Charter a Yacht in New England
A Luxury Yacht Charter to New England
America’s charm was born in New England, a feisty, freedom-seeking string of six states: Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, all joined at in the northeastern corner of the United States.
Not only is the area known for its rocky shorelines, humbled lighthouses, and Cape Code styled homes, but there’s a deeply rooted culture in New England that is inherently American—where it’s a known, celebrated fact of the freedom that was toiled for, fought for, and victoriously won, where hard work is the fabric of its big, sprawling metropolises, and where arguably the most critical parts of American history unfolded.
New England may not enjoy the warm weather that douses the Caribbean, but that doesn’t stop this diverse section of the United States from carving its name in the top tourist destinations. In the winter, it will gift you with scenes of forests full of tall, snow-covered pines, colonial homes with candles flickering in the windows, and of course, win you the respect of the hardened souls of the locals who go through the season unbothered by the temperature. Take a private yacht charter in the spring or summer, and the waters will be full of yachts, sailboats, and catamarans jetting off through the region’s many waterways, natural lakes, and the pale blue waters of the North Atlantic Ocean.
Whatever time of the year you charter New England in, you can expect boundless opportunities to explore the region’s seasonal beauty, from sailing in the breezy warm weather near Cape Cod or cozying up at a wooded cabin with a blazing fire while the snow quietly falls.

Hitting the ground in New England means a trip into one of America’s greatest cities: Boston. Every corner of Boston’s sprawling cityscape weaves a story of patriotic history, with storefronts and red brick buildings full of that unmistakable Bostonian heart and pride, with a touch of endearing local gruffness.
Start with the Freedom Trail, and if you’ve got the time, swing into Green Dragon Tavern, dubbed the “headquarters of the revolution” for a quick beer. It’s just one of the many spots in the city where revolutionary groups like the Sons of Liberty, Boston Committee of Correspondence, and the Boston Caucus met in secrecy. Walk around Faneuil Hall Marketplace, where you can indulge in the best of Boston eats (poutine, anyone?), and hit the historic pavement for some afternoon shopping.
It’s not a trip to Boston without catching a Red Sox game at Fenway Park, or if you’re braving their winter, it’s all about the Bruins. No matter the time of year, it’s always the season for Boston’s adorable menagerie of penguins at the New England Aquarium. Grab a cannoli before checking out the Museum of Fine Arts, or on your way to visit the iconic Paul Revere House, followed by the Old North Church where the patriot began his legendary midnight ride. Not to be missed are sights like the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum where treasures await, the Bunker Hill Monument, and the USS Constitution Museum.
Can you tear yourself away from such a city that pumps the patriotic lifeblood through America? You might be able to if you know what else New England has to offer. There’s Maine’s Acadia National Park, where nature’s bounty bursts forth in forms of towering pine trees that fill the forest with its organically fresh perfume, stony granite peaks where cool waters lap against its stoic shores, and the woodlands that cover the 47,000-acre park like a green carpet unfurled just for you.
America’s lands may not be lade with castles or fallen fortresses like its European cousins, but with the Breakers, a Vanderbilt mansion that sits in all of its opulent glory on Ochre Point Avenue, Newport, Rhode Island. The mansion is outfitted with seventy rooms on five floors, resting on neatly manicured grounds with its back t to the ocean, just beyond a set of its famous sculpted iron entrance gates.
Touring the Breakers will allow you a feeling of intimacy with the once-wealthiest family in America; a family that encapsulates the meaning of the American dream. Cornelius Vanderbilt II had the mansion constructed in 1893, commissioning famed architect Richard Morris Hunt. The interior of the mansion is crafted with 18th-century elegance and a distinct Louis XVI architectural style expressed by the furnishings and structural embellishments. The estate is the most-visited attraction in Rhode Island, seeing an influx of 450,000 annual visitors.
Mount Washington looms with its 6,288-foot peak, the highest in the Northeastern United States, posing as the greatest dare to climbers with its thrillingly dangerous heights and infamously erratic weather. Perhaps its antithesis is the restful summer colony of Martha’s Vineyard, where New Englanders relax on Adirondacks chairs on the porches of their charming cottages drinking in the wine of the region and the pleasantry of its warm weather.
The best of New England lies in the forests of the region’s national parks, like White Mountain National Forest. This National Forest sets itself aglow with bright oranges, blood reds, and mustard-hued yellows during the fall season. And in the winter, the snow settles in, creating an absolutely irresistible terrain for skiers and snowboarders alike. Similarly, Vermont’s rolling hills are prime ski resorts come winter, especially at Killington Ski Area, a perfect getaway for a day on the slopes and a night inside by a roaring fire.
The heart of New England isn’t in just one place, or a manmade attraction —it’s in the quiet farms that offer visitors cider donuts and maple syrup, it’s the colonial houses decorated for the holidays just as they were when first built, it’s the art of a polo game, and it’s the cities where locals have lived since their ancestors crossed the ocean to escape the crown.
Your Private Luxury Charter to New England
There is no truer patriotism than that of New England, and it’s not a loud, braggadocios revelry (except for on Independence Day), it’s a pride that beats to the drum of history, of unbridled perseverance, and to the rhythm of a mischievously rebellious spirit that no other part of America embodies better than New England—the place where it all began.
