IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ!
To rent my boat as a bareboat without a captain, please consider the following before sending a message.
1: Previous experience on the Potomac/Occoquan is required.
2: You must be comfortable driving and docking in a crowded, fast paced marina. no novices.
3: kids: all children 13 and under are required to have properly fitting lifejackets on at all times per USCG regulations. I do not have children sizes, so you must bring a lifejacket for each child you bring!
4: You must have your boaters safety certificate or USCG Captains license.
5: A checkride on the boat is required prior to me approving a rental. We will go out together and you will drive. If you arent comfortable with the requirements, we can discuss doing some practice/training. I want to rent to you, but I want to make sure it goes well and is safe.
I require the above to protect us both. The water looks the same from the surface, but the potomac is shallow and challenging, especially at low tide.
I have done several special events, weddings, and my boat has been used for journalism, commercial video, and photo shoots of places off the river. I love special projects and will gladly discuss any use/ideas you have as well as SPECIAL RATES for any special events to fit your budget!

Boat is kept at a marina on the Potomac river in Woodbridge. It is not available to be trailered anywhere without advance arrangement. Boat is ideal for skiing, tubing, wakeboarding, etc, but I do not own any toys or tow lines. You are WELCOME to bring your own! Please have your boaters safety course completed before attempting to rent! This is required by law in VA. Thanks!!
Matt was absolutely amazing. I asked if he could show me the ropes on how to operate a boat. I brought my toddler with me and he was great at managing teaching me and keeping my son occupied. He's funny and a great person. Loved his boat and cannot wait to go for another round! Thanks Matt !!!
I had a great experience renting from Matt. He was very easy to work with, very flexible, and very helpful. The boat was really nice, as well, and the marina and location were great. The boat is in excellent condition, performed well and was really quiet but still had smooth, quick acceleration. It was clear that Matt obviously maintains the boat very well. My son and I had a really good time. The boat was perfect for a fun day on the Potomac. We explored the river, stopped for lunch at Tim's Rivershore restaurant, and explored Occoquan River. The whole day couldn't have gone any better, and Matt was great. If you rent this boat, you will be glad you did.
I have been boating all my life. Mostly 60x40 Cats with dual outboards. Recently, I purchased a 32 foot Luhrs-Flybridge-Cruiser that was hit by lightening the first day I took her out. Had to have it refitted but I already scheduled plans with my friends. So, I looked up Boat bound and found Matts amazing vessel. He walked me through all the intricacies and nuances of his boat.Took me out on a test run and showed me first hand how to pilot his ship. He also texted me during our journey ro make sure we were safe. He is am AMAZING person and would recommend him to anyone. Great guy and phenomenal boat. He saved my weekend!!!! Thanks Matt for everything!
We had a great time with Matt! He captained the boat and had me drive a bit as well. He is very knowledgeable about the area, restaurants, spots to anchor and swim, etc., and a very experienced boater as well. Would definitely recommend!
The ride with Matt was great, me and my friends we all had a blast.
He took is to couple cool places and we had lunch in a really cool restaurant, I totally recommend him and will rent again from him soon.
He boat is great, clean and in perfect conditions.
Matt was terrific. He's a first rate guy and was diligent in showing me the nuances of his boat. He was very thorough in the pre-boat inspection and made sure that I was a good fit to drive his boat. Matt also gave me detailed instructions and provided good first hand knowledge of any obstacles near his marina. He's laid back, but thoughtful and wants to make sure you have a good experience on his boat. Rent from him without hesitation.
