About Michael

“I'm heading into my 4th Season on Boat Bound and I've loved every minute of it!! I've just purchased my second boat, which is a big step up from my first 24ft Boat. The New Boat comes with all the bells and whistles and I didn't spare any expense. My day job is a Marketing Manager for a Liquor Company so I love to entertain and exceed customers expectations. I've hosted multiple engagements on my boat, Bachelorette Parties, Trips to the Casino in Indiana, Fire Works Outings, Playpen Days and River Trips. My boat is slipped behind the Northerly Island Concert Venue so I’ve also hosted a lot of pre and post concert dock events. You can hear all the concerts clear as day from my boat. Anything is possible so please let me host your next event!! Happy Boating!!! ”


Aboard since 2014

    Michael's Sea Ray was in perfect condition and allowed us to cruise on Lake Michigan comfortably in the 2-3 foot chop. If you have never seen the Chicago Skyline from the water, you should definitely give it a go this summer. Michael was quick to respond throughout the entire booking process and was early preparing the boat when we first arrived. Overall great experience and I plan on renting his boat again next time there is a concert playing at Pavilion One.

    We had an excellent day on Lake Michigan. Michael was more than accommodating, and I would certainly rent from him in the future.

    Our group had a fantastic time on Michael's boat! Michael was very responsive and was super helpful getting the reservation set up and answering any questions we had. The boat was in great shape and we had a wonderful time on the lake and the river.

    I will definitely rent from Michael again.

    Michael was so great and easy to work with. He met us at the dock early and walked through how the boat works with all the safety features. He also provided advice on best places to go out and really encouraged a good time. We were 9 people on the boat, and were very comfortable, not feeling squished. The Sundancer was beautiful - very clean, well maintained. Michael also provided a playpen inflatable raft that was very useful. I recommend Michael and the Sundancer for future trips on the lake.

    Absolutely fantastic boat and even more fantastic owner! Was extremely accommodating. Boat was clean/fully fueled, and Michael even provided a BRAND NEW raft that literally made the day. Will definitely rent from Michael again. Thanks again!

    Mike was fantastic to work with and his Sea Ray is kept in spectacular condition. It's easy access to the lake and just a quick ride away from Navy Pier and the PlayPen. This is a great value and I will definitely rent from Mike again on my next trip to Chicago!

    Michael's boat is everything we could have asked for to enjoy a day on Lake Michigan! It's the perfect size for almost anyone with boat driving experience to handle, has a great slip location to get on and off the water with ease, and the boat is in pristine condition. Michael is extremely friendly and flexible to coordinate with and is willing to go above and beyond to make sure our day fun and relaxing. Would recommend this boat to any and all Chicago boaters looking for a great skyline view!

    We had a great time on the Dream Crusher! The boat was perfect for hanging out on Lake Michigan with a few friends. Michael made it really easy for us to have a great day!

    The boat was super easy to operate, had a great sound system, and we'll definitely be back to rent it again. Oh, and if you have a big group, the boat right next to his is available on Boatbound as well... so you can rent both and all hang out comfortably together (like we did).

    Beautiful boat! Mike was extremely helpful and accommodating. He arrived before we did at the dock, pumped out the boat, cleaned it and got it in top shape for our day. I would highly recommend renting from him and may do so again in the future.

    Excellent boat and Michael was very accomodating and easy to work with. The boat slip is a piece of cake to get in and out of. Definitely would recommend and rent again!

    The Sea Ray 240 Sundancer was AMAZING!! It's a beautiful boat docked right next to Northerly - great location. Mike was very reliable, professional, and caring to our needs. I would recommend both him and his boat to anyone. Don't pass this up!
