My wife and I truly enjoyed our experience renting a 20’ boat with Ship Shops. The staff was highly professional and friendly. They took the time to go over the safety features and controls of the boat. They provided excellent itinerary advice. The boat we rented was in excellent shape and included a bimini top, gps navigation, and anchor. I will absolutely be renting from them again!

We had a fabulous time using Ship Shops. Lynn did a great job explains the boat, equipment and giving suggestion where to go. It was pretty choppy but the kids had fun going over the crazy waves - just made it longer to go anywhere. We would come back again and we highly recommend. They were slightly lower in price than others as well. Thanks for a great day Ship Shops!

Had a fun day on the water on our Cape Vacation. Into to the boat was good, few small cosmetic items on the boat, broken Anchor compartment Hinge, worn out captains chair cushion. These kept me from a 5 star as they would take almost nothing to fix and seem silly to just leave like that. Engine and so on worked well. Nice GPS, good easy to dock pier when you bring it back.

Thanks for your comments. As far as cosmetic items in the boat rental business where they are used typically eight hours a day versus a pleasure use boat being 50 hours per year ,there are parts that show wear and tear particularly at the end of the season. Unfortunately nobody makes a boat designed to be a rental. We repair everything over the winter and start fresh in the spring. We stress that the motors and the mechanical gear are in excellent working condition. Hope to see you again next year! Thanks, Marty

We won a half-day boat rental from Ship Shops in a multi-prize raffle...the owners had donated it as part of a fundraiser for a cyclist participating in the Pan-Mass Challenge (entry fee of $5K per cyclist, money going to Dana-Farber Cancer Hospital). Only one of our party of 4 had ever spent time at the wheel in a power boat...but Dave's instructions were excellent and we felt ready to head out into Nantucket Sound. GPS and tracking on our cell phones added another layer of comfort. The boat was in great shape and everyone we dealt with at SS was so very friendly. It was also a spectacular weather day. We'll be back. Here's a tip of the hat for all you do for the community. Thank you.

We had the best time this week renting a boat from Ship Shops. We’ve rented boats in other states and in the Caribbean but Ship Shops really outdid themselves for us. We had several different ages to deal with in our group including my 93 year old mother. They were so solicitous of her. We cruised the beautiful Bass River and took a nice ride out into the ocean. It was a bit windy for us to go too far and that is always the chance you take when renting a boat, but we still had a wonderful time. The office crew and dock crew were great from beginning to end. Looking forward to our next visit to the Cape and our next rental with Ship Shops.
