The North Eastern United States is one of the top yachting destination in the world. There is nowhere else in the world were captains can yacht through small, quaint coastal towns to major cities just a few miles away.
The major highlight of a yacht trip up the East Coast of the United States is the changing scenery and rich history. There is no shortage of yachting vacation spots on the New England coast line, so we have picked a few of the top yachting destinations that are absolute must-see spots on the East Coast.
Cape Cod, Massachusetts
Cape Cod is the most iconic yacht destination in New England, period. Captains bring their yachts from all over the world, every year and anchor in these famous waters. Visit Nantucket Harbor and Chatham in the surrounding areas as well!
Your summer yachting season is not complete without a trip to Cape Cod.
Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts
Next on your trip, not too far from Cape Cod, it’s the island that sets the bar for small seaside town life: Martha’s Vineyard. It’s the kind of town where people don’t need to lock their doors, and everyone knows your name.
MV is a favorite yachting vacation spot for movie buffs who visit the island in droves every year to see where Jaws was filmed. But that’s not the reason Martha’s Vineyard is one of the top yachting destination in the North East,
Newport, Rhode Island
Much like Martha’s Vineyard, Newport RI is a seaside town that embodies the qualities of hominess. This coastal town is a favorite yachting vacation spot because it truly is a town where you can unwind.
The quaint hustle of Thames Street and the incredible seafood at Bowden’s Wharf are reason enough to go there every year.
No matter where you find yourself this summer, take home with you. Happy yachting from Yacht Management.
