Guide to New England

Steeped in yachting history, colourful culture and unsurpassed natural beauty.

A playground of presidents and poets, the gingerbread towns, enchanting islands and vibrant cities that make up the New England region caters to salty sailors and the elite jet set alike. Its distinctive seasonal changes only enhance its pristine beauty, from dazzling snow-clad winter slopes to the crimson-to-gold riches of autumn.

Tucked into the north eastern corner of the United States, New England comprises six states packed full of historic sites, breath-taking scenery and spectacular coastlines varying from craggy cliffs, desolate dunes and lustrous beaches to pretty fishing villages. World-renowned for being a cruising paradise, a luxury yacht charter vacation could last a lifetime in this quintessential land of plenty.

Known as the ‘Ocean State’ for its fabulous stretches of sandy beaches, Rhode Island is synonymous for luxury yachting and plays host to the world yachting capital of Newport. Home to the America’s Cup, Newport’s deeply indented coast of bays, rivers and pretty coves combined with its rich colonial history, world-class restaurants and boisterous nightlife make it an unmissable part of a New England charter itinerary. Don’t miss the famous annual Newport Jazz festival where music lovers descend onto the town to revel in the summer festivities.

Home to the delectable cruising grounds of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, the Elizabeth Island and Buzzard’s Bay, Massachusetts is unrivalled in its natural beauty. From the sheltered harbours of Gloucester you can cruise the 40 mile open water passage to Provincetown and discover the quaint charms and miles of sandy bluffs of Cape Cod.

The Green Mountain state of Vermont is a picture perfect scene of heavily forested landscape with a distinctly laid-back atmosphere and charmingly colourful towns; perfect for experiencing the great outdoors in a beautiful setting. Head to the majestic mountains of New Hampshire for fantastic skiing and winter sports opportunities or explore the rugged yet tranquil coastline and inland lakes throughout the summer.

The sinuous coastline of Maine is dotted with rocky islands and iconic striped lighthouses and backed by imposing mountain landscapes where each village seems more enchanting than the next. Enjoy some huge fresh lobster, sumptuous seafood chowder or a warm slice of blueberry pie in one of the charming bistros along the coast while marvelling at the beautiful vistas. For some pure indulgence explore the winding trails of the renowned Connecticut wineries  before stepping back in time to one of the ‘olde worlde’ coastal towns that are nestled between the sandy beaches.
