This 26 foot Sea Ray Sundeck bowrider is a perfect boat for a day on the lake. It is equipped with a great Bluetooth sound system, bathroom (YES this boat has a bathroom compartment!), cooler, sink, shower, and huge lounge seating in the front. There is a large swim platform on the back of the boat which makes getting in and out of the water a breeze! The boat has an anchor for hanging out in the playpen. Experienced boaters can drive this boat themselves ($150 pre-departure orientation/check out required for first self driving rental with us), or you can hire a captain to take you out on the water. Booking rates do not include Captain, fuel or cleaning fees. We recommend no more than 8 passengers on this boat. If you want to hire a captain you should budget $75 per hour plus gratuity. Fuel cost is estimated at $150 for a typical 4-hour itinerary. If you want to drive this boat yourself you will need to provide a boating license or have significant experience operating a similar boat. If you don't have enough experience you can hire a captain. A member of our staff will conduct an orientation with you to make sure you are comfortable with the unique features of this Sea Ray. Captain service is not included in the bareboat rental rate. US Coast Guard regulations require that any Captain/Crew is your employee and that you will pay them directly. You can budget around $75/hour for a Captain (plus gratuity). After you rent the boat we will provide you with a contact list of captains who are familiar with the boat, but you are not restricted to just the captains on that list. This boat has a commercial insurance policy with a bareboat charter endorsement which, via the bareboat charter agreement, adds the charterer as a named insured. You may also decide to purchase additional insurance if you would like. Any DRIVER of the boat must have at least 2 years of experience operating similar sized boats (within 10 feet length), must not have any criminal convictions or please of no contest, and must not have any marine insurance losses/claims in the last 10 years, and no license suspensions/violations (including auto) in the last 5 years. Please do not plan on driving this boat if any of these apply to you, as the insurance coverage could be voided. 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.

We had 8 people and we fit perfectly, we had so much fun this boat is great for the river and playpen
Professional service and a really excellent time had by all!!
This was a great boat to take us out on the playpen! We also had a great time with our captain, Dan! He was the best and if you need a captain for your charter ask Chris for him from the list!
Chris was an amazing host. We booked his boat last minute and he helped me find a captain on short notice. The boat was clean and very fun. Would recommend Chris’ boat to anyone!
Highly recommend renting this boat or a boat from Chris. The crew was accommodating and easy to work with. The boat was beautiful and perfect for our group of 6. We were able to celebrate a birthday and engagement with the Chicago skyline as our backdrop. Perfect for seeing the river and enjoying all Chicago has to offer. The weather was iffy the day we rented, and Chris was accommodating and provided multiple updates throughout the day to get us on the water. We felt safe and reassured that the team was on top of it! I would also recommend hiring Captain Dan from their list of captains. He was awesome. Provided a safe and fun journey for us!
You’ll get directions to the departure location when you make a booking.

All prices listed are for the boat rental only, you must hire a US Coast Guard licensed captain to pilot the boat. We can recommend several captains that are familiar with the operation of this particular vessel, and you will pay the captain directly. You are not limited to only the captains on the list, you are able to hire a different USCG licensed captain. You should budget $75 per hour for captain service, plus gratuity. Fuel is paid by the renter based on consumption, which can vary widely depending on your chosen itinerary. For a typical trip up the Chicago coastline to the playpen anchorage and back your fuel reimbursement will not be more than $150.00 total. If you want to do a river cruise the fuel will be significantly more.
