Tiara 26 "Under The Weather"

Newly purchased fall of 2016 Under The Weather will be my first boat with a Cabin and it also has a nice all weather canvas enclosure. I am tempted to just make this my boat, as people have said it just super clean well maintained and it is a very yacht like Tiara. This is a perfect fishing boat and I can provide down riggers but not much advise. I catch sea caves and light houses cause I know where they are. This boat has the aft cabin so there are two double births. She is yacht certified but her layout is more for a family or two couples 7 people max recommended. This boat has a Mercruiser 350 i/o and planes off and does about 28 mph. My newest boat she is cosmetically excellent and in great shape, she is a 1984 Tiara.  This boat is not available for overnight liveaboard rentals.  Half Day  $315;  Full Day $445

Cobalt 25' speed boat "Deep Blue"

Deep Blue is my deep V hulled speed boat with a big block engine giving her the power and shape to push through any Lake Superior waves. Cobalt makes a very strong sturdy boat and she shows with grab rails everywhere and just perfect arrangement and seating for a speed boat. She has a nice stereo but only plays CD's. Her legal capacity is 9 people but with power and space to spare I see no problem bringing 9 people of average size and reasonable amount of gear. She has a color hummingbird GPS/Depth sounder, VHF radio and all other required safety gear. This is the boat you should reserve if you are planning to make the case you want to go out on windier or wavier days as this is a genuine Lake Superior boat that was sold new to an islander, then traveled to Duluth for a period of time before I found her and brought her back to La Pointe! This boat is my favorite boat to drive, she was a perfect barn find but her age has seen the rear seat upholstery crack pretty bad, I hope to get it redone this spring, she is s 1994.  Half Day  $315;  Full Day $425

Bayliner Rendezvous 26' Deck Boat "Rendezvous"

The Rendezvous is the original people mover. I have been running this boat as a charter boat for a rather long time. She does show some age from all her use but she makes up for it with power steering, fuel injection, and most of all her Catamaran Hull. As one of my larger boats with the Catamaran Hull she slices through moderate chop really well. If you have a larger group this is my largest people mover with a recommended max capacity of 10 people or 1800 lbs. She has a stereo with audio jack, Color Lowrance GPS/Depth sounder, VHF radio and all other required safety gear.  Owned since new in 1998 it has the newest drive train, but she also has somewhat worn upholstery. If you feel your experience is limited, this boat with her tunnel catamaran hull is the most precise and easy to dock. And I have already redone the rubrail and will have to again this spring. Her size also makes her a stable platform for Lake Superior, I have personally taken this boat out many times in ten to twelve foot waves, not that I would let you go out on those days. But she is a very large and safe boat for the Lake. Full Day  $375;  Half Day  $295

Nimble Speed Boat 21' Regal "SEagull" 

Seagull is a fun addition to the fleet in 2016. A 21' Regal with a Fastrac Hull she is efficient, fast and fun to drive. She has a mercruiser V8 but only a 5.0 liter V8 compared to Deep Blue's 7.4 liter V8 and yet she is much faster on smooth water. The Fastrac Hull I found to be more of a difference maker than I expected. She rides further forward and the weight feels more balanced. Seagull has a superb stereo system with USB, Audio jack, or CD receiver and a Bazooka sub woofer in the back! She has a Garmin GPS, depth sounder is factory on the dashboard, VHF radio and all the other required safety gear. Recommended 7 person max.  Deep Blue maybe is my favorite all around, but Seagull is far more efficient. She also is just a little faster, especially on calm days. This boat also remains very clean and is a newer boat in the fleet and overall. She is a 2001 Regal 21'.  Full Day  $375;  Half Day  $295

Bayliner Rendezvous 21' DEck Boat "Star Cruiser"

Star Cruiser is also known as The Baby Rendezvous, as she is also a Bayliner Rendezvous but the 21 foot model. She has a Yamaha Outboard that was installed new in 2014 and is very smooth and quiet. She has lots of room and seating for 8 people recommended. Her stereo has an audio jack and plays CD's. She comes with a Garmin GPS/Depth sounder, VHF Radio and all the other required safety gear.  A 1998 hull with a 2013 Yamaha, Star Cruiser is very clean boat but part of my first year of rentals she is starting to show some wear.  Full Day  $345;  Half Day  $275

Sea Doo explorer 13' jet boat "jetboatski"

Sea Doo Explorer is a jetboat that rides like a jet ski! This is perfect since jetskis arent allowed in The Apostle Islands. But this is a registered boat and therefore you can take it to Long Island. She does lack a large enough fuel tank to really explore the largeness of Lake Superior. But she is perfectly equipped to travel across the sandbars and shallows to Long Island. Long Island is one of the best beaches in The Apostle Islands and inside Long Island is a locals favorite for swimming with shallow water everywhere. Rental includes 1 tank of gas, but this boat can burn off a whole tank in a little over an hour of hard running so watch the fuel gauge. 4 people or 450 lbs recomended.  $85 an hour.

Aquasport Tourneycat 16' "Obi Wan"

Rigging issues delayed this boats return in 2016, but she was put away running great. The new Mercury feels like a brand new engine because it is and it makes Obi a very offordable opportunity to run a 2016 engine!     $195 half day   $295 full day

Zeppelin Brand 15' RIB "LAKE ZEPPELIN"

Uh Oh an Otter clawed the starboard rear air tube! My chief engineer assures me he can patch her up again but currently she is down. I will update once we have her good to go again, or perhaps this is your chance to own The Lake Zeppelin, make an offer!
