This yacht is great for family gatherings, corporate outings, birthday celebrations, or just a day on the river with friends. Note that 12 passengers (not including the captain) is the legal limit for a charter.
The half-day charter consists of a 3-hour window for cruising and lounging on the boat. The full-day rate includes a 5-hour charter window. Please state your requested start time with your initial request.
Typical routes include a cruise past the monuments (Lincoln Memorial, Washington monument, Jefferson monument), the Kennedy center, the Watergate complex, and then head north past the Key bridge to see parts of the river that few non-boaters encounter.
In the warmer months, crews may enjoy lounging on the bow of the boat while anchored, swim a little in the cleaner parts of the Potomac, and/or hanging out on the large tube.
Enjoy a day of carefree fun on the water in this 2006 Searay 38 Sundancer cruiser. The quoted price of $1,200 includes captain, fuel for light cruising, and 5 hours of fun on the Potomac River. A 3-hour tour is priced at $800. Note that the quoted price for holiday weekends (including Memorial Day Weekend, July 4, and Labor Day Weekend) is higher to match demand.
This yacht is great for family gatherings, corporate outings, birthday celebrations, or just a day on the river with friends.
1 - Standard location for pick up and drop off is at the Georgetown waterfront.
2 - With the exception of red wine, you may bring any (legal) drink and food that you desire for the outings. Red wine stains are too tough to clean.
3 - Given the time that it takes to cruise up/down the river, I limit cruising area to points north of the DCA (National) airport. The preferred point of embarkation / disembarkation is Georgetown.
4 - The boat is equipped with an aux input cable to connect your music (iPhone, iPod, etc.) and a good speaker system throughout.
5 - I will provide ice and cups for your outing. I also have a refrigerator and coolers on board for your use.
6 - Boat Rules: No smoking; no red wine allowed; no high heels while on the boat; no over-drinking (safety while on the river is my primary focus).
My friends and I had a wonderful time celebrating my 30th birthday. Mark was a great captain and treated my guest very well. My rental was for three hours . We boarded late, but returned to the dock on time. I will say that I did read a review that stated the boat was a little cluttered on the inside in which is was. There would be much more space if the inside was cleaned up and organized a little. Capacity of the boat was 12 passengers, but I only had 10 passengers and felt like anymore would've been too many. Once we docked, my guest did make a few comments that they felt rushed off the boat, but other than that we had a good time and would select Mark and his Sea Ray Boat 360 Sundancer again.
We had an amazing time!!!!! Chartered the boat for my prebirthday celebration and everyone had a great time. Marty and Mark were prompt and helped us load up. It was hot hot hot outside and the air conditioned cabin was a great getaway from the sun. The boat was clean and they had towels on the seats to help with the heat. Will be chartering again for another event. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!
Certainly recommend Mark and his boat to all looking for a nice ride out. Our experience was amazing from his quick responses to all my questions to his punctuality at the dock. The time definitely flew by quicker than we thought but it turned out great because we didn’t get rained on while on board. Will def recommend Mark and will look forward to doing in the future.
We rented Mark’s boat for my sister’s birthday. It was a total of 8 of us and we had plenty of space. The boat is beautiful and we had an awesome time. Captain was great too! Mark was quick to respond to all my inquires. The only thing is that the inside of the boat wasnt really really clean. The bathroom could have been a little more clean- except from that everything was perfect and we would definetly rent the boat again.
I had an incredible experience booking with Mark! We booked a 3-hr boat ride to celebrate my bachelorette party, our group had 6 people. Our captain Marty made it a fun pleasurable experience! The boat is beautiful and very clean. Despite the rain we still enjoyed the ride and we’re able to get great group pictures to cherish the memories.
"A Teens Sweet 16 Dream"
This was the perfect idea to end my daughter's sweet 16 birthday weekend. Would have given a 5 star review if it wasn't for the late notice about the generator going bad and we had no power. That sucked since it was a brunch and we wasted a box of pancake mix and had no way to heat up the food. However, the day was not a disaster we made it work and the girls enjoyed the boat, the ride, the scenery, and captain Marty was awesome..... Best decision yet! Nice boat, great ride, and captain Marty is a must.... .....
We rented Mark's boat for a birthday celebration, originally set for a half day (3 hours). We enjoyed our time so much we kept extending the rental and ended up on the water for a full 5 hours. Mark was quick and courteous in our communication before and during the rental. He also arranged a great captain for us. All in all a great time! I would definitely rent the boat again in the future.
My friends and I really enjoyed our day out on Mark’s boat. Leading up to our rental, Mark was easy to get in touch with and very quick with his responses. They boat itself was awesome. I would defiantly rent from Mark again. Thanks for a great time!
I surprised my best friend for her bachlorette with a 5 hour cruise on Mark's boat and she loved It! He was so laid back and lovely and our group is still talking about what a perfect day it was. Highly recommend him for any small group events.
Our boat cruise was exactly what we were looking for. Mark and Captain Jim were extremely hospitable and communicative. They made sure we had the materials we needed (plates, cups, etc.) and always promptly responded to emails/texts. We took a company outing on this beautiful boat at sunset, and we had a great time! The boat was very spacious and comfortable and well-equipped. Captain Jim was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely rent again!
Mark was a fabulous host. His boat was the perfect venue for my husband's birthday party. The boat had all of the necessary amenities and plenty of room for us and our 10 friends. Mark did everything to ensure that we enjoyed our time including taking pictures for the group. We will definitely rent his boat again!
Had a great day celebrating a birthday on the water with Mark in his beautiful boat! Mark was very responsive and helpful as we planned our trip, and did everything he could to make sure we enjoyed our time on the water to the fullest extent. Great charter on a great boat - thanks Mark!
I spent an awesome afternoon on Mark's beautiful boat with 8 friends (9 of us total). From booking to close out, Mark was an attentive and friendly host and captain. He had the cabin stocked with ice and cups. Everything was clean and totally comfortable. The boat had ample space, which allowed people to spread out on different parts of the deck. I really can't think of a single thing I would improve, other than the boat is not mine. Mark, give me your boat! Thanks for a great day!
