“I love Pacific Northwest for all choices available for outdoor activities. Boating has been one of them for a long time. My family and I enjoy our time on the boat whenever possible. But I’m also looking forward to other folks get to enjoy on-board of my runabout.”
Aboard since 2015
From Everett, WA
Had a great day on Lake Washington with Emil's boat. Emil was very responsive to all our questions in advance, had the boat ready to go when we arrived. It was clean, comfortable and fun! We'd definitely rent from him again.
Emil was a pleasure to deal with. He answered questions/emails promptly & was ready & waiting in the dock when we got there. He spent time with us to make sure we knew what we were doing & was patient & kind. . The boat was comfortable & mechanically sound. We really enjoyed our day & look forward to doing this again. It's such a great way to enjoy boating but not throw money into a hole in the water. I'd recommend Emil's boat and can't wait to experience another day in the water soon
We rented Emil's boat on Friday, June 21st for the day- the boat was super clean, well supplied, and Emil had a good variety of water toys for us to choose from. He had the boat in the water when we arrived and was there, ready for pick up when we got back. He was incredibly friendly, so easy-going, and made us feel right at home with the boat. His communication prior to the rental was lightning fast and professional. I loved that there was an iphone charger on the boat! We couldn't have asked for a better experience! Thank you so much Emil!
We had a very positive experience renting this boat from Emil. He was very responsive, friendly and flexible. The boat worked well for our needs. I would definitely rent from him again and recommend others to use this service.
Our experience with Emil was wonderful! He was quick to respond to us whenever we needed to contact him. He brought the boat to us and picked it up from us, which made our trip so much easier. Emil is extremely polite and easy to work with. Should we ever need a boat in his area again, we will for sure rent from him.
Emil was amazing!! The day of the rental, we text Emil to see if we could change the times due to rain. He made it happen. We had a family of 4 and the boat fit us great. 6 people on the boat would have been fine also. He gave us a quick overview of the boat and we were off on Lake Washington. If your thinking about renting a boat in the Seattle area, do not worry about Emil, he will take really good care of you. All you have to do is show up. The boat is in great condition and worked like a champ... 5 Plus stars in our eyes.
Had a great day boating with friends on Emils boat. He communicated with me whenever I needed information. The boat was presented to us clean and with a full tank. He was also flexible with our needs and made sure we had the best time possible. Definitely a top notch person to rent from. If and when I rent a boat again, it will be from Emil.
Thanks again sir.
Great Boat. Great Experience
My wife and I took out Emil's boat on Lake Washington for a day. It was a laid back outing for us, catching up and reading on the water. The boat was clean, and more than capable. We didn't take the throttle beyond halfway, so it was much more capable than we needed it to be, in fact. Emil was on time and always very responsive. Highly recommended. We'd take this boat out again.
We had a great day with the bayliner. Everything was just perfect and Emil is a wonderful renter: the boat was ready at the lane when we arrived, communication was very fast and easy and Emil is very friendly and helpful. Thanks for this nice experience!
I rented Emil's boat for me and my adult kids . There were 5 of us and we had a fantastic time! I am not from Seattle so I needed to rely on Emil's advice as far as a drop off/launch location. His recommendation was perfect. Emil was very accommodating and helpful. Getting us lined out on the boat was super easy. The boat ran great and was perfect for wakeboarding, tubing and just generally hanging out and sightseeing on Lake Washington. I highly recommend Emil and will absolutely rent from him again.
We had an amazing time renting from Emil. He arrived before our arranged meet up time and already had the boat in the water ready to go, and then gave us a quick but informative run-down of his boat and basic rules/safety. The boat itself was very clean and was fast and easy to drive! Overall we had an amazing experience and would definitely rent from emil again.
We loved Emil's boat! Emil and his wife were excellent to rent from! The boat was in very good condition. Emil was very responsive. This was our first time renting a boat in Lake Washington. Emil gave us excellent directions and good instruction on using his boat. I would highly recommend Emil and his boat!
I can't say enough good about renting Emil's boat. He was very, very responsive to my emails and questions. We rented his boat for two days and he was willing to deliver the boat and worked with us to have it available the next day. The boat was clean and well maintained. We loved the swimming platform on the stern. We used the boat for tubing, wakeboarding and slalom skiing. We had a little trouble pulling up a slalom skier from deep water but after up there was plenty of power to give the skiers a good ride.
Emil was very pleasant work with. Thanks for a great experience renting your boat.
Much better than could ever imagine. Emil does not just provide a great boat, but a great service. First off, he'll bring the boat to you within 30 minutes of Everett so you can start from where you want to start. We arrive about 10-15 minutes early so he doesn't have to wait for us (okay, we were anxious). The boat was already in the water! After a quick tour of the boat, we're off to an absolutely amazing day. I text Emil about 80 minutes before we expect to be back and arrived about 10 minutes early. There's Emil on the shore looking for us with his truck/trailer 2nd in line at the launch. We wait a few seconds for them to get in the water and drive the boat right up the trailer; out of the water in no time. Condition of the boat was excellent and after we remove our stuff, Emil gets gas on his way home (so we don't have to pay crazy gas prices on the water), cleans boat inside and out, and it's ready for the next customer. So yeah, not only a clean dependable boat, but amazing service. My family would definitely rent this boat from Emil again. Amazing Day!!! Thank you Emil!!!
We had a really great time. Picked up the boat at the Everett boat launch which was really convenient for us. The boat was there on time and the checkout process was very easy. The boat was clean and had all the amenities that we needed. There were 7 of us, 4 adults and 3 children ages 4, 6, and 9. It was very comfortable for us and the kids thought it was "awesome". The boat was very easy to operate as we cruised up to Langley for a quick lunch stop. Then on up to Penn Cove before heading back towards Edmonds. Emil was very responsive and overall great to work with. We will definitely want to do this again.
We had a great time on Emil's boat. He is quick to respond, accommodating, and flexible with scheduling. He made the entire process very smooth and easy. The boat was clean, fast, easy to maneuver, and fit our group of 8 comfortably. Would definitely recommend!
As first time boat renters, we were a little nervous, but Emil was fantastic! He delivered the boat right to us at Big Lake, was super accommodating of our schedule, and the hand off was excellent. Emil is warm, friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful. His instructions were clear and thorough and he made sure we had everything we needed - life jackets, gas tank for refills, and he even lent us a tow rope for our tube (he's got a plethora of useful boating equipment in the back of his truck that he's happy to share). The boat itself was excellent - the perfect size for our 8 person party, zippy and handled really well. We will definitely call on Emil again the next time we need to rent a boat. A+++
Emil was the most fantastic host I've ever had on Boat Bound. He communicated well, was early and actually had the boat in the water for us already. He was flexible with scheduling, meeting place, and had everything ready and pointed out for us on the boat to make it a quick efficient hand off. The boat itself was well laid out and our whole party commented how well it was laid out for fun in the sun, so we can't thank enough.
Owner is responsive, accommodating and easy to work with. Boat is in good repair, powerful and a good handle. Makes 35-38 knots throughout the Sound in fair seas. Comfortably seats 5 for travelling, or 6-8 for touring and trollino. Great rental experience.
We rented Emil's boat and had a great time! He was prompt and we were underway in no time. He even brought a tube and tubing life jackets for us and the boat had a bimini top. So fun! The boat was clean, handled well, and fun!
Emil was amazing! He was very responsive and easy to book! He was early and had the boat in the water waiting for us. He carefully took time to explain everything to make sure we had a great experience. The boat was in top-notch condition. I hope to use Emils boat again!!
Emil was absolutely outstanding to rent from. He was very accommodating, especially if the weather turned. He was a quick phone call away if we wanted to come in early (Which we didnt), or if weather was bad. The boat was in great condition and was a blast to drive. It was very fast in open water and was great for a cruise around lake Washington and lake union. I would definitely recommend him and his boat. I hope to rent again in the future!
Emil was great to work with. He answered messages right away, was at delivery and pickup for the boat when he said he would be, the boat held the capacity stated comfortably, and was very clean and accommodating (he let us borrow a cooler as well). Me and my friends had a great time would definitely recommend Email as a person to work with.
Emil was incredibly friendly and helpful and informative-being very understanding when we asked to change the rental date because of bad weather. He met us at a convenient location and was very accommodating with everything we needed. The boat was pretty great too, definitely fast when you needed it to be but also not something I would suggest for those that are looking to take it on choppy weather or tough waters. All in all great experience!
I highly recommend Emil and his boat. He was early and had the boat on the water and ready to roll. He even provided extra gear when I forgot to bring mine. He is very knowledgeable and professional. The boat is well maintained and handles great even on the sound. Plenty of room for our family of four.
We rented Emil's boat for my birthday and had a BLAST! Emil is extremely professional, informative and amenable. The boat is kept up very well and is clean, fun and comfortable. We even had a minor hiccup along the way and he was great in helping us resolve it. I highly recommend renting from Emil and have a great time!
Emil was the perfect Captain for our voyage. I booked his boat and his time to be part of a TV promo shoot I was helping to produce.
In production, details and logistics can be a bit of a challenge and Emil was AMAZING with very accommodating with our requests. He was also very responsive and helpful for any questions I had. He was on-time and willing to go the extra mile for our crew. I would absolutely book him again.
I highly recommend him for your next boat voyage.
Emil was so great!
He arrived early and had the boat in the water when we rolled up. He brought extra vests and gave men the full orientation to the boat.
The boat drives really, really well. It's super clean and a very smooth ride. We topped out at around 35 knots with 4 on board - plenty fast for to run the length of lake Washington in under an hour or pull a skier when the weather is nice.
Emil was very competitive on price (especially given how new the boat is) and responses were nearly immediate.
I just hope he gives preference to repeat renters!
Emil's Bayliner was top notch. The boat was brand new. It really had everything that we needed for the day. Emil was more than accommodating and was very knowledgeable when explaining the operation of his boat. I would definitely rent from Emil again in a heartbeat. Thank you for a great day on the water!
