Rent the most affordable Bow Rider in the area today!
The Bayliner 175 is a great 18 foot affordable bow rider to enjoy a day on the Potomac or even Lake Anna. I am able to bring the boat to any Marina/Ramp along the Virginia side of the Potomac River and Lake Anna with advanced notice (Renter pays any ramp or park entry fees). It's very reliable with an engine overhaul done Spring of 2017 and new propeller. It carries 20 gallons of unleaded fuel which is plenty for the day, or two! It has an amazing stereo system complete with two 10" subwoofers, 4 mid-range speakers, Bluetooth connectivity, and USB/Aux inputs. It can travel up to 40 MPH easily in calm waters and is great for tubing or water skiing (not included). A Tow-rope is provided upon request. A large built-in cooler for storing beverages and food is provided (make sure to bring ice!). Use the Garmin GPS & Sounder to navigate yourself around the Potomac or Chesapeake and find the big fish as they display on the color screen. The bimini top is a great feature to help shield you from the sun when it gets too hot.
José was right - this is a great beginner’s boat! He was very thorough in his explanations and the boat was easy to handle. We spent the whole day wandering up and down the Potomac (he brought the boat to Belle Haven marina for us - $8 for the ramp fee), and we only used about half a tank of gas. José responded quickly to all communications and was very accommodating. We are already planning our next day out his boat!
This boat was a great value for a day around Washington DC. My family and I had an awesome time on the water. The boat handled well and gave us no problems. Jose was very professional and ensured we were taken care of for the trip. He gave me everything I needed to include dock and dine recommendations along the Potomac. If I come back to the area, I'm definitely renting from him again. Thanks Jose!
