Boatsetter–International Peer-to-Peer Boat Sharing Company
Meet my friend Andrew Sturner who has been navigating the high seas of entrepreneurship for a quarter of a century.   After a short stint as a bankruptcy attorney in NYC, Andy traded in his suits for jeans and went on to participate in five startups, two IPOs and 3 exits.

In 1993, he sold his first startup to MovieFone where he served as VP of Business Development (IPO’d ‘94 and sold to AOL).   A few years later, he moved his family to south Florida where he joined the founder of (IPO’d in ‘97 and sold to CBS) launching one of the world’s first commercial websites in August of 1995.  In 2002, Andy decided to wed his business, legal and commercial expertise with his love of boating, and he founded Aqua Marine Partners, owner and operator of a portfolio of marina real estate and incubator of marine technology companies.   As a seasoned start-up executive and mentor to several startups, in 2010, Andy and a few fellow YPO members observed that the South Florida tech eco-system needed a shot in the arm so they co-founded a Miami-based angel investment group AGP Miami.

A few years later, Andy received an investment pitch for a concept to create the “Airbnb of boats.”  Having run his own marina portfolio for more than a decade, a

nd having witnessed the effects of declining boat activity, Andy readily perceived the advantages of a peer-to-peer boat sharing scheme. Switching his investor cap for his entrepreneurial one, Andy co-founded his 5th startup and launched – a website that combines the rental mechanics of Airbnb with the on-demand labor dynamics of Uber.   Boatsetter, an international peer-to-peer boat sharing company, is quickly gaining traction with the millennial generation who are looking to experience life without owning expensive assets like boats.  As Andy describes it:  “Boatsetter is providing unforgettable experiences on the water making boating available to everyone regardless of their boating experience.  We offer over 3,900 boats, 1,500 captains, world-class insurance and a 24-hour free cancellation policy to ensure our customers have the best possible experience wherever their travels may take them.”
