Social sailing

GoBoats are designed with the social experience in mind. Each boat fits 8 people with a picnic table in the middle to create the best social experience.

The Danish "hygge" is a big part of the experience - regardless of which country or location you are sailing in.

The social aspect is also part of GoBoat's culture as we insist on social events, e.g. the yearly season's end party, and having fun while working.

GoBoat's work with sustainability

As part of GoBoat's DNA, sustainability is important for us. Sailing in clean water is just more fun. Therefore, we work on creating the smallest carbon footprint as possible and protecting the sensitive harbor environment.

We have chosen electric motors rather than gasoline ones. We lend fishing nets to children so they can clean up the water. We often do "clean ups" with various NGOs. In 2023 and 2024 we were part of Affaldsindsamlingen.

GoBoat culture

To ensure that our guests have extraordinary experiences sailing with GoBoat, our crew of friendly and helpful employees are carefully chosen based on their competences and knowledge and most importantly their great personalities. We work hard on creating the best culture where everyone feels included.

As a seasonal experience company with locations all over the world, we often do exchanges: Colleagues from Australia working in Denmark, Germany, UK and the other way round.
