Are Boats The New Frontier For Coworking Spaces?
A week-long trip at sea offers a new way for professionals to combine work and play
With space needed to accommodate the numerous startups popping up left and right, Coboat seeks to provide a different type of co-working space out in the waves. Coboat wants to bring professionals on its sailboats to not only work, but to network and enjoy the numerous benefits of being out in the sea.
The founders, Gerald Schombs and Karston Knorr, believe that this new experience of weekly co-working trips at sea will initiate friendships and create a collaboration of great minds and ideas. Also, participants have the option of partaking in multiple daily activities, including scuba diving and yoga. The boat also allows anyone with a laptop to get full Wi-Fi access. This way, work still gets done in this relaxing environment.
