Kenny Hilderbrandt,President, CEO
Web Master & Designer of BoatRenting.com, RentaBoat.com and RentaSailboat.com was born and raised on Long Island, NY and is an avid boater with 20 years experience in boat yard management. Kenny studied computer programming and business management during the winter months while managing his families’ marina in the summer. Responsible for creating and finding additional income opportunities, he started the boat rental division of his marina. Becoming inundated with emails and phones calls from people around the world looking for quality boat rental facilities in their area, he realized there was a big market for networking such rental facilities on a larger scale. He realized he faced two obstacles, he needed boat rental facilities with there rental inventory on his site and second he needed a system that would rate both the facilities and the renters by their rental experiences. It also needed to be cost effective for everyone involved.
The facility, the renter and himself. Being in the boat rental business himself, he realized that rental facilities are limited to their rental advertising expenditures and designed a system that didn’t cost the facility any upfront monetary investment. Kenny also developed a Boat Rental Office Management system and software program, which would schedule rental times, print contracts, daily reports, offer online reservations and market or sell boat rental times, all from the web site. Facilities now had a reason to sign on AND potential renters were able to view real-time boat availability. In return for the use of the system, facilities would allow him the opportunity to sell their rental times & would offer him a commission for rental times sold. In order for the renter not to be penalized for booking through the site, he required the facility to discount their rental prices by the amount of the commission. This created a win-win situation. The facility gets a boat rental management system without any capital layout, gets to advertise his boats on all of our websites and a rental history report of past rentals from the renter. The renter is able to find rental boats in his area, see real-time availability, is able to reserve it online and sees a Facility Rating.
