The boat is quick, easy to handle, and with the low swim platform is easy to get in and out of the river. Every time I take it out I remember how much fun it is to drive.
The Moomba Outback is a great boat for skiing, wake boarding, or tubing. It's also a great way to get out on the water with 10 close friends or 8 with a little more elbow room to enjoy a day swimming and sunning on the potomac. Easy to maneuver, handles like a Corvette on the water. I can't begin to tell you how much fun it is to drive.
The boat is great for a day spent swimming up river of georgetown where you can forget you are just 10 minutes from DC or going for lunch in old town (or finding Nauti Foods on the river). You can also take it up the Anacostia River on Friday evenings for the concerts they do at yards park. You get to float on the river and enjoy the concert.
I find the best skiing is in the morning on the DC shore of the river between the memorial bridge and 395. Once the boats come out for the day it's time for tubing.
I have double skis, a wide body slalom, an intermediate slalom and a competition slalom ski. I also have a tube and a wakeboard. You can BYO or you can rent the equipment from me.
Ari was awesome!! Very responsive, super easy to deal with. My brother and I were extremely excited for a day of wakeboarding on the boat. When neither of the boards fit my brothers foot, he thought his day was ruined. After calling around to see if we could rent from a store, and even considered purchasing a setup up of his own, we called Ari. 10 min later he had us meet up with a friend at the dock with another board that fit. Seriously saved the day. I look forward to using his services and boat next season for sure.
I had a great experience renting from Ari. He was very easy to work with, very flexible, totally prepared, and boat was in great condition. I had a great day, and will definitely rent from Ari again. The boat was ideal for a fun day on the river, and I am already planning my next rental.
Ari is a great guy to rent from. Makes the rental process extremely easy and I plan to rent from him frequently. If you are looking to have an awesome time on the river in DC you have to message Ari and get it set up. 5/5 stars!
Would definitely recommend Ari and his speed boat. We had a fantastic day. Ari was very responsive and super easy to work with. He even brought us a new pump to blow up floatables while we were out and about. The boat has plenty of pick up and was great for tubing. We will be renting again for sure.
Ari and his boat were great for the Potomac. Ari made sure I knew how to run things and my family thoroughly enjoyed his boat, great pep for tubing. Marina was easy to get to, plenty of parking, good location on river for going both up and downstream. A bimini top would have made it perfect.
Ari seems friendly at first but don't let that fool you. The stuff he mentions that are included are not. He is sort of touch and go. Where is the registration, where are the life vests? Took about 20 minutes to find these things as the coast guard was stopping to ask everyone on the weekend of the Fourth of July. Started the day on sour note thanks to Ari's lack of organization.
Did I mention that Ari is very passive aggressive? He will be immature and childlike. He will text you or contact you via social media if he is displeased. If you did not wipe down the boat or tie the ropes to his satisfaction he will text you. He will message you on social media to ask for more money to replace parts of the boat. Doesn't matter if those parts, say the boat cover for example, came back in perfect condition.
Heaven help you if you have to drive a boat back in a summer rain. Ari can't stand when people use parts of his boat to protect themselves from the elements. He will take it out of your safety deposit to buy himself a brand new boat cover. Even if the boat cover came back completely intact.
Avoid this renter at all costs if you a stress free experience for renting a boat.
Ari was very flexible to work with scheduling and pricing for the water sports gear so two thumbs up there. Despite the boat stereo system being out, the boat overall was in good condition. There is a portable capsule-like bluetooth speaker to sync your phone to in lieu of the stereo so it wasn't a big issue. I would definitely recommend renting this boat from Ari. No complaints here and a perfect day out on the Potomac for the 4th of July weekend!
