Reviews of Russell (12)

  • Renting from Russell was a good experience, boat was in good condition and it was great experience for us.

  • Russell was awesome! He was very prompt and helpful! I would totally recommend him and his boat! If I get back to Amelia Island, I will rent it again! Alesia

  • Russ was great to work with. Enjoyable day on the water.

  • Awesome boat and Russell was great. We went all over the St. Johns from Doctor's Lake to the Shands Bridge north of NAS Jax and only used 24gals of fuel. Kids loved the tubing.

  • Rus did an amazing job being on time. Gave us all a walk through on how stuff works on the boat. The boat is super clean and extra nice. Well taken care of. Will be renting again soon!

  • Hey! Went out on Russell's boat for a full day with a couple of buddies and had a blast. The boat is in great condition and has everything you need a day of fishing. Russel was nice enough to tow the boat to the launch and pick it up for us, too. He was prompt and very informative. GPS and fish finder worked great. All around a great time and would recommend renting out Russell's boat. I will definitely be doing it again here in the near future. Thank you, Russel!

  • Wonderful experience renting from Russell. The boat was very stable, and we took it out in 15-20 knot winds in search of pelagic fish, and it handles the seas like a champ. Russell was able to launch the boat for us extremely early in the morning, which was a great service, since I don't live in the area, and I like getting started fishing before sunrise. Lots of rod holders, sensitive sonar with great GPS. There was a slight hiccup with the engines stalling from time to time, but it restarted without any hesitation, and Russell said it would be serviced shortly after our rental. Twin engines did eat fuel a little more than a single engine, but it was nice to have the added safety of the double engines since we ran some ways offshore in search of fish. Lots of room for gear, rods, and coolers. Will definitely be renting from Russell again when I get a chance!

  • Russell was great! He was ready for us when we agreed to launch, helped us with a on-board cooler for our lunch and drinks, and the boat was in good order and ran great. Looking forward to another fishing day on the Sea Chaser.

  • Russell was very accommodating and responded promptly to every question I had. He really took the time to make the process run very smoothly. The boat was very clean and ran like a champ. What you see in his pictures is what you get. He will be my first choice from now on when using BoatBound.

  • Russell was as helpful and responsive as they come. I do have a boating background so the dual engines didn't intimidate me. The boat itself is rock-solid. It was blowing at 15kts and we had no problem cruising through the chop. Extremely safe, durable, and comfortable boat. Feels much larger than a 24. I'd highly recommend renting from Russell.

    Russell has rented from us on two different occasions. Russell has experience driving and towing/launching vessels. He was prompt when returning and a great communicator.
    We would definitely rent to Russell again.

    Russell was a great communicator with us during the rental period. He was very concerned about taking good care of the boat and was careful to let us know when any issues arose. Our boat was returned in fine condition.
