In this exciting episode of New England Boating TV, co-hosts Parker Kelley and Tom Richardson pay a visit to the lovely port of Yarmouth, Maine, off Casco Bay. After arriving with their Pursuit C 260 at the Yarmouth Boat Yard, the crew sets off in search of adventure on the Royal River and beyond.

Along the way they get a personal tour of the local waters with Yarmouth Boat Yard’s Jack Stewart and dine at the Royal River Grill House. They also take a short cruise to nearby Great Chebeague Island, where Tom and Parker tour parts of the island by bike and enjoy sunset oysters and cold beverages on the porch of the magnificent Chebeague Island Inn. Truly spectacular!
