BOSTON, Aug. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- LureBoats has launched a new online marketplace called that is designed to connect fishing charter captains with customers and provide a simple and efficient resource for customers to book private fishing charters.  

Similar to how AirBNB or OpenTable have transformed the process of securing vacation rentals or dinner reservations, the site is designed to enable customers to search through a number of professional listings, compare options and make reservations online.  LureBoats confirms the charter and securely processes the booking deposit.

LureBoats also provides boat captains with advanced online marketing and social media exposure to expand their customer base and increase the number of booked trips.  There is no cost to register on the LureBoats site, providing boat captains with a risk-free opportunity to increase sales and exposure.  The LureBoats team facilitates the registration process and can list new boats the same day captains sign up.  Every booking request is approved by the captain prior to trip confirmation. 

"The process of booking a fishing charter is often frustrating and time consuming for customers. We are passionate about making fishing more accessible and dedicated to ensuring a successful fishing experience for a broad range of customers, from the seasoned fisherman to the first-timer.  The ultimate goal is to transform the booking process in the $1B US Fishing Charter Industry," said LureBoats founder Michael Devlin.  "We've had great reception and interest in the service we are providing and look forward to building our business with our customers and our captain partners."

LureBoats is currently providing services in Massachusetts concentrating in Boston, Cape Cod, and the North and South Shores with plans to expand to other key US markets this fall.
