Let’s go fishing and make great memories!!!

My name is Captain Rick Medeiros. Welcome aboard!

On The Edge is a safe and amazing vessel manufactured by Grady-White. She is large enough to fish 4 adults comfortably and up to 6 with kids. On The Edge was completely retrofitted in 2021 including a new, powerful, and yet quiet Suzuki 300 HP engine. All safety equipment is onboard and kept up to date. All you need to bring is your favorite drink or snack, (water is provided), maybe some sunscreen(NO SPRAY) and a cooler to bring home the day’s catch.
