Our Twelve Meter yachts are docked at the marina at the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina, located at 49 America's Cup Avenue, Newport RI. It's directly across from Trinity Church and just north of Bannister's Wharf in the heart of downtown Newport, a two-block walk from the public parking lot at the Visitor's Center. The yachts will be docked on the main pier; please go past the hotel's Salt Grille restaurant and around the rear of the building to get to the waterfront. Please be on the dock 30 minutes prior to your scheduled departure.
For Parking: We suggest using the Visitor's Center lot, it's easy and inexpensive. There are several other public/private lots throughout downtown Newport within walking distance to the Newport Harbor Hotel and Marina.
