John Travolta's old Boat! No really not joking

About my boat

You are looking at a Chris Craft Launch 25. This boat has the lines of the classic wood boats of the early 20s with everything you expect from a modern boat. The boat has fridge, sink and head. The boat spent most of its life as the Yacht Tender to John Travolta's Yacht.

Bring your food and drinks and I will meet you at any pier in Marin or SF and take you where you'd like to go.

If you get a group together its much more fun than riding the ferry and just a little more expensive. You get a tour of the bay and your personal boat for the day.

I am open to bareboat rentals but you must prove you're qualified to operate before the boat goes out without me or one of my captains.
Fuel is not included in the price.

Cruise around the bay in style with my Chris Craft. If you have any questions please message me.

Discounts for previous successful renters. Captains for the day work out to be $100

    This was our first trip on the bay and Eric's boat was truly a very good choice. We were 10 (6 adults & 4 kids of 10) and felt very confortable and very safe, even with swell & waves during the afternoon. Everything was in order on the boat (security equipment, instrumentation). Pick up & drop of were as easy as it's possible to be and Eric was very accommodating about schedule.
    Speedometer needs fixing (kids love to know how fast we are going :-) ).
    We will definitely rent Eric's boat for our future trips !

    Eric was really reliable with communication, and made sure our rental went smoothly. He always responded quickly and checked in frequently. The boat was just the right size for our needs, and we enjoyed tooling around the Bay for a day!

    Eric is a very cool and nice guy, extremely flexible.

    The boat however needs some serious cleaning. When we had it, it was a dump. There was all sorts of stuff flying around, big and small - lots of stain on carpet and seats, wetbar was full of papers and all sorts of things. Anything but what you would think being a (bit of a) luxurious boating experience.

    So 5* for Eric, 2* for the boat.

    As always an Awesome day! Will definitely be renting Eric's boat again. We had an amazing time cruising around from McCovey cove to the Golden Gate. All around a perfect afternoon! I highly recommend this boat!

    My friends and I had a wonderful time boating with Eric. He took us for a half day tour around the bay. Eric was very responsive and patient throughout the entire trip. I would definitely recommend Eric if you're looking to cruise around the San Francisco bay.

    Eric's boat is a great way to tour the bay. We took the boat to McCovey Cove to watch the Giants game and showed our guests the city and Alcatraz. The boat was reliable, easy to handle and Eric was a dream to work with.

    Eric is great and the boat is easy to drive. We went out for a check-in and then took the boat out the next afternoon for a lovely afternoon. Pro tip: check out Sam's Anchor cafe in Tiburon.

    Eric was a fun host and a good communicator. We had a great day on the boat. Very roomy. We had 4 people and it was perfect (although it can hold more). Gas is extra so plan accordingly (Eric had informed me in advance so I was prepared). We toured around the bay and had nice stops in Tiburon and Sausalito. We will rent again from Eric and Boatbound!!!!

    Eric was really great, and his boat is a beauty. Eric was very responsive, super easy going, and a genuinely fun person to be around. His boat is very nice, and quite spacious. You can tell it used to be a tender because it handles very easily, is very quiet, and the leather and finishes are top-notch.
    While we were docked at Angel Island another Chris Craft-owning couple complimented us on Eric's boat!
    I plan to charter from Eric again in the very near future, and highly recommend working with him!

    Eric was a very helpful owner. He is very quick to reply to communications and the whole experience of renting from him was easy.

    The boat is great for a group outing on the bay. It's very new and in good shape, and I had no worries about reliability or anything during our time of use. It's well equipped with a stereo, cooler and comfy seats, and super easy to drive. Overall great experience!

    Eric was more then accommodating. We called him up last minute and requested the boat. He met us at the dock 20 minutes later and we were on the water! We had an amazing tour of the Bay. The boat is in great shape, I plan to rent this boat out again! Thanks so much BoatBound!

    Eric's boat is an absolute joy to take out on the water. A group of friends and I took it out on a Saturday, looped around Alcatraz, docked and lounged on some benches at Ayala Cove on Angel Island, then cruised over to Sam's in Tiburon for a very fun brunch. All in all, a great day on the bay. Eric's boat is a beautiful machine, and Eric was nothing but accommodating and responsive. He even met me at the marina the day before to show me all the ins and outs of using his Chris Craft. This is one of my favorites in the Boatbound fleet, and I'll definitely be renting this boat again soon.

    We had a wonderful time on Eric's boat, which has some great luxury features, handles well, and easily accommodated 5 of us. Eric was easy to coordinate with and a nice guy to meet. We would definitely rent this boat again.

Always wanted a boat growing up, and being by the water so much the last few years I thought I should buy one. I want to let other people come out on the boat and have some safe fun. If you have any questions or special concerns please let me know. I email back very quickly and would love to help you out. Thank you for stopping by.
