Aboard since 2015
From Cape Coral, FL
Great experience, costly but worth it!
Volker delivered the boat to us. The boat was clean and in like new condition. We are experienced boaters but he still gave us a quick and thorough how to, he was not in a hurry and took his time with us. It was our first time to rent from Boatsetter and Volker. I highly recommend renting from Volker and Boatsetter. We could have saved a few hundred for the week by renting from a large marina but we would not have gotten the quality of boat we got from Volker nor the personal service needless to say we are satisfied and will be repeat customers.
Volker and the Chaparral 250 Suncoast were great. Volker was flexible and was very accommodating to what I was looking for. would definately rent from him again. Thanks !!
We were new to town looking at houses met the owner at the boat when he told us the water levels and the risk of damaging his boat we decided not to rent and he still charged me full price. Never even seen the boat up close. Led us to believe there would be no issues after he tore up the contract right in front of us. Untrustworthy
Volker was very professional in his rental process. He had everything all set and ready for us when we arrived. The boat was clean and easy to operate. Very roomy!
Highly recommend! Very accommodating and boat was in excellent shape. We will definitely use him again.
Our rental was a very positive experience. Volker was informative about the craft, very warm and friendly.
The boat was as advertised and in beautiful condition. We will definitely use him again when we are in that area.
Volker was easy to work with and had everything prepared for my arrival/pickup. Volker was also resourceful for local navigational pointers while also providing paper maps along with the on-board touchscreen Garmin GPS.
As advertised the boat was fully equipped with VHF radio and GPS but also had fresh water tank filled and of course gas tanks full ready for use. The Sea Ray 270 provided a smooth and spacious ride fitting 8 with plenty of space to stretch your legs.
The area around Fort Myers is beautiful. We scouted enough waypoints to enjoy the boat much longer and saw several dolphins jumping and birds diving. No better way to see southwest Florida than by boat!
Excellent boat, well maintained, great areas to explore, and most importantly an owner that cares about his vessel and the people that get to enjoy renting his boat. I've owned boats for 23 years and would highly recommend renting from Volker.
Volker was great and had a lot of local knowledge which he shared with us before we left.
The boat was in good shape and ran great.
Another wonderful time on a great boat in a great location! The boat was perfect as always. This was our second time using Volker's Sea Ray 270 Sundeck OB and it did not disappoint again. The boat was still in pristine condition and is well equipped for a beautiful day on the water. Thanks again for adding to our vacation. Harold
Volker's boat was wonderful. Very nicely outfitted and maintained. Very organized as far as how to take advantage for a great day of boating. Excellent layout for people to maximize relaxation and cruising. We look forward to renting again in the future.
Great boat! Great owner! Great experience! Rented for 4 days in July - the boat was perfect for our group of 7. Had to get it down to Naples and back and it handled the light chop on the gulf well. GPS is fantastic and the owner left the route markings from previous renters on the charts which made getting out to the river and gulf worry free. Tops out at 44 MPH with 3 people on board and hit 40 loaded with 7. Trim tabs keep the boat level regardless of where people choose to sit. Only downside if you're in Naples (as we were) is the 2+ hours each way it takes to get the boat down there and back - 1 hour in the river and 1 hour in the gulf. If you're staying up by Cape Coral, Ft. Meyers, Ft. Meyers Beach, Sanibel, or Captiva it really can't be beat. Highly recommended.
Very nice and new boat and a nice day with the family on the sea. We recommend !
What a great boat!! The entire experience was terrific. Dealing with Volker was very easy. He was a pleasure to talk to and responded to my email inquiries very quickly. On the day of the rental, the boat was everything I expected it to be. The photos do not do the boat justice. She is very clean and practically brand new. All of the systems worked as advertised and she was a joy to drive.
I will be renting this boat again for my trip next year!!
Our family rent this boat for two days for celebrate two birthdays.
We had a great time and we really enjoyed this boat.
If you plan to visit Cape Coral - I highly recommend to rent this boat from Volker.
Great guy. Great boat. Made our trip very easy. Thanks!
Great boat.,,it's showroom new and very practical for a day on the water! Best value in the area and Volker is very easy to deal with!
I can't say enough great things about Volker and his Sea Ray! He was incredibly responsive and accommodating the entire time through the booking process. Once we arrived, he made us feel so welcome and showed incredible hospitality. (even offered to unpack our cooler and place it in the boat's) Volker took us through everything we needed to know about his boat and the open waters. The GPS is INCREDIBLE! It truly allows you to be a very knowledgeable captain and takes away any doubt of finding your way back home. The Sea Ray was amazing out on the open water and handled like a dream even in the deepest of waves. The boat is even more gorgeous and comfortable then the pictures can do justice. I truly can't wait to rent from Volker the next time we are down in Southwest FL again. Thank you so much, Volker for an amazing day on the water!!
Had a fantastic time on the water. The boat is absolutely gorgeous and it handled perfectly. Volker was very helpful and professional. The GPS on the boat was helpful for us out of towners. We were able to see some wildlife and doc the boat for lunch. If we're back in the area, we will definitely rent again!
This was a great boat, very stable, the 27 is a good length for a long day trips, spacious for guests. Volker (owner) was very nice to work with and enjoyed sharing the boat with our family. We're looking forward to renting it again when we're back next year.
Volker was kind enough to grant a last minute rental for my family. We had a blast exploring the islands for the day. The boat is even more beautiful than in the pictures. Extremely clean and well taken care of. I would highly recommend it.
Volker was great! The boat was fantastic and we had an awesome day! Definitely would rent from him again.
Exceeded expectations. Beautiful boat. Well worth the money spent.
