. We lend fishing nets to children so they can clean up the water. We often do "clean ups" with various NGOs.

GoBoat culture

To ensure that our guests have extraordinary experiences sailing with GoBoat, our crew of friendly and helpful employees are carefully chosen based on their competences and knowledge and most importantly their great personalities. We work hard on creating the best culture where everyone feels included.

As a seasonal experience company with locations all over the world, we often do exchanges: Colleagues from Australia working in Denmark, Germany, UK and the other way round.
