Imagine yourself sailing aboard a private yacht. Crystal blue waters surrounding you, the cool ocean breeze sweeping your face, a five star chef at your beck and call, and not a worry in the world on your mind. A private yacht charter is the perfect way to escape the crowds and experience luxurious relaxation. You don’t have to look too far for an amazing experience—we recommend a trip through the islands and along the beautiful New England coast. Enjoy the beauty, colonial history, and quaint fishing villages with a full-service private captain, chef, and crew to attend to your every need.
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.
If you’d like to stay aboard the entire visit and stay remote, just say the word. You’ll be taken care of in a lovely, isolated anchorage by your full-service crew and five-star chef. This is YOUR trip—you have the ability to work with your private yacht charter broker to establish a customized plan at your pace and comfort level, making the get-away as exclusive as you would like it to be.
