Reviews of Michael (31)


  • The boat was a blast and Michael was great to work with.


  • Mike's boats super awesome! Great time with friends, easy pick up and drop off service from Mike. Will definitely rent again! A+


  • Great experience! We had such a great time, Michael really took his time to make sure we had everything we needed, and communicated all day prior to getting on the boat. I will definitely be renting with him again!


  • 2nd time renter and once again Michael went above and beyond and made the entire experience easy and enjoyable. I am sure we will be renting again in the future!


  • 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.


  • Good boat. Good service.


  • 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 boat for a family outing. Michael was easy to work with and very responsive to us. Would recommend renting his boat and using his VIP service.


  • Great experience with Michael. He was on time, answered my questions, and accommodated our needs.


  • Michael was awesome. And the boat exceeded our expectations. We had 10 people onboard and it was perfect. I would rent from Michael again any day!


  • 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.


  • I can't say enough good things about Michael. He was very accommodating. We had a great weekend with his boat. H


  • Great boat for a family or group day around Charleston Harbor.


  • Michael,
    Thank you for a terrific experience. The boat was clean and ran well. Your concierge was right on time and convenient. Overall it was a fantastic day.
    Thanks again,
    Drew


  • Great boat to cruise around in with several people. Many comfortable places to sit, plenty of space, easy to use, and plenty of power. Will definitely rent again!


  • Michael was very professional and responsive throughout the rental process. I highly recommend renting from him. The boat was a blast for a day on the water and fit the 12 of us that went very comfortably.


  • Really great day out on this boat. Mike's concierge service is worth it. I would highly recommend this boat.


  • 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.


  • Michael was very easy to rent from, he responded quickly and kept me updated! We had a captain man the boat for a group of girls and had a good time. The boat is spacious and fast! Would recommend renting!


  • An absolutely perfect rental...Michael was great...flexible with dropoff and pickup. Loved the Yamaha! We will rent with him again!


  • Michael was extremely flexible and helpful. His Yamaha 242 Limited was perfect! It was so nice, comfortable and roomy! We would definitely rent from him again.
    Thank you!


  • 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!


  • The boat was perfect and Michael was right on time with the boat in the water and ready to go. I will definitely book with Michael next time we want a day on the water.


  • 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.


  • Michael was outstanding! Valet the boat was prompt and was very helpful. His vessel is outstanding very smoothe and a great amount of fun. We will definitely be renting it again and recommend everyone to do so.
