About us

Who are we?

We are Barqo, a company based in the Netherlands and founded in 2014.

Unfortunately not everyone owns a boat, while on the other hand many people who own a boat cannot use it as often as they would like. This means that many boats remain docked unnecessarily for a large part of the year.

This is where Barqo comes into play. We are the Dutch rental platform where boat owners or fleet owners and tenants come together. Our platform ensures a safe and reliable way of renting and renting out your boat or fleet.

Our mission

To bring watersports enthusiasts and boat owners from all over the world in contact with each other, making watersports more accessible to everyone.
