Clarke’s Cook House, Newport, RI

Between the 1850s and the early 1900s, Newport, RI was going through an interesting transformation. It had spent nearly a hundred years as a sleepy New England town, all but abandoned after the British blockades on land and sea made it difficult to access Newport during the Revolutionary War. But the refreshing sea breeze of Newport offered sailors a perfect place to unfurl their sails and provided a comfortable place to stay cool during the hot summer—for those who could afford the privilege. This combination eventually led to Newport becoming a paradise for wealthy industrial-age yachters in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s with wealth so ostentatiously displayed in pre-income tax America, that the period was coined “The Gilded Age.”

Many of us travel to learn more about the culture and history of different parts of the world. Compared to other countries, America is still a young, fledgling country, which means it has plenty to offer those interested in exploring its roots. When we look back at America’s beginnings, New England was front and center. The area is brimming with colonial history, so it’s a fabulous choice for those looking to explore the past while also enjoying relaxation and vacation fun.

Experiencing colonial America on a crewed yacht charter cruising in New England is one of the best (and most enjoyable) ways to explore this region. It’s also an opportunity to feel like a real colonist traveling by sea from port to port, just as was often done in colonial times. Not to mention, a private charter yacht cruise through New England is the perfect combination of colonial history and modern-day luxury, with as much beach and water time as you desire mixed in. Some travelers may be close enough to drive to a point of departure for a New England charter yacht trip, making it an even more attractive option. But it’s also easy to book a flight, and well worth it, as New England has plenty to offer to charterers from all over the world.

With so much to see and do in each location, we’ve selected a few highlights (with a bit of colonial history) about each stop to give a sense of all that awaits. Even better, we have also included links to additional resources we’ve compiled. Feel free to dig deeper into the stops that really pique your interest. And, of course, we’re here to help you every step of the way to create a truly personalized New England yacht charter vacation.
