The Boat Concierge is a Sarasota, Florida-based business thatsimply puthelps you have more fun on your boat. 

Lifelong Southwest Florida fisherman, Capt. Gabriel Lippert, has hand-selected a team of Sarasota/Bradenton’s most knowledgeable and dependable boating professionals to manage, on your behalf, the many not-so-fun parts of boat ownership, including prepping, cleaning, maintenance, repairs, and transporting. 

All Return to Dock services are performed at the point of your return. Hop off your boat, hand us the keys, and we’ll flush the engine while it’s still warm, prep your fish while they’re still more than fresh, and rinse your boat and gear free of the harsh saltwater. Delivery of your gear and prepared/bagged/labeled fish to your designated location is also available on request.
