Thanks for a great 2017! I know the weather is still nice out but learning from year previous I am going to use the nice weather to put the boats away for next year. I also am taking some time to enjoy the boats myself and with my staff. So sorry to say it but I am closed for the season.

Tiara 26 "Under The Weather"

Under The Weather is my first boat with a Cabin and it also has a nice all weather canvas enclosure. She is a little bit older than my other boats but well taken care of and with the Tiara quality she is a beautiful boat that has space down below. This is still just a day use boat with a cabin. The head is liquids only.  The GPS and depth sounder are a little dated and I hope to update them soon. This boat also has down riggers for fishing if you know how to down rigger fish let me know and I can put them on the boat. (bring your own fishing gear other than down riggers). This boat also has Trim Tabs.  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 30 mph. Yacht certified means it has no legal limit to people you can take as long as you have life jackets for everyone, but she doesnt have the power to plane off with more than 6 or 7 adults. Seating on this boat is limited, other than the helm seat people would have to stand or go below.  I lowered the price on this boat, I have seen that it burns a lot of gas, especially when trying to perform the same amount of cruising as my other boats. Everything that makes this boat just push through Lake Superior waves also makes it burn gas as this is a larger cabin cruiser boat. I have seen several $200 gas bills on this boat already.  She is cosmetically excellent and in great shape, she is a 1984 Tiara.  This boat is not available for overnight liveaboard rentals.  Half Day  $295;  Full Day $375

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. *UPDATE Deep Blue has had a rough year. Fiber glass has been damaged and fixed, but she shows some abuse and so I lowered her price to $375 a day, still the best Deep V Hull and strongest power plant for Lake Superior.  Half Day  $295;  Full Day $375

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. 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 and Mallard are both Regal LRS 2100 Seagull has a slightly larger 5.0 liter engine. With the Fastrac Hull she is efficient, fast and fun to drive. She has a mercruiser V8 5.0 liter. 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. She is very quick and able to get up into the 50+ mph range. Seagull also 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

EFFICIENT Regal Speed boat "Mallard"

Mallard

Mallard is my most recently acquired boat. She is a sister ship to Seagull but with a smaller V6 engine. She still has the FasTrac hull which to me is just the perfect package for rental and cruising. The air pocket makes the boat efficient, sporty fast and fun to drive. It also allows the boat to cut through choppy seas and she performs well even in moderate Lake Superior Chop. Mallard has a Humingbird GPS and a CD player/Stereo. She is awaiting a permanent mounted VHF radio but I have a hand held for the meantime I will send with you. Perhaps a little slower than Seagull she should be slightly more fuel efficient.

$375 Full Day;  $295 Half Day

Cobalt 21' Cuddy Cruiser "Sebastian II"

Sebastian2

Sebastian II is a classic Cobalt 21' Cuddy Cruiser. This boat has a small cabin to stow things and for the kids to crawl around in. She has high gunwales and a very nice windshield making her feel very seaworthy. She has a V8 Mercruiser power plant and I/O. Recommended Capacity is 6 people.

$225 1/2 day; $325 Full day

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

Available by the hour on the waterfront!

Aquasport Tourneycat 16' "Piping PLover"

PipingPlover

If you just want to rent a boat for an hour or two this is the boat for you. Available for rent right off the Waterfront Kiosk this boat is a 16 foot center console catamaran. Yes it has a catamaran hull and a new Mercury 90hp outboard. There are two seat behind the windshield and a small bench in front my maximum recommended capacity is 4 people or 650lbs. This boat is limited by it's fuel tank and size to Madeline Island, Basswood Island, Hermit Island, and Long Island. This boat is smaller and you may get splashed and the scuppers let water in so often your feet might get wet too. 

$95 an Hour; $175 for 2 hours. Fuel Included! 

Sea doo spark jet skis!

sparks

Now available we have 2 Sea Doo Sparks. They are 3 seater or 450lbs legally but you are required to be able and demonstrate a water re-entry to the Jet Ski. I will be honest 3 people makes that sound difficult. Single Jet Ski rentals are limited to staying in sight. But if you rent both for 2 hours you can take them around Madeline Island but only on really nice days, or to the Big Bay State Park. Or you could rent Piping Plover to accompany a Jet Ski for a Big Bay or Around Madeline Rental. Jet Skis are not permitted in The National Lake Shore. Just being within 1/4 mile can result in government trouble and fines. They have a 2.5 hour fuel tank so I am just doing 1 and 2 hour rentals, no long term rentals available. All drivers must be 18 years of age. 

$75 an Hour *fuel included;  $135 2 hours *Fuel included

Honda aquatrax perfomance jet ski

aquatrax

High performance Jet Ski with a Turbo Charger. I probably shouldn't rent this collectible Honda Jet Ski so I ask that you please respect and enjoy the power in moderation. Run it at 80% for a while before you bring it up all the way. This machine easily bumps up to 65mph and is a total thrill to ride. No reckless driving or excessive hammering on this amazing machine. 

$100 an hour, $165 2 hours *Gas included

 

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. $150 2 hours. 1 tank of gas included.
