Coastal New England is rich in maritime history and is a great location for luxury yacht charter. The beautiful rocky coastline, quaint towns and fresh seafood make every yacht charter a classic experience. The charming communities of Newport, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Boston offer nautical landmarks, timeless architecture and picturesque harbors.

Sample Itinerary

Day

1

Embark from Newport, Rhode Island and steam to Block Island an idyllic locale some 12 nm east of Montauk Point. Popular with summer tourists, Block Island was named as one 'one of the last great places of the Western Hemisphere' and is a great location for cycling, hiking, sailing and fishing. It also has some great beaches and offers some excellent cliff-top views.

Day

2

Leave Block Island for the island of Nantucket. Biking is a great way to appreciate the island’s fields and weathered shingled buildings. For a very good evening meal, try the club car or the Wawinet House in the little village of Siasconset. Be sure to call ahead to reserve your table. While you are out there, see the red and white striped Sankaty Lighthouse and the huge sand dune cliffs.

Day

3

Leave Nantucket for Martha’s Vineyard, which is blessed with scenic beauty and charm. Shopping is great here and a tour of the island is always interesting with the most visited spot being the brightly colored cliffs at Gay Head. You might also choose to ride the ‘Chappy’ ferry to nearby Chappaquiddick island, scene of the infamous 1969 incident involving the late Senator Edward (Ted) Kennedy and his unfortunate companion, Mary Jo Kopechne.

Day

4

Steam from Martha’s Vineyard to Hyannis (approximately 30nm; 2 to 3 hours cruising), one of Cape’s Cod's earliest summer resorts. Hyannis is strongly associated with the Kennedy family, and those interested in history may like to visit the JFK Hyannis Museum, which is located in the old Town Hall on Main Street. The harbour is full of yachts and sightseeing boats and is the largest recreational boating and second largest commercial fishing port in Cape Cod.

Day

5

Spend the day swimming in the Elizabeth Islands (approximately 15nm from Hyannis, yet additional cruising in the islands would increase the daily distance), and then head to Hadley's Harbor. Located amid pasture and pine at the eastern end of Naushon Island, Hadley's Harbor is magical venue that reminds one of times past, where cars are forbidden and the only means of transport are by foot, sailboat and horseback.

Day

6

Leave Hadley’s Harbor for Newport (approximately 2 to 3 hours cruising). Considered to be the gem of coastal New England, Newport is the perfect place to culminate your luxury yacht charter experience. Newport has been a playground for the rich and famous since the 1880's and owes much of its architectural heritage to families like the Astor's and Vanderbilts. Take a tour of the old mansions or a stroll through the town's many landscaped gardens.

Day

7

Disembark your yacht in Newport.

The enchanting island of Cuttyhunk is undoubtedly the jewel of the Elizabeth Islands. Spend an evening on the beach enjoying a delicious, traditional New England lobster boil, complete with all the trimmings.”
