We partner with the Ridges Resort on Lake Chatuge, The Rtiz-Carlton Lodge at Reynolds Plantation & Boathouse Marina on Lake Oconee. One of our more popular services is our delivery service. If you are renting a lake house in North Georgia, Western North Carolina, Western South Carolina, or Tennessee we will bring the boat/jet ski to you.

The folks at YHWS were very responsive, and I had the pleasure of dealing with Ben Stevens as my sales representative. Ben responded at the times he said he would, and it gave me a great impression of the dealership. I highly recommend them if you're looking to purchase a watercraft.

We are not experienced boaters, but we decided to try to rent a boat. Stuff was very helpful. Check in was quick. Service was great. We had small boat for 4 people for 2 hours ($175 plus insurance and gas), which plenty. We really enjoyed it.

I had an amazing family day on Lake Oconee enjoying the boat from Young Harris Watersports. The online reservation and check-in process was really smooth. The waiver was also user friendly. Upon arrival we were greeted by ZK and he gave us great service. We truly appreciated his attentiveness and guidance. We rented the ski boat from 9:30am-1:30pm. It fit 6 people comfortably. We were able to bring food, drinks and coolers on board. If you’re looking for a fun family day I highly suggest renting from this place.

Do not rent a boat from this marina. My family rented a pontoon boat on July 19. You have to give them a $300 deposit on your credit card. Before getting on the boat they go over it to confirm any damage. The prop was very chewed up. They documented as such. When we returned they said the prop was chewed up. I said I know. It was when we left the marina. They said they would have a manager call me on Monday the 20th. It is now August 3rd. I have called numerous times and no one will call me back. I still have not received my $300 deposit.

I have rented from them over the years and they always do a great job. Very nice boat and very good service. We were at the Lake Chatuge location, as they are no longer at the marina and have their own setup. Easy in and out, no long paperwork, a real pleasure to rent from them. We had a tub as well, which was great fun.

We greatly enjoyed renting our boat from Young Harris water sports. The staff was friendly and extremely efficient. It took under five minutes to get onto the boat to get our captain’s overview. The tritoon was new And very fast. My only complaint is it the triple to really only fit one adult male.

I paid over $650 for a one day rental of a ski boat and float from Young Harris Water Sports. Overall it was a very bad experience. The boat was in pretty bad shape in my opinion. Lots of scratches and quite dirty. Some items on the boat were broken including the radio. When I rented the boat over the phone they took my reservations. Only in an email later did they mention that I would be charged $150 for delivery and surprise, $25 to have it refueled plus gas. Wish they had mentioned that earlier. When I had some questions about the rental management was difficult to deal with and not flexible at all. Overall really bad experience. Too many other places that I trust to rent boats. DO NOT RENT FROM YOUNG HARRIS!!!!!

I am sorry your experience with our company was not what you expected. Our goal is to always provide a great rental experience for our guests. As company policy we always ask our customers to read the reservation email to make sure our reservation agent did not forget to provide all of the conditions regarding our rental procedures and fees. I am not sure why once you received the email and did not agree to the terms you still rented. However the $25 dollar refueling option is not required. You are more than welcome to refuel the craft before returning it to the pick point on our delivery lakes. We also provide a comprehensive list of delivery fees on our website for all our delivery lakes, which all have a delivery fee. We do strive to provide the newest and cleanest boats in the rental market. Please reach back out to management and ask for Lance. We would be happy to provide you with a rental credit for a future rental with our company to earn your business once again.

I have rented jet skis and ski boats from Young Harris Water Sports several times over the past few years and never had a problem until yesterday. I carefully planned a trip to take my family jet skiing. The website indicated that jet skis were available on the day & time we planned to go. I called the office three times in the week before the trip and spoke to three different people about my plans to rent jet skis on Thursday afternoon. I called the office on my way and was assured that as long as we arrived before 3:00, we could get a full two hours on the water. We arrived at 2:45 to find no one on the dock, despite the sign on the door indicating that their hours are 10:00AM-6:00PM. I called the office & was told someone would be there within 10 minutes. When no one was there 20 minutes later, I called again and was assured someone was on the way. I called a third time and asked for some compensation for my inconvenience and for the fact that my time on the water would be cut short and was told that the company is only open on weekends this time of year! How is it that no one who answers the phones and makes reservations know this?!?! I understand that nothing is perfect and that everyone makes mistakes, but they were not even willing to give me a discount for their incompetence. I took my family 5 minutes down the road to the other rental place on Lake Chatuge where we were quickly accommodated without a reservation (and it was less expensive than YHWS). I am now a dedicated customer of the other business. Sorry Young Harris Water Sports, but you have lost my business.

Booked them through Ritz Carlton at Lake Oconee and everyone from the people on trephine line to the guide who taught me about operating the boat as well as explaining the routes on the lake were all super friendly and helpful. the boat was in excellent condition and we had an amazing time, they were even able to extend my reservation time when called them while on the boat. Would definitely go back for another trip.

We recently rented a wake boat for the first time from Young Harris Water Sports. The dropoff and pickup at Lake Burton were super easy - right on time and without any issue. The staff was great getting the boat in and out of the water, and also in explaining all of the boat's features. The boat itself was a lot of fun. It made our stay at the lake really great, and we will absolutely rent from Young Harris again.
