The Brooklyn VI is a charter fishing vessel that has offered a high standard of deep sea fishing and service since 1970. Operations are established in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn and owned by the Sapanara family.
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!
After a full day of action-packed blue fishing in New York waters, enjoy your ride back to the dock on our spacious upper deck with a nice ocean breeze or retreat inside to our temperature-controlled cabin to get a snack and a drink. Deep sea fishing has become one of the more popular watersports in New York, and we would like to thank all of our patrons who choose the Brooklyn VI for making us their number one choice for their fishing cruises in New York. After one trip aboard the Brooklyn VI, we are confident that you will agree that deep sea fishing with us is one of the more amazing things to do in New York!
Captain Robert has been running his boat since he was 18-years-old. He specializes in top water fishing in New York, but his experiences don't stop there.He also is one of the best Mackerel fishermen and is one of the hardest fishermen out there. Captain Robert is an all-around excellent fisherman.
Captain Mike has been running the Brooklyn VI since he was 21-years-old where he started out in the galley and worked his way to a deck hand when he was only 11-years- old. Captain Mike is a great fisherman and takes much pride in deep sea fishing. Captain Mike runs our day trips, as well as all our offshore trips. When he is not up stairs navigating the vessel, he is usually working as a deck hand.
