    The Canaries, are clamping down on people, parking 3 - 4 boats, in their marinas & using them as cheap rents !
    I can only assume its the same elsewhere ?
    Here, if they are found out, they will be fined thousands of Euros, and or have the offending boats confiscated , as they are occupying all the visitors moorings
    Also, you need to look into the laws in your area, and your insurance, because if you do a fast AIRBNB rental, and your clients, start a fire, or smoke dope etc, you will get done !
    If anyone complains to the police, that some idiots are smokin dope, on the boat next door, then the cops can seize the boat.
    You Decide !
    Not the boat. I am converting the garage into a two bed flat, in the longer time frame, we will rent main house out and use the flat when not sailing. planning permission granted, allows for short term let only. thinking therefore of air bnb.
    obs I will get insurance just wondering if anyone has any experience of them. thanks

    Risky. Especially if you're not around. If you get family and friends on board should be ok otherwise reward is just not worth it.

    My son and his wife have a flat created in an unused extension to the house. They also have a cabin in the large garden with its own garden. Both have parking and own entrances. They are let for the majority of time in the summer and more than 50% in the winter. This is a Pembrokeshire in a coast town near Tenby. They allow dogs with rules. It has been a great success with no downsides. They also let them through Home and Away (or Owners Direct can't remember which). They pay someone to do the change overs but do the laundry themselves.
    Not all who wander are lost

    OK, That, at least, sounds workable, as you will be right there, to deal with : Noise , Damage & Other misuse.
    Good Luck !

    That can work but they will want a fee. I would also check the marina t&c .
