Amazing sail on Columbia.

My wife and I boarded the Columbia with another couple (strangers). The boat was beautiful, scenery was great, and it was a great sail overall despite light winds. And I love being on the water, love boating, etc. But, the experience was a little awkward because it was my wife & I and 2 other strangers in addition to the... More

We chose 12 Meter Charters for our wedding ceremony in August 2015 and I'm glad we did. We had a small group (just immediate family) of 14 adults and 4 children under the age of 6. The ceremony was perfect! 12 Meter Charters provided names of officiants and that helped since we are not from the area. The reason we... More

I would definitely recommend 12 Meter Charters. It's pretty cool sailing on Narragansett Bay in an authentic sailing boat compared to the other Newport charters that pack in their visitors. The whole crew was friendly, welcoming, patient and really went out of their way to make sure everyone had a great time. Well worth it!

This was an outstanding attraction. We went on a windy day and got some real thrills. Crew was very nice. Wear suntan lotion and suggest the best spot to sit is on the back of the boat behind the captain.

We enjoyed a perfect night out on the water. We sailed on Heritage, one of 2 12 meter yachts owned by this company. Gus and crew were friendly & knowledgable about the boat and the area. The sail lasted 2 hrs - 5:30 - 7:30. They answered as many questions as we had. You can choose to help sail or... More

We had an awesome sail aboard Heritage! Captain Gus & his crew were so attentive & made sure everyone had a great time. It was a beautiful day with a strong breeze. The two hours went way to fast! From the time we booked our reservation with Meredith we were given exceptional service! Don't miss your chance to sail with... More

The boat is a legitimate 12-Meter racing boat, with very little modification for crew comfort. Having said that, the crew is great, and there were definitely enough places to sit. The crew was great about having guests participate (raising/lowering sails, taking the helm). An excellent time was had by all.

My boyfriend and I booked this for my birthday and what a fantastic trip it was. The crew was super nice and told us about the beautiful mansions and houses on the cliffs that we passed. Make sure if you do go that sailboats do tilt and people with queasy stomachs may have a difficult time if you aren't used... More

I chartered 12 Meter for Corporate Team Building Sail and my team and I loved it. Everything was great from working with Merideth to book it from sailing with Capt Gus and his crew. The Capt and Crew were great at explaining the more technical parts of sailing and working the boat. In addition, there local knowledge of the history... More
