Deep sea trips will target ground fish such as haddock, cusk, pollock, hake, red fish, whiting and mackerel.

The Yankee Clipper has a full galley aboard that serves breakfast, lunch, snacks and beverages throughout your trip. Food and drink purchases are additional from the cost of renting the boat, but are at average shore prices. Larger passenger vessels are required by Massachusetts State Law to carry a liquor license therefore passengers may not bring alcohol on board. We will have it available for purchase on board for passengers 21+ with proper valid ID.

The Yankee Pearl is a 42ft solid fiberglass downeast hull equipped with a new 610hp Cummins motor; with a large back deck and seating inside an enclosed cabin, there is plenty of space to keep 6 anglers comfortable and not crowded.
The vessel is outfitted with a new generator, modern electronics, 4 bunks, a bathroom, and plenty of tackle to make the most of your day on the water.
