The America's Cup boats are some of the finest and fastest sailboats, and Heritage is one of the best of them. My friends and I were picked up at 5:15 on time, on Thames St. for a two hour sail in Newport harbour and beyond. The crew were very friendly, and made us feel safe while having fun. We were...

There is no better way to see the beautiful Newport fireworks than by boat and 12 Meter Charters was fantastic! The crew was friendly, knowledgeable and ensured we all had a great time. Highly recommend!

I was lucky enough to enjoy this amazing experience and it was a magical day! I have never been sailing like this before and it was truly a one of a kind day. The staff was very friendly and informative and i enjoyed every minute. If you have the opportunity to ever sail with 12 Meter Charters TAKE IT!!!!!

We sailed the Heritage during a friend's bachelorette weekend. As a group of 15 girls, we aren't the most easily impressed, but we loved our trip! We had a 2-hour sail on the Newport harbor, with a fun, experienced, and extremely helpful crew! They even brought us mimosas ;). It was also quite easy to organize, and they were quite... More

This is by far my favorite thing to do in the summer months. Meredith is extremely helpful and makes sure everyone is well taken care of before getting on board. Gus is very charismatic and easy on the eyes, and while I'm not sure where he learned so many 'fascinating' stories about the many sites, he had my full attention!... More

my wife and I decided to go on a sailing adventure, rather than the usual boring harbor cruise, and it was a great decision. the 12 meter crew takes you on a real racing sail boat so you can experience real sailing, and we did. they even let you help a little if you would like, so you get the...

We went sailing on Saturday June 20th. Had a great time Captain Duncan and his crew were very knowledgeable. We felt like we had a real sailing experience...even if it involved some 'listing' of the ship! Would highly recommend.

I planned my friend's bachelorette party weekend in Newport and we rented the Heritage sailboat for a group of 15 girls. We had the BEST time! The staff was so nice and at our service the whole time. The boat was perfect for our group of 15. I think they said it holds up to 16 but that may have... More
