amenity Indicates the location of a boat to share.
There is a growing community of boat sharing in Switzerland (and probably also elsewhere), there are two nation wide operators with a total of more than 100 sailboats in about 50 marinas. If you're member with either of the operators, you can use all boats.
This is different from amenity=boat_rental, since there are (currently) no nation-wide rental services, you do not have to be a member for rental, and the boats do not "belong" to you. On the other hand, being member of a boat sharing operator, you "own" your boats.
The idea is to show where the boat you rent is exactly located, and help to reserve also the nearest boat to you.
