What comes to your mind when you watch the blue sea? Freedom, adventure, leisure, or something else? Perhaps the urge to go on a boat in the sea. It’s no longer just a luxury of the rich. You too can get on a yacht or a speed boat and experience the beautiful waters.
If you have been using a smartphone, then you must know about Uber. It’s the largest on-demand taxi service provider in the world. But they are not just a taxi company, they have dabbled into a lot more sections of transportation. You can book a taxi with Uber, or a helicopter with UberAIR, get your food delivered with UberEATS, and now get a boat ride with UberBOAT services.
Today we will be talking about the last service that I mentioned, UberBOAT. If you own a single boat, or a fleet of vessels, or no boat at all, you can start your own on demand boating app like UberBOAT. Yes, it’s true, you can start your own boat rental app even if you don’t own a boat.
On-demand boat service is the most recent addition to on-demand solutions. This idea is catching fire and will be a steady trend by 2020. So you still have a year’s head start over your competitors. So start working on this on-demand boat booking app like UberBOAT, and get the early mover advantages.
So, what does it take to get started with your own on-demand boating app?
Given that you already have a basic concept of the business and have found your perfect UberBOAT like app development company (if you haven’t then start from there), we will move on to the must-have features of an UberBOAT like app:
Login/Signup: The app should have a signup screen for the customers, boat captains, and the boat owners. Once the signup is done, this will be a login screen for them after that.
Choose the Captain: Besides the option to choose their own ride, the users may also prefer to choose their own captain. The crew, especially the captain, can mention their credentials and experience into their profile for the users to view.
Chat with the Captain: The users may want to personally contact the captain and give them specific instructions or learn more about the trip.
Weather Update: The users, as well as the captain, will get a daily weather update to know the perfect time and day for the sail. The ratio of trip cancellation can be reduced due to this feature.
Special Days Request: Perhaps the users want the boat to be decorated for their special days like birthday, anniversaries, etc. With this feature, the users can specify how they want the boat to be decorated and what special service they want.
Reviews & Ratings: The users can rate and review the rides which will be added to the profile of the crew as well as the boat.
Building an on-demand app like UberBOAT is a very lucrative idea for the entrepreneurs living in the coastal areas or near large water bodies. The competition drastically reduces just because of your location.
These are just a few key app features that I have mentioned. Apart from these, you can always add your own bells and whistles according to your knowledge of the business. But remember one thing, the app is only as good as its maker. Find the best on-demand solutions app developer to partner up.
