New England Yacht Charter

 

Sail past the ‘Gilded Age’ mansions that line the harbours and ports of Newport, Rhode Island and the former whaling port of Massachusetts on a luxury New England yacht charter. New England has a rich and fascinating history that anyone onboard a yacht charter in New England will enjoy learning.

Mansions aside, there’s a purity and simplicity about New England sights - lighthouses casting beacons out to sea, lobster traps bobbing in the water, their catch served up in seafood shacks close to the shore. Wide, unpopulated beaches, cobblestone streets and a flotilla of sailboats racing to the finish are among some of the sights that you can enjoy from the deck of you yacht charter in New England.
