Experience fascinating journeys onboard our luxury motor launch! Book the Chris Craft Launch 25 power launch for up to 9 people. Minimum of 4 hours rental. Qualified captains with credentials only or commission a skipper for your extraordinary day out on Lake Tahoe, please.

It features unique silver paintwork with an all-white interior to match. Endearingly known as "Barco Del Amor" or the Love Boat, this luxury launch is an extension of our retreat property called Hacienda de Leyenda in Truckee, CA and Woodstock, NY. The Chris Craft 25 Launch is ideal for a half or full day out on Lake Tahoe. Plug into the onboard music system through Bluetooth and play your favorite playlist while enjoying the best lake in the US. The boat has its own cooler and a drinks fridge for additional storage. There is ample room as its a bow rider and can comfortably hold 6-8 guests and is legal to carry 9 guests. The teak swim platform provide excellent opportunity for guests to have a swim in the lake or in a private cove along the foreshore and easily climb back on board via the drop down three step ladder to the rear. If rented with one of our captains aboard, they have very good knowledge of the best local spots around the lake and can take you to the hidden bays and coves not available by foot typically. Barco Del Amor is also fitted with a Garmin fish finder which makes fishing that much easier if that's one of your interests for your day out on the lake. If you are booking a full day, ask your captain about some great eating options around the lake or remember to pack your own picnic. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay. Just hit, “Request to Book” and send us an inquiry for a custom offer!!
I am an entrepreneur, traveler, thrill seeker who truly believes in a work and play balance. Alongside my loving wife, Liz, we are creating a series of private retreats called Hacienda de Leyenda which we believe will become sacred spaces for communion and tribal gatherings. Our first retreat was created near Woodstock, NY, and recently we bought a retreat space near Truckee, CA, which we live on and are expanding. Being out on the water personally energises me and I love for nothing more than to swim, wakeboard and take in the beauty and awe of Lake Tahoe. Our boat, Barco del Amor allows us to do this in one the best lakes in the world.
Boat was everything as described - is in great condition, runs well and made for a fantastic day on the lake - highly recommend and do it again! Thank you Gary
Beautiful boat and great captain! Would def book again on our next trip to Tahoe.
Very good experience. The boat was exceptionally clean and well taken care of. Communication was great and all questions were promptly answered. We rented for the day and the process was painless...boat was ready right on time and there were no surprises. The boat ran beautifully and was well equipped with life vests and water toys. Would definitely work with Gary again and rent this boat!
Lake Tahoe is a uniquely wonderful lake. To truly enjoy Lake Tahoe, one also needs a boat to match the lake. Gary’s Chris Craft is one of the few boats that will add to your overall experience. Nothing better than a great day on an awesome lake with a superb boat. We are already planning on renting again and coming back - to bad I can’t give more than 5 Stars.
Gary was fantastic to work with, and did a great job coordinating with our group. I would highly recommend and hope to rent from Gary again in the future.
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.
Full refund up to 7 days prior.
Our Chris Craft Launch 25 is heavily demanded by our guests staying at the Hacienda de Leyenda retreat throughout the summer period. Currently, we are accepting discerning guests and no more than one booking in any week period. The rental fee and deposit need to be paid on approval of the booking. A 100% refund is available up to 7 days prior to the charter day if you need to cancel for any reason. The deposit will be released when the captain completes the charter and notifies the owner that everything is in good order and there is nothing to have to replace or repair. If the boat is rented without captain, the deposit will be released after a thorough inspection by the marina staff. Please note. The rental fee is for the charter of the boat only. Our Captains know Lake Tahoe intimately and can show guests the hidden bays and coves. They can also teach wake boarding to groups too. The rate for the captain is $70 p/hour which we pay to the marina. If you have a wonderful time aboard Barco del Amor, please be gracious and reward the Captain with a tip for a memorable experience on Lake Tahoe. A separate fee will be deducted for the fuel usage and will be charged ahead of the rental. Fuel fees are $140 per half day (4 hours) and $250 for a full day rental. We operate Barco del Amor between 9am and 5pm daily. Our boat is dry stored and has to be back at Sunnyside Marina at or before 5pm each day. Rental term rules : 1) Rentals without one of our captains have to switch the batteries on for the boat at the beginning of the day (found under the rear seat situated in front of the engine hatch) and MUST switch the batteries off again before departing from the boat once returned to the marina. We have had three batteries that have been damaged by guests not switching off the batteries after their usage. 2) Only very experienced captains can access and will be allowed to rent the boat. This will require evidence of a boat license and extended past experience to avoid potential boat damage and unnecessary wear and tear. 3) We advise all renters to use the Garmin onboard to assist with navigation and to easily determine the water depth around the lake foreshore. 4) Please remove all refuse and cans/bottles from the boat. Wipe down seats and leave the boat the way you found it for the next guests that rent it. If the boat is left poorly, a deduction will be made from the security deposit being held of $100 to cover the additional cleaning expenses. 5) Any booking will also require the lodgement of a $2500 security deposit. This will be released 24 hours after a rental assuming there are no issues or damage to the boat. Thank you for your careful consideration.
