Molo, a tech startup from New York, said it launched a new marina management platform on the iPad and web for marinas and yacht clubs.

Molo said it brings simple marina management tools leveraging cloud technology to minimize information technology costs.

Molo said its service was designed in collaboration with marina managers and owners. Their user experience and interaction with the software is a constant priority. The company said its smart design brings ease of use to marinas and yacht clubs, allowing them to focus on running and growing their business. Reservations are created with a few simple clicks; payments are processed in the office or boat-side with just a few taps on the iPad.

Molo said its pricing is subscription-based and is matched to the number of slips in the marina. Monthly prices start at $199 a month for a 100-slip marina.

"Molo remains committed to helping the boating industry with powerful and simple tools for managing marinas and yacht clubs,” Molo co-founder Lucas Isola said in a statement. "Marinas are complex businesses with unique needs. Our team of lifelong boaters and marina professionals understand.”
