Charter Sailboat Base
The Bluenose Yacht Charter base is located roughly 30 minutes from Providence Airport, (PVD), and is the perfect place to start and end your charter. There are numerous supermarkets for provisioning conveniently located between the airport and our charter base. The charter base is well protected and on the property of New England Boatworks, located in Portsmouth, Rhode Island.
Our base is in the heart of Narragansett Bay and offers the best cruising grounds in all of New England. Start your journey with historic Newport, and then cruise East to visit Cuttyhunk, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket or countless picturesque anchorages among the famous Elizabeth Islands. Or, head West and visit Fischer Island, Block Island, Shelter Island, Montauk and more!
I had the pleasure of chartering the Jeanneau 379 from BYC and during our two week charter, we were thoroughly impressed by the comfort, ease of handling and excellent sailing performance. As a life-long cruising sailor and racer on my Swan 48, I appreciated the comfort and performance the Jeanneau 379 provided. The BYC staff was very helpful and we would recommend them and their charter fleet to anyone.
