We try to rent here once or twice a summer. We have rented everything from a 16ft to 24ft Whaler. The staff is incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. We can't say enough about Ship Shop, even if you are a beginner, they will set you in the right direction and if you know what you are doing - it's a blast!

Always professional and helpful! Care taken with boat and billing. Always do what they say they will do but consult before completing work! Highly recommend!

We rented a boat from them recently for a 2 hour rental. We got there 1/2 hour early and they got us out quickly so we could experience more time on the river. The boat and equipment was awesome. We were well prepped by them before going out and as a result we had an awesome time. They gave us tips on some beaches we could go to along with other sites. They are a first class operation and look forward to going there again next year. If you have the chance, we highly recommend renting from them.

We rented a boat for 2 hours and loved our experience! Service was amazing-they were extremely friendly on the phone & in person. Gave us a great tutorial on where to take the boat & how to operate the boat safely. Great time swimming and picnicking on the 24 foot boat. Would definitely recommend and use them again.

This is your 'go to' spot for boaters in the Bass River area. I have done business with Ship Shops for more decades than I would care to admit to....anyway, they are the spot for boaters to fuel up or if you need something. You can rent a power boat in the 20 ft range for a half day or a whole day. I owned boats that I moored or kept on a slip in the Bass River for decades. I got a tow from them years before GPS and cell phones.... I lost a shear pin and was stuck in open water. I don't remember how they came about finding me, but I vividly remember that they showed up in a workboat and towed my sorry bilge-rat self in. That was years and years ago....but to this day, Ship Shops is the dependable place and I would never go elsewhere. They are a small local company that is honest and fair.
