I arrange one week bare-boat charters out of Newport, RI, e.g., to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Block Island. During the cold months, we go to the Caribbean, e.g., Tortola, BVI.
The boats are typically late model monohulls (sloops) approximately 45’ to 50’ in size with a capacity for 6 to 8, depending on the number of crewmembers, availability at time of booking and other factors. A charter usually costs about $125 per day (cheaper than a hotel), plus travel to and from the venue, provisioning and incidentals.
This is not a commercial venture. Rather, it is based on collecting a group of friends, sharing costs equally and having fun. If you are interested in joining us, please respond with your email address and I will send an outline with full particulars.
Check the calendar for upcoming trips or, if you would be interested in such an excursion with your family or friends on other dates, just let me know.
