From Charleston, SC
Mike's boats super awesome! Great time with friends, easy pick up and drop off service from Mike. Will definitely rent again! A+
Michael made our boating experience great. He regularly kept in contact with me regarding my questions and the process of renting a boat. The boat looked awesome the day we got it, exactly as pictured. We were all able to fit on board (12) and we got to explore so much of the Charleston waterways. The boat had plenty of power and was perfect for what we needed. It was all a pretty seamless, easy process thanks to Michael. I'll definitely be renting from him again in the future.
Positives: The boat was in the water ready for us.
Negatives: This boat is in Poor condition at best. The boat kept stalling on us and would not idle. Every time put into reverse would stall which made it nearly impossible to anchor/park. Steering linkage it is so stiff is stuck that my wife would not steer the boat. Pushbutton for forward reverse handle is missing making it difficult to keep pushing a sharp object with your thumb. Lack of comfortable seating. Radio not working. This boat should have quite a bit of repair and cosmetic fix up before being rented.
Booking with Michael was a great experience. He is very accommodating, helpful, and respectful. This was my second time renting this boat from Michael and it is still a beautiful boat. Michael met us at a boat ramp, of our choosing, for the pickup and drop off. After storms began rolling in, he was quick to show up to pull the boat out of the water so we could get out of the storm.
I highly recommend both Michael and this boat. You will have a blast.
Great experience with Michael. He was on time, answered my questions, and accommodated our needs.
Rented this boat from Michael to use for wetlands research. Boat ran great other than being a tad slow to start up. Was perfect for what we needed to do out in the marsh. Thanks Michael!
This was my first experience with BoatBound and I would definitely do this again! Michael was professional, helpful, and in my opinion had an amazing deal for his boat rental. His boat and hospitality more than met my expectations and I'm grateful that everything went smoothly
Had an amazing day on the water! Michael made the entire process simple and enjoyable. We had 8 adults and 1 child and had plenty of room! The boat is easy to operate, clean, and a blast to drive! I will definitely be renting again when we have friends in town.
My wife and I rented Mikes boat, first time taking a boat on the ocean, we had a great time. The only thing that was negative about the experience was that the boat would start, called Mike and had the mechanic call me. He had to come down to the landing to get it started. Once it was started it ran great. The MPH and fuel gage did not work as well. Since this boat is a trailer able boat don't forget to ask Mike which landing is the best to use at the time of rental. All in all we did have a really good time and would rent the boat again.
Took the boat out for the second time in one week. That shows how great it is to work with Michael and how amazing the boat is. We wanted to rent a boat last minute during mid day and Michael was more then accommodating to my needs. We enjoyed a wonderful charleston sunset and we were able to spend quilty time with family and on a short notice. Michael is a great and professional boat owner. Highly recommended using him for all of your rental needs.
By far the greatest boating rental experience I have had. Boat is just perfect for for a day out on the water with good friends and family . Took the Yamaha out for a friend's birthday and he loved it. Michael put it in the water for us and also pulled the boat out and cleaned it for us when finished. The boat as previously stated in other reviews is a boat you would see in the movies. Absolutely sleak and fast and just what was needed for our birthday outing. Will use Michael for all my further rental needs. Great day on the water, couldn't have asked for anything else. The boat has great audio and amazing features.
This boat was equal parts comfortable and equal parts fast and responsive! Michael was a total professional and made sure that we were totally set for a great day on the water. He had the boat ready to go in the water and was there for pickup to take it out. Couldn't have been a better experience renting from him.
Michael has to be one of the nicest folks I've met. He was overly accommodating and thorough in making sure I understood everything about his boat, and had what we needed for a successful event. He was super flexible in making the arrangements for pick up/drop off, times, etc which made the experience even that more pleasurable. His boat was like something from Miami Vice, absolutely beautiful and worked flawlessly. We use the boat for a managers day out for 11 people and everyone had plenty of room to relax, even played for a while pulling a tube with the boat still fully loaded and it handled the job without a problem. I would recommend using this rig to anyone that wants an honest deal, and a trouble free experience. Thanks Michael from all 11 of us, you made our year!
What an amazing day! I rented Michael's boat for a day out with my girlfriend, to celebrate her birthday. The experience was nothing short of spectacular.
Michael was very communicative throughout the entire process. He responded in a timely fashion to all of my questions before I committed all the way up to meeting him at the boat launch. Very professional and also just a genuinely nice guy.
We took advantage of Mike's special offer to valet the boat to the location of our choice and also to take care of any of the clean-up afterwards. We simply showed up to the dock and the boat was already in the water, ready to go. Afterwards, I pulled the boat up to the dock, tied it off, and Mike took it from there.
This boat is outstanding. It's powerful, loaded with amenities (touchscreen interface, bluetooth sound system, depth finder, cooler space, etc..), comfortable, and rather luxurious. You will simply not find a better boat rental deal anywhere around Charleston.
I highly recommend experiencing Michael's Yamaha 242.. You will not be disappointed.
