About Enaviga

Enaviga Logo

Enaviga began as a conversation among friends, who shared one common passion: the sea. Comprising of a host of experts in disciplines as diverse as online travel, payments, sailing, financial strategy and customer service, we have come together to create Enaviga.

As sea lovers, whe wondered why there wasn't an online platform that managed all aspects of nautical experiences. So, we pooled our skills over many a dinner table to come up with the one-stop boat rental experience.

Pulling together a sea trip doesn't have to be difficult, nor does it have to cost a small fortune to rent a bareboat or hire a captained yacht.

The world would be a more peaceful place if everyone spent at least one week a year sailing the deep blue, don't you think?

Enaviga is here to make nautical adventures easy and affordable for everybody.

We make boat rentals easy by building a strong bond between boat owners and travellers. Also, we enable boat owners to monetize their vessels more efficiently and expand their reach globally.
