Move over Uber: New app offers yacht-sharing

Cruising is already one of the cheapest ways to travel, but this yacht rental startup could be giving cruises a run for their money. No longer for the super rich, yachts can now be rented in Europe for a mere €99 ($117) per day. That’s the promise behind Float, a disruptor that launched this past June in Monaco and St. Tropez — and that’s quickly expanding to other major seafaring markets. Float lets you book as little as one “seat” if you don’t have seven friends to defray the cost of a yacht charter, or you can gather a group of friends and buy out a sleek little cruiser. Sign up on the app or website, pick your origin and destination, select the number of seats you want to book, and input your credit card. Moments later a boarding pass is sent to your Apple Wallet. No contracts, no surcharges, and no hidden costs.
