Dedicated to providing the most perfect hospitality and sailing experience one could find in Newport RI, Newport Classic Cruises hopes for the privilege of escorting you on a breathtaking excursion aboard the most elegant yachts in the local Newport fleet: Schooner Adirondack II, Schooner Madeleine, Sloop Eleanor and Yacht Rum Runner IIWhile visiting Newport, Rhode Island you will find a number of land and water based activities. However, a classic cruise, whether it be a day sail, sunset sail, or sightseeing boat tour is well known to be the quintessential Newport activity that will highlight your stay and be the lasting memory forever.

Home ported in Newport, RI, the "Sailing Capital of the World", a sailing cruise aboard Adirondack II, Madeleine or Eleanor is the experience of a lifetime. On a typical sail cruise or charter, guests will see Newport's stately bayside mansions, a 19th Century military fort and beautiful old lighthouses. The sweeping vistas of Newport and Jamestown will provide the perfect backdrop for your sailing cruise or charter. The Newport RI sightseeing is all about getting on the water by boat and taking it all in while soaking in the sun.

Whether buying tickets for one of our Newport RI Champagne Sunset Sails, afternoon Newport day sail, Cocktail Cruise, Mimosa Sail or Sunset Cruise; or Privately Chartering one of the sailboats for a special family event or corporate event, you will be amazed by their beauty and comfort.
Newport Classic Cruises is a cousin to the well known Classic Harbor Line which is known for operating with amazing sailboats and classic yachts in Boston, New York, and Key West, but they are also renowned for their outstanding hospitality and customer service. You will find your captain and crew extremely capable, accommodating, helpful, and friendly whether you are spontaneously buying tickets for a classic day sail or planning your one-of-a-kind wedding day.

Built in 2016 by Scarano Boat Building, Sloop Eleanor is a custom designed Scarano 48’ sloop that can accommodate up to 24 guests in her roomy cockpit with wrap around seating. Her size and classic lines make Eleanor the perfect for more intimate private boat party.

Built in 1992 by Scarano Boat Building, Schooner Madeleine is a 72 foot sailing beauty.  This yacht was specifically designed and built to carry passengers easily and safely sailing through the local waters of Newport.
