Marine technology company, savvy navvy, has teamed up with Zizoo, the world’s largest boat rental platform, helping responsible marine tourism by giving boat holiday makers across the globe access to its 'Google Maps for boats' app.

Zizoo, which offers over 44,000 boats across 500 destinations worldwide for both experienced and inexperienced boaters, will integrate savvy navvy’s technology as part of its user platforms.

savvy navvy, often referred to as ‘Google maps for boats’, continues to innovate the boating industry and this partnership is the latest in many, enabling more people to confidently and safely enjoy their time on the water.

“Our vision from the outset has been for savvy navvy to be in every boater’s pocket, supporting both new and experienced boaters. With boating holidays on the rise across the world, we are delighted to work with Zizoo to support responsible and sustainable marine tourism. savvy navvy continues to grow across the globe and partnering with a leading boat charter company, means we can give simplified navigation access to the thousands of people chartering boats and enhancing their sailing experience adding value to us and them,” says Jelte Liebrand, Founder and CEO of savvy navvy.

Zizoo caters both to licensed sailors looking to book a boat only, and to those with no sailing experience, interested in hiring a boat together with a captain and optional crew. Their customers will benefit from access to savvy navvy’s simplified navigation app and savvy charts™ will be part of Zizoo’s itineraries going forward. 

“At Zizoo we make it easy for travellers to find the right boat, right location and choose itineraries suited to their level of experience. We are always looking to enhance our customers’ experience and ways they can maximise their charter holiday. Our partnership with savvy navvy will definitely do that – as we want to make boating a simpler, more pleasurable and safe experience for anyone navigating the waters,” says Anna Banicevic (CEO).

The savvy navvy app takes into account wind, weather, tides, and user preferences to produce the fastest and safest routes available. Since being set up by Jelte Liebrand and co-Founder Kevin O’Neill only five years ago, savvy navvy has grown rapidly and today has nearly half a million users in more than 100 countries across the globe.
