Default Boat Rental - Coconut Grove

Anyone have any suggestions on renting a boat from Dec 26th to Dec 30th?

We are a group of about 8-10 parents wanting to watch our kids compete in the annual Orange Bowl Opti Regatta.

We are coming up from Grand Cayman, are all experienced and have boats of our own, and we are familiar with the waters (to a point) from previous trips to the same event (and others) in the area.

We rented a 27ft Contender last trip and the boat was perfect for our needs.

Shoot me a PM if you might be interested in helping us out!


Thanks

Not sure that this Scout would fit the bill. but it was as close as I could find without them requiring their captain. It looks like about $1800 a week so you might get a price from them for 4 days. Good luck.

10 parents plus kids on a 27' boat? Sounds risky if that's the case.
Just google boat rental companies in Miami and Miami Beach. Several will pop up.

Thanks for the responses fella’s. The Scouts probably too small unfortunately. Will have a hunt around that site.

It will be adults in the boat for the most part, likely about 8, but I was playing it safe with 10 - there’s always a few “ring-in’s” lol wanting to watch their kids too.

If anyone is interested in renting their boat for a bit of extra cash let us know!

My neighbor rents out his deck boat. It's in Fort Lauderdale but a pretty quick run to Miami, it holds 12.

There is a group that rents scouts out of Dinner Key Marina in Coconut Grove. They have about 6 of them up to 25'. This would probably be your best bet dont know if they have a capacity for 10 but you could always rent 2 boats.

You can also search a few on Boatsetter.com
They usually have a good inventory in the area. Pontoons would likely hold your party and be a cheaper option.

Thanks very much for the input fella’s. We are familiar with Dinner Quay which is just down the road from the Yacht Club.
