Coast Guard Assists Stranded Charter Vessel

BOSTON - Coast Guard crews are assisting a disabled passenger vessel approximately 13 miles east of Nahant, Massachusetts, Monday.

Watchstanders at Coast Guard Sector Boston received notification at approximately 4:30 p.m., that the 83-foot passenger vessel Cetacea had a line entangled in its propeller and was disabled with 163 people aboard.

The Coast Guard Cutter Tybee, Coast Guard Cutter Escanaba, and a Coast Guard Station Gloucester, Massachusetts, small boat crew have responded and are on scene. The Escanaba is providing medical personnel to evaluate the passengers and crew for medical concerns and assist if necessary.

Boston Harbor Cruises has a vessel with divers scheduled to attempt to clear the line from the propeller Tuesday morning. The Tybee and the Escanaba will remain on scene through the night to provide assistance as needed.
