This is your most affordable option to get >10 guests out on the water in Chicago this summer!
This Mainship Mediterranean yacht has a huge layout and should be your choice for a day on the water, whether with friends, family or work colleagues. We specialize in bachelorette, birthdays, and corporate events. The boat is equipped with coolers and floating pads to hang out on at the playpen. Prices shown do not include a captain, this is a BAREBOAT CHARTER so you will need to provide a US Coast Guard licensed captain or we can make recommendations of captains that are familiar with our boats.
RATE IS FOR BARE BOAT ONLY- CAPTAIN IS NOT INCLUDED! Budget $60-$70/hour plus gratuity for a captain. You will hire/pay them directly.
The Mainship Mediterranean 40 ft express cruiser is unique in its size and seating area in the cockpit. Most cruisers have seating that breaks the boat up into different areas, but on the Mainship the cockpit is one HUGE social zone with lots of lounge areas. Check out the custom daybed lounger next to the helm! We also have lounge pads installed at the front of the boat.
This massive vessel is equipped with a full bathroom, coolers, and a great sound system you can plug into either via Bluetooth, AUX or USB. This Mainship is perfect for your group of up to 12 guests to take a trip to the playpen.
Half day is 3 or 4 hours, full day is 6 hours. Inquire about the hours of our availability.
All prices listed are for the boat rental only, you must hire a US Coast Guard licensed captain to pilot the boat. We can recommend several captains that are familiar with the operation of this particular vessel, and you will pay the captain directly. You are not limited to only the captains on the list, you are able to hire a different USCG licensed captain.
You should budget around between $60 and $70 per hour for captain service, plus gratuity.
Fuel is paid by the renter based on consumption, which can vary widely depending on your chosen itinerary. For a typical trip up the chicago coastline to the downtown "playpen" anchorage and back your fuel reimbursement will not be more than $125.00 total.
Chris was VERY helpful through the entire booking process. Our boat was BETTER than expected and our Captain, Cortney Scott, was absolutely INCREDIBLE. I have nothing but incredible things to say about our entire experience. We had 10 ladies on this boat and there was MORE than enough room for all of us to relax in the sun, swim and hang out.
Chris made the rental process quick and simple. He was very efficient in his responses and gave all the information upfront. Our group had an amazing time on his boat. Will definitely be renting from Chris again! Thanks for everything!
Chris was great and the boat was perfect for our group of 12. He communicated everything upfront and thoroughly. And, he connected us with a great captain! The boat has a nice large area in the back for everyone to hangout in. He provided a cooler, ice, there's a nice bathroom on the boat and a cabin area beneath. We didn't have great weather, but still had an amazing day on the boat!! Thanks, Chris!
Had an amazing time! Chris was very helpful with details on how to prepare for our day on the water. The boat was much larger than we expected, perfect for our group of 12. Our captain Patrick was great and helped us set up when we arrived. Meeting place was very easy to find as well! Will definitely be booking again!
