Massachusetts-based DockHop launched a website and iOS app that connects boaters and marinas to help them find and book dockage and storage space.

“We want to make it easier for boaters to get out and explore their coastal areas, and connecting easily with marinas and dockage services is a key part of that,” founder and CEO Tyler Kneisel said in a statement.

The initial focus of DockHop is to help boaters find and reserve slips and moorings for the upcoming season, but the platform also enables them to locate storage facilities as the off­season approaches.

DockHop signed up an initial set of marinas to test and provide feedback and said it will be bringing new marinas on board, focusing on the Northeast and working down the coast to Florida.
