New England Yacht Charters

New England may be less commonly requested than the Caribbean or Mediterranean, but it is a destination not to be missed!

On a charter in New England guests can experience a unique yachting adventure exploring historical, scenic and cultural treasures. New England is also known for its rocky coastline, unique lighthouses, pristine beaches, and dynamic sunsets. Not to be forgotten is access to amazing fresh seafood, lobsta and chowda galore!

Smaller colorful coastal fishing villages and rich cultural cities of America's upper northeast coast will reveal themselves from your yacht charter in a way unseen by train or car. Sail or motor around Martha's Vineyard while enjoying a lobster dinner from the deck of your charter yacht.

Motor and sailing yachts are available in the summer months in New England, and our specialists are experts on how to experience this coastline in the perfect way. It's possible to visit busy harbors with upscale shopping, little "out islands" for peace and tranquility, or both!

Amazing History

New England destinations include those that were once old commercial whaling and merchant trading centers and have now become yachting destinations for the elite (think Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket). From Bar Harbor to Boston, you'll cruise into a wide variety of New England towns and cities steeped in history. And don't forget the yachting capital of New England, Newport! Attractions are many, and each destination is unique. Entertainment ranges from tours of historical sites to experiencing an exciting race on an America's Cup yacht.

New England has so much to offer. Fishing, cultural tours, and outstanding seafood are among the many diversions. Sit back and enjoy the sights as your crew prepares succulent Maine lobster, a bowl of steaming clam chowder, or locally caught fresh fish. Watch as lighthouses and grass-swept sand dunes catch the sea mist.

Maine to Connecticut

From rugged Maine to quaint Connecticut (touching New Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island in between), everyone on board will enjoy the views and beautiful backdrops. Even the short distance from Newport, RI to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket provides you with a quintessential New England charter experience. Read our post about New England. >

The romantic ambience of glacier-carved harbors, seafaring history, cobblestoned towns, and countless islands make New England destinations some of the most interesting and rewarding yacht charter cruises in the world. We also include New York's Long Island Sound in our New England category. A popular route is from Newport, RI, to Sag Harbor in the Hamptons. Then use the Long Island Railroad to get to Manhattan!

Motor yachts, mega yachts, and sailing yachts are all available to charter in New England. The best season is arguably summer; although locals may tell you that autumn is better with its cooler temperatures and smaller crowds. Our specialists are New England experts, one of them having cruised this area for many years herself. If you want a truly experienced person helping you plan your vacation, you have come to the right place!

3000 Miles of Coastline

With coastline from the Bay of Fundy to New York City, a yacht charter in New England can be carved from this coastline just for you, whatever your needs and interests. You can't see it all thou in one trip however fast your charter yacht may be! We can help you plan where would be best for your vacation based on your likes and dislikes.

This is the ultimate way to explore the beautiful coastline of New England. Extremely rich in maritime history, New England yacht charters offer a unique yachting experience during the summer months from May to September.

Choose from such destinations as Martha's Vineyard, Bar Harbor, Camden, Boothbay, Nantucket and Newport. For the true history seekers, a yacht charter based around Boston and Cape Cod will make you wish for a longer cruise on your charter yacht. you will be entering harbours you have read about in history books about the settlers and america's path to independance from Great Britain.

Want to be part of the "in" crowd and be seen? The twin forks of Long Island beckon your charter yacht to stop at Sag Harbor or Shelter island. Ashore, "The Hamptons" are merely minutes away by taxi and the south shore beaches are the best around.

Connecticut brings its own destinations such as Mystic and Essex, perhaps visited on your way to New York City. Floating under the Brooklyn Bridge to cruise by the Statue of Liberty on your own crewed charter yacht is an experience to be savored. Explore the Mansions of Newport from the "golden age" or the uniqueness of Martha's Vineyard on your charter - it can be busy and quite all at the same time.

Two Samples Of Charter Cruises in New England

ONE- Boston to Maine

Easy travel to Boston allows you flexibility in arrival. On the first day you could meet your charter yacht downtown; or perhaps boarding your luxury yacht charter would be savored better with a view of the USS Constitution?

Day two might find you on a short passage to Marblehead with its narrow streets echoing a seafaring heritage, or perhaps you'd prefer Salem for some witch hunting!

Day three could mix art and fishing with a visit to Gloucester, home of the fishing fleets made famous in The Perfect Storm as well as a budding artist community.

Day four might see your arrival by motor into Portland, Maine, the southern gateway to Casco Bay. Your yacht charter captain will be sure to point you to the best watering holes in Portland's wonderful restored downtown.

Day five could include a short cruise exploring Casco Bay, or a trip across its mouth to Boothbay, where the local "Lobsta" co-op will be your target for the best of Down East shellfish.

Day six might find you in pretty Castine or the better-known Camden Harbor. The center of town is easily walkable, and you're never out of sight from the harbor. Climb Mt. Battie if you're up for a hike!

Day seven would take you to Bangor, to be whisked away at the airport all too soon at the end of a great yacht charter.

This is just one idea. Your interests and needs allow the ideal cruise to be created and modified just for you.

TWO - Cape Cod, Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard and Newport

Arriving in Boston, your motor yacht charter awaits to take you out past the center of this historic city to Provincetown, first landing place of the Pilgrims in 1620.

Day two can be spent exploring Provincetown's vibrant harbor and the nearby coastal towns.

Day three takes you through the narrow Cape Cod Canal into Buzzards Bay and on to Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard.

Day four the charter yacht's launch takes you into town, perhaps to explore the island by bike or merely to browse the abundance of shops along the streets of Edgartown and Vineyard Haven.

Day five sees your charter yacht arrive in Nantucket, rich in whaling history and now a calmer "out island" to be explored by bike. The numerous small galleries display rich local artwork, and the streets are lined with restored captains' houses from whaling times.

Day six you'll want to spend further exploring Nantucket before you depart towards Newport. Perhaps your charter yacht captain will suggest a quiet anchorage for the night off sleepy Cuttyhunk.

Day seven sees you docked in Newport, Rhode Island, where you can tour restored mansions, walk shop-lined wharves, and take in the harbor scene from a dockside restaurant (or consider a detour to Watch Hill) before your car delivers you to Providence Airport.
