The Rita B.

Named for my Grandmother, Rita Burnham, the Rita B. is a very comfortable 28' Crowley Beal, Maine-built boat. Originally designed as Maine lobster boats, boats designed on Beal Island, Maine have proved themselves worthy for all manner of work and play; fishing and cruising. There is no more appropriate boat from which to experience the charm of the Maine Coast.

We have a functioning bathroom, called a head on a boat, it's not the most luxurious accommodation, but it certainly works in a pinch. All required safety gear is maintained in excellent condition and safety is our number one concern.

We also offer deep sea fishing charters in and around Casco Bay, Maine.
