Newport, Rhode Island located in the heart of New England, with its dramatic coastal scenery is considered the yachting hub of the Northeast Seaboard. It offers state of the art shipyards, first class marina facilities, shoreside attractions that include fine dining, shopping, gilded mansions, galleries and festivals all within walking distances from the waterfront. Close to the outlying Islands of Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and Block Islands makes it an appealing port of call for crew and their owners/guests.
