BoatUS said a new partnership with the unified booking and marketing platform Dockwa enables the boater group’s members to find and book a slip with just a few taps on Dockwa’s app.

BoatUS said Dockwa’s platform greatly simplifies transient slip booking and is a seamless and secure process that streamlines communication and payment via an innovative digital platform that no longer requires reservations via email or phone.

BoatUS said members who use the Dockwa app or choose to book online at Dockwa.com will have booking fees waived when arranging dockage at any BoatUS participating marina.

Discounts will be subject to specific marinas in Dockwa’s network. The member perk is in addition to the transient slip discount offered to BoatUS members, which the group said typically reflects a 25 percent savings.

BoatUS members can sign up for Dockwa by entering their membership number during the registration process, where all applicable discounts will be automatically applied.

“This is the most convenient way for our members to book their transient reservations for docks and moorings,” BoatUS vice president of membership Heather Lougheed said in a statement.

“No waiting for a callback, no voicemail or web forms to fill out. Just tap the Dockwa app, book and dock. You don’t even have to bring your wallet, as payment is automated. If weather causes you to change your plans, it can be done with Dockwa’s easy messaging feature.”

Additional benefits for marina managers through the Dockwa platform include a user-friendly web-based dashboard that lets operators review and confirm reservation requests, customer relationship tools, management capabilities and an easy and secure method for collecting payment.
