Fernand was very welcoming and did a great job showing us the boat operations and safety features before we went out. Boat was very clean and well equipped, ran great and had a great day on the water. Would definitely rent again from Fernand.
Perfect boat rental for Palm Beach. Enough room to take out-of-town (landlubber) guests out on the ICW in style and comfort, and rigged for an offshore day with the guys fishing and diving. You will need some experience to handle the 28. Fernand's private dock in North Palm and close proximity to fuel make it extremely convenient and easy for both Jupiter and Palm Beach.
We would definitely rent this boat again!
Our day with Fernand's Mako was perfect!
I had my whole family here so the 10 of us ranging from 3 to 63 enjoyed a beautiful day out on the intercoastal highway from Fort Lauderdale.
Fernand was super helpful on introducing the boat and going over all the paperwork.
As my first time rental with boatbound I couldn't be more satisfied, can't wait to rent again!
