Anchor Yacht Rentals, a Tampa FL-based boat marketplace, raised $2.5M in funding.
The round was led by Silverton Partners.
The company intends to use the funds to extend its presence across major US and international travel markets.
Led by Zach Hatraf, Anchor Yacht Rentals provides a marketplace that connects a community of Captains and boat owners with people in search of on-the-water experiences. The platform provides users with access to an array of turnkey nautical services and experiences, insurance, a dedicated concierge team, and local US Coast Guard Licensed Captains who are familiar with the local waterways.
The company, which received the United States Coast Guard (USCG) stamp of approval for safety standards, has grown into 700+ listings across 20+ cities, deploying Coast Guard Certified Captains that are trained in CPR, First Aid, safety, navigation, and subject to a Homeland Security background check and random drug tests. Anchor is currently available in cities across Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New York & Washington, D.C.
