This fourth of July, Chicagoans celebrate independence day by finding that patriotic swimming suit and getting on a boat from Boatsetter, an industry leading boat sharing marketplace that connects renters to boats.

July 4th boat rentals in Chicago get this party started!

While thousands will be fighting holiday traffic to find a place for their blankets, chairs and park their cars, others will be boarding a boat with their best friends, beer and some barbeque as they get ready to celebrate America’s 240th birthday.

“The streets of Chicago are sure to be packed all holiday weekend, and the best seat in the city will be on a boat in Lake Michigan,” said Pablo Vidal, chief marketing officer of Boatsetter.com. “Boatsetter offers a wide variety of boats for those who want the best view but don’t have a boat of their own.”

Whether holiday partiers want to be on the boat for a few hours or the entire weekend, there are boats available for a half day or a few nights for taking in the Chicago skyline. Renters can enjoy the holiday weekend in style on Sweet Emotion, a 40-foot Carver 36 Supersport which has two staterooms, convertible couch and a full restroom with shower.

Boatsetter isn’t just for those who want to rent a boat. Boat owners who may be out of town during the holidays or away on vacation this summer can list their boat for free including insurance coverage on all rentals.

Additionally, Boatsetter sets itself apart by offering one of the biggest fleets of Coast Guard licensed captains for a turn-key experience. Boat owners set their price and schedule with final approvals for all rentals. Boat owners exclusively with Boatsetter will enjoy a complimentary boat-sharing permit.

Before getting underway, Boatsetter recommends for all boaters to file a float plan with a family member or friend, have all of the proper and required safety equipment, wear their life jackets and never operate a vessel under the influence of alcohol or another substance.
