Following up from previous reviews - we can only add that the rental experience we had with Steve & handover with Jimmy is the best we have had whilst on vacation in Fort Lauderdale. There is always a slight apprehension when you are renting from an unknown (to us) person, but from the immediate responses by email from Steve to the actual handover on the 2 days we rented by Jimmy - we had nothing to worry about. As for the boat itself - it ran flawlessly - superb boat for what we required - just stayed on the Intracoastal - dropped anchor at a sandbar and had the most relaxing time... Will definitely be renting again on our next vacation - Thanks guys - really made our vacation special
I’ve rented a lot of boats, first time on boatsetter... and I must say, that this was by far, my BEST experience to date! The boat was absolutely awesome..like new! Everything I could’ve asked for and more. Jimmy the mate was very friendly as well. Overall Stephen made this experience superb for my son and I... I will always be a customer ! Thank you so much
Stephen's boat was phenomenal. The instruction we received from his first mate Jimmy was exceptional and first class. If I am ever in the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area I will rent from Stephen in a heartbeat. Both Jimmy and Stephen made the experience so effortless, I highly recommend renting this boat.
I rented Stephen 2500XS on Feb 22 2018 while my wife and I were down in Fort Lauderdale. I would rent it from Stephen again and would recommend it to anyone looking to rent that size boat. Boat ran great and had all the proper equipment on it. The GPS plotter was awesome,it was like watching a big screen TV. We didn't go out the channel into the ocean but its more then capable to do so if you choose too.
Jimmy works for Stephen and meets you at the dock to go over the entire boat and answer any question you may have. Then he meets you back at the dock when you return.
Can't say enough about the entire experience and how Stephen and Jimmy run things.
Stephen boat was in great shape and very comfortable, powerful too, with plenty of amenities. Jimmy was awesome, punctual, and very helpful with boat overview and guidance. we had 4 adults and 2 small children they were very happy with the boat space and safety. We plan to rent it again.
