F.V. Rachel Leah


The R.L. is a 77 foot Offshore lobster boat which makes over 30 trips a year to the rich fishing grounds of Georges Bank. She was one of the five boats featured in the Discovery series, “Lobster Wars”. When she is not out on the fishing grounds she is tied up at the end of Pleasant St. In Hyannis, Mass. If  you are in the area you are welcome to come down and watch us unload and talk to us about the in and outs of lobstering. If you are interested in buying directly from the boat,  please bring along a bag or a container suitable for your purchase. The lobsters we catch tend to average between 2 and 6 pounds. We do not catch many lobster smaller than 2 pounds, as a matter of fact we catch more lobster over 6 pounds. . The times we off load vary, so please check in on this web page for the next time we will be unloading.
