There are three paths to Bowter Destination. If you want a hands-on experience and manage much of it yourself, we recommend buying or leasing your own boats.
If you have a perfect location for a destination but want us to take care of the operation, you can invest in a destination and let us handle the rest.
When you purchase a Bowt, the price starts at 279,000 SEK, and you have the option to customize it with various add-ons such as extra batteries, teak, boat wrapping, height-adjustable tables, and more.
The payment follows a three-step process: 10% of the cost is paid upon ordering, 40% at the start of production, and the remaining 50% is paid upon delivery of the boat.
Our leasing model involves entering into a 36-month agreement and paying a monthly fee.
During the leasing period, Bowter takes 50% of the rental income if you choose to rent out the boat.
After the contract's duration, the residual value of the boat is set at 50%. This offers a convenient and flexible solution for owning and using a Bowt boat.
Bowter Destinations is an innovative concept that allows investors to own and benefit from a fleet of Bowter boats without being responsible for the operation.
Investing in Bowter Destinations provides a smooth and convenient opportunity to participate in the boat rental industry without the usual operational efforts.

Bowter takes a percentage of the rental earnings with each monthly payout. This percentage is based on a revenue ladder that is valid throughout the entire season.
For the first 40,000 SEK in revenue, Bowter takes 30%.
Then, from 40,000 SEK to 100,000 SEK, 20% of the revenue.
From 100,000 SEK to 200,000 SEK, 10%, and if revenue exceeds 200,000 SEK, 5%.
This tier is reset at the beginning of each year to fairly manage the earnings.
To ensure a successful start when building your destination from the ground up, you may need to make some initial purchases.
Here are some examples:
Marketing materials, signs, brochures
Safety equipment, such as life jackets
Mooring packs, anchors with accessories
You can collaborate with local businesses and, in doing so, increase your revenue and offer your customers add-on packages. For example, food and beverages.
Perfect for events
Allow businesses to tailor a kickoff event with Bowter at the center, let the newlyweds arrive at their wedding reception in style, or collaborate with the city's finest restaurant for a cozy lakeside picnic.

“To be a destination owner is a truly unique opportunity to combine my passions for future technology with a social connection to nature. Witnessing the joy in every new BOWTER customer is incredibly rewarding.
As a destination owner, you're not choosing a job; you're choosing a wonderful lifestyle!”
- Björn Karlsson, Bowter Växjö
Bowter's contract requires the customer to accept terms and conditions when renting a boat. By accepting this contract, the customer commits to following the rules and regulations established by Bowter for a safe and responsible boating experience. This agreement is designed to protect both the customer, the destination and Bowter.
Bowter Flow is our subscription service that offers customers unlimited access to electric boats for a fixed monthly fee. It is a flexible subscription where the destination itself determines the monthly cost.
Cancellation and Refund Policy
We encourage customers to make early cancellations, preferably at least 48 hours before the scheduled rental time, which allows for a full refund or the option to reschedule the booking for a later time at no extra cost.
For early cancellations, the refund process is automatic and typically takes 5-7 business days.
For late cancellations, made less than 48 hours before the rental time, we cannot offer any refunds. However, customers can still reschedule their bookings to utilize the rental time at another time and minimize the loss.
