NEWS 2020-10-10: Now the both boats are off-duty and serviced for next summer. I thank my dear customers for last summer. Welcome again next summer 2021!
I will put Buster boat ready as soon as ice gets off from Näsijärvi lake. Merimuikku is still at Näsijärvi, but I will do my best to find a new harbour at Baltic Sea archipelago (Saaristomeri) in the beginning of 2021 season. I will inform when I know.
I wish you nice winter time and waiting for summer again!
Jukka K.

CORONA VIRUS EXCEPTIONS: I will be flexible with rental conditions next summer. I will give good cancellation policy, so do not let the Corona virus affect to your boat rental plans.
Please note, that harbours in Näsijärvi area are not crowded. Also you can easily find less crowded harbours at Saaristomeri area. So boating is very Corona-safe alternative to city holiday.

Explore Finland's beautiful lakes by a rental boat

You may have heard about beautiful Saimaa lake area and unique baltic sea arhipelago between Turku and Aland. It is a well kept secret, that you can find also a clean and beautiful lake area around Tampere city, only two hours from Helsinki. Näsijärvi lake area, situated mainly between Tampere and Virrat / Vilppula, is big enough to explore for several weeks, but you can do the main routes in one week.

We offer you two different motor boats for  rental  as bareboat, skipper yourself.

Merimuikku -steel family boat 

This 9,2m long boat is ideal for experienced skippers and for longer trips. It accommodates comfortably 4 adults + 1 child. Normal rental period is one week (saturday morning to friday evening), also weekends and other periods can be negotiated.

Muikunpoika Buster -aluminium boat

This small outboard motor boat is fine for beginners, because it is easy to handle and does not require former experience in boating.

Rent this boat for a day fishing or sightseeing  trip or for longer time. Camping equipment is available with the boat, if required.

The boats are approved for rental boat by Finnish Marine Authority and they are insured against  running aground, fire, theft and liability for third party. They are well equipped for a pleasant stay and cruise (see the links above for details).

Home harbour at Pimeesalmi

The boats home harbour is  Pimeesalmi boat harbour, located 25 km's north from Tampere (by road). Address for GPS: Pimeesalmentie 6, Ylöjärvi

The harbour is picturesque and well protected from winds. There are water- and fuel tank filling facilities available, as well as septic tank emtying facility and a small restaurant. Popular fishing waters and islands for camping are just off the harbour.

Delivery and reception of the boats may be arranged as well in Tampere for small fee. The Buster -boat is on a trailer and can be towed in lake Pyhäjärvi too (lake area south from Tampere). There is no navigable waterway between these two lake areas.

The Buster -boat you can rent as well with a trailer and tow it wherever you want within 100 km's radius.

Required skills

The smaller Buster -boat is suitable for beginning skippers. It is easy to handle and does not need former boating experience. However you must be familiar with reading a map in order to stay on safe waters. The outboard motor of the boat starts easily from a button by electric starter. Handling is easy even for the beginners, you can steer it like a car by a steering wheel. The boat is sturdy and safe and floats even when full of water. Because the light weight of the boat, it is easy to tow on the shore and can be also rowed by oars. Aluminium hull withstands small scratches when landing.

The Merimuikku -steel boat  is rented  for a skilled skipper only. You must have good skills and experience in navigation and handling skills with similar size of boats. The international leisure boat certificate is great to prove the required skills. The boat is relatively easy to handle and its steel-hull withstands small errors when mooring.  At least two persons are required as the crew. A couple of hours handling training can be arranged for extra fee, if required.

An introduction to the boat equipment, its usage and safety issues is always arranged when delivering the boat. So be prepared for about one-two hours time for the Merimuikku -boat  and about half-one hour for the Buster -boat. The instructions are given you also in written.

Please contact for a quotation. A boat may be available very quickly. Conditions and reference pricing on "prices, booking" page.
