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.
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.
At Newport Shipyard, we're boat people too, and every facet of our operation is geared towards enhancing and promoting life on the water. We have hosted America's Cup events, a Volvo campaign and countless other major regattas and boat shows, along the way becoming the port of call for some of the industry's biggest movers and shakers. So whether you're a mega-yacht needing a refit, a cruiser looking for a summer base, a racer campaigning the regatta circuit or a transient just looking for a great place to tie up, your search is over!
