    The Yamaha 212 we rented from Greg for our week long stay in Marathon was an amazing boat. The boat is kept in great shape. We had no issues with the boat at all. It was very responsive, and certainly has "get up and go" potential.

    Greg was extremely flexible and an absolute pleasure to work with. He was more than accommodating with our schedule. I would certain rent from Greg again!

    Greg’s customer service was first class start to finish. He went above and beyond when delivering and picking up the boat to our rental in Key Colony. The boat itself was perfect. Ran perfect and has a lot of nice features. We ran out to a few reefs and the inboard motors make it perfect for swimming and snorkeling. We highly recommend Greg.

    FABULOUS boat and Greg was a very easy and nice boat renter. Comes to where you are to launch the boat and spends time answering all of your questions and even gave us some tips on cool places to go. Has an iPad with a great program to help you navigate the waters which made it SUPER helpful to stay away from the shallow spots, which there are A LOT OF in Florida!!

    We had such a great time out on Greg's boat in Marathon Key! There aren't many beach access points, so a boat was definitely the best decision. It was clean and super nice! Greg even let us borrow fishing poles. Highly recommend!

    Great boat in excellent condition. Easy to run and had everything on board to help enjoy the water. Really appreciated the swimming platform out the back and bluetoothing our music through the stereo.
    Greg was informative, easy to deal with and communicated everything well. We will be renting again!

    The entire experience was great. Hassle free, the boat was clean and performed well. Great for fishing, tubing or just site seeing. Greg was a pleasure to work with and very helpful. I will definitely rent from Greg in the future

    Glad I found Boat Setter, made a great trip Phenomenal! Boat Setter did everything they said they would and it was easy!! Greg, our Boat owner was great, friendly Informative, in touch with us daily and available if needed. I've owned several boats but never a jet boat, Greg explained everything in detail and once we left the boat ramp I was confident navigating the waters of the Florida Keys.

    I highly recommend the service. We took our own boat to the reefs to snorkel, to Spanish Harbor, lunch on Summerland Key and eventually anchored at a deserted little island several miles off the coast, had drinks and hung out. Adventure is WAY MORE FUN when your in control of your destination!

    Thanks Boat Setter!
    Thanks Greg!

    We will be back this summer and we WILL be renting again!

    We had a great week in Marathon and renting the Yahama 212x made it perfect! Fun to drive and easy to get in and out for snorkeling.

    Greg’s Yamaha 212X was a blast. Very fun to drive and perfect for the Keys. The iPad navigation made it very easy to go wherever we wanted. The boat was in excellent condition. Greg was very responsive and helpful from initial reservation to the orientation to pickup. I would recommend this boat to anyone seeking to take advantage of the beautiful waters of the keys. It was the highlight of our trip!

    Greg was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very prompt in communication leading up to the rental and then gave us a thorough overview of the boat and the area. His boat is great for the keys and it was the highlight of our trip. Couldn’t recommend Greg and his Yamaha any higher!!

    We had an outstanding time renting Greg's boat!! Greg was very friendly to deal with and provided a very thorough overview of the boat and the area. We stayed in Duck Key and were able to enjoy the waters of the keys from Marathon to Islamorada and the boat handled very well. We will definitely be back and rent this boat again...thanks, Greg!

    Greg's boat is a clean and perfect beauty. Fast and spacious, perfect to visit all the sandbars around the middle keys. Greg thought of all details, iPad navigation, snorkeling gear for 4, floats, and all the little details that you need when you are on the water. Best boat rent I ever had! And Greg was the most helpful and friendly person, delivering us the boat to our house and picking it up from there, and helping us in any situation that came up during our one week with him. I hope he stays in business because he and his boat will be the reason to come back next year.

    Second time is the charm! Greg once again delivered! This time we went to Alligator Reef and Marathon and a sandbar that Greg graciously already had pinned on his iPad. Can't wait to come back!

    We had a fantastic time! The boat was clean, comfortable, and working perfectly. Greg gave us a full orientation when he dropped off the boat so we knew exactly how to use everything. The iPad that he provided was also very helpful. It showed us the ocean depth all around the Keys, the best paths to drive through the channels, and the shallow places to avoid. He also replied promptly every time that we texted or called him with questions. We couldn't ask for anything more, and we hope he's still renting the boat when we return to the Keys.

    BOOK.THIS.BOAT.NOW!!!! It's that simple, you will not find a better boat than this Yamaha or a better owner than Greg. Our family enjoyed a fantastic vacation and made unforgettable memories snorkeling, tubing, and hanging out on the awesome rear deck while anchored at sandbars. The boat fit 8 of us very comfortably, performed flawlessly, and was so much fun to drive. And I Can't say enough good things about Greg, who took his time explaining all aspects of the boat, gave us great tips on places to visit, and was all around a great person to deal with. We will undoubtedly return again and will certainly book with Captain Greg.

    Greg was so easy to work with from the initial phone conversation, to the meeting at the boat ramp, to picking the boat up!! He made great recommendations for us a family of (5) to due and places to go. I would highly recommend Greg and when we get back to Islamorada we are sure to rent from him again.

    This trip was so fun! The boat was spacious, clean, modern and a blast to be on all around. Captain Greg made sure to give us the ultimate tour and have so many toys for us to play with. All of us agree, we will definitely be booking this vessel with the cool captain again!

    Greg was a terrific owner and could not have been more helpful. We had a 1 month rental and Greg checked in every so often to make sure we were having an enjoyable and hassle free experience. The boats was exactly as advertised and was clean and seemed virtually brand new. We took the boat and 7 adults out to Alligator Reef for an afternoon and the boat had plenty of room. Fast fun boat.

    Great experience! First time using boatsetter and Greg made sure everything went smoothly. Boat was delivered on time and he took the time to make sure you were familiar with it before he left. Will definitely be renting from him again in the future!

    We had a fantastic week of Cruising the Keys in Greg’s Yamaha. The boat ran great and handled some pretty windy days without incident. Greg was fantastic to deal with, very professional and responsive. We made arrangements to meet at a local boat ramp in Key Largo and Greg provided an excellent overview of the boat, features and safety equipment. Great experience and I will definitely hook up with Greg next vacation in the Key Largo.

    Boat is in very good condition and very well appointed. Lots of extras to make your day on the water enjoyable including an available cooler, some snorkel gear, more than enough safety gear and most importantly a GPS app to ensure you stay in deep enough water to avoid sucking sea grass into the impellers. Watch some videos about operation of a jet boat and take your time around the dock and you will be fine with the nuances of jet power.

    Greg was fantastic to deal with. This was my first experience with jet drive propulsion which turned out easy and fun to operate. The boat is versatile and handled rough water much better than expected. We had a blast with this boat and would definitely consider renting again.
