Cost of boat on Inle Lake?

Hello! My wife and I leave for Myanmar in two days, and our trip will include three days at Inle lake, staying in Nyaungshwe. We want to explore and photograph around the lake. What is the cost to hire a boat for the day? I understand it is always cheaper to share the cost with other people, but I've found most people like to cram too much into a day. Our style of exploring is more in-depth and slower paced, so I like to hire my own transport. Thank you!

Yes we were quoted (and paid) 15,000 for the whole boat, whether out from Nyaung Shwe or for a few hours from a lake hotel. The fuel prices have increased, also be aware some cheaper boats sound pretty sick, our hotel told us 3 levels, best being hupin hotel boats (dearest too) but if anybreak downs they send another boat to pick you up and even get you to the hospital should you need it. The fact this was mentioned makes me wonder about accidents and hospital trips. Didn't see any over 4 seperate days out and about :) We had the middle level :)
