Private Charters

Yankee Fleet offers the best options when it comes to booking your own boat for just your group. We can accommodate groups of 1 to 130 and offer private charters for:

  • Deep sea fishing (haddock, pollock, cusk, hake, red fish, halibut)
  • Overnight fishing (1 & 2 nights for deep sea species)
  • Tuna fishing
  • Striper fishing
  • Lobstering
  • Sunset Cruises

*Tuna, striper and lobstering available only for smaller groups, 4-6 people max*

What can be more enjoyable than to have the whole boat for just your group? We bet you will want to book for the following year before the day is over!

Great idea for a company outing!

For the best possible experience, we do recommend a private charter for groups of 20 or more. Give us a call to discuss the best option for you and pricing.

Our 100′ Yankee Freedom equipped with 40 bunks, a top deck for observing, a wide lower deck for fishing and a comfortable inner cabin with booths, tables and full service galley is your ride out to areas such as Fippennies and Cashes Ledge.

    Although these trips are offered and opened to the general public many friends, companies and other types of groups privately charter these overnights for just themselves. The Yankee Fleet staff can make this an easy and worthwhile process to be able to get a trip like this arranged. For information contact us at 855-5GO-FISH (546-3474).

  • Cruises from Scenic Cape Ann

    Getting out on the water always draws a crowd, and the sheltered waters and scenic vistas of the Annisquam River or the historic landmarks of Gloucester Harbor make a great setting for any type of event. When it’s hot and steamy on land what could be better than a cool relaxing sunset or evening cruise out of Gloucester.

    Gloucester has some of the most beautiful landmarks in Massachusetts that are viewed best by boat! Gloucester is America’s oldest seaport along with it’s surrounding waters.

    Cruises may decide to head around the Cape, which entails a cruise around Cape Ann in its entirety past the historic Twin Lights, scenic Rockport, Eastern Point and other local landmarks.

    The Gold Coast would include cruising Gloucester Harbor past Stage Fort Park, site of Gloucester’s first settlement by Magnolia, rich in 19th to mid 20th century history.

    Yankee Fleet can also help with suggesting caterers and music for your trip. We also offer a bar and bartender on board serving beer, wine and mixed drinks.

    We can adapt to your requirements!

    You can combine deep-sea fishing, scenic cruises and more. We will work with you on any custom charter. Call 855-5GO-FISH
