NEW. Roomy. Sporty. Amazing handling. The award winning VR5 is simply an awesome boat. Do your research on the 2016 Bayliner VR5 and see what others say.
The VR5 was awarded an innovation award in 2016. It's a great NEW boat. This boat is perfect for Lake Pend Oreille. It is large enough to take the wake of other boats and sporty enough, with the 220 HP inboard Mercruiser to give you all the excitement anybody needs. The boat is located on our private dock boat lift on the South Side of the lake in Sagle, about 25 minutes from Long Bridge. You can park on our property during your rental period if you like.
I highly recommend Dave Randall and his Bayliner if you are going to be anywhere near Lake Pend Oreille, ID. Our family vacation on the lake literally would have been setback without Dave's listing, approval and follow-through. The VR5 is very clean and comes as advertised, and if you know your way around a bowrider/sport boat there is no reason to hesitate! Dave sets you up with excellent instructions regarding all the logistics and operating procedures, and in our case went above and beyond at the last minute to help us modify the schedule and pickup the boat earlier than originally scheduled. We will definitely be back, thanks again Dave!
Perfect boat for my husband and I to enjoy while we were on vacation. Location of the boat makes fueling up at Bottle Bay a breeze. Dave makes the process easy and is very helpful and speedy to respond. Great boat to cruise and lounge on the water.
Great boat, newer and clean. Rental was easy with all Dave’s instructions and welcome sheet. Dave was kind enough to give us some suggestions of places to visit and eat while we were in town on vacation. Highly recommend renting this boat for a day (or four!) on the lake!
Dave was very professional and a pleasure to do business with. He was promptly responsive to questions and made the rental process very straightforward. His boat is in near-new condition and delivered very reliable fun on the lake. If we return to the Pend, I'll probably choose his boat again as this experience was very positive. However, I do agree with the comments regarding a relative lack of power. Specifically, the boat has a poor hole-shot and takes a really long time to get on plane. This is not a problem for cruising and tube-pulling, but if you're looking to do some slalom, you may be disappointed.
Thank you Dave for helping to make a great vacation! Cheers!
Dave made it incredibly easy to rent the boat, and get out on the lake in a timely manner. The boat was in great condition, and had no mechanical issues. Although it lacks a certain amount of power for towing someone (adult) on a wake board, I would highly recommend this boat for cruising the lake.
We very much enjoyed renting Dave and Lee’s bayliner. The boat was clean, easy to drive, and fun to operate. Navigational and operational instructions were conveniently provided onboard as well as safety flotation devices and signaling equipment. Would highly recommend renting to anyone wanting to have a nice fun day on the lake.
The boat is available to the public, but it's mainly for the guests who get lucky enough to stay at Dave & Lee's romantic cabin getaway. They make it super convenient to take the boat out from the cabin. The boat itself is perfect for the lake, easy to drive, perfect for cruising or exploring the lake. Not once did we have any issues and Dave's boat guide makes it extremely easy to take out and put back. Highly recommend.
