seatime idea was born when the founders of Mikko and Jan-Erik visited alternately in each other's sailboats and shared their experiences about hassles of boat maintenance, repair costs and the inconveniences. Both had a boat that was sitting idle far too much at the berth because there was simply not enough time available for sailing from the busy lives and the maintenance also took way too much precious time. We started looking around and noticed that the same case seemed to be applicable in almost every boat in various marinas.
Expensive boats are used for a only few weeks in mid-summer and the rest of the time they sit idle at the dock only collecting expenses and effort from the owners. In addition, the service mentality in the boating industry was considered poor at best and the prices way too expensive. We concluded that there had to be a better way to get what we and most people wanted out of boating but without all the negative hassles and waste of time and money. This is how we developed the Seatime concept which allows everyone to enjoy boating every year when they want - easily, flexibly and affordably.
