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.

Charter-yacht-Marae-in-New-England

Located on Cape Cod, just a few miles across the shoals from Nantucket, is the peaceful town of Chatham, Mass. Famous for its warm, white sand beaches, Chatham is home to the Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge — the only designated Wilderness area in southern New England. For history buffs, the National Trust for Historic Preservation has named Chatham one of its "Destinations of Distinction".

After a day of warm beaches and exploring historic towns you can relax and enjoy cocktails or dinner at the Chatham Bars Inn. This 100 year old former private hunting and fishing lodge has been converted into an elegant seaside resort, complete with its own farm providing fresh food to its award winning restaurant.

Somes Sound, Mt Desert Island, Maine

For those times when you really want to get away from it all, Marae can take you to the Somes Sound, which splits Mount Desert Island, Maine nearly in half. The only fjord in the eastern US, this deep, narrow passage is seldom visited by yachts. We will sail up between the towering cliffs until the water opens up into a wide, calm bay. If we are lucky, we may see one of the Peregrine falcons which have begun to repopulate the Acadia National Park.

We can anchor for the night in the bay which is a perfect location for making use of Marae’s kayaks and paddleboards while Chef Sue prepares a dinner with fresh lobster and local Maine blueberries for dessert.
