We rent boats for any time period that fits your needs – for an afternoon half-day, daily, multi-day or multi-week.

Our renters often return year after year to enjoy all that boat renting on Lake Winnipesaukee has to offer. Some are renting camps and rent a boat for the week to keep at their dock. Others are visiting on day trips and seeking fun in the sun. You can tour Lake Winnipesaukee at your leisure, or ride to the far sides of the lake and have lunch in Wolfeboro or Alton Bay. Boating to Weirs Beach is nearby and there ¡s plenty to do once ashore.

Some things to consider – frequently asked questions

The Boat: Our pontoon and deck boats are great for touring Winnipesaukee or fun watersports. They are a turn-key start, power trim, and a built-in swim platform with ladder. All of our boats are inspected by the Department of Safety, and we include appropriate life jackets, throw cushion, paddle, and automatic fire extinguisher in order to be Coast Guard compliant. We’ll make sure you have the proper instruction since you’ll be the captain!

MULTI-DAY RENTALS: We require you keep the boat overnight at your own dock if you are renting for multiple days. We do not keep the rental boats at the marina overnight for multi-day bookings. All rental boats must be kept on Lake Winnipesaukee and cannot be trailered to other lakes or areas.

JET SKI RENTALS: Our jet-ski rentals are for two-hour, Full day, or multi day periods. Price is $150 for two hours, $400 for a full day. Operators must be 21 or over and have a boaters license, and maximum two people per jet ski. Safety equipment is included, and renter pays for gas and $500 security deposit.
License Requirement: You must have a NASBLA approved boaters license in order to operate a boat in the State of New Hampshire with any engine greater than 25HP. We do offer a boat that has a 25hp motor that does not require a license, but we also have the authority to administer a 14-day Temporary Boating Certificate that permits rental of all our boats.

Below is a link to the New Hampshire Boaters Guide that you can use to study for the test. We strongly recommend that you allow a couple hours to study and take the test prior to your rental pick up(this test can only be taken at the marina). There is a $20 fee to take the test, pass or fail. If you do fail, you will have to wait 24 hours before trying again.

Additional Terms & Rental Process: No pets are allowed on boats. You will be charged for a lake map ($9.95) which you can keep as well as the amount of gas used. Water ski and tube packages are available and cost $30 per day. Rental times are from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and there is a late fee if you don’t return on time. It will take about half an hour after you return for the check-out process. We have on-site parking and are conveniently located in Meredith, 10 minutes from RTE 93 and walking distance from town. There is a $1000 security deposit at the time of rental, which will be returned if the boat is not damaged. Note that this is an expensive craft and insurance is not available-you are responsible for anything that happens during your rental period, even if the amount exceeds your security deposit. Cancellation policy: Cancellation within four days of rental forfeits deposit unless we can re-rent the boat, in which case we will return your deposit. We all are subject to mother nature, and if it happens to be too stormy (our determination) when you arrive we will return your deposit.
