Why S&S?

Why Book with S&S Rentals?

S&S Rentals offers some benefits that our competitors don’t.unnamed (1) Here are some of the many reasons why S&S is the boat rental company of choice on the Upper Mississippi River!


5% Military Discount

S&S offers a 5% discount to any customer which has served in the U.S. Military – any boat, any time!
Note: One discount per rental, cannot be combined with any other discounts.


Prepayment Not Required

Other boat rental companies require the full payment of the rental charges ahead of time. S&S only asks for a deposit, with the balance due only when you are fully satisfied with the condition of the boat you will be renting, and ready to head out on the river.


Transferrable Deposit

If your plans change – even on the date of your departure – your deposit can be transferred one time to another rental period of your choice (subject to availability of other boats).


Deposit Refund

Your deposit is refunded to you the day you return from your trip (other companies take up to 2-4 weeks to refund your deposit).





Marina & Boat Accessibility

S&S’s marina facilities are fully accessible to customers in wheelchairs.10730796_10152892776869672_3471420881862386001_n As well, our Monticello houseboat has corridors and bathrooms wide enough for wheelchairs.

“S&S has been owned and operated by the Stirn Family since 1960. We don’t brag about being ‘the biggest or the best.’ We treat our customers how we want to be treated when on vacation. ‘I want to pay when I arrive, I want my deposit back before I leave, and I want flexibility if an emergency arises.’ That is what sets S&S apart from other rental companies!” -Greg & Sue Stirn, owners of S&S Rentals
