Newport Charter Yacht Show

Top Five Reasons to Charter a Yacht in New England this Summer

NEWPORT, R.I. – If you need a good reason to book a charter yacht vacation in New England, experienced brokers at the Newport Charter Yacht Show have come up with not one, but five of them. Scheduled for June 22-25, the annual event takes place on the historic harbor in Newport, R.I. and is the only show of its kind in the U.S., inviting industry professionals and discriminating consumers (attending with brokers) to explore the world of luxury chartering and tour a selection of world-class yachts available in the Northeastern United States this summer.

Reason #1: A Yacht for Everyone
Looking for the classic elegance of a sailboat? The modern glamour of a motor yacht? Whatever your preference, there is a charter yacht in New England that fits. Try on the 116-foot sloop Whisper or the 98-foot motoryacht Sima for size at this year’s show.  Compare amenities of 80 footers with those of superyachts from 150 to 225+ feet. All come with the same comforts found at luxury hotels; most are equipped with a variety of water toys, such as jet skis, paddleboards, kayaks, dinghies and motorboats; and some boast extra perks such as top-of-the-line entertainment systems, personal gyms, hot tubs and rooftop bars.

Reason #2: Ultimate Summer Destinations
There is no shortage of charming colonial towns and scenic islands gracing New England’s intriguing coast. The region boasts an abundance of historic landmarks and museums for exploring while also offering beautiful beaches, world-class shopping and lively nightlife and entertainment.

Reason #3: Five-Star Hospitality and a Private Chef
From the moment a charter yacht is booked, its team of highly trained professionals – from the broker to the captain to the crew – begin planning every lavish detail of your preferred vacation. During the Newport Charter Yacht Show, invited guests can immerse themselves in the onboard experience by participating in a festive “Yacht Hop,” where captains and crewmembers entertain onboard their respective yachts, serving signature cocktails and exquisite hors d'oeuvres. And no luxury yacht’s crew is complete without a chef who is available to tailor menus around specific food preferences and dietary restrictions. During the show, the chefs also demonstrate their culinary prowess in a series of much anticipated shore-side competitions.  

Reason #4: Customized Itinerary
Of course, there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to planning the ideal vacation, which is why each individual charter vacation is crafted around the tastes of the guests onboard. Whether one wants to explore the quaint resort islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, the bustling cities of Portland and Boston or never leave the comfort of their floating “home,” the yacht’s professionals will customize accordingly, charting a memorable course from one waypoint to the next.

Reason #5: Unmatched Experience
In addition to setting up excursions to towns and surrounding islands, charter yacht crews intuitively plan all sorts of bonding activities for both adults and children, from kayaking and fishing to games and sing-alongs. Whether it’s a family vacation, a romantic getaway for two or a reunion with old friends, it’s the attention to details and the crafting of little surprises in between that give guests the ability to unplug and physically detach from land and life’s stresses.
