Head out on the Hard Merchandise with Capt. Joe Marciano!
The F/V Hard Merchandise is a 38ft Danielshead solid fiberglass Novi boat. We are not fast and fancy but we are efficient and we do catch fish. Captain Dave had a long history of supporting his family catching fish and now he has passed this boat onto Joe. SO this, combined with the limited opportunity to do charters, results in one of the most exciting opportunities that you could have on a boat in your lifetime, in the inshore Gulf of Maine. Both boats are now docked in historic Gloucester, Massachusetts, behind the Gloucester House Restaurant. If you are in the area, please stop by and check it out!
If you have an interest in a charter, throw out your ideas and potential dates to Captain Dave and he can let you know the best times and availability for that time of year but please remember; we are a working fishing vessel so charter opportunities are very limited. Tails Up!
The Hard Merchandise is now booking charters for next season.
