Online Booking System to Increase Transient Moorage Business

GARDEN BAY, BC, May 30, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ — Pender Harbour Resort and Marina has chosen Swift Harbour for it’s online Marina Booking platform. The new system allows visitors to make moorage reservations at the resort using any device or via their app for iPhones and iPads.

“We are very excited to be using Swift Harbour as our online booking platform for transient boats,” states Jeff Peifer, owner of Pender Harbour Marina and Resort. “Historically a customer would call by phone or VHF to make a booking which was a long manual process for our staff and the customer”

The new online system allows a boater immediate and convenient access to self-serve a moorage booking. All boat details including length, beam, draft, power, etc., can now be entered via their computer or iPhone app.

“Pender Harbour Resort and Marina is a crown jewel of cruising on the West Coast,” says Jamie Copeland, CEO of Swift Harbour. “We are delighted to partner with Jeff and his team to make it easier than ever to book at his facility. I know the time spent at Pender Harbour Resort and Marina will be the highlight of many of our own summers!”

The Swift Harbour app is free to download and use. It allows boaters an easy way to discover marinas, explore their services and book a visitor slip in seconds. It brings the modern conveniences of Airbnb and Uber to boating.

“Swift Harbor is simply an excellent platform,” says Jeff Peifer. “More boaters will find us which will lead to additional business – I wouldn’t be surprised if we double the amount of transient moorage revenue this summer.”

The Swift Harbour system gives Pender Harbour Resort and Marina the opportunity to simplify it’s booking administration while creating more value for a customer looking to spend a night or two at the resort.
