Boat Rental & Houseboat Rentals
Why You Should Rent a Boat
Thousands of people rent boats and houseboats each year for family vacations and outings, sport related adventures such as fishing, skiing, and other recreational water activities. Others may rent a boat as a way of comparing models and types of boats to get a better idea of which boat they would like to purchase.
Just about any kind of boat imaginable is available for rent. Inflatable boats and canoes are rented for leisurely river getaways while kayaks are for the more adventurous soul who likes to go whitewater rafting.
Aluminum and fiberglass boats are two of the most popular boats rented. Fishing, sailing and various other water sports such as, skiing, wakeboarding, knee boarding, and tubing are popular for aluminum and fiberglass boat rentals. You can even rent a houseboat, yacht, or cruiser to take the entire family on a vacation for a week or more.
Before you decide to rent a boat, there are a few things you should ask yourself in preparation including:
• Have you ever been on a boat? If not, you will need someone to go out with you the first time to help you become acclimated with the boat and how it works.
• Why are you renting a boat and what will you be doing? Prepare ahead and know what your plans are. This will help you rent the correct boat and make the most of your time on the water.
If you are completely unfamiliar with boats or houseboats and how to operate them, your best bet would be a crewed boat charter. You simply set back and relax or have fun in the water skiing and wakeboarding while an onboard crew takes care of running the boat and in some cases preparing meals, drinks, or snacks for you and your guests. Obviously, crewed boat charters are more expensive than other rented boats.
