TWISTED ANCHOR BOATS' RENTALS
 

​ At Twisted Anchor Boats, we take pride in the cleanliness and condition of our boats as they are kept in tip top.  And we have the best informed and friendliest customer service.

 Safety is our utmost priority while you are on the water.  Florida implemented new safety livery laws, SB606,  and we are in compliance offering the option for our client to purchase insurance to cover the rental period, a Boat Livery Permit as well as NASBLA Safety Certified, specific insurance requirements and have all approved and required USCG safety equipment onboard.

We are available at all times throughout the whole rental process.  From the initial contact, to returning to the dock, we only want the best experience for our clients.
