Our Boat: Good Times

Our new 26-foot boat, Good Times, was custom built in 1995 by The Seaworthy Boat Co. in Maine, and was built to take the rigors of New England waters safely and comfortably. We completely refurbished the boat from bow to stern in early 2016. Now it's equipped with a new 325-hp MerCruiser® engine and new transmission. There's a private bathroom below deck. Today, Good Times is one of Boston's most productive charter sportfishing boats for striped bass, bluefish, and flounder. It has Coast Guard-approved lifesaving and first-aid equipment, and comfortably accommodates up to six passengers.
