All berths in one place — on your phone and tablet
Sun and holidays. Guest marinas occupied to the brim while you and everyone out at sea have left lots of empty private berths behind. The Mooringo mobile app enables you to borrow or rent berths from private individuals and harbors who want their empty berths to be used.
You can pick and choose among private harbors, marinas, bridges and private buoys. Places that have not been available before can now become your new favourites. Book a berth conveniently with a few clicks, instead of an endless number of phone calls.
Discover new places
Mooringo not only solves the problem of full marinas, it also inspires you to discover new places. Private berths in cosy bays, small yacht clubs with fine barbecue areas, buoys that no one seems to use. Maybe you want to visit friends or leave the boat for a few days in an area you do not know so well? Mooringo lets you discover hidden jewels as well as new convenient berths in the archipelago.
Book up to a month in advance — arrive whenever it suits you
With Mooringo’s app you can really chill out at sea. You don’t need to worry about the harbor being full. Or that you have to enter the harbor at a special time to get a good spot. And since bookings and payments are handled through the app, you don’t need to adapt your plans to the harbor office’s opening hours. You can book a guest berth up to a month in advance and for up to seven consecutive days. If you need to change your plans, you may cancel up to one day before your planned arrival and you will receive a full refund.
Berths suited for you and your boat
When you register in the mobile app, you specify what kind of boat you have: length, width, depth and weight. With that information, you’ll be presented only with berths that can accomodate your vessel.
Can you contribute with your own berth?
The idea of a sharing economy is to share and use untapped resources. In our case, we want to share our empty berths with others. Those who have a berth can either get paid for sharing their berth, but they can also let others use it for free. Maybe they have a cafe or a restaurant they want to attract people to. Maybe they just want to keep their harbor lively when the members are all out at sea. Our common goal is to create more guest berths for boat owners.
Why book and rent berths through Mooringo?
- You get the opportunity to discover and make use of new berths and buoys.
- You will get a berth at a marina or at a pier or buoy reserved for you.
- You do not need to rush to be sure of a berth. You tie up at your convenience without worrying about whether there will be any guest berths available.
- You do not need to enter harbors without knowing whether or not there is a guest berth there for you.
- You know that the berth fits your boat.
Do I need to have my own berth out for rent to be able to rent others berths through Mooringo?
No. You can rent other boat owner's berths without having your own out for rent.
Does the app cost anything?
No, you can download the app for free. You do not need to pay any membership fees. We charge only a fixed price per booked night when you book and pay through the app. If you don't book anything, you don't pay anything.
How do I book a berth?
You book and pay through the Mooringo app. When you find a berth that is marked as green on the map, you make the reservation with a few clicks. Once you have paid for it, the berth will appear red, occupied, and non-bookable.
Can I book more than one berths for the same date?
No, you can only book one berth per night. The system will give you an alert if you try to book more.
How far in advance can I book a berth?
How many days in a row can I book the same berth?
You can book a maximum of seven consecutive days. Thereafter you'll need to make a new booking. (This is to avoid someone reserving a berth for the whole summer).
What do the colours of the pegs on the map mean?
Green - Vacant berth that can be booked. Yellow - Vacant berth that cannot be booked (e.g. drop in berths) Red - Occupied berth.
How does the app know what type of berth I'm looking for?
When you register, you enter information in the app about your boat: length, width, depth, etc. The Mooringo app will then only offer you berths that are large enough for your boat.
What if another boat has taken the berth I have booked?
Since you have a confirmation in your mobile with contact details of the owner of the berth you and the boater currently using the berth can jointly contact the owner and thereby resolve the misunderstanding that way.
How much do I pay and how?
- Mooringo has no fixed price list. The person who rents out the berth sets the price.
- You pay the price set by the person who rents out the berth, plus a fixed booking fee.
- When you have found a berth that you want, you pay via the Mooringo app with your credit card. The money is deducted from your card immediately, to ensure that you actually show up at your booked berth.
- The person who rents out the berth gets the money a week after the rental has occurred. This is to protect you from paying for non-existent berths, or berths that do not meet their specification.
What happens if I want to cancel a reservation that I have paid for?
You can cancel a booked berth up to 24 hours before the booked date and get a full refund. No boater can control the weather or other unforeseen events.
Are there free of charge berths?
Yes there are as the person who rents out the berth sets the price.
How do I complain about a berth that does not exist or meet the specifications?
Step 1 is to contact the person who let out the berth, whose contact information you received when making the payment. Hopefully it's a misunderstanding that is easily resolved. Step 2 is to contact Mooringo. Since the person who rents out the berth does not get paid until a week after you have visited the site, we can reimburse you the money that you have paid. Please describe in detail what the problem was and what was said when discussing with the person letting you the berth so we have as much information as possible when contacting the owner of the berth. Please make sure to contact Mooringo as soon as possible after the problem has occurred.
What happens if I do any damage to the berth I rent?
You or your insurance company is responsible for handling any damage caused by you.
What happens if my boat gets damaged because of incorrect information about the berth?
The person who rents out a berth signs a user agreement ensuring that the information provided is correct. If your boat is damaged due to incorrect information from the person who rented out the berth, then the latter should compensate you for it. However, you must prove that the damage occurred in connection with the rental, and because of the incorrect information about the berth.
