Click & Boat Heading to America for New Investors

Click & Boat, the boat rental startup for individuals and professionals, announced a fundraising for an undisclosed amount from Permira and Boats Group, the American platform for the online sale of online boats. The objective is to actively attack the American market.

Launched in 2014 by Edouard Gorioux and Jérémy Bismuth, Click & Boat offers a service that should appeal to tourists this summer: boat rental to individuals and professionals, with or without a skipper, for a few hours or a few days.

Rentals have been skyrocketing since April and the announcement of imminent deconfinement for the summer - a good omen that convinced investors to take part in the adventure.

Europeans in Search of Escape

Like many startups in the tourism sector, Click & Boat did not escape a drastic drop in its activity during lockdowns without losing its customers. “Until May 15, our activity was at zero since no one was able to travel. But from the deconfinement, the recovery was phenomenal before a blank quarter from October following the second confinement", commented Jérémy Bismuth.

The explosion in demand can be explained simply by the startup's promise: to offer a convivial moment with friends or family, in nature, all "in a reassuring healthy context". As a result, the company did quite well in 2020.
