Why Own a Boat When Renting a Boat Is So Much Cheaper?

Owning a boat isn't cheap. There are many things to consider when you decide to purchase a water craft - these include base cost of the vessel, insurance, maintenance, storage, trailer and trailer license, and winterization. When renting a boat at BomBay Boat Rental Company at the Lake of the Ozarks, you are able to bypass all of this. BomBay takes the costs of ownership and makes it so that you can enjoy days on the water, for minimal cost. We will even deliver the boat to wherever you desire!

For the average cruiser you can expect to pay the following:

  • $25,000 to $40,000 for vessel
  • Filling up the gas tank is about $150 - $200
  • Sales tax of around 4% - 7%
  • Title fee of about $30, $3/foot for registration, and about $100 for insurance per year
  • About $1 - $1.50/foot to store a boat in a boat dock PER DAY!
  • About $300/per year for cleaning, maintenance, and all the extras
  • Winterizing/storage could be $1000 or more!
  • Boat safety equipment such as lifejackets, flares, fire extinguisher and dock lines could cost $200 or more

As you can see - owning a boat is very expensive. With our boat membership programs, we offer a plan for boats and jet-skis. This gives you the flexibility and a much more cost effective way of enjoying boating at the Lake of the Ozarks. See below for information on what our plans have to offer:

Boat Memberships

 Boat memberships are offered in 3 different plans:
  • Week Day Plan

Our many locations give you the ease of access you desire and we will DELIVER! With our memberships you may cancel at any time with a 60 day written notice.

Jet-Skis are very popular and we want you to have the absolute best time on the water.
