Sailboat Rental

The ability to rent a sailboat is a nice option for those who wish to use a boat for a short duration or escape some of the costs of boat ownership. Unfortuantely most rental opportunities are limited to larger boats at charter companies or smaller dinghies from only a few vendors. For those looking to rent (bareboat charter) larger yachts, please see our Charters page. For dinghy sailors, the choices are fewer, but are also listed below:


Dinghy Rental (boats less than 21 feet)


The following boats will accomodate 1-6 people and some providers will deliver the boat to several different lakes within a given area. Rentors are expected to be experienced with the type of craft rented and follow applicable laws and regulations. It may be prudent to contact your insurance provider to see if your current policies extend to liabilities and damages occuring on rented boats.
