Attraction details
Owner description: America's Cup Charters is Newport, RI's premier sailing company chartering the legends of the America's Cup trophy. We’ve been chartering the America's Cup legends since 1986. We also offer daily ticketed sails for individuals. Our fleet includes the illustrious Intrepid - the two time winner of the coveted America's Cup trophy, Weatherly - winner of the America's Cup and also one of the few yachts listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Ted Hood's infamous Nefertiti, and former ocean racer Ted Turner's champion and America's Cup contender American Eagle. Race, train, or just relax aboard the legendary 70' long 12-Meter Class yachts. This can be an interactive hands-on experience, no sailing experience necessary, or a casual relaxing sail. Each yacht has a captain and two crew members on board to interact with our guests. We give people the chance to feel what it's like to be part of an America's Cup experience. The protected waters and predictable breezes of Narragansett Bay make for a comfortable racing and cruising experience.

Went out for the evening sail with Americas Cup Charters aboard the Intrepid. Not a sailor, but it was very enjoyable being aboard these racing yachts. Have a whole new appreciation for the difficulty of the racing participated in by these boats. Americas Cup Charters is a first class organization and I would highly recommend them. My only reason for not giving them 5 stars ( which they really deserve) is that I was hoping to go farther out on our trip into some "bigger water". Guess they don't want to risk making anyone seasick or get them wet.

When sailing aboard our Daily Ticketed Sails, we try to make sure that all on board have an enjoyable experience. Most guests would prefer not to sail in the open ocean where the sea can get a bit rough. Narragansett Bay is a beautiful expansive area to sail in with such beautiful scenery and calmer water making for a comfortable sail for both the novice and experience sailor.

We chartered 2 - 12 meter sailboats and raced against each other.
The crew teaches you what to do and if you'd rather not do anything you don't have to. Great team-building activity. You're in the bay so you don't have waves like in the ocean.

I had to good fortune to find America's Cup Charters on the internet and signed up for a sunset sail. We sailed on Weatherly which is absolutley beautiful former defender of America's Cup. The crew was great and will let you participate as much or as little as you like. The charter is a little more than some others in Newport but well worth it. When you see other sailboats packed with as many people as possible you'll be happy you spent the extra $15.

We just completed our Global Sales Meeting in Newport and America's Cup Charters was a clear hit for the week ... despite the cool/wet weather our group had a thrilling once-in-a-lifetime experience. Rave reviews from each boat on their captains and crew .... definitely a go-to event for the future. Julie did a phenomenal job in coordinating dinner. Home Run to kick off our week. MH
