Our Mission Statement
“Long Island Boat Rentals strives to offer safe, no-hassle, cost effective boating to our customers”. We have a solution for you; whether you are someone who wants to become a boater, a casual-boater on vacation, a lifetime-boater without a boat, or you just want to get out and enjoy being on the water using a licensed captain.
Not only do we want to provide premium boats for our customers to enjoy, but we also want to ensure that our customers are safe boaters. That is why we provide access to boating education. We encourage our customers to earn the New York State Safe Boating Certificate and offer access to practical on the water training to ensure safe boating practices.
Long Island Boat Rentals provides premium Powerboat Rentals and Private Yacht Charters.* Our fleet is separated into Powerboat Rentals, ranging from 13 – 24 feet and Private Yacht Charters, with yachts ranging from 37 – 50 feet.
LI Boat Rentals was founded by the former CEO of Circle Line Downtown – JB Meyer. As a lifelong resident of the Port Washington area and huge boating fan, he realized there is tremendous demand for families and friends to experience the pleasures of boating. After years of working through the details of the business, he started Long Island Boat Rentals, LLC.
In July 2013, Christian Gordon became a partner in LI Boat Rentals, taking over as President, to work along with JB, who remains a partner, to expand the business to new heights. Christian, also a life-long resident of Port Washington, has been on both sail and power boats since he was eight. His passion for sailing led him to become an accomplished sailor in several boat classes. He later became a sailing instructor at the Seawanhaka Corinthian Yacht Club in Oyster Bay, and in 2012 became head instructor managing the Junior Sailing program. He is a US Sailing Certified instructor and a current member of the US Power Squadron. Understanding the time and cost of maintaining a boat in the New York area, Christian is excited about the opportunity to offer many people the pleasure of boating without the commitment.
As a company, Long Island Boat Rentals, LLC will strive to make boating affordable and easy as possible, so New Yorkers can experience a carefree day on the water. No longer does boating come with the expenses of maintenance, winter storage and dockage.
Christian will continue the work JB started, expanding the LI Boat Rental business and services for the benefit of our customers.
