The boat

This brand new Bayliner is set up perfectly to enjoy Lake Union. Cruise around watching seaplanes take off, head towards the Ballard locks, or swing by Portage Bay. Bring along some floats and enjoy Seattle's summer from onboard the perfect lake boat.

It has a Bluetooth stereo and seating to comfortably fit 8 adults. Just bring along ice, drinks, towels, and floats to make your trip a memorable one.

Swimming, cruising, relaxing, and champagne sunsets are what it is best suited for.

The speed limit in all of Lake Union is 7knots.

Sailgating packages available. Additional captain wages will be required and paid directly to the captain by the renter per USCG rules. Captains wages are $50/hr.

If you wish to take the boat onto Lake Washington you are also required to have a State Boater Education Card - if you just wish to stay on Lake Union the temporary license we will issue you at check-in will suffice. We do not rent to people with no boating experience.

I have been around boats my entire life and started with Boatsetter a while back with one boat. The ability to provide people with great on-the-water experiences has led to me continue to expand the fleet and build out the team. More than happy to answer any of your questions!
