Once a boat owner or boat user has made a booking and payment via The Waypoint you’ll receive all their contact details, payment information and boat specifics via email.

The booking confirmation email from you will include useful information about the berth including directions, photos, gate codes and navigation hazards.

You can take payments for berths round the clock, as boat owners and boat users can book berths online up to 12 months advance as well as last minute.

The Waypoint allows your berth owners to:

  • Go online and let you know when their berth is vacant
  • Use a smartphone app to change their berth status as their plans change
  • Update their vacancy status via the dashboard
  • Update their status automatically when booking a berth elsewhere

And via the system it's easy to offer your berth owner a financial incentive that can simply be added to their account

Don't take our word for it...

"Very quickly it seemed to offer a great opportunity for both the business and our customers. Universal Marina is based on the river Hamble in the UK where the choice of marinas is high, we saw that the online booking forum would increase the exposure of the marina to visiting yachtsmen, whilst simultaneously giving financial reward to our customers. The ease of Waypoint means that at the click of a button you can simultaneously inform all visiting yachts and the marina staff that your is a berth available. Universal Marina will be incentivising the scheme to encourage the bertholder involvement through sharing the visitor revenue gained through Waypoint with them direct."
Richard Burlingham - Universal Marina
