It offers a variety of scenery, islands, anchorages, and cultural diversity for  a luxury sailing, or motor-yacht charter vacation.

During the late spring and summer months the region becomes alive with luxury yachting vacation options. Many of the charter yachts that spend the winter in the Caribbean or Bahamas, re-position to New England for the summer charter season. Luxury catamarans, sailing yachts,  motor yachts and motor sailors make New England their summer base, enjoying Cape Cod, Maine, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard, Newport Rhode Island and other popular locations.
