A boat rental is a place, house or area where you can rent a boat. There are a lot of boat_rentals worldwide, mostly in holiday destinations. There exist, for example, rentals for pedalboats, jetskis, rowing boats, motorboats...

How to map

  • Add a node node tagged amenity=boat_rental in the center of the rental-destination (pier, house).
  • If there is just an area (p.e. an area marked with buoys for pedalboat on a lake), which is not allowed to leave, it should tagged as an area area as amenity=boat_rental.
