3 Reasons to Rent a Jet Ski from BomBay Boat Rental Company!

If you haven't got the chance to rent a jet ski at the Lake of the Ozarks you have got to make it a priority! There is still plenty of warm weather left this year and NOW is the perfect time to get out on a jet ski, especially if you have never had the chance to. During the fall at the Lake of the Ozarks, there are far fewer boats out on the water and there is a good chance you will have a portion to the lake all to yourself which makes riding a jet ski even more fun! Not familiar with jet skis? Here are three reasons you will LOVE riding one of our jet skis!

1. They are easy to get out on the Lake.

Our jet skis are lightweight, and the compact design makes it easy to get them into the water and get you on your way. Another great bonus is the fact that they are extremely fuel efficient. That means lots of cruising around the Lake for less money spent on gas.

2. They are easy to ride.

Even for a beginner, jet skis are fairly easy to operate. The Sea-Doo GTI 130's exceptional power-to-weight ratio makes it a more nimble, playful, and effortless ride, every time. Perfect for the entire family. It's light, colorful, and it's the most fun personal watercraft on the Lake! We know that as soon you take a ride on our personal watercraft you will want to get out on the water again and again!

3. They are FUN!!!

You'll find this out very soon after you begin riding, but before you do, we can assure you that you will have the time of your life. They are fast and put you a little bit closer to the water than you are on a boat. You can get into smaller areas, letting you explore more. It's extra fun to rent a few with friends and race to all of the cool spots that the Lake of the Ozarks has to offer. After you jump a couple of wakes from some of the bigger boats out there, your adventurous spirit will be hooked.

What are you waiting for? There is still plenty of time to get out on the water and have some FUN! The weather is still warm but cooler temperatures on their way! Riding a jet ski is so much fun and BomBay Boat Rental Company makes it easy to get out on the water. We have three convenient locations to rent a PWC at the Lake of the Ozarks and we deliver too!

It's a Beautiful Time of Year to Go Boating!

Fall weather is almost here and it's a gorgeous time of year to go boating at the Lake of the Ozarks! The scenery is spectacular, the lake is quiet, and BomBay Boat Rental Company offers some of the best boat rental rates at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Continue reading to find out some of the best reasons to go boating this fall!

Scenic Beauty

The Lake of the Ozarks is surrounded by natural beauty. Throughout the fall you will be able to watch the leaves change color and appreciate the sights and smells of the season. It's a lot easier to travel longer distances when the water is calm, so you can spend the entire day exploring the area and enjoying the scenery.

Calmer Lake

The lake sees a lot less traffic this time of year due to so many people being busy with school activities. This means a much calmer ride on the water and you've got lots of room to enjoy the lake. There will even be days when you are the only boater in sight and it seems like you are on your own private lake. If you happen to enjoy fishing, the calm water is much more inviting to the fish and you should have luck with them biting.

Enjoy Resturants and Attractions with Fewer Crowds! 

Most of the lakeside attractions, bars, & restaurants are still open seven days a week, so you'll have lots of great spots to make pit stops around the lake. There are some great boating events coming up over the next couple of months too. Two specific events to look forward to include:

Fall is a great time of year to get out on the water because you will still have a lot of warm weather and fewer boats and crowds. There is still a lot to do on the water and renting a watercraft at the Lake of the Ozarks is a great way to access events, restaurants, and more! The gorgeous scenery alone is a reason enough to want to get out on the water!

Renting Vs. Boat Ownership

For anyone that loves to get out on the water at the Lake of the Ozarks, the question of whether you should own or rent a boat at the Lake Ozarks has probably come up. Some say there is no better joy than owning a boat but at Bombay Boat Rental Company we like to say there is no better joy than taking a boat out on the water without all hassle that comes along with owning a boat. Unless you are willing to fork over a lot of time, money, and effort renting a boat is typically the best option. If owning your own boat has your been your bucket list for years, before you write the check, be sure to ask yourself these questions.

How often will you use the boat?

One big regret of boat owners is the fact that they don't get a chance to get out on the water enough. If you know for a fact that you will be boating every single week, then this may not be a worry for you. On the other hand, if you only have a few days here and there that you can find the time to enjoy a day on the lake, it will probably be a lot cheaper to rent a boat when you decide to go out.

Also, if you don't have a lake near your home and must travel to go boating, renting will allow you to boat wherever you go without having to bring the watercraft along with you.

Bombay Boat Rental Company have amazing membership opportunities that will keep you out on the lake all season long. There are weekday plans, 7-day plans, and family or shared memberships. You can join strictly for waverunner rentals, or get a boat rental membership and have access to every type of boat we rent plus our jet ski rentals. Payments are only made during the 6 months that the season includes.

Which kind should you buy?

Different kinds of boats are good for various types of usage and passengers. Buying means you have to pick out one. Renting means that you can use a different boat every time that you go out, depending on what you have in mind for that trip. BomBay Boat Rental Co. offers ski boats, tritoons, and jet skis and you have the choice to take a different watercraft everytime you rent with us.

How much are you willing to spend?

As with any large purchase, if you have been considering buying a boat, you have probably figured out exactly how much you can afford to spend on it. The problem is that most people only think about the purchase price. Boats aren't just a monthly payment. They cost a lot of money every time that you take them out. Here are a few of the expenses you are in store for beyond the asking price.
  • Title, registration, & insurance: These are already taken care of when you rent a boat. 
  • Maintenance: A lot can go wrong with a boat when it is out on the water, and fixing it usually doesn't come cheap. BomBay Boat Rental Co. offers the newest and best-maintained fleet on the water. You will always get a dependable boat rental from us, and if something does go wrong, we'll take care of it. 
  • Storage: If you don't have a place at your home that you can keep your boat, you will need to rent a dock slip rented to keep it in. Don't forget about storage in the off-season too. It will need to be winterized and pulled out of the water in the winter. Renting a boat means that you simply drop it off when you are done and we'll take care of the storage details. BomBay Boat Rental Company Boat Membership 

If owning a boat has been a dream of yours for years and years and you have plenty of time and money to invest in one, then go for it! But if you would rather sit back and enjoy a carefree day of boating on the water and let the experts worry about the high cost of ownership and maintenance costs, then our Lake of the Ozarks boat rentals are the best option. We offer a wide range of watercraft rentals and we look forward to helping you have a great boating experience at the Lake of the Ozarks, hassle free!
