Reviews of Benjamin (32)

  • We had a great day on the water. It was a beautiful boat. My family really enjoyed wakeboarding as well.

  • Ben was awesome! This was such a great experience, he was there to tell us what we needed to know and then left us be. As a local, it was nice to have someone to explain the details but not be over barring. 10/10!!!

  • We had an awesome time on Ben’s boat! He was super easy to communicate with, very accommodating and we had a great experience. We would highly recommend

  • Ben was great. Brought the boat too us and walked me through the whole thing. Gave me some ideas in where to go, helped set a location, and checked in on us to make sure we were all set.

  • First time using Boatsetter and Ben couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating! Perfect boat to take out cruising around the intracoastal and plenty of room for me and my 8 other friends that joined. Ben was punctual about picking up/dropping off the boat and extremely quick to respond to messages. Would highly recommend!

  • Awesome boat just as advertised! We had a blast cruising down the ICW and he was super fast to respond and was on time for delivery and return. If I could give more than 5 stars I would! Thanks Ben!

  • Ben was 100. He is everything you want in a renter. Communicative, trustworthy, accommodating and cordial. And the boat was EXACTLY what we were looking for. Little travel, little play, little anchoring up. Perfect. The whole experience was perfect....even with a hurricane. Thx Ben

  • We had the absolute best time out on the water yesterday. Ben was incredibly helpful and and accommodating.

    We decided to extend our time and Ben was more than happy to let us keep the boat longer since he didn’t have any other renters. We had an amazing time and are already talking about when we will come back and to rent this boat again!

    Great experience and absolutely recommend Ben’s boat to others!

  • Ben and his boat were awesome. Will do it again soon.

    Thanks, Ben

  • Awesome boat! Excellent communication with Benjamin! We had 13 people in the boat and it was plenty powerful enough to pull a tube with two adult riders. Will certainly rent again when we are back in the area!

  • Ben was punctual and quick at communicating. Boat was great.

  • Ben was great and easy to work with through my first experience with Boatsetter. He was flexible, responsive, and reliable. The boat was waiting for us when we arrived, and he was waiting for us with the trailer when we ended our day. Couldn’t have asked for a better boat day, and we can’t wait to use Ben on our next adventure in the future!

  • Excellent experience all the way around. Ben was on time and showed us everything we needed to know. The boat was in great condition. He gave us some local suggestions and was always in communication with us. Would definitely rent again from him.

  • Ben is so nice and accommodating! His boat was perfect for the day. Lots of storage space and room to sit comfortably with 7 adults. We will be renting again.

  • Benjamin was great to work with. Very flexible and concerned that we had everything we needed. I will definitely rent a boat again from Benjamin! It’s the only way to experience WB!!

  • Benjamin was great very quick with response and the boat was great. We tried to get one of his other boats but it was not available, but he quickly responded with the Carolina skiff with a150 Yamaha. It was great we fished for 2 Solid days. The boat easily sits 8 adults. I would highly recommend renting any boat from Benjamin. We will he calling g him next year.

  • We had an awesome time out on the water with this boat! Great for families and friends alike. We fished, swam, and explored. Benjamin was awesome to work with as well and is a super nice guy!

  • What a great first time experience and will definately rent from Benjamin again!! Super responsive and very helpful. Boat was well maintained and a perfect fit for 8 people, could have handled more. Launch and pick up service was a bonus, made the day effortless. Just show up and have a great day on the water. Thank you Benjamin, will recommend to all!

  • Renting from Ben was an awesome effortless experience. I scheduled last minute the night prior and that was no problem at all, he was flexible with times and the boat was in the water exactly when he said it would be. I’m looking forward to renting from him again in the future.

  • Great boat easy owner to work with. I will rent again

  • Great time was had by our family on Benjamin ‘s Carolina Skiff!
    Smooth start(on time at launch), comfortable seating, smooth pick up.

    All as good as could be expected.
    Our third rental with Benjamin and all 10 on a ten point scale.

  • Benjamin was top notch! We really enjoyed our expedition and will definitely be doing this again asap!

  • Ben was very friendly and accommodating. The boat was in great shape and was perfect for our group of 9 people. If thinking about getting one, go for it, was worth it and made the day a lot of fun.

  • Absolutely fantastic boat! Bluetooth sound system, and very nice germin gps and depth finder. 150hp on a 21’ skiff, drives very smooth if you know how to turn with the wake. Had a great day, Ben is awesome and very accommodating. Brought the boat to me at the Wrightsville Beach ramp, had it in the water and waiting on me. Went over the new gps and all the controls of the boat. Will be renting again from him soon.

  • My best friend from High School came into town from TX to go on a fish trip with me and Ben was SUPER accommodating to our schedule and questionable weather. With forecasted winds and storms rolling in, Ben allowed our schedule to be shifted to maximize our rental and time with the boat!
    Talk about flexibility and courtesy!
    Highly, highly recommend renting from Benjamin, just not when I'm looking to rent from him (LOL!). But seriously, we'll be looking to rent again from Ben for more fun on the water!

  • Great time on the water with Benjamin's Carolina Skiff. Very nice boat. Would definitely recommend and we will rent from Benjamin again. Very accomodating and easy to do business with.

  • My family and I rented Benjamin’s skiff for the Fourth of July and it was an AMAZING experience. Benjamin was easy to work with, flexible with the timelines and very friendly. He was thorough with providing me the necessary information to ensure I knew the ins and outs of operating the boat. We recommend you rent from Benjamin, I know we will in the future.

  • This was the first time renting with Boatsetter and Ben made the experience super easy!!! We had family in town, so to make the most of our time, Ben delivered the boat to the Castle Hayne ramp on the Cape Fear river for a small gas fee of $20. We chose the river due to less boat traffic, smoother water for tubing and wake boarding, and fresher (less salty) water when the kids would wipeout on the water.
    The boat was PERFECT for two families totaling 9 (3 kids around 8-11 years old) and had plenty of room to move about, get shade from the bimini top and stow the tube when we weren't using it.
    There was also plenty of storage under the seats to put towels, snacks, and our lunch.
    The only thing about running the Cape Fear river was, there wasn't a place to refill the boat with gas, so Ben had to do it, then send a follow up charge through boatsetter of $30 (half day worth of boating equaling 3 hours on the engine). Not a problem, but just something to budget for, especially if you're splitting the cost with someone.
    We had a great time though!!! We will definitely be renting from Benjamin again!

  • Ben was awesome to work with and the experience was easily worth 5 stars. I’d highly recommend renting from Ben!

  • Could not have had a better experience. Ben was very responsive and super friendly. He took care of launching the boat before we arrived and picking it up when we were done. The boat is fantastic and basically brand new. It has a depth finder, moving map GPS, sound system with radio, AUX, and Bluetooth inputs and more. The boat was clean and with ample storage for towels, bags, etc. The engine ran great and had plenty of power to really get you moving. I will definitely be looking for this boat again whenever I'm in Wrightsville Beach.

  • Wow is all we can say!!!!! Great service on a short notice, boat was perfect... If you need a boat and want great service this is awesome choice. I will make sure to use Benjamin in the future.
