    Beautiful 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.

    40' Motor Yacht "Miss Norma" in Winthrop, Massachusetts

    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!

    I offer sailing charters on the Emma Rose , a Cal 36. We sail around the islands of the Gold Coast of Boston’s north shore. I will come to Boston ,if I am available on your charter date.

    We had a great trip with Captain Allen. There wasn't a lot of wind, but he was working valiantly to catch any breeze that came our way. I also loved that he made it an interactive trip by allowing us to help out with various tasks. Captain Allen was knowledgeable, friendly and told great stories to make our trip memorable.

    Captain Allen is great! He told us some great stories and even explained the basics of sailing to us. We booked a 2 hour trip for our friend's birthday and had a lovely, relaxing time on the boat.
