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
