Sail through Narragansett Bay aboard one of these yachts and host a party that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Don’t forget our classic motor yacht Rum Runner II!  Rum Runner II was built in the 1940’s and is very similar to those built during the height of Prohibition.  Today she now offers the luxury of a classic motor yacht and the intrigue you would imagine of a high-speed bandit with a history all her own. This vessel is 58 feet and can take up to 49 passengers. We also have the stunning yacht Full Moon! The Full Moon has been fully restored and operates both public cruises and private yacht charters out of Newport Classic Cruises at the Bannister’s Wharf. The yacht is Coast Guard Certified for up to 40 passengers, however our recommended number for private events is 28 guests. Yacht Full Moon has a large open bow and open-air back deck to view the sights of Newport! She is equipped with an onboard galley to provide a variety of food services for private events. Full Moon also has a full bar and interior lounge to host small gatherings. 

We are located in the historic Bowens Wharf. Our cruises will depart from there and take you where ever you would like to go for your boat party.

Private yacht charters are available for any unique and special experience. Get the boat all to yourself, as you take to the waters of Newport aboard one of our majestic yachts. The Schooner Adirondack II is certified for up to 57 guests, Schooner Madeleine is certified for up to 49 passengers and the Sloop Eleanor is certified for up to 24 guests although there is no minimum number of guests required for a charter. Unlike many historic schooners, our schooners were built and designed with a spacious cockpit specifically for carrying passengers; so, even with a full boat, all have room to sit and move about the decks comfortably.

All of our classic yachts are U.S. Coast Guard certified and all have U.S. Coast Guard licensed captains and only the most experienced and hospitable crew. Our yachts are equipped with life jackets for all, bathrooms, and beverages on all trips. Whether you’re planning a corporate outing or special event, we are happy to accommodate your specific needs. A variety of catering and bar packages are available upon request.

Meet the newest member of our fleet, Eleanor. Just launched in Albany in May 2016, she’s 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 the perfect boat for more intimate corporate and private sailing charters, leisurely day sails and sunset cruises on Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Sit back, relax and enjoy the beautiful coastal scenery while our experienced captain and knowledgeable crew fill you with the lore of yesteryear while sailing on the bay.

To inquire about Private Yacht Charters availability, you must provide us with a date and a specific time frame. A 1.5 hour minimum is required. Generally this is enough time to sail through Newport Harbor and up to the Castle Hill Light House. We will also sail north under the Newport Bridge upon request.
