Yacht Northern Lights

Step aboard our classic yacht for a Boston sightseeing boat tour! Yacht Northern Lights was inspired by the famous (and infamous) New England commuter yachts of the roaring twenties. These classic boats were commonplace along the New England coastline between Boston/Fall River and New York City. They were used by the ultra-rich for quick and fast transportation to Boston. Designed for speed and elegance, Northern Lights is outfitted with 800 horse power John Deere Diesels. 

Although is was designed for speed we will be traveling at safe comfortable “cruising speed”. This will allow you to enjoy a glass of champagne while gazing out at the beautiful Boston skyline or graceful, rolling harbor islands.  Yacht Northern Lights runs Boston Harbor boat tours, Harbor Island tours, Boston brunch cruise, sunset cruises and a variety of Boston music cruises.  So step aboard and see Boston in style and grace.
