“I'm the owner of a 2005 Sea Ray 270 Sundeck named "Riva Aquarama". I usually go boating every weekend and several weekdays during the season. I'm a licensed captain holding 50T USCG Master Mariner Credentials (MMC) as well as a VA Boating Safety course.”
Aboard since 2014
From Herndon, VA
Dmitry was great!!!! We really enjoyed him. He was very helpful and informed us the safety procedures before we left. He was an amazing captain and we felt very safe. He was very laid back and had a great personality! I would definitely have him as our captain again!
We had a wonderful day out on the Potomac - Dmitry was terrific to work with, even through the ups and downs of DC summer weather! He gave us some great suggestions for our day and helped us create the perfect itinerary. We enjoyed a beautiful ride down to Tim's Riverside for a great vacation lunch, saw Mount Vernon, Nats Stadium, and the monuments from a new perspective, and just enjoyed being on the water. The boat was easy to operate and Dmitry gave us an excellent overview on no wake zones, helpful tips on the boat's operation, and even introduced us to Potomac alligators! :) I highly recommend Dmitry and boatsetter - we will definitely be repeat customers!!
Had a fantastic time, and Dmitry was really helpful. Took us out for a short orientation at the beginning of the trip, which was great for getting oriented to the boat. We had absolutely no problems with the boat, and everything worked great. Would definitely recommend.
We had great time renting this boat to celebrate kids birthday! it was fun to do tubing for kids on Potomac! Dmitry's wife was on the boat to meet us 30 min before the start time, showed all basics and did check ups. Return was easy, I sent pics of the boat and took pic of the dashboard back to the owner. Gas station was closed at the time of our return, Dmitriy agreed to refuel himself, which saved time for me and was a big deal when you are on the boat with bunch of kids. I'll definitely rent again!
We had an amazing time on Dmitry's boat! I contacted Dmitry on a Monday morning after another Boatsetter renter cancelled our afternoon reservation just 6 hours in advance of our scheduled rental. We were so disappointed because we had been looking forward to our afternoon on the water for weeks, but I was nervous we wouldn't be able to find a new boat on such short notice. Dmitry went above and beyond to get us onto his boat the same day. He was flexible with our timing, responsive to messages, and worked hard to ensure we had the best experience. Dmitry had recently purchased a propane grill for the boat, and even though he hadn't mounted it yet, he worked hard to find a solution so that we could use the grill onboard. He also provided a portable speaker and many other fun things like fishing poles and jet skis. The boat itself was AWESOME - the perfect size for our 7 person group. It even has a small bathroom aboard which is rare for a boat of this size but a huge advantage. There is plenty of space to sit and relax and the canopy provides excellent shade.
My friends and I are already planning future trips on Dmitry's boat and I would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a fun day out on the water. Dmitry was a dream to work with and we couldn't be more thankful for his willingness to get us on the boat on such short notice. Thank you Dmitry, we had the best time!
First time for us to rent from Boatsetter - great experience. Dmitry was very helpful with answering questions before we actually confirmed our reservation with a credit card.
Once we met him at the boat, he spent significant time going over the boat and answering questions. It was a great time - we wish he could have controlled the sun.....
We will rent from him again and use the services of Boatsetter. Glad to have discovered this service.
Had a fun afternoon on the water! Dmitry was communicative in planning the event and a hands-off captain that just let us enjoy the trip. One star knocked off for not having fishing equipment when we had discussed having it on board.
I can't say enough good things about Dmitry and our experience renting this boat. Excellent communication throughout the process, even on the day of when rain was threatening he was flexible, understanding, and in regular touch. The boat ran great and is spacious. We had 6 adults and 4 children under 10yrs old on board and we were all very comfortable (we captained ourselves as we are a family who has owned boats in the past). We will definitely be renting this boat again in the future! Thanks Dmitry!
Our boating experience with Dmitry's Sea Ray 270 Sundeck couldn't have been better! Dmitry was very responsive/communicative throughout the whole process and flexible in letting us add people last minute. He also did a great job walking us through where everything was on the boat and how to use it, covering all the details. The boat itself was fantastic as it drove smoothly without any issues, comfortably fit all 11 of us, and provided enough sun and shade for everyone to be satisfied. If you're looking for a great day out on the water, Dmitry is your guy!
Dmitry was an excellent host and our boat was immaculate. Dmitry got me familiar with the different no-wake zones and best places to cruise and anchor. Dmitry was very quick to reply when we needed him. He was extremely professional and I will definitively rent from him again.
The boat was very comfortable for the 6 of us. Shade for some and sun for most. Tubing was the highlight for the kids. The tube holds 3 sitting upright, which is much better than being dragged around on your stomach. And the lesser thrill seekers enjoyed being pulled on the float in the no-wake zones. We'd absolutely do it again!
5+ Stars! We had such a blast on Dmitry's boat. I was a little nervous about renting a boat, since I had never done anything like this before. However, I am so glad we did and that we selected Dmitry. He was reliable, friendly, and safe, and he made sure we had a blast! We saw Georgetown, Navy Yard, and the Wharf waterfronts, stopped to go swimming, and even got to go tubing. I cannot tell you how happy we were with Dmitry's captain skills and his awesome (fast!) boat. Thank you, Dmitry, for helping make my husband's 30th birthday a success!
Dmitry was great! He was very easy to communicate with and plan our afternoon on the boat! He provided us with everything our group needed. I would definitively recommend, and we hope to use his boat again this summer. Thanks, Dmitry!
I can't believe I forgot to leave Dmitry a review!! The entire experience was wonderful. Dmitry is professional and fun and did a great job captaining our boat for my husband's 30th birthday. We plan to inquire for this year too!
Great guy, great boat, great experience on the Potomac! Dmitry was very friendly, patient and accommodating to a family of six with little kids. Highly recommended overall. The perfect boat for a day sightseeing DC like you've never seen before!
We rented Dmitry's Sea Ray 245 Weekender recently while on vacation in D.C. and can't say enough about how professional and helpful Dmitry was! We switched our reservation at the last minute from a Wednesday to a Monday and Dmitry was fine with that and jumped through a few hoops to get us taken care of. Very patient, very pleasant, completely professional.
The boat was right where he said to would be, ready to go and in pretty good shape considering the fact that it's a rental boat and probably gets abused quite a bit. Nothing real exciting to describe or review about the boat, except for the fact that the GPS was really wonky and kept freezing up. We had to restart it a few times and had to disconnect the power once to get it back in action. Not a huge deal, but when you're on an unknown waterway for the first time, the GPS gives you another layer of situational awareness, which helps to make the day more fun. Other than the flakey GPS, the boat was great!
As I mentioned above, Dmitry was fantastic to work with and I would 100%, no-doubt-about-it rent from him again. I'd give him a 5/5 stars, no question!
Great, well maintained boat! Dmitry is outstanding. His knowledge of both his boat controls/technical attributes, and the area waterways is excellent. Availability and response times via email, phone and text were under 8 hrs for my first time with him. Will be renting again, and recommending to others.
I had another great experience renting from Dmitry. I've booked with Dmitry several times now and he is always great to work with. He has also taught me a lot about boating. I like his Sea Ray 245 a lot -- great features and very well maintained. It turned out to be a nice day for a cruise up and down the Potomac -- to Georgetown, down to Old Town, and some other stops along the way. I can't say enough about how great Dmitry is to work with. I'm looking forward to taking Eureka out again.
Everything was perfect! Dmitry was accommodating, very knowledgeable and gave us a perfect itinerary that worked perfectly for our day on the water. Boat was mechanically perfect and provided us with a great day for sightseeing. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in an easy day out on the water in DC!
We had a very good experience with Dimitry. He was very responsive right from the beginning and patiently answered our dozens of questions. He was also willing to make adjustments to time and pick-up location. The boat was very nice and we had a blast. We will definitely rent from Dimitry again.
Dmitry was extremely easy to contact and communicated everything clearly. The boat was in pristine condition and we had an excellent time on the Potomac! We visited Georgetown and the National Harbor. It was truly a day to remember. We're thankful for the experience. We're thankful to Dmitry! Thank you!
We took our 3 grandchildren and our dtr out on the Potomac with Dmitry as our Captain. We had a fabulous day. The kids had a blast on the raft, also enjoyed swimming in the river. Went to lunch at the Marina. Dmitry was a great host. Good with the kids. Thank you Dmitry for a memorable experience. Lorraine and Fred
Dmitry was helpful and accessible. We had zero problems and a great time.
He has a great boat and is very knowledgeable about his boat.
My friends and I plan to be repeat renters. I would highly suggest his boat to others!!!
We just had another great rental of Dmitry's boat. Dmitry is always very accommodating and responsive. The boat is well maintained and perfect for fun day trips. With children having an actual enclosed head rather than a port-a-potty, makes trips a bit easier on us. I have no hesitation in rating the experience with 5 stars
Dmitry was extremely nice, I rented out the boat and had Dmitry helped being the captain for my moms birthday. It was a weekday and he was very flexible with the time. We were late for arrival, but he was very relaxed and very patient.
He also had everything on the boat, we had a chance to get into the water at the end of the day, and he was very nice and provided a lot of things that we didnt have on hand. Dmitry even told me about boats and let me drive it for a while.
I highly recommend him and this weekender, he's very friendly and very chill. All of the guests on the boat had a great time.
We had a great day on Dmitry's boat. He had it all ready for us to pick up in Georgetown which made it easy. Once we casted off, we cruised the potomac soaking in the monuments from the water. Then it was up the Anacostia River to check out Nationals stadium and the new Navy Yards. After that we set out for Alexandria, National Harbor, and eventually dropped anchor right across from Mount Vernon for some sunbathing, swimming, and rafting (included on the boat). On the way back we filled up at Columbia Island Marina and met Dmitry back in Georgetown. What a great day... on an inexpensive and easy to drive boat. Can't wait to come back to DC and rent this boat again!
This was my first experience with boatbound and Dmitry was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. My goal was to get some boating experience and Dmitry was a great teacher. I definitely plan to get some additional instruction with him. The boat was very nice as well and I look forward to taking it out on my own with family and friends once I get some more experience with Dmitry.
Great experience boating with Dmitry - his 270 Sundeck was perfect for an afternoon on the Potomac. We boated down to Mt. Vernon from Georgetown then back up to Three Sisters with seven aboard - the boat was roomy (we could have added a couple more and had plenty of room) and economical (less than half a tank for a full day down and back on the Potomac). Dmitry is very laid back and easy to work with and even accommodated us when we had to change the booking date. Highly recommended.
Dmitry was on time at the Georgetown Waterfront at 11:00 AM as agreed for my rental of his Sea Ray 245 Weekender. His boat check-out was very thorough and professional and I started the rental with a sound understanding of the layout, controls and characteristics of the boat. He shared specific local knowledge of the waterways; no wake zones, anchorages to avoid, etc. We had a fantastic day on the water going down river to Tim's Rivershore for shrimp and crabs and returning to meet Dmitry in Georgetown at 5:30.
Dmitry is a very professional and personable guy and I would definitely rent from him again and recommend him to others considering his Sea Ray boats.
Dmitry was great! He took the time to explain everything about the boat before we left for the day. He also helped us out with our route for the day, telling us where the best spots were and where the channel runs. The boat ran great and we didn't have any issues at all. Would absolutely recommend Dmitry to anyone looking to rent a boat.
Dmitry is a FIRST CLASS HOST, the boat was in great condition and he went above and beyond to make sure we were having a good time. His communication was great in ensuring no questions remained prior to us arriving. I could not have asked anyone else to facilitate such a good experience for my Fiance's Birthday. From emails, to arrival and set-up he was always prompt making me confident in my reservation. I will be sure to use Dmitry in the future!!
We had a perfect day on the Potomac River.
Dmitry was very friendly and easy going. He met us at the dock and had the boat ready for us right on time. We completed the walk-through and check list easily. This was our first time on the Potomac river and Dmitry went over the chart I had brought, highlighting the speed zones, shallow areas and points of interest. We were then off for our day of boating. This boat shows some signs of normal wear and tear for a boat of this age, however it ran well and we found the boat very comfortable and functional.
At the end of the day we returned to the dock and gave Dmitry a call. He arrived a short time later and after a short visit, we again completed the post rental check-out quickly and easily. Really a great day of boating.
This was our second time renting from Dmitry and it was amazing as the first time! He was very helpful in giving us direction and in figuring out when to return our boats (we rented both that he has on Boatbound). Would definitely do it again!
Dmitri was professional, thorough, and my group and I had a great experience with the boat which is great condition and ran flawlessly. His flexibility with the return time was awesome and let us have a very full day on the Potomac. Highly recommended.
We had a great experience renting from Dmitry! He was extremely nice, punctual and thorough with instructions on how to operate the boat and navigate the Potomac. The boat was very nice, clean and easy to operate. We would absolutely rent it again and definitely recommend it to anyone.
We had a fantastic day on Dmitry's Sea Ray boat. Dmitry was helpful in so many different ways that went above and beyond the duty of a boat owner. I use a wheelchair and Dmitry accommodated me by suggesting a marina that was easier to use. Great day, great guy and fantastic boat. Couldn't have asked for anything better or more.
This is a fantastic price point for both the boat and the rental experience Dmitry provides. The boat itself features plenty of seating, power, and features a Bimini top for shade on hot summer days. This 27 foot Sea Ray Sun Deck is meticulously maintained and very very clean. Dmitry was very helpful and efficient in getting our group acquainted with the boat and on the water in no time. I would highly recommend this rental experience to anyone!
Once again a great experience boating with Dmitry. It was my parents and siblings first time boating with Dmitry and after the trip they kept expressing how much of a great time they had and the great experience they had with Dmitry. Will rent again hopefully soon!
Dmitry is organized and accommodating. His run-through of the briefing was comprehensive, he was helpful in getting us out on time (despite being in the midst of rescuing paddleboarders from an unusually swift Potomac current) and the boat ran as advertized. Looking forward to the next outing.
Had a blast on Dmitry's 27' SeaRay Sundeck! Boat ran great and has a nice sound system. We were about 30 mins late due to some insterstate closures over Memorial Day weekend, but he was there and super cool about it. We ran down river to DCA and watched planes take off and then came back up river for some great floating just north of the Key bridge. The dude on the Nauti-Food barge was out and brought us over some tasty Nauti-Dogs! You should wave him down if you see him. Dmitry was throrough in the boat inspection and demo and made us aware of where the no-wake zones are and places to avoid. All around great time and super convenient being right at GW dock. Would absolutely rent from Dmitry again.
We had a great experience renting from Dmitry. He was very helpful in getting us comfortable with the boat, extremely flexible with the timing of pick up and drop off and an overall fun guy to rent a boat from. Will definitely rent from Dmitry again.
It was one of my best days, I strongly recommend this boat, I was planing for a surprise anniversary event to my wife, Dmitry was Amazing, he was very supportive, cooperative & friendly, he made all my dreams for the day come true, he provided all the facilities to make everything easier. The boat is really nice, comfortable & Clean. In reality it looks much better than the photos. Finally Me, my family and friends all enjoyed our day, for sure I will repeat it again.
Dmitry was phenomenal! I really can't say enough good things about this first experience with boat bound. The boat was perfect, clean and had every feature to make our evening enjoyable (music, cooler, speed, storage, comfortable seats, etc) Dmitry was at the dock early and came up to meet me on the pier. He was so friendly and knowledgable about the Potomac and knew all of the spots to moor and got us to Old Town in perfect timing for our dinner reservation. I would love to sail with him again!
My experience renting Dmitry's 24.5 Sea Ray Weekender was nothing short of exemplary customer service. From my very first inquiry, Dmitry was responsive, informative, and best of all flexible. Even up to the morning of the reservation, he kept me updated on a storm approaching and was willing to adjust the timing and location based on the inclement weather. Thankfully, the storm didn't come until much later in the day and we had a great time out on the water. His boat is aptly powered, handles well, and was given to us in great condition (clean & fully-fueled). Dmitry was also very thorough in his explanation of the boat and provides a great overview upon going out on the water. I will most definitely rent this boat from Dmitry again in the future!
Dmitry super nice, very helpful, and the day was a lot of fun. He offered to reschedule because of heavy rain on the day we had reserved. We were 3 onboard plus a child and that was plenty comfortable. Boat is fast, and the navigation instruments are helpful if you are not familiar with the Potomac. No downside, we plan to rent again.
I had a great experience with Dmitry and his boat Eureka! He knows the DC waterways like the back of his hand. He is very friendly and helpful to get you on your way on the water. I look forward to renting from him again. 5 Stars!!!!!
Dmitry was so awesome! He was immensely patient and gracious with my many questions about renting, questions about his boat, and questions about boating on the Potomac. He guided us thru his marina location. He did a great job with orientation to the boat when we got there. He was flexible about pickup and drop offs. His boat was solid and reliable...... a great casual cruiser for touring, with great features like depth, GPS for finding the channels, and even a radio. Nice big bow for rough water. Would definitely rent Eureka from him again.
Dmitry is a very nice guy who was very reliable. The boat was perfect for spending a few hours out on the water with friends and Dmitry was very flexible about when and where to meet us with the boat. The cost was incredibly reasonable and we had a great time.
D'mitri was very knowledgeable about boating on the Potomac and the Eureka comfortably fit all 8 of us including our large cooler. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had and helped make our day as smooth, easy, and fun as possible.
Dmitry is an extremely knowledgeable boater who works hard to make sure you enjoy your time on the water. He is very good at communicating, quick to respond to any questions, and really goes out of his way for the renter. Eureka! runs really well and comes equipped with everything you will need for a day on the water, whether that is cruising around, or finding a good spot and dropping anchor. Eureka! is very smooth and easily controlled and has enough power to put a smile on your face when you give her full power.
Dmitry's knowledge cannot be understated - it is what made the experience pleasurable as this was my first time renting through Boatbound. Having never traveled the Potomac, Dmitry was able to provide suggestions for places to go and was prepared to answer questions about navigating the DC area by boat.
If you are interested in trying Boatbound for the first time, I cannot reccomend Dmitry enough!
This was my second rental with Dmitry, and I cannot say enough good things about the experienced. Dmitry is always extremely responsive in communications, very accommodating with respect to the itinerary, and a superb teacher with respect to everything you would ever want to know about his boat and the Potomac. The boat itself is in great condition, and has everything that you could possible need for a safe and memorable day on the Potomac. This time we left/returned to Columbia Island Marina, which has become my favorite area marina because it has plenty of parking and a small cafe/store. I look forward to several other rentals with Dmitry this summer. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking to anyone looking to rent a power boat on the Potomac.
Dmitry was great to deal with and very accommodating with the departure time and arrival back to the harbor. Dmitry's Sea Ray was awesome; great condition and perfect for all areas of the Potomac. I would certainly rent from Dmitry again!
Would highly recommend!! We rented the boat from Dmitry for July 4th festivities and he promptly answered all our questions leading up to the rental. He was very receptive and accommodating to our requests. The boat was clean and perfect for our group (fits 6-8 people). It also includes tubing equipment which we very much appreciated. We're looking to rent again this summer!
Dmitry was awesome, he is very knowledgeable and def wanted us to have a good time. The boat is in great shape and is very comfortable to operate. Pick up and drop off was a breeze, will be renting a couple more times this summer!
It's always great to meet Boatbound owners in person, get a tour on their boat, and have a little fun. This week we rented Dmitry's Sea Ray which was perfect for cruising the DC waters. As one of our top owners, Dmitry is always quick to respond, makes sure you have everything you need to have an awesome day on the water, and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure you come back again and again.
His boat is awesome. For a beginner, a quick lesson from Dmitry should make you comfortable operating it. If not, ask him about getting a Captain. For the single day rental where you want to head under the Key Bridge, drop anchor by Three Sisters and just relax, this boat is ideal. With a cabin for napping, and a deck for getting some sun, stand up paddle boards and tubes, it's got everything you need.
If you want to pull a tube or skier, it's got those too. All in all Dmitry is a great owner who will make sure you and 6-8 of your friends have an awesome day on the water. I'd definitely rent this boat again!
I cannot recommend Dmitry enough. Anyone that joins Dmitry on his boat will have a day they will never forget. He knows the seas very well and has impressive attention to detail. The best part about cruising with Dmitry is you can truly feel his passion for boating at all times and it is infectious! Dmitry is a great teacher and an-all around fun guy to hang out with. I can't wait for our next trip with him!
5 out of 5 Stars for Dmitry and his Sea Ray 245!! Dmitry was more than accomidating whether is was bringing ice for the cooler or answering questions about boating! I will be refering him to family, friends, and clients. Thanks again Dmitry.
We had a great charter with Dmitry. He was very easy to work with, and always very responsive to e-mails. I was looking for someone who would be willing to teach me both his boat and navigation around the Potomac, and he was a great teacher! It was also very clear that he paid attention to the details, which I both noticed and appreciated. I look forward to going out on his boat again.
We had an great time with Dmitry captaining the boat full day. He was very responsive with all our requests to take our kids tubing and water skiing. His boat is very clean and nice. He has all the fun water sport gear and made them available to us. Dmitry wanted to make sure we had a great experience but he was also very safety conscious so we don't have worry. Our family had a super fun time and we look forward to rent from Dmitry again.
