Marina Ahoy is the only service for guest marinas that provides full interaction with sailors 24/7 to increase harbours profitability and sailors wellbeing.This is a customer service touchpoint for marinas that is connected in real-time to the sailors self-service app.

Modern marina management is still mainly paper-based making it resource inefficient and inconvenient for the marina clients - the sailors. There is a lot of waiting and searching while arriving into a marina, web-based booking sites suffer from a delay up to 24h hours and the service costs are not clear.

Marina Ahoy is free for sailors. Our business model is based on the revenues from the transaction fees of the marinas and monetizing third party services.

There are 4500 marinas with 1,75M berth in Europe. 10 000 marinas in the US + rest of the world. The leisure business is growing and they just start to implement ICT.

We started less than a year ago from VUNK Garag48 event, were selected to TOP30 in Ajujaht, won the Wärtsiläs Marine Mastermind competition and were accepted to Startup Sauna accelerator out of 700 applicants.

Marina Ahoy MVP as a digital logbook for marinas is beeing piloted in 15 marinas in Estonia and Latvia. Active sales will begin this autumn after the Payment functionality is live.

This is an excellent idea that could very well become the ubiquitous app for sailors to find a place in the marinas they want and for marinas to more easily manage the services they provide.
The Marina Ahoy team are professional and smart and have what it takes to make this a success.
