Newport Classic Yacht Regatta Begins on August 26th

Summer is here, and that means it is absolutely the best time to experience the northeast coast of the US, and particularly New England! If you are a yachting fan, and have not made your summer vacation plans yet, mark your calendars, you won’t want to miss the Annual Panerai Newport Classic Yacht Regatta coming up next month!

This year, the 38th Annual Panerai Newport Classic Yacht Regatta (PNCYR), and the Panerai Herreschoff Classic Yacht Regatta (PHCYR) have been consolidated into a four-day celebration of classic yachts that will now be known as the Narragansett Bay Classic Yacht Rendezvous.

The regatta will kick off Saturday, August 26th with a race from Bristol to Newport followed by racing on lower Narragansett Bay on Sunday, August 27th. Additionally, there will be a collection of classic motor yachts rallying from Bristol to Newport on Saturday, congregating at the Alofsin Piers at Fort Adams after a fabulous day of racing.

In a statement to the press, event co-chair Jamie Hilton said, “We’re bringing together people who have a passion for motor and sail. In the future, this event has the potential here in Newport – the sailing capital of the U.S. – to rival some of the classic yacht events in Europe.”


Special Yacht Charter During The Newport Regatta

One of our most popular South Florida based charter yachts, Gravitas, is now docked in Newport. She is available for charter during the Regatta, or to explore all New England and Long Island have to offer! The charter yacht, Gravitas, is a 57 foot Sunseeker predator that was just made for cruising the waters in and around New England. She is currently docked at the world renowned Newport Yachting Center Marina.

Between Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New Hampshire and Maine there is almost too much to see and enjoy on a New England yacht charter vacation. Because of the speed and range of the Gravitas, all of these diverse areas are within reach!


You can take a long-term charter and enjoy what they all have to offer, skipping from one coastline to the next, or you can decide to choose just one area that suits your fancy, such as the excitement of the Hamptons, or the profound serenity of Cape Cod. A great way to enjoy a New England yacht vacation is to plan it around one of the legendary festivals that the area is known for, such as the Newport Yacht Regatta, from the deck of your own luxury yacht!
