Newport ShipyarD & MARINa

New England's Yachting Hub

As a yachting destination, Newport is hard to beat. The beautiful harbor, lively regatta circuit, charming town life and central location ensure that "America's sailing capital" lives up to its billing every summer. At the center of the action is Newport Shipyard. With the biggest lifts, cleanest facilities, and the most dock space in town - as well as a full-service yard, ship store, restaurant and fitness center all right on the harbor front - Newport Shipyard has become New England's yachting hub, attracting the best boats on the East Coast



2016 was a great year at Newport Shipyard and one of the many highlights was the arrival of our new 200MT Marine Travellift. Check out this video, produced by Billy Black photography, that documents the arrival and assembly of our new lift. We have many people to thank, including Senator Jack Reed, who helped us secure funds through the Small Shipyards federal grant to buy the new lift. For the full story, click here.

Mankind and the elements: for some, it's an uncomfortable bond. For others, when weather strikes, inspiration begins. In the second episode of "That's Amazing," the Comanche sailing team, including our own NIck Dana, are featured during their attempt to break the Transatlantic Record. Thank you Great Big Story and The Weather Channel for this awesome sailing footage and coverage.
