  • We booked from Abed, he was really nice and helpful. We didn't have any problem with anything.

  • Fabulous trip, great boat! Abed is a great host and all went very smoothly. Made sure we were familiar with all the boat features before heading out and was timely on both ends meeting us. Will definitely rent from him again!

  • Both Abed and his boat were great. Thanks!

  • Quick, comfortable, and efficient. We enjoyed another great day on Lake Washington with Abed's new Cobalt. Orderly check in / check out and conveniently located in Bellevue. Thank you again for an awesome Boatsetter experience.

  • Rent.This.Boat.

    Might be a little more expensive, but we’ll worth it as it’s perfect for Lake Washington. Cuts across the water soooo smooth. Abed and his daughter were great to work with, very thorough and really take care of their boats. Will definitely rent again!

  • We had a great experience renting from Abed, he was very responsive and professional and the boat is in great condition. Also provided all the water sports equipment we could ask for.

  • We had a great time on Abed's quick new Cobalt. The sporting equipment supplied is new, high quality, and very easy to deploy. This boat is a lot of fun, very efficient, and easy to maneuver on Lake Washington. We will be seeing Abed and his crew again very soon. Thanks again!

  • We had a great day on Abed's Cobalt CS23, easy access, great location to pick up the boat in Bellevue's marina. Abed's family was professional and a delight to work with. The day will forever be one in the books for our family, and we had so much fun. My husband and family will be looking to reach out to Abed and his family for our next rental for sure!!! Thank you so much!!

  • If you’re looking for top quality with your rental experience Abed is the guy! Meticulously maintained and cared for top quality new boats. We were working on coordinating a day on the water with a couple families, going back and forth with days/times/etc. I’m sure many others would have given up on us with just the booking process. Abed was quick to respond and coordinated immediately as needed. Day on the water was amazing. Abed goes over everything thoroughly to ensure you’re comfortable and ready for the lake. Again, all equipment is top notch, well cared for and everything you need! We’ll definitely be utilizing Abed’s service again!

  • Abed was very accommodating, allowing us to adjust our rental time due to the weather. He gave us a very thorough walk through of the boat which was in great condition. We had a great day on the lake! Would recommend and rent again.

  • Abed is an excellent provider. His communications and customer service were both outstanding. The pre-trip briefing was comprehensive and very professional. Perhaps more importantly, his Cobalt(s) are outstanding. Almost new and very clean. We used one for the whole day on Lake Washington and it ran flawlessly. Tons of power and speed - even with 5 people in the boat. Extremely stylish and comfortable. Cobalts are the best and I would wager that Abed is one of the best owners on Boatsetter! Book with him. You will not be disappointed!

  • Abed was awesome to work with. This was our first time renting a boat and he was extremely helpful, patient when we made mistakes, and really kind. The boat was gorgeous, clean, and brand new. So much fun to use. The best location, easy to get anywhere and the gas station was right there! Over all would 110% rent from Abed again.

  • Abed was a great host, he walked us through every little detail about the boat, and boating in general to make us feel comfortable. He was very knowledgeable in this space and knew exactly what he was doing. The boat itself was amazing, seating 11 of us comfortably. The inner tube was a great way to spend a few hours on the lake. Overall, this was a fun day at the lake thanks to Abed. He will be my go to for future rentals!

  • We had such a great experience. The booking, communication and boat were all top notch. Not to mention that Abed is a really nice guy.

  • Could not have asked for a better day on the water! Abed was very professional and was sure we had everything we needed. The boat was in excellent condition and ran super smooth. He takes excellent care of his boats and it showed! Will definitely be back again to rent from Abed.

  • Abed was very helpful and his boat was great. Easy to work with, and had a great day on the water. Will definitely rent from Abed again.

  • Second time renting from Abed - Phenomenal service yet again! Great communication and easy to operate. Location can't be beat as well.

  • Great experience, clean & fun boat, Abed easy to communicate with.

  • Amazing customer service! The preparation was very impressive and Abed and his team did a marvelous job both on our departure and return! And of course the boat was in great condition.... 5 stars!!

  • Great experience with Abed and the boat. Everything was smooth sailing all the way through. Best experience so far!

  • The boat was clean and spacious as described. Had a great time on the water with friends. Highly recommended and would definitely rent again.

  • Had a great time on this boat. Very clean and well maintained. Easy arrival and departure process. Friendly people too! Would def recommend.

  • Great boat for a day on the lake!!! Easy handling and ample space for 6-8 full size adults. Abed & his family were a pleasure to work with and were flexible when the morning weather was a little grey. Great people to rent from.

  • Great, easy experience! Boat was perfect - check in/check out was a breeze. Definitely recommend!

  • Our family has a great experience with Abed, he and his crew are highly knowledgeable and offered expert guidance to plan our day and stops along the way. His new Cobalt is easy to operate and is offered with everything you need for a fun and relaxing day on Lake Washington. The Sporting equipment was great quality and sized well. Highly recommended.

  • Nice boat and nice people. Good experience. A little expensive though.

  • Abed provided a top-notch experience. It’s a great boat and Abed made us feel at home in it. My family is eager to do this again and we will be sure to rent from Abed.

  • Beautiful, perfectly maintained boat and extraordinarily courteous and professional owner. It was a pleasure renting this boat with my kids and I would love to rent again. Thank you!

  • A great experience renting from Abed. Boat was very clean and easy to use. Filled with gas and had all the things we needed such as an inflatable, tow rope, life jackets, etc. Everything was explained clearly. A very positive experience and definitely would be using him again.

  • Everything about this booking was awesome. Amazing customer service, Abed was very punctual and helpful leading up to the trip. The boat was so cool and we had such a fun time! I would rent from him again and again!

  • Great experience. They were very communicative, relaxed and made everything convenient!

  • So much fun for entertaining out of town guests. Abed made things very easy. We had a ton of fun cruising, tubing, wake boarding and swimming enjoying a summer afternoon.

  • This was one of the best days on the water I’ve ever had. Abed is exceptionally accommodating and friendly. I recommend Abed to everyone (except on the days I want to rent from him)!

  • We took abed's boat for wakeboarding on Lake Washington. The boat was new and awesome as described! Abed and his family are super kind and patient, and made check-in and check-out super easy and smooth. It was a great experience!

  • Abed and his family were great to work with. Communication was timely and clear. The boat was beautiful, new, and in great condition. I would absolutely rent from Abed again.

  • Exceptional service. Abed was very understanding when my children got sick the night before our day on the water. Boat was sweet super clean, well maintained. Musa was thorough upon pick up and drop off of the boat. Great to see the family helping out with this great service.

  • Abed and Musa were incredibly thorough and accommodating in providing boat rental. Everything was as advertised, with the added bonus of being able to customize the experience to include water skis and innertubes. The boat was in great condition and easily fit 10 people, rode like a drip. Having a slip next to the gas station is a really game changer and makes filling up and returning no hassle. We absolutely will be renting again!

  • We had an awesome time on Abed’s boat. was clean and had all the fun water toys for the kids. Check in and check out was easy and professional. We will definitely be renting this boat again in the near future.

  • Great boat, friendly service, excellent communication. Highly recommend!

  • Amazing experience! As a previous boat owner I was a little unsure of what this process would be like, but Abed and his family could not have been better. Fast communication and responses to questions, everything you need to make for an amazing day on the water, clear instructions, awesome boat and a genuine professionalism that you don't see anymore. I highly recommend taking one of their boats out. I know I will be using them again!

  • Outstanding boat and service from owner. Boat is perfect. Like new. Fully equipped. Owner is fantastic. Will do this one again. So easy.

  • We had a great time on Abed's beautiful Cobalt on lake Washington. He was very professional, responsive, and accommodating. Everything I hoped for in our first rental with boatsetter. We will be renting from Abed again very soon. Highly recommended. Thanks so much!

  • Great personality, very kind. He really tries to optimize your time on the water. I highly suggest renting from him.

  • Awesome rental experience, I highly recommend booking with Abed. The boat was in excellent condition and we had a great day on the lake!

  • Had a blast on the water! Abed made it an easy experience to spend a fun, sunny day on the lake. Would definitely rent again in the future.

  • Abed provided an amazing boating experience for us . Honestly we were probably kind of a pain in the neck for him. We left too late from our house to get there and then there was a wreck on the freeway so we were over 20 minutes late . He was very accommodating even extended our time since we got a late start . He has all the water sports equipment that we could’ve wanted . Show us how to use everything and walked us through the basics of the boat . This cobalt is amazing on the water . Cuts through the rough water and you hardly feel anything . Thank you Abed . We will be renting again from you next time .

  • Abed was wonderful in accommodating our group on short notice. We rented his Cobalt and it performed like a charm we were able to wakeboard and tube with a total of 8 passengers on board. Very responsive and thorough. Would absolutely rent from Abed again.

  • Abed was an AMAZING host and his 2018 cobalt wast the best (most powerful, smoothest—running) boat I’ve ever rented through Boatsetter. You can’t beat a docked boat that’s gassed up and ready the moment that you arrive (way easier than trailer rentals).

    I messed up and miscommunicated that I wanted to borrow Abed’s wakeboard. Not only did he follow-up to clarify, he totally went the extra mile to make it work so we could have a great day out.

    I highly recommend Abed and his slick boats. If this one is booked for the time you want. Make sure you search his other listings!

  • My family and some friends went out on Lake Washington and we truly enjoyed it. We used provided water sports equipment and this kids had a blast. I would certainly recommend this boat to all. The set up through Boatsetter was simple and Abed was very accommodating and responsive throughout the entire process. Thank you!!

  • Great time on the water! Abed is super responsive, thorough and a really nice guy to work with. Will certainly be using his cobalt again. I highly recommend working with Abed

  • I never leave reviews, but I will make an exception with Abed. He was really friendly, down to earth, and is willing to share with you what he knows simply if you asked. We had a group of 11 today, we all had a blast with his boat and such a fun time with Abed. Thank you Abed, I wish you the the best of luck in everything you do in life.

  • Can't say enough about the boat and Abed! Abed was thorough, very courteous, and really put us at ease about the whole experience. We actually booked last minute and changed times and he was super cool about it. The Cobalt boat just glides on top of the water--it's awesome. Already looking forward to the next booking!

  • Awesome Experience, Great Boat and Abed was very easy to work with. Definitely coming back for more rentals.

  • The Cobalt CS23 rented from Abed was fantastic and we truly loved our time on the water! This boat has everything you need and more :-) we were celebrating our recent engagement with friends who came visit us from out of town, and showing them around Lake Washington and Lake Union by boat was an idea everyone loved. The boat is spacious, we were a group of 8 and all sat very comfortably. Abed was kind to provide us with tubes and also had water skis available. It was a memorable Sunday and we will definitely rent from Abed again. :-)

  • Rented on an awesome Sunday in Seattle - boat was all it was advertised to be (24ft 2018 Cobalt), immaculate and well maintained. Abed was great in communication and greeted us upon arrival and when we returned. Check in-out process was easy through Boatsetter. If your looking for 23ft+(wouldn’t get anything less), you won’t have to look elsewhere. All around A+ experience.

  • This rental experience was exceptional. Abed was incredibly kind and helpful. The process was smooth and easy getting in and out of the water. Do not waste your time looking anywhere else. This is the best rental situation on lake Washington in my opinion. The price is great for how nice the boat is. Will be coming back as often as time permits. Thanks, Amed.

  • Great time, everything was perfect!

  • Abed and the Sea Ray SLX 280 were a phenomenal experience for a group of us celebrating a birthday on Lake Washington. We had friends come in from Taiwan and other states and we were all impressed, comfortable, and had a really great time with Abed as our captain/guide. The boat is very clean with all the important amenities including a very clean working toilet, sound system, and lots of seating choices. The Sea Ray also can reach almost 50 mph on the waters which was thrilling to experience. The boat was absolutely gorgeous! Abed was also very accommodating from the beginning from booking to the day of the trip. His instructions are clear and he offered us very cool insight in to the boat life. We didn't do any water sports (though he offers) but were able to enjoy champagne and whiskey while we cruise up lake washington, lake union, and even anchored at a cove for a bit. We will definitely be back for another day on the lake with Abed!

  • We went out on Abeds boat and it was spectacular. He met us at the boat and was very friendly, the boat was AMAZING. Honestly this boat is LUXURY, very clean, comfortable and brand new, with a small bathroom (greatly appreciated by all aboard), my kids liked the bluetooth connection to the sound system. There was plenty of room for our group of 10. There was a problem with the intertube and Abed drove his jet ski out to us with a brand new one! However one of the most enjoyable parts of the trip was Musa (Abed's son) who drove the boat, he was knowledgeable, mature, responsible, accommodating and a great host. We look forward to renting again with Abed and Musa. Highly recommend them to anyone who wants an awesome day on the water.
