      Steve and Bec were amazing hosts and captains on their sail yacht. We enjoyed hearing about some of the history of Newport and had a very relaxing night cruise, and loved hanging with their dog Elle! Steve was extremely responsive when booking and make sure everything was easy for us. We look forward to coming back to Newport and taking another ride on Calypso!

      Cannot recommend this boat and crew enough! Steve, Bec, and Chris did a fabulous job and delivered on a perfect day. From sailing around Newport down to the delicious lobster rolls. Steve and Bec are great owners and Chris made sure we were all taken care of. We will definitely be back! Thanks again.

      Great trip! Steve and Bec were great hosts and we loved their little furry co-captain Ellie (the cutest and sweetest pup) We had a romantic sunset cruise and our hosts provided a great atmosphere, interesting history about Newport, took lots of great pictures and kept the drinks flowing! We were celebrating a birthday and the experience was perfect. In terms of two people to take us out, Steve and Bec were the perfect couple to enjoy an evening sailing with.

      Experience Newport RI with us! - Charter Sailing Yacht

      We (4 adults and two seven year-old boys) had a lovely four-hour sail with Patrick and Monika. They were the perfect hosts, sharing both their gorgeous boat and their day with us out on the water. There was plenty of space to relax on-board while Patrick pointed out sights of interest and even stopped along the journey so that the two boys could take a dip in the bay during our sail. Could not have asked for a more perfect Sunday afternoon in Newport!

      Steven and Bec are amazing. From the first request I put through several months ago to the day we sailed on August 28th, the communication, the detail and the experience has been hard to beat! Steven and his first mate, Chris, took us for a 4 hour boat ride around Newport harbor. Not only were they friendly and knowledgeable but they were also so accommodating and helpful with getting our drinks and snacks. While we brought our own drinks and food, they can literally curate any experience! Could not more highly recommend!
