Boston Yacht Getaways
Boston yacht getaways are the ideal respite. You may be visiting Boston for a corporate conference, a family reunion, a “bucket list” tour of our historic landmarks, or you may just live nearby. Here is a unique way to discover the North Shore coastline of New England on your own private yacht.
Whale watching, fishing and relaxing. It is summer in New England!
We help you select from an array of yachts that suit your needs, tastes, interests and desired ports of call. We arrange all those details while you relax and enjoy the New England experience. What better excuse is there for a short work week? Enjoy a refreshing junket on the waters off New England! If you seek a more extended yachting experience, we can help you plan that, too.
A SUGGESTED ITINERARY for a 3-5 day getaway
Day 1: Boston
All aboard at Noon! Head North out of Boston Harbor, skirting Stellwagon Bank, a rich marine ecosystem for migrating whales, to Marblehead Harbor, known for its yachting races and regattas. For a perfect overnight stay, sleep at anchor in the peaceful harbor, or consider spending the night at the Harbor Light Inn in historic downtown.
Day 2: Marblehead and Salem
Explore Marblehead’s “Old Town” after your breakfast. Your yacht is waiting with lunch, beverages, and whatever else you desire; this is, after all, a custom yacht getaway! Another historic must-see is Salem, home to author Nathaniel Hawthorne and his architectural “muse” The House Of Seven Gables. Fun fact: Salem seaport, not Boston, was the original capital of New England colonies, and that rich heritage is visible everywhere. Stroll through history, viewing former sea captains’ mansions. Visit the Peabody Essex Museum (PEM). Sample great seafood restaurants on the water, such as Finz and the Capt’s Waterfront Grill. Explore curiosity and art galleries along Pickering Wharf.
Day 3: Gloucester
Back to your yacht and off to see the Gold Coast of Beverly Farms and Manchester-by-the-Sea, on the way up to Gloucester for the evening. Home to the famous “Lost at Sea” Fisherman statue and the setting for the book and film “The Perfect Storm”, you will be enchanted by Gloucester. This settlement of Portuguese, French Canadians, Irish, Scots, Polish and working-class ambiance is the oldest working seaport in the country. Stay overnight aboard in Gloucester, making some time ashore to savor local culture and music at raucous watering holes like the Rhumb Line, or return to the Harbor Light Inn in Marblehead for the evening. The choice is yours.
