Sail Duration

There is a two and a half-hour minimum for Weddings. Please note that for wedding functions, we require an extra 1/2 hour charter time in addition to the standard two-hour minimum, to allow for set up. We suggest that you plan at least a 3 1/2 hr. charter for your wedding. You’ll be glad you did!

What’s Included

A private charter includes the exclusive use of the vessel, captain, crew and someone to serve your drinks. Food and beverages are additional. You will have the boat to yourselves. There will be no other passengers other than your group. Group size is limited to 49.


Your menu can be as simple or as lavish as you like. We can even arrange and serve a lobsterbake while we anchor in a quiet cove in the harbor. Or, how about “clam chowda and a fresh lobsta roll?” We also have lots to choose from off of our À la carte catering menu, all provided by the Gloucester House Restaurant. You can use our caterer or your own. The menu selection is entirely up to you.


We have a liquor license, so you cannot bring your own alcohol onboard. We offer water, soft drinks, beer, ale, wine, prosecco, sparkling rosé, rum punch, and an upgraded wine list.
