We rented Dmitry's Sea Ray 245 Weekender recently while on vacation in D.C. and can't say enough about how professional and helpful Dmitry was! We switched our reservation at the last minute from a Wednesday to a Monday and Dmitry was fine with that and jumped through a few hoops to get us taken care of. Very patient, very pleasant, completely professional.
The boat was right where he said to would be, ready to go and in pretty good shape considering the fact that it's a rental boat and probably gets abused quite a bit. Nothing real exciting to describe or review about the boat, except for the fact that the GPS was really wonky and kept freezing up. We had to restart it a few times and had to disconnect the power once to get it back in action. Not a huge deal, but when you're on an unknown waterway for the first time, the GPS gives you another layer of situational awareness, which helps to make the day more fun. Other than the flakey GPS, the boat was great!
As I mentioned above, Dmitry was fantastic to work with and I would 100%, no-doubt-about-it rent from him again. I'd give him a 5/5 stars, no question!
I had another great experience renting from Dmitry. I've booked with Dmitry several times now and he is always great to work with. He has also taught me a lot about boating. I like his Sea Ray 245 a lot -- great features and very well maintained. It turned out to be a nice day for a cruise up and down the Potomac -- to Georgetown, down to Old Town, and some other stops along the way. I can't say enough about how great Dmitry is to work with. I'm looking forward to taking Eureka out again.
Everything was perfect! Dmitry was accommodating, very knowledgeable and gave us a perfect itinerary that worked perfectly for our day on the water. Boat was mechanically perfect and provided us with a great day for sightseeing. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in an easy day out on the water in DC!
We had a very good experience with Dimitry. He was very responsive right from the beginning and patiently answered our dozens of questions. He was also willing to make adjustments to time and pick-up location. The boat was very nice and we had a blast. We will definitely rent from Dimitry again.
We took our 3 grandchildren and our dtr out on the Potomac with Dmitry as our Captain. We had a fabulous day. The kids had a blast on the raft, also enjoyed swimming in the river. Went to lunch at the Marina. Dmitry was a great host. Good with the kids. Thank you Dmitry for a memorable experience. Lorraine and Fred
Dmitry was helpful and accessible. We had zero problems and a great time.
He has a great boat and is very knowledgeable about his boat.
My friends and I plan to be repeat renters. I would highly suggest his boat to others!!!
We just had another great rental of Dmitry's boat. Dmitry is always very accommodating and responsive. The boat is well maintained and perfect for fun day trips. With children having an actual enclosed head rather than a port-a-potty, makes trips a bit easier on us. I have no hesitation in rating the experience with 5 stars
Dmitry was extremely nice, I rented out the boat and had Dmitry helped being the captain for my moms birthday. It was a weekday and he was very flexible with the time. We were late for arrival, but he was very relaxed and very patient.
He also had everything on the boat, we had a chance to get into the water at the end of the day, and he was very nice and provided a lot of things that we didnt have on hand. Dmitry even told me about boats and let me drive it for a while.
I highly recommend him and this weekender, he's very friendly and very chill. All of the guests on the boat had a great time.
We had a great day on Dmitry's boat. He had it all ready for us to pick up in Georgetown which made it easy. Once we casted off, we cruised the potomac soaking in the monuments from the water. Then it was up the Anacostia River to check out Nationals stadium and the new Navy Yards. After that we set out for Alexandria, National Harbor, and eventually dropped anchor right across from Mount Vernon for some sunbathing, swimming, and rafting (included on the boat). On the way back we filled up at Columbia Island Marina and met Dmitry back in Georgetown. What a great day... on an inexpensive and easy to drive boat. Can't wait to come back to DC and rent this boat again!
This was my first experience with boatbound and Dmitry was extremely helpful throughout the entire process. My goal was to get some boating experience and Dmitry was a great teacher. I definitely plan to get some additional instruction with him. The boat was very nice as well and I look forward to taking it out on my own with family and friends once I get some more experience with Dmitry.
Dmitry was on time at the Georgetown Waterfront at 11:00 AM as agreed for my rental of his Sea Ray 245 Weekender. His boat check-out was very thorough and professional and I started the rental with a sound understanding of the layout, controls and characteristics of the boat. He shared specific local knowledge of the waterways; no wake zones, anchorages to avoid, etc. We had a fantastic day on the water going down river to Tim's Rivershore for shrimp and crabs and returning to meet Dmitry in Georgetown at 5:30.
Dmitry is a very professional and personable guy and I would definitely rent from him again and recommend him to others considering his Sea Ray boats.
We had a perfect day on the Potomac River.
Dmitry was very friendly and easy going. He met us at the dock and had the boat ready for us right on time. We completed the walk-through and check list easily. This was our first time on the Potomac river and Dmitry went over the chart I had brought, highlighting the speed zones, shallow areas and points of interest. We were then off for our day of boating. This boat shows some signs of normal wear and tear for a boat of this age, however it ran well and we found the boat very comfortable and functional.
At the end of the day we returned to the dock and gave Dmitry a call. He arrived a short time later and after a short visit, we again completed the post rental check-out quickly and easily. Really a great day of boating.
Dmitri was professional, thorough, and my group and I had a great experience with the boat which is great condition and ran flawlessly. His flexibility with the return time was awesome and let us have a very full day on the Potomac. Highly recommended.
We had a fantastic day on Dmitry's Sea Ray boat. Dmitry was helpful in so many different ways that went above and beyond the duty of a boat owner. I use a wheelchair and Dmitry accommodated me by suggesting a marina that was easier to use. Great day, great guy and fantastic boat. Couldn't have asked for anything better or more.
Dmitry is organized and accommodating. His run-through of the briefing was comprehensive, he was helpful in getting us out on time (despite being in the midst of rescuing paddleboarders from an unusually swift Potomac current) and the boat ran as advertized. Looking forward to the next outing.
We had a great experience renting from Dmitry. He was very helpful in getting us comfortable with the boat, extremely flexible with the timing of pick up and drop off and an overall fun guy to rent a boat from. Will definitely rent from Dmitry again.
Dmitry was phenomenal! I really can't say enough good things about this first experience with boat bound. The boat was perfect, clean and had every feature to make our evening enjoyable (music, cooler, speed, storage, comfortable seats, etc) Dmitry was at the dock early and came up to meet me on the pier. He was so friendly and knowledgable about the Potomac and knew all of the spots to moor and got us to Old Town in perfect timing for our dinner reservation. I would love to sail with him again!
My experience renting Dmitry's 24.5 Sea Ray Weekender was nothing short of exemplary customer service. From my very first inquiry, Dmitry was responsive, informative, and best of all flexible. Even up to the morning of the reservation, he kept me updated on a storm approaching and was willing to adjust the timing and location based on the inclement weather. Thankfully, the storm didn't come until much later in the day and we had a great time out on the water. His boat is aptly powered, handles well, and was given to us in great condition (clean & fully-fueled). Dmitry was also very thorough in his explanation of the boat and provides a great overview upon going out on the water. I will most definitely rent this boat from Dmitry again in the future!
Dmitry super nice, very helpful, and the day was a lot of fun. He offered to reschedule because of heavy rain on the day we had reserved. We were 3 onboard plus a child and that was plenty comfortable. Boat is fast, and the navigation instruments are helpful if you are not familiar with the Potomac. No downside, we plan to rent again.
I had a great experience with Dmitry and his boat Eureka! He knows the DC waterways like the back of his hand. He is very friendly and helpful to get you on your way on the water. I look forward to renting from him again. 5 Stars!!!!!
Dmitry was so awesome! He was immensely patient and gracious with my many questions about renting, questions about his boat, and questions about boating on the Potomac. He guided us thru his marina location. He did a great job with orientation to the boat when we got there. He was flexible about pickup and drop offs. His boat was solid and reliable...... a great casual cruiser for touring, with great features like depth, GPS for finding the channels, and even a radio. Nice big bow for rough water. Would definitely rent Eureka from him again.
Dmitry is a very nice guy who was very reliable. The boat was perfect for spending a few hours out on the water with friends and Dmitry was very flexible about when and where to meet us with the boat. The cost was incredibly reasonable and we had a great time.
D'mitri was very knowledgeable about boating on the Potomac and the Eureka comfortably fit all 8 of us including our large cooler. He was quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had and helped make our day as smooth, easy, and fun as possible.
Dmitry is an extremely knowledgeable boater who works hard to make sure you enjoy your time on the water. He is very good at communicating, quick to respond to any questions, and really goes out of his way for the renter. Eureka! runs really well and comes equipped with everything you will need for a day on the water, whether that is cruising around, or finding a good spot and dropping anchor. Eureka! is very smooth and easily controlled and has enough power to put a smile on your face when you give her full power.
Dmitry's knowledge cannot be understated - it is what made the experience pleasurable as this was my first time renting through Boatbound. Having never traveled the Potomac, Dmitry was able to provide suggestions for places to go and was prepared to answer questions about navigating the DC area by boat.
If you are interested in trying Boatbound for the first time, I cannot reccomend Dmitry enough!
This was my second rental with Dmitry, and I cannot say enough good things about the experienced. Dmitry is always extremely responsive in communications, very accommodating with respect to the itinerary, and a superb teacher with respect to everything you would ever want to know about his boat and the Potomac. The boat itself is in great condition, and has everything that you could possible need for a safe and memorable day on the Potomac. This time we left/returned to Columbia Island Marina, which has become my favorite area marina because it has plenty of parking and a small cafe/store. I look forward to several other rentals with Dmitry this summer. I strongly recommend him to anyone looking to anyone looking to rent a power boat on the Potomac.
Dmitry was great to deal with and very accommodating with the departure time and arrival back to the harbor. Dmitry's Sea Ray was awesome; great condition and perfect for all areas of the Potomac. I would certainly rent from Dmitry again!
Would highly recommend!! We rented the boat from Dmitry for July 4th festivities and he promptly answered all our questions leading up to the rental. He was very receptive and accommodating to our requests. The boat was clean and perfect for our group (fits 6-8 people). It also includes tubing equipment which we very much appreciated. We're looking to rent again this summer!
Dmitry was awesome, he is very knowledgeable and def wanted us to have a good time. The boat is in great shape and is very comfortable to operate. Pick up and drop off was a breeze, will be renting a couple more times this summer!
It's always great to meet Boatbound owners in person, get a tour on their boat, and have a little fun. This week we rented Dmitry's Sea Ray which was perfect for cruising the DC waters. As one of our top owners, Dmitry is always quick to respond, makes sure you have everything you need to have an awesome day on the water, and is willing to go the extra mile to make sure you come back again and again.
His boat is awesome. For a beginner, a quick lesson from Dmitry should make you comfortable operating it. If not, ask him about getting a Captain. For the single day rental where you want to head under the Key Bridge, drop anchor by Three Sisters and just relax, this boat is ideal. With a cabin for napping, and a deck for getting some sun, stand up paddle boards and tubes, it's got everything you need.
If you want to pull a tube or skier, it's got those too. All in all Dmitry is a great owner who will make sure you and 6-8 of your friends have an awesome day on the water. I'd definitely rent this boat again!
I cannot recommend Dmitry enough. Anyone that joins Dmitry on his boat will have a day they will never forget. He knows the seas very well and has impressive attention to detail. The best part about cruising with Dmitry is you can truly feel his passion for boating at all times and it is infectious! Dmitry is a great teacher and an-all around fun guy to hang out with. I can't wait for our next trip with him!
5 out of 5 Stars for Dmitry and his Sea Ray 245!! Dmitry was more than accomidating whether is was bringing ice for the cooler or answering questions about boating! I will be refering him to family, friends, and clients. Thanks again Dmitry.
We had a great charter with Dmitry. He was very easy to work with, and always very responsive to e-mails. I was looking for someone who would be willing to teach me both his boat and navigation around the Potomac, and he was a great teacher! It was also very clear that he paid attention to the details, which I both noticed and appreciated. I look forward to going out on his boat again.
We had an great time with Dmitry captaining the boat full day. He was very responsive with all our requests to take our kids tubing and water skiing. His boat is very clean and nice. He has all the fun water sport gear and made them available to us. Dmitry wanted to make sure we had a great experience but he was also very safety conscious so we don't have worry. Our family had a super fun time and we look forward to rent from Dmitry again.
