Explore the origins of American boating onboard a New England yacht charter. Fondly considered to be the home of yachting in North America, New England’s rugged coastline is endowed with nautical playgrounds and towns steeped in maritime history.

Mingle with the yachting crowd in Newport and soak up the laid-back East Coast ambiance on the stylish holiday islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. Alternatively, for longer charters cruise to the 17th-century college town of Boston and discover the natural beauty of Maine.

New England has long been America’s holiday destination of choice and today it is best discovered with a New England yacht charter. In the 19th century, the rich and famous headed for what they called “summer cottages”, but are, in reality, grand mansions. Glamorous figures like John F Kennedy and JD Rockefeller, who spent their summers sailing in and around Newport, favored the coastline for its beauty and heritage. Today Newport, Cape Cod and the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket continue to attract notable names to America’s postcard summer yachting destination.

The whole of New England abounds with cultural highlights with something for everyone: gorgeous scenery, charm in abundance and great sporting diversity. Mingle with the yachting crowd in New England’s most charismatic seafront city of Newport, the yachting capital of the world and long-time home of the America’s Cup, before cruising on to the stylish Edgartown on Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket Town on the tiny island of Nantucket. Back on the mainland, sail alongside pretty pastel clapperboard houses along this most historic and scenic of cruising grounds to the 17th century college town of Boston and the rocky coastline of Maine. Follow in the wake of the Pilgrims as you glide into Provincetown and you will understand why they settled here. Many of the world’s finest superyachts call these cruising grounds home in summer months – charter a luxury yacht and you will be in great company.
