Experience fascinating journeys onboard our luxury yacht! Book the Chris Craft Launch 25 power yacht for up to 9 people. Rates as low as $225 per hour and minimum booking of 3 hours. Rates: • 3-Hours: $775 • Full Day: $1,200 Damage Deposit: • $2000 What To Expect Onboard: No expense was spared when this Chris Craft Launch 25 was custom built back in 2016. It features the 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. We carry our own brand new wake boarding equipment including a men's and women's performance board, three wetsuits for men and a further three suits for women. We also carry a range of wake boarding vests, boots and the ropes to have an excellent day out on the lake for any age. 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 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. Your captain, Shane, has a 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.

    Gary's boat was beautiful and pristine. Arranging our adventure was easy as pie and our captain, Mike was such a knowledgeable and laid back guide. The pick up and drop off from Sunnyside was extremely convenient too/ Great way to spend the day out on the lake and be worry free!

    This boat was beautiful and was perfect for our group! Gary was very responsive and was able to find us a great captain last minute. Will definitely book again!

    We had a great time on Gary's boat. The boat was spotless and Gary's communication was top notch. The captain felt like a good friend. The kids (and our dog) loved it.

Additional Terms & Information

Our Chris Craft Launch 25 is heavily demanded by our guests staying at the Hacienda de Leyenda retreat throughout the summer period. Book early to avoid disappointment. The rental fee and deposit need to be paid on approval of the booking. A 100% refund is available up to 10 days prior to the charter day if you need to cancel for personal reasons. 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. Please note. The rental fee is for the charter of the boat only. The Captain, Shane, who skippers the boat knows Lake Tahoe intimately and can show guests the hidden bays and coves. He can also teach wakeboarding 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 after the tank has been refilled at the dock of the marina on completion of the charter. We operate Barco del Amor between 9am and 5pm daily. If you want an earlier trip or want to be on the water for sunset, please make this clear in your booking enquiry so we can try to accommodate any specific requests. Thank you for your consideration.
