Now imagine this. You are sitting on the beach enjoying a cold Corona and then you hear your friend say to another friend of yours, “Did you call the Uber?” and the response is “Yeah, it will be at the dock in 5 minutes.” This is possible now with the new feature of the app in which you can now call UberYachts. WHAT! You can order a boat from the Uber app now? The transportation app is launching this new plan in Dubai this Saturday so stay tuned to see the feedback and how it works out. Usually the best Uber rides include the driver allowing you to roll down the windows with the music bumping, turning the ride into a pregame itself. Now this is all possible AS the actual Uber ride!
Okay so you can’t call the Uber Yacht as spontaneously as I mentioned above; you need to reserve your spot on the Yacht 48 hours before, starting at $82 and you will have access to food, drink and the DJ that is provided on the deluxe Yacht. Chris Fee one of Uber’s international General Managers said, “At Uber we are constantly innovating our services. We want to be more than just a leading global technology app, we want to provide experiences at the push of a button.” Uber is certainly doing this, by adding the Yacht option to their app to users in Dubai.
The first “party” that Uber will offer is already sold out and those that missed out on getting the credit to board the ship will have to wait until Uber announces its next party. I dont see this as too bad as I’m sure somethings will go astray allah Titanic.
Rumors have also circulated about Uber having a similar service but for Jet/Plane vehicles. A similar service has started this in Saudi Arabia called JetSmarter. So lets see if Uber will analyze the effectiveness this company has on the market and then decides to launch their feature. Uber definitely has the market share ability to wait and see how effective this idea is because if they decide to launch something like this many people will turn to them due to their reliability and past experiences with the service. UberChopper has been a big success in Dubai so I’m sure it wont take long for the to test out other flying vehicles.
So is this a good idea and how much will this make Uber? If UberChopper was a success in Dubai I can also see this having a similar impact with the UberYacht. It will for sure have some bugs to start off as anything does when it first comes out. However, Uber is no stranger to controversy and has dealt with plenty of issues since it was founded in 2009.
As for some recommendations that the transportation app could consider is UberCATAMARAN and UberSUBMARINE says Cailey Rizzo from Mashable. This doesnt seem too out of the ordinary considering Uber has pulled off UberPUPPIES and UberCHOPPER. I know what you are thinking…UberPUPPIES?! Yes they held a 1 day event where they delivered puppies to different locations. So from a personal stand point I’m recommending UberBURRITOS but that’s just me.
