Sailing yacht Marae is available for charter in New England this summer. The 32.97 metre yacht offers a great sailing experience, no matter whether you are a novice or seasoned sailor, and is the perfect vessel to discover the delights of this famous vacation destination.
Here her captain Frank Ficken shares his insight into some of the best spots in New England to visit while on board.
1. Castine, Maine
Castine, Maine is a quiet village located in the upper reaches of Penobscot Bay. Rich in maritime history, Castine is a charming village that is home to the Maine Maritime Academy as well as two historic forts. After warming up with a stroll through the town, you can increase your exercise level on some of the many hiking trails that offer spectacular views of the bay and town.
Once you have experienced the town, we will take the short tender ride to return to our anchorage. Marae will be anchored in a small bay so little known that it has no name on the charts. It’s a perfect place to sit and relax in quiet solitude and watch the eagles and osprey catch fish for their dinner.
