New England Yacht Charter Guide

Boasting a rich yachting heritage, New England is the most distinguished choice for a luxury yacht charter vacation. New England cruises can be completed in as little as one week thanks to the area’s compact size. Although packed into this region, you will experience a diverse range of cultures, colours, sights, and flavours. The yacht charter season in New England runs from May to October.

Cruising through New England aboard a stunning superyacht is the only way to drink in the culture of Cape Cod, the history of Nantucket and the jazzy blues of Martha’s Vineyard. Within easy reach by boat of all the coastal and island hotspots, and peppered with notable landmarks from America’s oldest region, the vibrant villages and chic towns that stretch from The Hamptons to Maine offer a bed of discovery, both culinary and architecturally.

Newport, home to the iconic sailing event, America’s Cup, is a popular starting point for New England yacht charter cruises. This Rhode Island town offers hearty cliff walks and world-famous jazz festivals, historic mansions and the iconic Breakers: New England’s most esteemed summer residence and a paragon of its rich social history. Martha’s Vineyard encapsulates quaint New England charm with its seaside village character, pretty beaches and antiquated buildings, whilst the National Historic District of Nantucket – once a prosperous whaling port – is home to great food and fine wine, with cobbled streets lined with old-fashioned lamps and plenty of museums and exhibits.

Pretty Cape Cod boasts some of the best beaches in New England. Elevate your sandy shore experience with a signature lobster roll, pulled fresh from the sea and served up in style. Drop anchor at Cape Cod marina and enjoy aperitifs aboard the sun deck or hop ashore for cocktails at Open House Beach Bar to enjoy views across the Bay before you party into the night. With all the hotspots and hidden gems in the region within easy reach of each other, you can enjoy the singularity of every destination to the full when venturing by yacht, immersing yourself in the traditions and cultures of each destination without compromise or sacrifice.

Enjoy freshly caught lobster or a bowl of aromatic clam chowder as you motor around the inlets of Maine, choosing between busy, bustling marinas and more secluded inlets as the mood takes you. The Hamptons boast chic little galleries and vintage markets for exploring ashore, plus world-class gourmet dining and laid-back café culture.
