    46ft Soubise Sailing Catamaran Boat Cruise in Newport, Rhode Island

    Claude's catamaran was amazing. The boat was very large and well taken care of. He provided us with perfect instructions that were easy to follow to meet them on the boat via a water taxi. It was a very foggy day and we felt very safe on the boat. The sailing was amazing. We especially loved how large the boat was, with 6 adults we had plenty of space to hang out. We brought our own food from the Cru Cafe which we also recommend. We loved sailing with Claude and Skye and would love to return one day.

    PRIVATE and SAFE Newport Harbor Tour, Picnic and Swim

    I cannot recommend Doug and Marcia enough! I wish I could give more than 5 stars. My boyfriend and I had the best day on their boat - they were extremely accommodating, communicative prior and during our trip, as well as went above and beyond for us! We couldn’t be more thankful, and we’re so excited to do another experience like this with them in the future! Thank you SO much again!!

    34' Mainship Pilot Power Boat for charter with Captain in Newport, Rhode Island

    Our day sailing around Newport harbor was hands-down the best part of our vacation here in Newport. The boat was immaculate, Charles and his wife Vanessa were the BEST hosts (and were WONDERFUL with 3 young children on board!), and the trip itself was perfect for our family - an experience none of us will ever forget and made the day perfect. There are not enough kind words to describe how wonderful everything was. If ever you find yourself in Newport, and are looking for a personalized, special, and memorable experience - this is the boat for you.
