Top gepflegte Boote und ein sehr sympathischer und fairer Vermieter! Wir hatten ein 30 PS Boot und sind nach einer ausgiebigen Anweisung in das Boot in der Region zum Angeln gefahren. Andreas kann hierzu auch jede Menge Tipps geben und gute Spots nennen. Die Region bietet sich gut zum Jiggen und Schleppen an. Gerne kommen wir jederzeit wieder und empfehlen Mani Boats weiter. Vielen Dank an Andreas und Sabrina!

We rented the Myra boat last minute for 2 people and had the best day of our entire italy/Greece trip. The team at Mani boats were absolutely wonderful supplying many places on our map for us to go and explore. The boat itself was incredible and a brand new motor with no issues and very easy to use as we had very little boating experience. We drove from limeni for the day and were so glad we got to explore another side of the peninsula. We spent the day roaming from place to place, dropping anchor to swim off the boat, snorkel as well as sunbaking and reading our hooks on the boat. We were lucky enough to see a turtle and flying fish! They provided us a cooler with ice which kept our drinks and food ice cold. They were super flexible with us on the day and transparent about pricing with no attempt to upsell or take advantage. A beautiful couple inside and out running the business we cannot wait to return again one day! Go see mani boats if you are in the area.

We had an awesome day on the water with the boat from Andreas and Sabrina! Both of them are warm, helpful and very sweet. Communication and reservation of the boat was easy and fast via WhatsApp for the same day. Andreas gave us all the boat relevant instructions and Sabrina showed us the best spots in Google maps. They got us a cooling box with ice for our drinks which was really nice. We went down the coast line, stopped and swam several times (even in caves) in crystal clear water and had a beautiful day on the water. The price was as agreed beforehand and we couldn't have asked for nicer hosts 🙂 When we are back we will definitely get a boat from Mani boats again.

We rented a boat for the day and the experience was superb. The owner Andreas shared all the spots worth to visit, which were a lot! It was a fantastic day and the coast looks amazing from the boat. The boat was spacious, clean, big motor, they also gave us an extra piece of tent to cover the boat from the sun, which was great. The customer service is 5* Andreas also gave us several tips on restaurants in the area. We highly recommend Mani boats.
