Take a leisurely cruise on one of Chicago's most requested and highly sought-after vessels known to cruise beautiful Lake Michigan onboard "Boat Bay,” as this Yacht is affectionately named because of her remarkable size, comfortability and beauty. Notably, this Sea Ray 370 SunDancer Yacht has expansive single-level interior cabin and cockpit with wide, roomy, spacious, helm-side lounge seating, and a sun pad on the bow for several guests to enjoy. All of the boats in our fleet are professionally (white gloved cleaned) after each charter. Boat Bay is equipped with a full bathroom, kitchen size galley, refrigerator, microwave, coolers, fire extinguishers, first aid kit and other safety equipment, as well as USCG Type-1 life vests for all passengers. Has a bumping audio sound system that is Bluetooth compatible. This yacht is perfect for a group of up to 12 guests (with no more than 12 by Coast Guard regulations). For groups larger than 12 passengers, we suggest consider renting a matching size yacht, or power boat in our fleet of four boats to fit your desired guest capacity beyond 12 for simultaneous bookings, where you can ride out to your seaside destination in tandem, side by side, boat by boat for Fun Fun Fun! 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 rented from Cheryl this past weekend, for my birthday nonetheless, and genuinely had the most miserable experience. Renting a boat is supposed to be fun and she made it into a logistical nightmare. She was rude, disorganized (would not give me details on the location of the boat at the harbor and caused us to get on 20 minutes late), asked for payment on unapproved platforms, made false promises, went back on her word on more than one occasion, and justified all of that mistreatment under the umbrella statement “that is how I choose to run my business.” Truthfully, I was so disturbed that she would treat a customer the way she treated me that I had trouble enjoying the charter at all. After calling her out on her lies, she threatened to “give the charter away to someone else” 24 hours before and not refund me, so I felt completely forced into it given the FORTUNE I had already spent. Save yourself the stress and rent from absolutely anyone else.
I am excited to be a part of the GetMyBoat movement in making boats more accessible, and readily available, hoping to add value to people's lives. I have a passion for boat life, as has been demonstrated by my 18 years of being out on Lake Michigan waters, (summer after summer). I am a people person that's pretty ambitious, resourceful, goal-oriented, adventurous, fair and fun loving. I seem to take on careers that make people happy, because making people happy makes me happy. That said, I would love it if you would choose to cruise on a boat from my fleet at the Chez Renee Voyage 31st Street Dock enclave someday.

CRUISING START TIMES: Daytime (10am); Afternoon (3pm); and Evening (8pm) (for fireworks display) (Give or take 1 hour outside the times listed here) CAPTAIN STRUCTURE: Ours is a BARE BOAT RENTAL COMPANY ONLY, called "Chez Renee Voyage" where Captains are not included in our company's quoted prices listed herein. The Captains' fees are a separate transaction between renter and captain (this is a US Coast Guard Law), where you will hire the captain and pay them directly. You are welcome to hire your own licensed captain (with owner approval), or you may hire a captain who is familiar with our boats from a list we shall provide you upon reservation completion. Captains typically charge anywhere from $85-$100 per hour, with customary gratuity, so budget for that cost separately from the boat rental fee.
