Newport Shipyard hosted another Pink Pumpkin Regatta on Friday, October 17 in the inner basin outside Belle's Cafe. Ten teams including crew members off boats in the Yard, dock staff and a team from Belle's entered the race to raise money for breast cancer awareness. This year, over $500 was raised and donated to the Gloria Gemma Breast Cancer Resource Foundation. Well done teams and we look forward to another great event in 2015!

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!
