Take a Private Yacht Charter to an Artist’s Paradise: Monhegan Island

Monhegan Island Harbor

Monhegan Island Harbor

There is an island off the coast of Maine where time appears to stand still. Small, shingled 19th-century homes dot the otherwise undisturbed landscape. Rocky shores, wildflowers, and the Atlantic delight the soul. Monhegan Island attracts those who view life with an artist’s eye, as it has for centuries. Edward Hopper, George Bellows, Rockwell Kent, and others stayed and painted here. You can read more about them in this article.

Visitors come to paint, seek out rare birds, eat fresh lobster, and hike through serene forests. Monhegan Island invites people of all ages to unplug and focus on the sunset instead of their cell phones. One particularly lovely way to pay a visit is via a private charter yacht. Sail into the natural harbor and watch for whales along the way! Read more about this natural wonder here.

Newport, Rhode Island

Board your boat in Newport, Rhode Island.  There are several “must do” things in Newport, “the city by the sea.”  The mansions are on the top of the list. These were merely summer cottages for the rich and famous following the Civil War. One of the best ways to appreciate the sheer beauty of the mansions is by walking the Cliff Walk, a three-and-one-half-mile coastal path that hugs the coastline. Other places to visit include the International Tennis Hall of Fame, the Museum of Yachting, the many galleries and “Antique Alley”. Depart Newport for Martha’s Vineyard.

Cruise Down East from Portland Maine to Camden Maine


Portland Maine Headlands


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.

Newport - The Breakers

The Breakers

The Gilded Age in Newport was all that you could imagine and more, on both land and sea, including life in the opulent mansions and life on the luxury sailing yachts that crowded Newport Harbor. And why not experience the Gilded Age lifestyle when in Newport on your luxury yacht charter? The Dining Room was the center of Gilded Age entertaining, with the opulence of both the Dining room itself and the food served, sometimes 9 courses, designed to impress even the highest sticklers. Step into the center stage of the Gilded age, and experience a private dinner for your group only, in a private mansion, such as the Vanderbilt’s Mansion The Breakers, complete with all of the glitz, glamour and dazzle. And enjoy a specially organized late 1800’s Dinner Menu while visiting Newport; just as those of the Gilded Age visited Newport, on your private luxury yacht.
