Violet Frances is a custom built Maine boat, from Bruce Farrin and Sons. She has been highly maintained, and turns heads when we pull up to a dock. The extended cabin is comfortable for 6 plus,in case of a passing shower. You will have all the comforts of home, including a private head/ bathroom. Welcome aboard
We offer a unique and flexible way to see Casco Bay. From lighthouses to sunsets, or picnic lunches on a quiet Maine island, we are happy to accommodate everything from small corporate groups to social outings aboard the Violet Frances. Captain Steve has lived in Maine his entire life and knows Casco Bay well. He will make sure your experience is everything you hoped for and more, including pulling lobster traps and/or visiting a local oyster farm. Sailing out of Lower Falls Landing in Yarmouth, Maine you will have access to all of what Casco Bay and its beautiful Calendar Islands has to offer. Just minutes from down town Freeport and LLBean.
Stevens charter was great, we arrived early and were greeted by him at the dock ready to go. He was very professional and explained the safety/emergency protocols and gave us a nice tour of his wonderful boat. We had a lovely cruse and Steven was very helpful showing us around the islands with great knowledge of the area. I would highly recommend Steven and will book again if we are fortunate enough to be downeast again. Thanks for a great time!
