    Harris 220 Pontoon Rental on Mountain Island Lake, Charlotte, NC

    The boat ran perfectly and is in great condition. The pickup location is convenient for driving in and the dock is in a visible spot on the lake near Mountain Island. The boat was gassed up and ready to go when we pulled up. The kids had a blast with the tube. We'll be back for sure!

    This isn't your typical rental boat! Relax, cruise, play or party in comfort and style with a chartered high speed tritoon on Lake Norman (The Lake).

    Mark made our building trip so amazing. No one had been out on the boat so this was our first time renting a boat. He was so nice and had everything set up from the first day that we communicated before we even stepped on the boat. This was the best trip that we had taken and had a lot of fun, I would recommend him to everyone 100% if you want to have a great time and feel safe.

    Ski, Tube, Fish & Fun on Lake Lanier

    We decided to spend a week on the lake and ended up renting the entire time. Art's boat offered us everything we needed from skiing, tubing, fishing, and just cruising around having fun. With plenty of power and space for people...this is the boat if you're looking to have a lot of fun! One added bonus was the pick up and drop off. Art met us at the boat and we were on the water within 5 minutes and we had no lines to wait in!
