    54ft Motor Yacht in Marina Del Rey, CA (Captain Included!!)

    I can’t say enough about how great this experience was. It was incredible and Izzy and crew made us feel so welcome, and really made our friend’s Birthday a special one. Izzy listened to what we wanted and made great recommendations as to Where to go and what would be most fun for our group. Communication before and during the trip was top notch and also made sure we felt safe and covered all safety angles with our entire group. I would strongly recommend Izzy and his beautiful boat to anyone looking to have an amazing time out on the water. If you’re celebrating or just looking to have a great time, book w/ Izzy. I definitely will again!!

    Incredible trip! The captain customized everything to exactly what we wanted! It was a bit windy so after a quick trip out on the ocean we came back to the Marina for a more comfortable experience. He played great music and had entertaining stories. Would love to do it again!

But we also felt he was just part of our group. The timing and itinerary were spot on. His hospitality, appetizers, and wine were all top notch! We will for sure be back and highly recommend. Thanks for a great time!!!
