We are the first self-serviced electrical boat rental in the Nordics

Who doesn’t like to hang out with family, friends or colleagues on a wonderful day in the sun? Maybe with a picnic and something nice to drink? Preferably close to the water, as an adventure or as something relaxed? And at the same time doing it in an environmentally friendly electric boat, with virtually no noise from the engine? Without the fuzz, no sails to take care of or expensive smelly boat fuel?

That’s exactly what we thought too and that is why we started BookaBoat in 2015. Our idea is to help people to hang out and enjoy life for a moment. We do that by providing splendid and self-serviced electrical boats in the canals of Malmö. Easy, flexible, spontaneous. It is our wish that this service is available for as many as possible, and give everyone the opportunity to create their own new lovely memories. We think we are getting there. Thousands of people have now taken trips in our boats, among them we have had several marriage proposals (with a 100% success rate!) and bridal couples that have used our classy boats to make their special day a little extra unforgettable.

Green and clean

Our boats are 100% electric and the electricity we use is 100% produced from wind power. By using our boats you contribute to keep emission in the city center down and also help minimize noise pollution.

For a vibrant Malmö

We love Malmö and like to contribute to making the town vibrant and alive. With BookaBoat we want to combine Malmö´s maritime history with the city´s current character as a hotspot for digital service development.
