New England Yacht Charter – What To Do

Posted on


I like September. It is my birth month. College and pro football kick off (Go Miami Hurricanes!).  New episode of my favorite TV shows hit the airwaves. It’s also my favorite time to go boating.  Specifically, New England yacht charter vacations.

Late summer means slightly cooler temperatures and fewer crowds. In specific, at the beach, anchorages and marinas.


Nowhere is this more evident than New England (USA).  From Boston, to Martha’s Vineyard, to the Hamptons on Long Island, NY.  It is my favorite time to enjoy The Superyacht Experience™.



Here’s a quick peek at two of my favorite late summer New England yacht charter destinations.  Specifically, Kennebunkport ME and Newport, RI.

Kennebunkport, ME

Photograph of a marina in Kennebunkport, ME. There is 1 small boat anchored in the calm water. The water looks like glass. Perfect reflection. The marina is surrounded by cute little buildings. One has a big lobster painted on the side in red.


Why?  It has the best beaches in the state.  I am convinced God created the gorgeous rocky shoreline for one purpose.  In specific, for the express purpose of taking stunning photographs.

What To Do?  Anchor off Goose Rocks Beach.  Tender ashore. Walk the paved path along the cliffs of Marginal Way.

Where To Eat?  Onboard the yacht, of course!  Your chef prepares using some of the freshest seafood and late summer fruits available in New England.  If you like lobster, Maine is your Mecca.  Join the locals and indulge at the oh-so-casual Clam Shack (2 Western Ave). In addition, go to the Chowder House (79 Pier Road).

Where To Dock?  Try Chicks Marina on the Kennebunk River.  Expect top-notch service from the dockmaster to the dockhands.


Newport RI

Why?   Newport is the famous resort town for New England’s rich and famous.  Before The Hamptons, Newport was the summer escape. In specific, for the Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, and the captains of America’s industrial revolution.   The town has much to see.  For instance,  mansions, superyachts, and summertime music and art festivals.

What to do?  If you love yachts, visit the Newport Boat Show in September. Prefer shopping?  Check out the boutiques on Thames Street.  Take a tour at one of the famous mansions.  Stroll along the picturesque Cliff Walk.

Where To eat?  You can’t eat seafood every meal.  Okay.  Well, maybe you can.  Regardless, pleasant surprises await at the number of Mexican-themed restaurants. For example, Diego’s (Bowen’s Wharf) or Perro Salado.

Where To dock?  The premier facility in town is Bowen’s Wharf.  In addition, the renovated Newport Yachting Center.



In conclusion, New England is a great boating destination for any summer dates.  If you want to escape the heat and the crowds, this is it.  Plan your next yacht vacation in September in New England.  It is amazing!
