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.

                        The Rachel Leah update

Hi Everyone,

Hi everyone, the RL is headed home with those lobsters you all love!

We expect the boys tomorrow night-Thursday 7/28. We will begin unloading about 10:30 pm. With the heat of the day we need to unload the lobsters in the cool of the night, hence the late nights. Hope to see you on the dock.

Unfortunately because of a few, we will no longer accept checks.

Please bring a suitable container and please park in the gravel lot at the end of Pleasant Street.

Thank you,  Peter and Ellen

Here are the prices per pound:

1-6 pounds--------$8.25/LB

Over 6 pounds----$6.50/LB

Culls ---------------$6.50/LB
