    Oct. 03rd

    Emil was already there when we arrived about 15 min early. The process was simple and he made our family feel very welcomed. Had a variety of life jackets to choose from (which was great since my little one outgrew his, and we didn’t have time to purchase our own). The boat is Fabulous!!! Thank you Emil for a memorable day!

  • We had an amazing time on Emil’s boat! Super clean, smooth riding, and perfect for water sports. Emil was a good communicator, very accommodating, and punctual. The Sea Ray was perfect for a day on the lake for the 6 of us. It ran smoothly and was fuel efficient. Would definitely rent from Emil again!

  • Emil was very helpful both ahead of our sailing date and the day of. He beat us to the dock the morning of our rental and had everything ready to go. His boat was perfect for our exploration of Lake Washington and Lake Union. Would definitely look to rent with Emil again!

    We had a wonderful day on the water in Emil's SeaRay. We are 2 families - at total of 8 people - with teenage boys and spent hours tubing, learning to water ski, and wake board. The boat was a perfect size for us - very clear - everything worked and performed wonderfully. It has a surprising amount of storage. Emil was great to work with - very responsive, on time, organized, and friendly. Thanks for a great day

    Emil was an excellent host and his boat is flawless. We booked his boat less than 24 hours hours before our expected launch time... and Emil was very accommodating for the specific time and place we wanted to launch the boat and brought a large variety of life jackets/floats for us to choose from. We will certainly rent from him again! Thanks Emil!

  • Emil and his boat were amazing! He has a beautiful boat and lots of toys for a day in the water. We rented his boat for Labor Day weekend for my family of 6 and it was the perfect size. Great communication and very friendly with tips and all specs of the boat. Definitely recommended! Marcella

  • Second time renting from Emil, and another great experience.

    My wife and I had a great experience renting Emil's boat. Emil is a great guy who made the handoff very easy. He was timely, attentive, nice, and had plenty of fun water gear for us to choose from. The Sea Ray (which was already in the water when we arrived!) was in great condition, was very comfortable, and handled really nicely. We look forward to renting from Emil again in the future!

    I had a great experience on the lake. Thanks to Emil for easy and quick transaction. When I arrived at the boat launch. Emil was already there and the boat was ready to go.

  • Emil was awesome. This is my 2nd time renting from Emil and my 6 or 7th time renting through Boatsetter. I have to say out of all the boats I have experienced Emil's is the best. The boat is practically new and Emil provided life jackets and an inner tube to use. Emil is flexible and lets you choose your drop off location. We arrived at the exact time agreed on and Emil had the boat in the water and ready to go. The day on the lake was beautiful and the boat was perfect for the 5 of us. I would highly recommend Emil for your next boating adventure!

  • Beautiful boat. Emil was super helpful walking us through everything, accommodating to our schedule, and was perfectly on time. Provided life jackets, skis, tube, wake board. We had a wonderful day on the water and look forward to renting your boat again. Thanks!!

    Emil was pleasure to deal with. He was very flexible about the timing we wanted to start the trip. When we got the point, everything was already prepared for us and the boat was on the water. The boat was great, very clean and well maintained. Emil did a great job explaining all the details about the boat. We had a great time. Thanks Emil. We will definitely rent from you again!

  • Fantastic boat! Emil is super responsive, great communication. He’s waiting for us with boat already launched in the morning. This is our 2nd time rental from Emil, excellent service as usual. We had a great day on the lake. Will definitely come back and recommend to others!

    Emil was super easy to work with and very responsive throughout the whole process. Emil's beautiful boat was spotlessly clean, easy to operate, fast, and very comfortable. We had a great day on Lake Washington and hope to rent again with Emil soon. Many thanks!

  • This was a beautiful new boat in pristine condition. Making the arrangements for pick up and drop off was easy. Everything was as described, and as promised. It was completely turnkey. It could not have been easier, or more pleasant.

  • Emil was waiting for us when we arrived with a huge array of lifejackets and toys for the kiddos. His tube recommendation was spot on and the kids had a blast playing. The boat was beautiful, clean, and easy to drive. The binoculars inside were a nice touch as well. My daughter was so excited to look at the snow on Mt. Rainier. Our littles didn't quite make it to the end of our rental and Emil met us early for our return. We will use Emil and his boat again!

    We had a fantastic time on Emil’s boat! The pre-trip planning went smoothly - Emil was a good communicator and very accommodating. The Sea Ray was perfect for a day on the lake for the 4 of us. It ran smoothly and was fuel efficient. A definite perk was not having to fuel up on the lake ourselves. Would definitely rent from Emil again!

    Emil was the best host. He walked us through the boat and left us so many things to have a successful day on the water. His boat was in amazing state and was super clean! I highly recommend renting from him!

  • We had such a great time on Emil's boat! He had many different sizes of life jackets for our group, including ones that fit our young kids. He was very easy to communicate with and was exactly on time for pickup and drop off. We highly recommend renting from him!

    From beginning to end Emil was FABULOUS to work with as we arranged to rent his boat. He was very responsive and clear in his communication. His boat was immaculate, he had a large variety of toys to select from and he was very polite to speak with. With his boat and guidance, my family had an awesome day on the water!

    It was a great experience taking Emil's boat out into Lake Washington. We picked up the boat in Sunnyside dock near gas works. He was right on time and waiting for us. He was kind enough to provide us with tube, skiis and life jackets. The boat ride itself was really smooth. This was my first time tubing as well so I had a lot of fun. On the way back I just had to text him and he was back to pick up his boat. Overall it was a pretty smooth day with no problems whatsoever. I would definitely recommend renting Emil's boat, and will do so myself if I get some free time again.

  • A fantastic experience from end to end. Emil is quick to respond during the booking process and he answered all of my questions. He also showed up 15 minutes early for launch, making sure the boat was impeccably clean and that we had a variety of life vests to choose from. Emil recently upgraded his boat and allowed us to retain the price we agreed on for his smaller boat (Bayliner 185). I can’t recommend Emil enough!

  • Emil was great! Boat was ready in water before we even got to the dock. On time, communicative, and the boat was immaculate. I’d rent from Emil again in the future!

  • Our rental with Email was flawless. Communication before the rental day was a breeze, he was super helpful and quick to respond. Day of our rental was a super hot busy day at the boat launch, and Emil already had the boat in the water, ready to go when we arrived! Our experience with Emil was fabulous and will definitely rent again!

    We had an amazing day on the water by renting from Emil. When we showed up, Emil already had the boat launched and ready to go with all the water toys we had requested. The boat is really nice with plenty of power and a nice stereo. It also has a large bimini top which we really appreciated since it was 90 degrees out. We will definitely rent Emil's boat again.

  • Emil has a shiny brand-new boat and he is really easy to communicate. He has a tons of equipment to choose from. He also helped with fueling the boat so we don't need to, which saved a lot of time for us. My friend and I had a wonderful day on lake washington!

    Emil and the boat were both awesome! Very responsive during the booking process. Great selection of life jackets and toys on a high quality boat.

    Jul. 20th

    Emil’s Sea Ray was exactly the boat we were looking for! He was quick to respond to my messages, was on time, and his boat was immaculate! He had life vests for us all- and my family comes in every shape and size! He also had a tube and wake board for us to use! He had all kinds of extras available, all of our kids were so happy!
    Emil was kind and courteous at both drop off and pick up. It was our daughter’s birthday and he made sure to wish her a happy birthday and ask at the end how her birthday on the water was. It was a little extra that we didn’t expect. We look forward to renting with him again!!

  • This is the nicest boat rental on Lake Washington. It is also owned by the nicest owner ever. Emil was so overly generous, helpful, and thoughtful with his super amazing clean and easy to use boat rental. Highly recommend - this is my first choice for renting hands down if it is available. Thank you Emil.

    My friends and I had the pleasure of enjoying Emil’s beautiful boat today. We started our 8 hour rental from Mercer Island Boat launch and Emil was waiting with a big smile and a willingness to share his knowledge. We had a party of 8 and thoroughly enjoyed the day, time went fast and the boat was a dream. I would highly recommend Emil and his very new boat, we will be back. Thanks for a fabulous day.

  • Spotless boat. Easy communication with owner Emil. He and his family were accommodating on our chosen day—shifting time a little to help us dodge the rain. Everything went at least as well as expected on Lake Washington. Would gladly rent from Emil again.

  • Emil was wonderful to work with. Flexible and easy to contact. The boat was clean and comfortable. Easily fit our family on it. Easy to drive. Would definately rent again.

We will defiantly book this boat again!!!

    Emil and his wife were great. Boat was all ready and on time right at my local launch. Super new and clean. They provided plenty of choices for watersports life vests, and had a tow rope and innertube all set up. And they were there for pickup right on time too. We gave them the boat and left, they handled all on and offloading. Highly recommend!

    Couldn't have asked for a better first experience renting a boat than this. Been a boat owner for 20 years, and after this experience I may never buy a boat again! Emil was right on time with the delivery and pick up, boat was clean and prepped and ran perfectly. Thanks Emil. Can't wait to book again.

    I can’t recommend renting with Emil highly enough! This was the second time I’ve rented one of Emil’s boats, and both times have been wonderful experiences. Not only is he extremely fast to respond and goes out of his way to provide you with fun experience, but this boat is also brand new. If you are looking to have a great time on the water, rent with Emil!

  • We’ve rented a previous boat owned by Emil and he has always been so helpful and very communicative. Today we took out his new boat which drives like a dream. Anyone would be crazy to pass up a day in this boat for such a great price! We will be renting from Emil again soon.!

  • Great new boat. Emil was great to work with; friendly, quick, and accommodating. I couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience

  • What a beautiful day to get out, and on Mothers Day weekend! Emil was so easy to work with, and quick in all his responses to my questions. The boat ran wonderfully, and was very clean. It was nice to have the swim deck on the back as we have a younger kid. The boat was perfect for our family of 3. Highly recommend renting through Emil!

  • After 6 weeks in quarantine, Emil and his boat were a nice break from being locked up at home. He was responsive prior to booking and was on time for pickup and drop off. The boat was in great condition and was a pleasure to drive. As for the actual day on the water, it was very much 'contact less'. We met at the drop (keeping distance of course), went over the boat and off we went. Will definitely rent from Emil again!

  • Find day on Lake Washington!

  • Emil was fantastic! He had the boat already in the water ready to go for us. He brought it to Lake Stevens for us as well. The boat was super clean and ready to go and although we didn't use any water toys, he had so many for us if we wanted. Loved the boat. It was easy to use and we had an AWESOME time on it!!!

  • Emil is fantastic! I will definitely rent from him again. Emil was responsive, accommodating, kind, and very polite. He had the boat all ready for us, in the water, prepared with life jackets and toys that we requested (inter tube) upon our arrival.

My group had such an amazing experience renting from Emil, we definitely plan to rent from him again in the future. Thank you again!

  • We had a great time going around Lake Washington. Perfect boat for cruising around and water sports. Clean and in great condition, power when you needed it, comfortable enough for the 6 adults that were on board (7 would be fine - 8 might start to feel cramped).

The Bayliner was as advertised: in good condition, ran smoothly, and worked great! I would absolutely rent from Emil again would recommend him to anyone looking for a daily rental.

  • This was my first time renting on Boat Setter. Emil was super accomodating with start/end times, flexible on boat launch location, very punctual, and a pleasure to deal with. The boat was exactly as advertised - not too flashy but perfect for a nice, relaxing cruise - with no issues. We had a great time and would definitely consider renting again. Thanks, Emil!

  • Emil was a great host, meeting us by the lake and even being understanding when things went wrong. Would recommend the boat and host. Thanks for making it a great experience.

  • We rented Emil’s boat for a birthday out on Lake Washington and it was an amazing experience! Emil boat is perfect for 6 or less people looking to spend a day cruising the lake and tubing.

  • Emil was a great 'host' - he was on time, thorough, and made the process incredibly easy! His boat was clean and perfect for our group. Will definitely rent from him again!

  • Emil is the best! We’ll be renting from him again this year after lots of fun last year on his boat!!!

    Emil and his Wife made my Husbands Birthday Amazing!!! We will most definitely be renting from them again, the boat was very clean and in great condition. Thanks again!

  • I booked Emil's boat at the last moment and he was very prompt to reply and after a quick chat he accepted the booking. He was also very accommodating with our time and was there to launch and retrieve the boat for us.
    Will DEFINITELY rent from Emil again.

  • I rented Emil's Bayliner for a full-day on Puget Sound and could not have been more satisfied with the experience. The boat matched Emil's description and he was very accommodating with the use of his crab traps. He was very responsive in communications and flexible in timing. I love that he launched the boat for us and handled the take-out. Overall, my family and I had a fantastic day on the water thanks to Emil and I would enthusiastically recommend renting from him.

  • Emil was really a great guy and very accommodating. His boat was in great condition, very comfortable and had plenty of power. He also has lots of water toys and equipment to choose from to add something extra to your day on the water. My family and I had an awesome day out on Lake Washington. It was a great experience for me as a renter and I would highly recommend renting from Emil for your next boat trip! I will definitely be a repeat customer.

  • Emil is super great as an owner: flexible, very quick and clear communication, helpful, and no surprises. The Bayliner is such a fun boat! Note that you should be ready for it to be a bumpy ride if you are going into some of the choppier parts of the San Juans or The Sound. But the boat is very well outfitted and handles nicely. Highly recommended!

  • Emil, and his boat, are great! He was very helpful, flexible and generous! We will be renting from him again, and hopefully soon! Thanks for everything!

  • Emil is great to work with. This is the second time we have rented from him. He’s responsive and always on time. He supplies some water toys and is very gracious. We had a fabulous day on the water thanks to him and his boat.

  • Emil was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning of just seeing if his boat was available for Seafair Sunday. Great communication back and forth before actually meeting him at the dock at the agreed upon time in the morning with the boat all ready to go in the water. Very thorough at showing me where everything was on the boat that we may need.

    Our fun day on the water went by so quick that my friends and I wanted a little extra time and Emil had no problem with that, so we were really happy he was so cool.

    The price to rent his boat beat everything on here by a bunch so I had such a positive experience dealing with him for my first rental on Boatsetter.

    Emil was very prompt in submitting the launch fee and gas cost to Boatsetter as well as closing the deal out so I got my security deposit back in three days after the rental. I would not hesitate to deal with Emil again.

  • Excellent boat and owner. Came with everything we needed for a day on the water i uding Emil's inner tube. Emil was even nice enough to let us bring it back empty and let him fill it for us at the gas station.

He spent time with us to make sure we knew what we were doing & was patient & kind. . The boat was comfortable & mechanically sound. We really enjoyed our day & look forward to doing this again.

  • Our experience with Emil was wonderful! He was quick to respond to us whenever we needed to contact him. He brought the boat to us and picked it up from us, which made our trip so much easier. Emil is extremely polite and easy to work with. Should we ever need a boat in his area again, we will for sure rent from him.

  • Emil was on time and had no issues whatsoever. I'll be renting again from Emil soon!

  • We had a fantastic time! The boat is great -- just what we wanted for a day on Lake Washington inner tubing and wake boarding. The boat has plenty of power, handles great and is super fun! Thank you Emil!

  • Emil was amazing!! The day of the rental, we text Emil to see if we could change the times due to rain. He made it happen. We had a family of 4 and the boat fit us great. 6 people on the boat would have been fine also. He gave us a quick overview of the boat and we were off on Lake Washington. If your thinking about renting a boat in the Seattle area, do not worry about Emil, he will take really good care of you. All you have to do is show up. The boat is in great condition and worked like a champ... 5 Plus stars in our eyes.

  • Had a great day boating with friends on Emils boat. He communicated with me whenever I needed information. The boat was presented to us clean and with a full tank. He was also flexible with our needs and made sure we had the best time possible. Definitely a top notch person to rent from. If and when I rent a boat again, it will be from Emil.

    Thanks again sir.

  • Great Boat. Great Experience
    My wife and I took out Emil's boat on Lake Washington for a day. It was a laid back outing for us, catching up and reading on the water. The boat was clean, and more than capable. We didn't take the throttle beyond halfway, so it was much more capable than we needed it to be, in fact. Emil was on time and always very responsive. Highly recommended. We'd take this boat out again.

  • We had a great day with the bayliner. Everything was just perfect and Emil is a wonderful renter: the boat was ready at the lane when we arrived, communication was very fast and easy and Emil is very friendly and helpful. Thanks for this nice experience!

  • I rented Emil's boat for me and my adult kids . There were 5 of us and we had a fantastic time! I am not from Seattle so I needed to rely on Emil's advice as far as a drop off/launch location. His recommendation was perfect. Emil was very accommodating and helpful. Getting us lined out on the boat was super easy. The boat ran great and was perfect for wakeboarding, tubing and just generally hanging out and sightseeing on Lake Washington. I highly recommend Emil and will absolutely rent from him again.

  • Emil was SUPER EASY to work with and was extremely accommodating. Beautifully clean boat! Rode like a Cadillac!

  • Great service. Emil made things very easy for us. We had a great day!

  • Emil was great and the boat as well. Super customer service oriented, and he did everything he could to make it a seemless rental. 5 star in every way!

  • We had an amazing time renting from Emil. He arrived before our arranged meet up time and already had the boat in the water ready to go, and then gave us a quick but informative run-down of his boat and basic rules/safety. The boat itself was very clean and was fast and easy to drive! Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely rent from emil again.

  • Thanks for another great day of boating! Love the boat!

  • We had a fantastic time on Emil's boat! He was super friendly, and super helpful! The boat was very clean, in great shape and ran perfectly! Can't wait to rent from him again!

  • We loved Emil's boat! Emil and his wife were excellent to rent from! The boat was in very good condition. Emil was very responsive. This was our first time renting a boat in Lake Washington. Emil gave us excellent directions and good instruction on using his boat. I would highly recommend Emil and his boat!

  • I can't say enough good about renting Emil's boat. He was very, very responsive to my emails and questions. We rented his boat for two days and he was willing to deliver the boat and worked with us to have it available the next day. The boat was clean and well maintained. We loved the swimming platform on the stern. We used the boat for tubing, wakeboarding and slalom skiing. We had a little trouble pulling up a slalom skier from deep water but after up there was plenty of power to give the skiers a good ride.

    Emil was very pleasant work with. Thanks for a great experience renting your boat.

  • Emil was easy to work with and his boat was great! We had a good experience. I'd highly recommend this owner and boat.

  • Much better than could ever imagine. Emil does not just provide a great boat, but a great service. First off, he'll bring the boat to you within 30 minutes of Everett so you can start from where you want to start. We arrive about 10-15 minutes early so he doesn't have to wait for us (okay, we were anxious). The boat was already in the water! After a quick tour of the boat, we're off to an absolutely amazing day. I text Emil about 80 minutes before we expect to be back and arrived about 10 minutes early. There's Emil on the shore looking for us with his truck/trailer 2nd in line at the launch. We wait a few seconds for them to get in the water and drive the boat right up the trailer; out of the water in no time. Condition of the boat was excellent and after we remove our stuff, Emil gets gas on his way home (so we don't have to pay crazy gas prices on the water), cleans boat inside and out, and it's ready for the next customer. So yeah, not only a clean dependable boat, but amazing service. My family would definitely rent this boat from Emil again. Amazing Day!!! Thank you Emil!!!

  • We had a great time out in the San Juan Islands on Emil's Bayliner. Emil literally went the extra mile for us when we ended up needed a ride back to Seattle. He drove us and saved us from a missed flight.

  • Renting from Emil was enjoyable and easy! He is super nice and the boat was amazing. Literally could not have been better. Made my birthday! Thanks Emil :)

  • Emil was great! Boat was great! We had so much fun and great quality family time. Thanks Emil!

  • We had a really great time. Picked up the boat at the Everett boat launch which was really convenient for us. The boat was there on time and the checkout process was very easy. The boat was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children ages 4, 6, and 9. It was very comfortable for us and the kids thought it was "awesome". The boat was very easy to operate as we cruised up to Langley for a quick lunch stop. Then on up to Penn Cove before heading back towards Edmonds. Emil was very responsive and overall great to work with. We will definitely want to do this again.

  • We had a great time on Emil's boat. He is quick to respond, accommodating, and flexible with scheduling. He made the entire process very smooth and easy. The boat was clean, fast, easy to maneuver, and fit our group of 8 comfortably. Would definitely recommend!

  • As first time boat renters, we were a little nervous, but Emil was fantastic! He delivered the boat right to us at Big Lake, was super accommodating of our schedule, and the hand off was excellent. Emil is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. His instructions were clear and thorough and he made sure we had everything we needed - life jackets, gas tank for refills, and he even lent us a tow rope for our tube (he's got a plethora of useful boating equipment in the back of his truck that he's happy to share). The boat itself was excellent - the perfect size for our 8 person party, zippy and handled really well. We will definitely call on Emil again the next time we need to rent a boat. A+++

  • Emil made this process a breeze. We had a fabulous time, everything worked out just perfect. We will most definitely rent from Emil again. Thank you again for helping us have such a great day out on the water.

  • Emil was the most fantastic host I've ever had on Boat Bound. He communicated well, was early and actually had the boat in the water for us already. He was flexible with scheduling, meeting place, and had everything ready and pointed out for us on the boat to make it a quick efficient hand off. The boat itself was well laid out and our whole party commented how well it was laid out for fun in the sun, so we can't thank enough.

  • Owner is responsive, accommodating and easy to work with. Boat is in good repair, powerful and a good handle. Makes 35-38 knots throughout the Sound in fair seas. Comfortably seats 5 for travelling, or 6-8 for touring and trollino. Great rental experience.

  • Perfect day boat. We had a blast cruising around Lake Union and Lake Washington. Emil was quick to respond and set up all the details the boat arrived on time and picked up as scheduled. I will be doing this again.

  • We rented Emil's boat and had a great time! He was prompt and we were underway in no time. He even brought a tube and tubing life jackets for us and the boat had a bimini top. So fun! The boat was clean, handled well, and fun!

  • Emil was amazing! He was very responsive and easy to book! He was early and had the boat in the water waiting for us. He carefully took time to explain everything to make sure we had a great experience. The boat was in top-notch condition. I hope to use Emils boat again!!

  • Emil was awesome, he made pick up and drop off super simple and easy. Our family had the best day on the water in years! Can't wait til next time!

  • Emil was absolutely outstanding to rent from. He was very accommodating, especially if the weather turned. He was a quick phone call away if we wanted to come in early (Which we didnt), or if weather was bad. The boat was in great condition and was a blast to drive. It was very fast in open water and was great for a cruise around lake Washington and lake union. I would definitely recommend him and his boat. I hope to rent again in the future!

  • Wow, just...wow! Emil is super friendly, helped us with an easy load-in and load-out at Magnusson. Boat is clean, fast, fun and fuel-efficient. We had a great day, he was great, boat was great for our party of 6.

  • Good time with the boat on Lake Sammamish. Emil delivered it to us and we kept it for 3 days exploring the lake, tubing and boarding. Will use again when I am back down that way.

  • Emil was great. He was on time as scheduled, very helpful, and we loved the boat. It was clean, ran well, and so ready to go. I would definitely rent from him again.

  • Had a great time on a great boat. Emil was kind and courteous and we really enjoyed our boating experience. We will definitely rent from him again.

  • Emil and his boat are great! He was always very quick to respond, helpful and accommodating, and the boat ran well. Would definitely rent from again!

  • What a great experience! This was my first time doing this and Emil was awesome, totally put us at ease and didn't smother us with rules and such. Thanks Emil! We'll definitely be back!

  • Emil was great to work with. He answered messages right away, was at delivery and pickup for the boat when he said he would be, the boat held the capacity stated comfortably, and was very clean and accommodating (he let us borrow a cooler as well). Me and my friends had a great time would definitely recommend Email as a person to work with.

  • Emil was incredibly friendly and helpful and informative-being very understanding when we asked to change the rental date because of bad weather. He met us at a convenient location and was very accommodating with everything we needed. The boat was pretty great too, definitely fast when you needed it to be but also not something I would suggest for those that are looking to take it on choppy weather or tough waters. All in all great experience!

  • I highly recommend Emil and his boat. He was early and had the boat on the water and ready to roll. He even provided extra gear when I forgot to bring mine. He is very knowledgeable and professional. The boat is well maintained and handles great even on the sound. Plenty of room for our family of four.

  • We rented Emil's boat for my birthday and had a BLAST! Emil is extremely professional, informative and amenable. The boat is kept up very well and is clean, fun and comfortable. We even had a minor hiccup along the way and he was great in helping us resolve it. I highly recommend renting from Emil and have a great time!

  • Emil was the perfect Captain for our voyage. I booked his boat and his time to be part of a TV promo shoot I was helping to produce.

    In production, details and logistics can be a bit of a challenge and Emil was AMAZING with very accommodating with our requests. He was also very responsive and helpful for any questions I had. He was on-time and willing to go the extra mile for our crew. I would absolutely book him again.

    I highly recommend him for your next boat voyage.


  • Emil was so great!

    He arrived early and had the boat in the water when we rolled up. He brought extra vests and gave men the full orientation to the boat.

    The boat drives really, really well. It's super clean and a very smooth ride. We topped out at around 35 knots with 4 on board - plenty fast for to run the length of lake Washington in under an hour or pull a skier when the weather is nice.

    Emil was very competitive on price (especially given how new the boat is) and responses were nearly immediate.

    I just hope he gives preference to repeat renters!

  • Emil's Bayliner was top notch. The boat was brand new. It really had everything that we needed for the day. Emil was more than accommodating and was very knowledgeable when explaining the operation of his boat. I would definitely rent from Emil again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a great day on the water!
