Relax and Enjoy the Sun on an Immaculate Classic Four Winns SunDowner
Take a leisurely cruise along beautiful Lake Michigan onboard the SunDowner. Drop-anchor at the Navy Pier’s Northside Playpen and enjoy the Chicago skyline with family and friends as you celebrate special life events, or simply treat yourself to a day on the water "just because" you deserve it.
This vessel is equipped with a full bathroom, kitchen size galley, refrigerator, coolers, fire extinguishers, first aid kit and other safety equipment, as well has USCG Type-1 life vests for all passengers. Baby Girl has a great JL Audio Sound System you can plug into either via Bluetooth, AUX or USB. She is perfect for an intimate group of up to 5 guests (no more) to take a trip to the playpen (the hub of activity on the lakefront). For groups larger than 5, consider renting our luxury cruiser, or other size power boats in our fleet of 4 boats to accommodate up to 24 guests.
We are docked at 31st street harbor which is about a 10-minute taxi from downtown. There is paid parking available onsite, as well nearby, or hop a ride-share as a group.

These rates are for BOAT RENTAL ONLY, as this is a BARE BOAT RENTAL COMPANY ONLY, called Chez Renee Voyage. Captains are not included in our company's quoted Pricing. The Captain's fee is a separate transaction between renter and captain (this is a US Coast Guard Law), where you will hire the captain and pay them directly. You are welcome to hire your own licensed captain (with owner approval), or you may hire a captain who is familiar with our boats from a list we shall provide you after you complete the reservation.
Separate Fee Structure:
In addition to the boat rental rate and the payment you will make to the captain, there is a fuel and cleaning fee. Fuel reimbursement will be $120 for our most popular itinerary to the playpen anchorage and back. Cleaning fee is $80 flat rate for any of the charter slots, for a combined total of $200, (which you will pay to us directly the day before departure). Lastly, river cruises are $200 additional for the reasons of extra fuel usage.
If you have any questions, we can answer them through the Boatsetter messaging platform before paying. Simply press "Request to Reserve" and send us an inquiry for a personalized offer based on the fee structure above.
