Initially, Snag-A-Slip exploded in the Chesapeake Bay with a mission to
encourage boaters to explore the waterways and visit new marinas. Since
then, it has steadily grown its network and now serves boaters across
the U.S. and internationally. Taking cues from the hospitality industry,
Snag-A-Slip aims to showcase its marina partners and connect transient
boaters with available slips more easily. Website and mobile app users
can explore marinas by region, city or marina name and then search for
slip availability based on travel dates, length, beam, draw and power
requirements. There are no booking fees associated with the service, and
the company recently rolled out its Dozen Dock ChallengeTM,
where boaters can earn one free night for every 12 stays.

“Snag-A-Slip is experiencing amazing momentum,” said Dan Cowens,
Founder, Snag-A-Slip. “We are humbled by the vote of confidence we’ve
received from our highly supportive investors, and we look forward to a
bright future as we expand our reach, support our partners and inspire
our boaters.”
