    4 Yamaha VX Deluxe Waverunners for rent in Lake Norman, NC

    We head to Lake Norman twice a year and everyone knows it is hard to get ski’s during high season which is what makes GetMyBoat great! Renting from Caleb was straight forward and easy. We met our POC at the landing and he dropped the ski right in with us on them. Super easy, they were in fine condition and we enjoyed our afternoon on the lake with them. We’ll definitely rent again!

    2004 Suntracker 21' Pontoon. Includes Captain and Gas, NO HIDDEN FEES!!

    Carson was the BEST boat captain!!! With a bachelorette party on board, he remained professional and friendly throughout the entirety of the trip! I appreciate his patience as we were a few minutes late, but we returned right on time. He took us to some great spots and even took the time to drive us by the brides old home on Lake Norman. I would DEFINITELY recommend him for anyone looking for a fun day on the lake!

    The boat is very spacious and everyone in my party really enjoyed it. This boat is great for big parties and I enjoyed the cooler and storage features it had. The seats were comfortable to sit on and it drove pretty smoothly. I highly recommend this rental.

    Couldn't recommend Jess and her boat more! She was so kind and wanted us all to have the best time. She went above and beyond to show our bachelorette party a great afternoon. Book with her and you won't be disappointed!
