How is my boat ranked?

Boatbound has implemented a new search algorithm which means you may notice the search results change daily as they are tied to real-time data points. It is important to understand that the new search algorithm is 100% controlled by your actions, e.g., responding promptly, creating a great experience for your renters and approving bookings.

The algorithm now takes into account more than just listing your boat as instant bookable to be at the top of the list. We have implemented 7 important actions, which will be reliant on how your boat is ranked. Reviews and Rating, Response Rate, Inquiries, Approval Rate, Instant Book, Newness and Cancellation Rate will all play a role in the algorithm when calculating the ranking.

Essentially, the more inquiries you receive correlated with successfully approved bookings, the higher ranked your boat will appear in the results.
