Reserved a 17' Proline and paid $400 in advance. A week before getting the boat, they called and offered us a larger boat for the same price as the 17' would not be available. On the day we were supposed to get the boat, it would not run. They kept promising to have it fixed, but in the meantime would... More

We had booked a 21' Seaquest for vacation. We arrived to find no one there so we did not get a once on operation of the boat. Could not sign off on any existing damage to boat that I might have been charged for. No VHF. The boat was a mess and nothing worked. Battery was dead. Bilge pump on/off... More

When I looked at their website, the boats looked new and well maintained. However, the 21 ft Seafox we rented did not have the 225 hp motor, but a 150 hp motor, which did not power the boat well. It was difficult to keep the boat on plane in a light chop. Since we only went out 3 miles into... More

From the other reviews I see that Silver Palm must actually have some nice boats for rental and I guess we were just one of the unlucky ones. They obviously have a few crap boats they rent out for stupid tourists like us who paid up front and did not know what we would get. We rented a boat for... More

We rented the Mako 25 for 4 days and everyone was very helpful and accommodating. The boat was a workhorse and never let us down. We used it every day for fairly serious fishing in all sorts of weather. We would definitely rent here again.
