Goodhue & Hawkins Navy Yard is home to the premier boat rental fleet on Lake Winnipesaukee! We have established a reputation of offering the newest, largest and most luxurious boats available in the Lakes Region. Our fleet of runabouts consists entirely of the elite line of Cobalt Boats, the best built bowrider in the world, while our pontoon fleet consists of Marker One (Cobalt Boats’ pontoon line) Sanpan and Sweetwater boats. Available accessories include paddleboards, wakeboards, waterskis and tubes.
You must have a NASBLA approved boater’s license to operate a boat in the State of New Hampshire with an engine larger than 25 HP. However, in order to better serve our customers, we can administer an online test so that you may obtain a 14-day Temporary Boating Safety Certificate.
Below is a link to the NH Boater’s Guide that you can use to study for the test. We strongly recommend that you allow 1-2 hours to study and take the exam any time prior to your rental pick up. There is a $20 fee to take the test, pass or fail. If you do fail, you must wait 24 hours before trying again. Please call us for more information on this requirement or to discuss your options.
Our fleet does include two 18-foot pontoon boats with 25 HP engines that can be operated without a boater’s license.
