    26' Brownell Powerboat for 14 people in Newport

    We booked a three hour cruise for our bachelorette group of 8 and had a BLAST! The boarding process was super easy, location was easy to find and get to. Was a major plus that we could bring coolers of drinks and food to have on board. Our captain Eric was awesome and super chill. He brought us back for bathroom breaks several times and helped us have a super smooth cruise.
