about Sea NewporT

In late 2021, Captain Curtis Adam was scouring the boat market in search of the perfect small group charter boat. Knowing "perfect" was a term to be used with caution, this search was more for a boat with the best potential. He carefully sorted through the vast amount of listings and the vision became clear, he wanted a picnic boat.

Originally hailing from Sebasco Harbor just outside Phippsburg, ME, Tabasco is a 32 foot Wasque (way-squee) powerboat, built in Martha's Vineyard in 1973. She sported a large aft deck, a covered pilothouse, and all the potential Curtis was looking for. She was the one.


Before starting her new life in Newport, Tabasco underwent some needed upgrades. Most importantly, the addition of the large aft bench our guests enjoy relaxing on today. A few mechanical and cosmetic upgrades later, Tabasco was launched on May 24, 2022.

Now a full time Newport resident, Tabasco is a head turner with her classic styling and modern amenities. She sports ample deck space which we like to call her "flex space." With the large aft lounging bench, moveable deck chairs, & table, it is the perfect space for serving both charcuterie boards as well as showing off your best dance moves. She has a full audio system with Bluetooth connectivity to make sure the mood is set or the tunes are pumping.
