SUMMER IN NEW ENGLAND!
Looking for the perfect vacation this summer that offers plenty of adventure? Plan a five star vacation in New England and book 150ft MY Claire, which accommodates 11 guests and offers tons of cruising and sight seeing for you and your guests. Or consider 154ft MY Usher, complete with fishing gear and plenty of water toys.
Fly into Providence RI and meet your charter yacht in Newport, RI, where the bars and nightlife is always alive, the restaurants are always packed, and the sailboats and yachts are always breathtaking to look at. Spend a day here and be a proper tourist: take a tour of the Newport Mansions, walk along the beautiful cliff walk, and most importantly, sit and watch the sunset on your yacht as you enjoy hors d'oeuvres prepared by your five star chef.
The Captain and five star crew will then take you on a nice cruise through some smaller towns with a seaport community, such as Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, which have beautiful pristine beaches. Visit the famous Club Car in Nantucket for some wonderful piano music and lively entertainment (good food too!). Experience a close up encounter with whales!
Continue through New Hampshire to reach Kennebunkport Maine which is filled with boutique shoppers and gallery hoppers during the summer months. Kennebunkport is one of the most prominent vacation towns during the summer months and has much to offer in the way of fine patio waterfront cusiine, wine, and most importantly, seafood! The people here are wonderful "locals" and very welcoming to tourists.
After a few hours, you will reach Portland, Maine, the largest city in Maine. Take a tour of Peak Island and be sure to have a coffee in the Old Port area.
Boothbay and Camden are two of my favorite places and would be your next stops. They are both unique. Boothbay is known as the boating capitol of New England. Boothbay is a lovely harbor and once the yacht is docked, you can ask to be taken (by tender) to the Lobster Pound, in Boothbay Harbor, where you pick your own lobster out (I prefer the 3 pounder). Orders come with corn on the cob and the basics, drawn butter. If you are an adventure type, there are over 20 miles of hiking trails to try out in Boothbay.
Whatever your plans are for the summer, let us help you book the perfect vacation! We have plenty of yachts available in the Mediterranean as well!
