About

                        


Something fun for your summer. A boat sharing app.

This app allows people who have a boat to make it available to anyone wishing to enjoy a boat ride. In return, the captains ask for some rewards, such as snacks, drinks or some contribution to the boat fuel. They choose. 

We aspire to create a community of truly Boating enthusiasts whether you have a boat or not. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people, and see the city in a different way.

It's called the Blue Planet for some reason. There's 71% water on Earth, therefore we think this app can be used everywhere. No, seriously.


The fund will be used to contribute to the development of the IOS app already on the App Store and the upcoming Android version. Mainly will support us to keep our mission of making boating more accessible to everybody. 


Summer 2013, I was boatless. I wasn't the only one. There are lot of people who would like to be on a boat in those warm summer days.

Surprisingly, I realized that there are good people out there willing to share their boat. They just need to be empowered ( and rewarded ).

As a Kid I used to sail, and I remember those calm moments. That good feeling.

I want to make this pleasant experience a bit more accessible. I truly believe boating could be enjoyed by everybody.


I'm Tiago Varandas, former Interactive Art Director at W+K Amsterdam, and most recently freelance Creative/Art Director in B-Reel NY and Google Paris.

I've been proudly working with a few agencies, collaborating with amazing talents.

Along the way that collaborative work has been honored in several festivals such as Cannes Cyber Lions, Fwa, Fwa Mobile, Awwwards, Webby’s, One Show Interactive and NY festival. Bla, Bla, Bla.

I frequently attend festivals such as OFFF, FITC and SXSW to feed my curious nature.

I can also be found dreaming about new things in www.littlenicethings.com, my new studio that aims to create interactive, beautiful and meaningful things, to find innovative ways of communication, just like this app.

   
     
     

Risks and challenges

There's the risk that nobody in your city would share their boat. But we believe that there are good people out there willing to share their boat. They just need to be empowered ( and rewarded ).

So far we already saw boats being shared in Amsterdam, Denmark, Toronto and U.S.
