Newport to Boston: 7 days discovering New England by superyacht

Newport
Day 1

Newport

New England, a fantastic superyacht destination, seems to be in closer touch with its history than many other parts of America. Whaling, witch trials, Paul Revere’s famous ride and other aspects of early American history seem as if they could be part of the present. Yankee traditions are strong here, from lobster bakes with potatoes and corn to the gray-shingled houses that line Nantucket’s shores.

These ragged coasts and rocky isles have always been home to seafaring folk, so a private yacht or New England luxury yacht charter is the perfect way to visit. A signature lighthouse greets you outside nearly every port. Once ashore, cobblestone streets, shuttered clapboard houses, precious antiques and piping hot chowder await. Newport, Rhode Island, with its America’s Cup heritage, has long been the gateway to New England, especially for yachtsmen. Though they lie together off the Massachusetts coast, the islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket each have their own unique character. Cape Cod is part quiet countryside, part elite retreat, and Boston is a thriving modern city that has not forgotten the role it played in the country’s storied past. History has never been more alive — or more delicious — than along New England’s coast.

Day 1 - Newport

It’s clear from the forest of masts rising above Newport’s harbour that this is one of the world’s foremost sailing centres. Board your superyacht and enjoy the view of the historic waterfront dominated by the white spire of 310-year-old Trinity Church. Take an evening stroll around Bannister’s Wharf and stay on to dance at the Boom Boom Room.
