What People Are Saying

"Your fleet of yachts is truly a treasure. No where else in the world are so many Cup winners provided. I would also like to commend Julie Lassy for her diligent effort."

Will Sofrin, Carnegie Abbey

Why Newport

A great event requires a great destination. Newport offers world class hospitality in an outstanding natural setting.

 Historic downtown Newport, RI wraps around it's bustling harbor which opens to the southern tip of smooth and deep Narragansett Bay, only minutes from the open Atlantic Ocean. Location is the key to what makes Newport so unique. Early maritime trade built a thriving colonial town with rich architectural detail, while the predictable cooling summer breezes later attracted the summer colony of the grand mansions. For these same reasons, the New York Yacht Club chose to sail in Newport to host the America's Cup from 1930-2003. Newport sailing is the best sailing venue on the East coast of the United States.

This historic walking town is only 20 miles from RI state airport, has thousands of guest rooms, numerous and varied meeting spaces available, elegant mansions, unique restaurants, world class music festivals and of course 12 Meter sailing. Sail in Newport because it's the home of the largest America's Cup fleet in the world - making it a world class venue for the event of a lifetime.

See why Town & Country magazine (May 2014) listed Newport as the top choice for a summer destination and  charter an America's Cup yacht - for an outstanding event! Emails us for more information on Newport and a 12 Meter Charter. Or please fill out our Information Request Form.
