Classic Harbor Line is the operating company of schooner Adirondack III and luxury yacht Northern Lights of Rowes Wharf. Operating sightseeing trips in Boston Harbor waters since 2013, Classic Harbor Line specializes in bringing beautiful, classic-style vessels to Boston’s waterways and creating special and memorable excursions.
Our Crew, including all captains, mates, and on-land representatives at Classic Harbor Line, are what make the experience on our beautiful yachts truly magical. We have maintained a consistent history of not only operating with a professional staff, but also with warm and inviting hosts. You will, without a doubt, have fantastic views of the city and find the boats beautiful and comfortable. What will surprise you and stay with you when you leave is the warm and special treatment you receive from our extraordinary team.
All of our captains are Coast Guard certified. The schooner captains all have a minimum 50-ton license and a sailing endorsement. Northern Lights captains all have a minimum 100-ton license. Our captains are also trained in first aid and CPR and are registered in an ongoing drug-testing program. Perhaps of equal importance, we require that our captains have an appreciation for quality service and are extremely charming hosts.
Mates on both the motor yacht and the sailing ship undergo extensive safety and marine training. Many of the schooner mates also have extensive sailing, racing and/or teaching experience on smaller sail vessels.
Our mates are widely remembered for their remarkable hospitality and personality, which is consistently praised in our customer reviews. They love talking with our guests, sharing information on the great city of Boston, and conveying their love for our classic-style yacht.

There are a number of behind-the-scenes crew members at Classic Harbor Line. They are the team who answer the phones, plan your event, greet you on the pier and is happy to tell everyone about the cool cruises and sails that we have to offer.
Everyone who buys a ticket for a trip gets to meet a Land Ambassador at check-in. They are full of information and they are the most hospitable people you will ever meet! Ask them for recommendations on dinner after or before a sail or a suggestion on a future excursion.
If you are interested in employment with Classic Harbor Line, we want to hear from you! We are always looking for experienced captains and mates with a strong background in hospitality and/or marine maintenance. Please feel free to forward a letter and resume to [email protected].
