Boat was in excellent form, crew was very friendly and engaged with those on board. Booking was simple through the Attwater hotel and everything was on time and beyond expectations. Highly recommend!

We went on Nefertiti on a very breezy day, the breezier the better. Great crew, boat and views. You get to help raise the sails and steer, sorry sailors I don't know the technical terms.

This company provides sail charters Columbia and Heritage; we sailed Heritage, a 1970 12-meter yacht. We chose this over a more sedate (and perhaps a bit less expensive) schooner cruise, and weren't disappointed. There were 3 crew and 16 passengers on board, with room in the cockpit for maybe 6?, 2-3 more on the afterdeck, and the remainder on the... More

We chartered two boats in connection with a corporate meeting. The crews of the boats were knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. We were able to "work" the equipment on the racing yachts, giving us all a great experience.

My company had our annual employee outing last week in Newport, ending with a three hour sail from 12 Meter Charters. They were a pleasure to work with from the planning and payment stages, informing us about what to bring and expect, and accommodating special requests. In addition, the crew were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We felt very involved, they... More

Spending a beautiful August afternoon on a 12 Meter yacht in Newport was awesome enough, but given the opportunity to participate as part of the crew racing against another 12 Meter was exceptional! Be adventurous! The captain and crew were very professional but also fun and informative. Experience first hand what Newport is all about!

Even if you are not a sailor while visiting Newport this is not an excursion to be missed. The staff is knowledgeable and very attentive. This excursion captures some of Newport's hisory as well as the history of the sport of saiiling. I would highly recommend this adventure

We had another perfect sail. Seems 12 Meter Charters has connections with the weather gods whenever we book a sail. It was the usual afternoon southwest wind blowing at 10 to 15 knots with plenty of sunshine. Heritage had a fair amount of maintenance done during the winter and it showed. The wooden hull glistened and the topsides were refinished.... More
