Chef Prepares cuising on Luxury Yacht Charter

Your own Private Chef

This summer holds a terrific selection of crewed charter yachts available in New England, as many owners that normally send their yachts to the Mediterranean are keeping their yachts closer to home. You can book now for a trip anytime between July 4th and mid-September. On your private yacht charter, experience fresh, clean air and pristine waters. Enjoy being as far away from large crowds as you’d like while relaxing and having fun. 

If you’re a swimmer, hop into the water and swim to a deserted beach to explore, sun-bathe, or simply enjoy the gorgeous views. If you’re not a swimmer, don’t fret—plan a land expedition instead to explore the rich-in-history New England coasts and islands.

Somewhat of an oxymoron, cruising north from Portland Maine to Camden Maine on a private yacht, enjoying a luxury yacht charter is actually cruising Down East in #Maine. However no matter in which actual compass direction you are cruising, the coastline is lovely, including islands and little fishing villages, and the waters are full of New England fish, and lobsters, while the shores are full of clams waiting to be raked or dug. For a special treat, enjoy a fresh lobster bake in clean seawater and seaweed right on the beach for real taste of Maine, followed by wild blueberry pie on a crewed #yachtcharter along the coast of Maine.
