Home Port - Little Cranberry Island, Maine
A beautiful little island off of Mount Desert Island, Maine. We base our company from here and most of our captains and crew either lobster fish or work in the boating community amongst some of the most beautiful, but treacherous waters of the North Atlantic. Our daily life consists of dealing with the water around us, weather conditions, tides, surf... Not unlike being on a boat. Look us up on your charts or check out the island at islesford.com.
Full Circle Service
We are a confident team of Captains and Crew who know boats and water. We pride ourselves in understanding that the boats we deliver will be handed back to the owners with a list of what maintenance we undertook and projected maintenance needed for smooth running of the vessel, similar to a survey. Our navigational equipment is state of the art and all captains are well educated in the Nobeltec or mapquest programs on the laptops that the company sends with them on each voyage. They will also be well versed on the navigational equipment on the boat.
Prices range according to length of trip and we that you will find us very affordable. The boat owner will be responsible for the transportation costs of the captain and crew. We try to work with the boat owner to keep costs to a minimum. Our ability to move boats around the country is uncanny.
