Living The Dream

After two decades of sailing and pulling lobsters from Maine's waters, Capt. Phil created MCC to share his passion for this place and for a way of life that exists here in Maine.  Between sailing tall ships and commercial fishing in Alaska, Phil always returned to Maine for the boating season to run charter boats from the Kennebunk River.   After years of running boats that tended to offer the same routine trips, the dream to run a boat that offers more customized adventures was born.  MCC aims to provide experiences that make its guests feel alive through recreation and connection to the Maine Coast.  In helping others enjoy this place, MCC hopes to contribute to preserving the Maine coast and public access to it by increasing appreciation for this resource and donating to land trusts and foundations dedicated to these goals.  The coast of Maine is special; it's people, heritage and natural beauty come together to form a way of life people are drawn to.  MCC wants to share this place and way of life with others.  Join us for the most customizable boat charter in Portland Maine.

The Vessel

"ISLANDER" - a Cutwater 30 Command Bridge, strikes the perfect balance for a day at sea.  Packed with comforts, all the necessary safety and navigation equipment and a brisk cruising speed, she is ready to explore far off destinations while maintaining the comforts of home.  


Cruising Destinations

When chartering a boat or taking a boat tour the anticipation of a destination can add to the overall experience.  Depending on the length of the boat charter, we target sights ranging from Portland Headlight for iconic photos, to isolated island coves for grilling and swimming to one of the many restaurants accessible by boat for a meal you will surely remember.  There are options no matter what your goals are in the waters around Portland Maine and our excursions turn Casco Bay into your personal playground.  Below are links to a few of the dockside restaurants we frequent when on one of our boat trips.

Captain Phil - "Skipper"

"From commercial fishing in the Bering Sea to tall ship sailing along the Atlantic seaboard, I've never found anything quite compares to a day on the water in my home state of Maine."

"I grew up on these waters and have no desire to leave them.  The Maine Coast is my home and there is nothing I'd rather do then spend a day cruising its waters."
