New England’s Atlantic coastline is a superyacht delight. Stretching from Maine down to Rhode Island, with Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts and Connecticut in between, it’s adored as much for its forest-cloaked mountains and America’s Cup history as it is renowned for its colonial past.
IYC holds the largest charter fleet worldwide, managing more than 115 yachts. With its seasonal offices in Newport, Rhode Island and Nantucket, Massachusetts open from June throughout the summer season, there is no better opportunity to explore IYC’s growing fleet, which includes some of the best yachts available to charter in New England this summer.
Fresh from a 2019 refit with an updated Hampton’s-style interior, 141’ (42.98m) FAR FROM IT enjoys one of the most seasoned captains in the business and an energetic crew of nine who create endless hours of fun with the yacht’s extensive collection of water toys. Alternatively, 91’ 10” (27.99m) DAY ONE, newly-built in 2020, is a contemporary option on which to drink in the regatta race vibes of the world-famous Newport Bucket. A favorite destination for Boston city slickers, the seaside town of Newport comes alive in summer with food and wine festivals.
As the yachting capital of the north, it’s only natural that Newport is a popular choice for charterers. But it’s neighboring Martha's Vineyard, located south of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, that brings home the jazz. The Martha's Vineyard Jazz & Blues Summerfest is one of the hottest and fastest growing festivals in the Northeast, and the island’s harbor towns are an iconic stop off on any New England yachting itinerary. Dropping anchor here aboard a yacht like OCEAN CLUB, which boasts one of the best sun decks in the industry, is a life affirming bucket-list wish for 2022.
In Maine, lobster roll is the order of the day, and Penobscot Bay is the place to catch them. This scenic boating spot is a fisherman’s delight, while the long stretch of beaches will please charter guests of all ages. But for those looking to pair a New England charter with a little New York romance, Long Island Sound is the place to do it. And LE REVE is the yacht to do it on. Offering an excellent arrangement of indoor and outdoor facilities made available by an attentive and professional crew of five, the excitement of New England’s best bits come to the fore.
