    Book the Classic Bertram 26 Open Sport Motor Yacht in Boston, Massachusetts

    Great tour, showed us around all of Boston and explained each place. For newcomers to Boston it was very nice. We got to see the city as well as go to an island to swim in the water afterwards. The boat was very spacious and clean allowing us to have a great 2 hours in the water. Big thanks to Patrick for showing us a great time.

    Charter Beneteau Oceanis 50 Sailing Yacht Charter in Manchester-by-the-Sea Massachusetts

    We did a four hour excursion. Went along the coast from Manchester to Salem and then near the islands. Everyone loved it. Bringing younger children we might opted for a shorter trip. If it was just the parents we would’ve gone longer.

    Beautiful 22 foot long Sea Ray Cuddy Cabin Cruiser for rent in Boston

    Our trip with Angel was we exactly what we were looking for. We got picked up from in the seaport and had a nice 2 hour sunset cruise in the harbor islands. Angel was incredibly accommodating, and very responsive to our messages. You can go to the beach, go fishing, or just tour around and have a nice dinner. He made us feel right at home on his boat. We would book again.

    Daniel was extremely accommodating and responsive leading up to and during our trip with him! I asked if he could pick us up from near where we live in East Boston and he had no problem with it, which made everything so much easier. He was a great captain for the night and brought us all around the city. The boat was beautiful and I can’t wait to go out again in the future!
