The Brooklyn VI is a modern exceedingly fast 110′ long, 26′ wide super cruiser and is one of New York’s largest fishing boats that offers offshore fishing. The fishing vessel is powered by 3 JOHN DEERE engines (newly repowered for the 2012 season) which allows the Brooklyn VI to achieve a maximum speed of 27 knots. The Brooklyn VI can accommodate up to 132 passengers and can allow up to 120 passengers to participate in our party boat fishing. The spacious cabin can seat 100+ passengers and is air conditioned for those hot summer days as well as heated for those frigid winter days. The Brooklyn VI has all state-of-the-art electronics for navigation and locating fish such as 4 VHF radios, 2 Furuno fish finders, 2 North Star GPS units, 1 Furuno Nav Net, and 2 Furuno radars. We also have 2 restrooms on board with fresh running water.
While on board the Brooklyn VI for a full day or night fishing trip, you may bring your own tackle or rent one of our rods and reels. We are one of the only boats fishing in New York that carries an assortment of bait and tackle and plenty of it so we never run out. The reason for carrying an assortment of bait (Butterfish, Herring, Mackerel, and Sardines) is because some days the fish prefer one type of bait over another. The crew will cut and hand out the bait prior to arrival to the fishing grounds. If you have any questions while fishing in Brooklyn or out at sea, feel free to ask one of our experienced crew members walking around the entire trip to lend a hand. Our crew shifts begin 2 hours before leaving and end 2 hours after docking to ensure your fishing trip is second to none!
