New England

Famous for its maritime and seafaring history, New England offers a huge variety of activities, events and must-see spots for those travelling by superyacht. Small but vibrant towns with museums, shops and eateries contrast with quiet anchorages and rugged coastlines making New England a must for those with a passion for all things nautical.

*Best for: *Those who need to unwind

What to do and see: No matter where you’re cruising in New England, you’re never too far away from a nautical museum, so make sure to select a few favourites before your trip. Explore Martha’s Vineyard on foot or by bicycle to take in its sandy beaches and lighthouses before heading to the Nantucket Life Saving Museum. There are a number of foodie festivals and breweries to enjoy throughout the year, or more active holidaymakers should head to the White Mountains to see the waterfalls. A day in Boston also never fails to entertain — opt for a Red Sox baseball game or a stroll along the waterfront to Quincy Market and the New England Aquarium.

If you can squeeze a trip to Maine into your itinerary, cruise over to Butter Island enjoy the famous lobster offering alongside stunning views and the odd seal sunning itself on the rocks. While on your luxury yacht, keep a lookout for whales further out to sea.

When to go: It’s possible to discover New England by superyacht all year around, as the colours in autumn and the snow in winter is well worth seeing. However, yachties should look at a vacation between May and September for the warmest conditions.
