The Swedish-Finnish app Skipperi, founded in Finland in 2017 by a combination of influencers and people in the boat industry, helps boat owners rent their boats online.

Fewer young Swedes want to own and manage their own boat, but the interest in sailing and boating is still great. From a practical point of view, the arrangement makes sense: The typical leisure boat in Europe is not in use for 90 percent of the time even in season. Renting a 30-foot sailboat can cost about $1,400 per week, a smaller motor boat for Stockholm’s inner archipelago is around $200 a day.
