Newport, Rhode Island

2nd June 2014

Considered by many to be the yachting capitol of the USA, Newport is a stunning town and host to the annual Newport Charter Show in June.

A magical town of inescapable beauty, the sunrise and sunset over Newport, Rhode Island will bring a tear to your eye. Founded in 1639 and known for pirates and rum runners, it is said that at one point, the law dictated that every citizen was entitled to a cask of rum on a regular basis. Once a busy colonial seaport built around a large, sheltered harbour, today the town has a thriving year-round yachting community and a fantastic selection of marinas to choose from.

Providing easy access to all the cruising grounds of southern New England, during the summer, the harbour becomes jam-packed with charter yachts. Once upon a time, the town was home to the America’s Cup, but now it hosts more yachting events than any other town, offering reliable sea breezes and a fabulous choice of first-class restaurants, assorted boutiques, and a well-preserved downtown that reveals Newport’s colonial history.

This year’s Newport Charter Show is scheduled to run from 23rd to 26th June and will be the 32nd edition of the show. Showcasing luxury chartering and the charter lifestyle, the event is a one-of-a kind show in North America and attracts visitors from around the world.

Talk to your charter broker to book a New England charter vacation or for information on booking an event charter for next year’s Newport Charter Show.
