The best way to experience Coastal New England is on the deck of a charter yacht. Enjoy consistent breezes, gorgeous beaches, incredible islands, and stunning rocky coastline cruising the Atlantic. Set sail through Narragansett Bay, Cape Cod, or Mystic. Visit the lovely villages of Newport, or head up to Martha's Vineyard and incredible islands.
With 3,000 NM of coastline from the Bay of Fundy to New York, a yacht charter in North-East America is one of the most exciting yacht charter cruising ground in the world. Go from protected anchorage to quiet moorings with your bareboat charter to discover the stunning natural sceneries.
From quaint fishing villages and wonderful remote islands to sophisticated towns with picturesque buildings, New England has something for everyone. And, there are many great places to hike or cycle in gorgeous landscapes. Or discover the regional maritime history if you want to relax after your day on the water.
In one week, you can explore the beautiful towns of Rhode Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, or Maine! If your sailing vacation is more extended, you can travel to New York, moving from port to port in Long Island Sound area.
If you yearn to feel the wind in the sails of your charter yacht, New England's bays will provide thrilling adventures. These waters allow fast passage and easy access for those chartering a motor yacht. Plan charters around one of the many summer festivals, but leave the shoreside crowds behind by escaping to your private catamaran.
You can embark in Newport, Rhode Island, home to classic schooners, 12-meter America's Cup challengers, and mega yachts. The place is the playground of the rich and famous. It is also renowned for its historical landmarks as the mansions of the Vanderbilts and Astors.
From late May to September, a bareboat charter in Cape Cod allows you to travel at your own pace. Whether you are into sportfishing or relax sunset sighting, you decide the program of the day.
On the southern coast of Cape Cod, sail through the Elizabeth Islands and anchor Cuttyhunk. The Forbes family does not own the area. So you can rest on one of the three sandy beaches after a day of fishing striped bass or catching bluefish.
In Martha's Vineyard, you can anchor at Edgartown, with its picturesque lighthouse entrance, charming town, and nearby sandy beach.
If you are an experienced sailor who knows how to deal with the tide and current charts, head to Nantucket! Or charter a crewed yacht to pamper yourself.
The location is blessed with great biking, white sandy beaches, and excellent restaurants. Stop at its iconic lighthouses and stroll the charming cobblestone streets. Brant Point Light is said to be the United States' second oldest lighthouse!
In southern Connecticut, Fishers Island features several beaches and a yacht club that holds weekly races during the summer.
