Charter New England... Sample Itinerary

New England
7-Night Sample Itinerary
Newport to Boston

NOTE: This is just a sample itinerary. Itineraries are tailored to your tastes.

Day 1 - Newport
Newport is renowned as New England’s sailing hub. Embark the yacht and be dazzled by the beautiful views of this island’s historic waterfront. Bannister’s Wharf is the perfect place for your first taste of New England fare. Spend the evening exploring this delightful spot.

Day 2 - Martha's Vineyard
Before leaving Newport, go for a cliff walk and you’ll be enamored by the beautiful mansions along the route. If there’s time, stop at Castle Hill Inn and enjoy the view from the front lawn. After you return, set sail for Martha’s Vineyard, a longtime haven for America’s elite. The Black Dog Tavern in Vineyard Haven is a must visit — try the chowder.

Days 3 & 4 - Nantucket
One of the best ways to explore Martha’s Vineyard is by bike. Spend your morning cycling about the island. Be sure to stop at the now-legendary Edgartown — the shooting location of the film “Jaws.” Later, hop over to the gray-hued island of Nantucket, which offers a quintessential New England feel. Nantucket’s cobbled streets and charming sea-weathered buildings are home to an assortment of quirky little shops and haunts. One must-buy item is a traditional lightship basket. The Whaling Museum is an interesting place to get a taste of local history and the Toy Boat boasts a stellar collection of classic wooden floatables. In the evening, tickle your taste buds with a selection of New England’s finest fish and seafood at the White Elephant Hotel’s Brant Point Grill, which also has stunning views of the harbor lights.

Day 5 - Provincetown
The yacht will make way for Provincetown early in the morning. Take a cup of coffee on the aft deck to enjoy the picturesque seaside views as you cruise. Upon arrival in Provincetown, disembark to explore this little artist’s heaven, while the crew set up a traditional lobster bake on the beach for an evening of succulent seafood under the stars.

Days 6, 7 & 8 - Boston
One of the oldest cities in the United States, Boston is a proud and exciting metropolis with a small-town feel. The waterfront constantly bustles with visitors, enjoying all the attractions, such as Rowes Wharf, a great shopping spot for local goods and souvenirs, Quincy Market and the famous New England Aquarium. History buffs should head for the Freedom Trail to walk back in time to the beginnings of the Revolutionary War. Spend the last day of your charter in Boston. Be sure to visit the USS CONSTITUTION — the world’s oldest commissioned naval vessel, named by first U.S. President George Washington. A leisurely lunch at a classic local haunt like the Union Oyster House, the oldest restaurant in the U.S., is a perfect way to end your journey. Sports fans may want to take in a game at Boston’s famed Fenway Park, home of the Green Monster. The next morning enjoy a leisurely breakfast on board before disembarking.
