Aboard since 2015
From Arlington, VA
Renting a boat from Brent was a breeze! From the start he was very responsive and helpful to all our questions/requests. The 16' Bayliner was already in the water, fully fueled and very clean upon our arrival. Brent was also very accommodating to our last-minute time changes and was very flexible on our return time. I really enjoyed the entire experience and will certainly rent from Brent again.
Brent was absolutely great! He arrived and had the boat in the water ready to go within minutes. He gave me a run down of the boat, some suggestions on where to go, and we were off. Drop off was just as easy, I gave him a call about 30 min prior to getting back to the dock and he was there ready. I was a wonderful birthday for my wife. She enjoyed it very much we will be renting from Brent again. Going out on The Anchorman is great way to spend the day. Will be renting from Brent again.
We rented Brent's boat for my birthday. We met Brent at Gravelly Park boat launch and he made everything quick and easy. We were out on the water in no time at all. Our group was 4 women and the boat was very easy to handle. The boat goes kind of slow but there are so many no wake zones that it wasn't an issue for us. We went up to Georgetown and anchored and swam for a while and then went back south and past downtown and out by RFK stadium looking at all of the sights. The last thing we did was just hang out under the flight path of DCA and watched all of the jets fly right over head while the sun set. Brent met us at the dock and we were off in a matter of minutes. What we loved most was how nice Brent was and that he actually showed up when he said he would. He was very dependable and easy going. Thanks Brent, we'll be back.
I would highly recommend renting from Brent. I took my boyfriend out boating with some friends as a surprise birthday experience and we had such a great time. Not only was it a perfect day to be out on the Waterfront, but Brent was incredibly easy to work with and very informative. It was my first time "captaining" a boat, but I felt pretty confident going out in the water with Brent's instructional info session. Thanks again Brent!!
Thank you, Brent, for helping to make my niece's birthday so memorable. We had an amazing day on the boat thanks to you. Your attention to detail making sure I understood all the ins-and-outs was a great help. I also appreciate all the tips on places to go and things to see along the Potomac river. Thanks again. See you soon!
Our Boatbound experience with Brent was great. We ( wife and 2 sons ) could not have asked for a better first time experience. Brent is very responsive and very accommodating. Brent's 16 ft Bayliner is perfect for an afternoon on the river and is easy to handle and operate. I would definitely recommend Brent and we intend on using Brent again very soon.
What an amazing way to see Washington DC. Brent's boat was perfect for our family and we had such a great time. I was a little concerned about 60hp but we were able to cover a lot of ground from Mount Vernon to Georgetown. Brent was also amazing. He had the boat waiting for us when we arrived and was an all-around great host. If you have never experienced DC by boat, I highly recommend this experience. (Beware that there are more no-wake zones than I expected, but that is not Brent's fault. Still faster than the DC traffic.)
Having met Brent and rented his boat, it is easy to understand why he has received such glowing reviews. Brent was more than accommodating and helpful. He is patient, friendly and considerate. The boat is perfect for a day on the Potomac. We had a great afternoon and could not have asked for a better experience.
Brent was at the marina early and had the boat ready when we got there. He is very friendly and personable. We got a quick tour of the boat and all its features as well as some good suggestions on where to go on our day out on the water. The boat was very easy to drive, clean, and even had a stereo with an aux cable to connect a smartphone or MP3 player for music. We had a great time and would definitely work with Brent again in the future!
My fiancé and I spent a whole day out on Brent's boat cruising the Potomac. The boat is simple, easy to navigate and fun, a perfect recipe for a wonderful time. Getting started was informative and returning the boat was quick and easy. Highly recommended and will be renting again.
We took out Brent's boat for the 4th of July and had a great time. Brent could not have made the experience any easier. We met him at the dock (boat was already in the water). In less than five mins, we were off. The boat ran well and was perfect for a lazy day on the Potomac. We had the boat for nearly 10 hours and had no problems. Easy drop-off at the end of the day. Overall, a great rental - highly recommend to anyone looking to for maximum ease getting out on the water.
Brent did it again! This time I reached out on short notice to request his boat for a sunset cruise of the DC monuments with my wife and in-laws. Even though Brent had a prior booking that same day, we was more than happy to book with me again -- and we had an evening we'll never forget. Perhaps we'll do it again this Friday night?!
Renting with Brent was as easy as can be -- he was incredibly responsive throughout the process and just seems like a really great guy. His boat was super simple to operate. My wife and I plan to rent her again asap! We took her out to just north of Mt. Vernon for a half day, where we anchored, lunched, and briefly swam...can't think of a better use of 4 hours on a cool DC Sunday in June.
Brent is an extremely responsive "boatbounder". Not only was he extremely accommodating to my families scheduling needs, but he even took the time to leave work and personally introduce himself. Brent's boat is perfect for an outing on the water whether you've been boating for years or it's your very fist time. I certainly cannot wait to get back out on the water and I would recommend Brent to all.
Wow, boating with Brent was great!!! We went out for an afternoon cruise. I called him to let him know I was able to come down earlier than our scheduled time and he accommodated me with no problem. He came down, showed me the basics of boat and location of equipment. After that, we were on our way. His boat is simple to operate and the river was great. I called him to let him know approximately what time I was coming back to the dock. Brent was there when I arrived and we squared away the boat. I was very impressed with him and his craft. I've already booked the boat for another day. Brent, you are awesome!!!
Awesome experience.. I am not just a first time boat renter but also a first time boat driver... Brent made the whole experience wonderful... He is super responsive to messages... I was a little nervous driving a boat, he gave me the crash course and guided me in best places to visit around Potomac... The boat was perfect for our family of four with two kids (7 and 5 yrs) and we had a blast.. Already planning for our next rental with Brent and recommended him to friends..
Brent was very responsive and flexible about pick up and drop off times. He did a great job preparing us for the day on the water. The boat is very clean and well maintained. I will definitely plan on renting from Brent again. Thanks agin for an awesome day!
We really enjoyed renting with Brent. We could not have asked for more from our first Boatbound experience. We set up the rental on short notice and Brent was very flexible when we had to change the time. When we arrived, everything was ready to go and we were on our way within a few minutes (I should mention we are previous boat owners). We spent an awesome afternoon on the water first heading to My. Vernon for lunch and swimming and the back past the monuments into Georgetown. What a great way to experience DC even if you've lived here your whole life. The Bayliner was immaculate and ran perfectly. Brent could not have been more accommodating and easy to work with on all fronts. We will definitely rent again! And I hope our next Boatbound owner is as great as he was!
