Zizoo is the leading boat holiday platform, offering over 44,000 boats across 500 destinations worldwide. We cater both to licensed sailors looking to book a boat only, and to those with no sailing experience, interested in hiring a boat together with a captain and optional crew. Zizoo makes it easy for travellers to find the right boat by simplifying the selection and booking process.
Named after one of Jacques Cousteau's nicknames, Zizoo’s mission is to make boat holidays accessible and easy to book for everyone. We’re a team of passionate sailors with strong industry ties, which allows us to give our customers expert advice, and a price-match guarantee on verified and insured boats.
Founded by a group of friends with a shared enthusiasm for sea travel and technology, Zizoo was established in Vienna, Austria. It currently operates from its headquarters in Berlin, Germany with an international footprint and team covering >30 countries and >500 destinations.
Zizoo’s shareholders include some of Europe’s and US most reputable investors such as Axel Springer Digital Ventures, Mairdumont Ventures, aws Founder Fund and Russmedia. We are therefore looking to expand our boat fleet and to offer fantastic boat holidays to even more customers worldwide. Currently, Zizoo serves customers in 500 destinations.
Being a part of Zizoo means being in love with the sea. While our team members’ backgrounds vary across geographies and skills, the one thing we all have in common is our dedication to the customer and our passion for sailing. Meet some of the team below:
Our founder and CEO Anna started sailing at a young age. She later translated her interest in boats into a business, which aims to revolutionise the nautical tourism industry and to offer boat holidays to everyone.
Our Charter Team superstar Benita is also a skipper in her spare time. Having extensively sailed in the Mediterranean and the Adriatic in particular, Benita’s favourite thing to do in the world is to sail off the Croatian coast into the Adriatic.
