Start-up takes the sharing economy out to sea

The sharing economy -- on a boat

One start-up is trying to make a major splash in the sharing economy this summer. But instead of renting out houses and cars—this company is hitting the water.

"There's not a boater on the planet today that gets to use their boat as often as they'd like," Aaron Hall told CNBC. Hall is on a mission to change this with his start-up, Boatbound, a company he says will make boating more accessible and more affordable.

Hall pitched his big idea to Power Pitch panelists Yao Huang, managing partner of The Hatchery, Kanyi Maqubela, venture partner at Collaborative Fund and Peter Isler, an internationally renowned sailor and American Sailing Association board member. Will his pitch sail the high seas with this panel or be dead in the water? Watch the above video to find out.
