About Us

Somewhere between houseboat rentals and a private yacht charter is the river ship VAGABUM; a 65', all steel, any weather, ocean-experienced, mini-ship available for your Nashville boat rentals. It truly is a "Ship" versus houseboat, sailboat, pontoon or any other traditional lake or river boat. The RiverShip VAGABUM and Captain Russ Lee  provide an extremely unique and exciting boating rental experience on the beautiful Cumberland River & Old Hickory Lake from the Port of Hendersonville around Nashville, TN.
