Waterway Guide is America’s most trusted and respected resource for cruising boaters with data of its more than 4,000 marinas and thousands of anchorages now integrated into the savvy navvy app as part of the new partnership for all the users to access.
“One of the most significant factors in deciding where to go with your boat is reviews from other boaters. That’s why we’re super excited about our latest integration in our savvy navvy app in the US giving marina and anchorage information from Waterway Guide. With a wealth of information on all marinas and anchorages and honest reviews, it’s an amazing addition to our offering for our growing American customer base,” says Jelte Liebrand, CEO and Founder of savvy navvy.
Liebrand, former Google software engineer and avid sailor based in the UK, developed and launched savvy navvy, bringing an all-in-one navigation solution to the market. This season alone savvy navvy users have plotted over 40 million nautical miles of routes, as the app continues to enable more boaters to confidently and safely enjoy their time out on the water. Earlier this year, the navigation app launched a hugely popular freemium plan in the US and recently also launched functionalities for paddleboarders, kayakers and jet-skiers.
The partnership is part of the Waterway Guide’s hybrid resources for boaters, giving both print and enhanced digital solutions for the growing boat market in the US, supporting with accurate information to plan journeys for more than 80 years.
President of Waterway Guide Media, Graham Jones, says, “At Waterway Guide we strive to put our trusted and verified content in boaters’ hands to improve their experience, from planning and research to actively navigating. We have a wealth of knowledge and content that is continuously updated by a network of on-the-water contributors, marina partners, NOAA data, our own team, and crowd-sourced information. We are impressed by the functionality savvy navvy provides boaters. This partnership shows their commitment to providing a great product and adds tremendous value to their platform.”
Data from the Waterway Guide is live in the savvy navvy app for users to see now when pressing the blue POI icons across the US and Canada, giving users more information than ever on services, facilities, alongside marina reviews.
