Captree’s finest 90 foot open public fishing boat.
For many of us who cherish the history of the party boat fleet in this region, the arrival of a new boat is something you never want to miss. It only happens that one time when a new party boat makes her way to her dock and her first arrival into her berth. This time the new boat is being brought in by owner Captain Rob Andresen. The CAPTREE PRIDE, has a long history and has previously sailed as a fast whale watch boat out of Gloucester MA and can be seen sometimes in the background of the WICKED TUNA show.
The Captree Pride is Captree’s only 90 ft aluminum super cruiser that is safe and super stable for your comfort, including 4 separate men and women restrooms. The vessel is equipped with 1500 horsepower caterpillar diesels, state of the art fish finding equipment, and a great sound system with satellite radio. She is annually inspected by the US COAST GUARD for safety equipment including life jackets for both adults and children, life floats, fire fighting equipment, and EPIRB ( emergency – position – indicating -radio -beacon ) among many other safety features.
This being the fastest cruising boat at our dock gives you more fishing time which equals more catching! You also are able to relax either in our big spacious cabin where there is cushioned seating for 50 people, a vending machine with snacks, soft drinks, water, and even some tackle for sale if desired. We also offer complimentary morning coffee. You may also like to ride up on the upper sundeck with great views on the way out or in, passing the Fire Island lighthouse, beautiful homes along oak beach and Fire Island.
Captain Rob who owns the Captree Princess, purchased the boat in January of 2019 and has done some job prettying her up with bright blue paint on its hull and gold-leaf lettering.
The new Captree Pride will have a very well known and noted south shore fishing captain at its helm when she begins regularly sailing in the beginning of May, as Captain Kenny Higgins will be at the helm. The boat will be sailing daily at 7 am at that time, and no doubt her legacy of carrying fishermen and catching fish out of Captree will continue on.
