Enjoy New England  at its best!

Enjoy New England at its best - bright blue skies, fine sailing and uncrowded harbors!  These fine yachts are ready to sail! 


ASHLANA, Little Harbor 53. Owner/hosts Tom Hampson & Christie MacConnell are eager to make summer last a little longer with a charter or two before they leave for the Caribbean.  Great sailing and a wonderful time to visit Block Island, the Vineyard and Nantucket. 

Accommodations for 4 (max) in 2 cabins.  Master cabin aft has 2 double berths with ensuite head and shower.  Guests may choose one of the two fwd cabins:  The forepeak has 2 lower singles with a filler to make a double, the port forward (crew) cabin has upper/lower singles.  The forward head and shower are shared with the crew.

Guests praise Christie’s cooking and Tom’s sailing skills, and most of all their  gracious hospitality. 

Summer Rates:US$10,700/2    $11, 900/4 plus all.


MELINKA, Swan 80, is available for charter out of Newport through October 14.   

Accommodations for six in three en suite cabins with generous twin berths located aft of the salon.  The master has twin lower singles, port and starboard guest cabins have upper/lower singles. (No double berths.)  Leather upholstery and fine oil paintings lend a ‘gentlemen’s club’ feeling to the salon. 

American Captain Forrest Shropshire, the head of MELINKA’s international crew, has thirty years experience sailing the East coast of the US and the Caribbean.  Chef Maria Teresa Beddoes grew up on the Channel Island of Jersey and speaks fluent French, Spanish and Portuguese.  A second generation professional sailor from Antigua, Mate Jace Hector’ smile brightens every day.
