Per a blog post from the company, the UberBoat was launched on the one year anniversary of Uber arriving in Turkey.

Uber partnered with luxury sea transport company Navette to make UberBoat a reality.

The UberBoats cross the Bosphorus strait, a body of water in Instanbul.

The UberBoat works in a similar way to the on-land vehicle, when you’re at the seaside, selected UberBoat and if there’s a boat available nearby it will come pick you up.

Generally the boats available will be similar to a speedboat, with a capacity of six to eight people.
