FunCats Bring New Customers to Watersport Rental Businesses

If you don’t know about FunCats you are missing out on a really fantastic product. There is nothing like it on the market. Successful watersport business owners have snapped up FunCats and attracted an entirely new customer base. From the chaise-lounge seatback and comfortable armrests with cup holders to the easy to use controls and pontoon storage, FunCat offers a unique experience to customers.

What is it about FunCat that brings NEW customers to watersport rental businesses?

The FunCat is leisurely.

You can cruise around the water for hours without so much as lifting a finger — well… that is all you have to do — lift one finger and press the controls. The chaise-lounge seat reclines, allowing you to lay back, kick up your feet and enjoy the breeze across the sea. It is like a mobile hammock hovering over sparkling waters. Most watercraft rentals require physical exertion and/or a fair amount of know how. FunCats bring in the customers who want to relax and have no experience with maneuvering watercraft.

FunCats are romantic.

Romance seekers find FunCat excellent for cuddling. The side-by-side seating provides for a perfect date. Customers can ride out to a secluded spot in the middle of the lake and watch the sunset while hand in hand.

FunCats are unique.

Millenials (those born between 1980 and 2000) represent 1/3 of the population. Market research shows that Millenials spend more money on experiences than on products. It also shows that they spend a lot of time looking for something new to try. From finding a dive restaurant that has the best breakfast to snorkeling in cenotes, Millenials want to be the first to discover fresh adventures. FunCats are truly unique, and they offer that new experience which people crave.

FunCats are fun for families.

A FunCat can hold up to 500 lbs. Families can ride around all day, swimming, fishing, or just cruising, and the controls are so easy that even the kids can drive! Customers with kids love renting FunCats.

Quite a few businesses around the world have utilized these FunCat qualities to enhance their customer base and increase revenue.

In San Diego, Resort Watersports introduces people to FunCats everyday. Andy Berry (Owner/Operator) says,
“FunCats have proven to be a very popular rental. They’re easy to use, and our guests can relax on the water without the hassle of paddles, oars, sails or gasoline-powered motors. Our customers come back time and again to rent FunCats!”
He currently has 12 FunCats and they are always on the water.

Action Sport Rentals — which offers FunCats at 3 San Diego locations — has rented to Orange County native Lydia McLaughlin (Real Housewives of Orange County alum) who posted a FunCat selfie photo to instagram and commented: “I just discovered my new favorite boat!”

On Disney Cruiselines’ private island Castaway Cay in the Bahamas guests can rent FunCats off of the beach. Many fans of the mouse have ridden the Cat!

Another popular rental location in the Bahamas is at the Atlantis. Customers from all over the world cruise around the tropical waters in view of the landmark Atlantis resort.
