      Rent Brand New 2021 Monterey M225 Powerboat in Miami, Florida!- We have TWO IDENTICAL BOATS- See pictures-

      The boat ride was fun and safe, the captain did a great job. He let us listen to our music and vibe out as we explore Miami, he was very informative about the sceneries and he interacted with us. Singing the songs and showing us different places. Best birthday gift ever!

      All-Inclusive 2021 25' Luxury Yamaha 252SE - Super Roomy, MUST SEE!!

      Our Family we would highly recommend Adrian. His boat is very clean and comfortable. He made us feel welcome and was very patient with our kids as we enjoyed tubing and wake boarding. My wife who sometimes gets sea sick had no problems, his boat handled the choppy water smoothly. We will be booking again Adrian!
