Boatsetter said it formed a new partnership with Wally Castro Marine in Fajardo, Puerto Rico.

The international boat-sharing service said the deal is the first of its kind in the Caribbean.

Boatsetter said its online platform connects everyday boat owners to renters, giving vacationers and residents more accessible boat rental options while providing boat owners with a way to monetize their boat when it’s not in use. The service gives renters the freedom to design their own Puerto Rican excursion.

“Boatsetter’s partnership with Wally Castro provides vacationers in Puerto Rico who are looking for the experience of a lifetime with a new solution for getting out on the water on their own schedule,” Boatsetter.com chief marketing officer Pablo Vidal said in a statement.

“Boatsetter’s industry-leading boat rental service provides vacationers and locals interested in enjoying the boating lifestyle with easy and affordable access to the water.”

Wally Castro Marine is named after its president, who has been active in the boating industry for more than 30 years. The company also services, repairs and offers maintenance for all boat brands.
