The Uber for yachts is setting sail — will you go aboard?


Why order a car when ordering your own yacht takes the same amount of effort and time? The geniuses at Immidia, a sort of Uber for yachts, have created an app that makes setting sail as easy as saying, “All aboard!” The app allows one percenters to charter a yacht for private use that will be delivered in no more than a couple of hours, reports Luxury Daily.

Users select how long they want to reserve the luxury sailing vessel for, input departure and destination locations and choose from available ships. Then they sit back, relax and in mere hours will be cruising off into the sunset with a selection of champers and tasty treats at the ready.

For now, the on-demand service is available in these places beloved by the wealthy: the French Riviera, Miami, Saint-Barthélemy and Dubai.

And if yacht services on the fly don’t float your boat, rumor has it Immidia plans to expand its services to include on-demand access to private jets, automobiles and luxury villas.
