How long is a typical rental period?

Boat owners will offer half-day rates, full-day rates, or multi-day rates which are defined by the amount of time you would spend out on the water. The amount of time for each rate varies amongst owners and it is best to inquire about the particular boat you'd like to rent for an accurate rate. Most owners offer rates as follows:

  • Half-Day Rental (up to 4 hours)
  • Full-Day Rental (up to 8 hours)
  • Multi-Day Rental (24 hours +)

The exact duration and time of departure and return is up to the renter and owner to determine. For single day bareboat rentals, the vessel must be returned by sundown to be covered by Boatsetter Insurance. For multi-day rentals, the vessel must be moored or docked in a safe location from sunset to sunrise.
