Boatsetter acquires another chartering company

Boatsetter, an Aventura-based startup announced that is has acquired a competing peer-to-peer boat-chartering company, Boatbound, from San Francisco, according to the South Florida Business Journal.

Similar to Boatbound, Boatsetter operates an online marketplace where boat owners can list their vessels and users can charter them. Boatsetter has raised more than $15 million in funding, reports the South Florida Business Journal.
