My-Villages marks management-tool milestone

Online service coordination and boat management tool The Boat Village now has 1,000 boaters.

My-Villages said the milestone was reached even before the official launch of The Boat Village to boat owners in southeast Florida, New England and other parts of the country.

“These early adopters are people who really understand that technology can improve our time on the water,” My-Villages founder and CEO Kevin Hutchinson said in a statement. “Modern boats are complicated and simplifying boat ownership is important.”

The Boat Village offers a free online community where owners can coordinate service online with technicians; search for information, share tips and tricks; and find service recommendations from manufacturers or just about anyone in the industry.
