    25' Catalina Classic Pocket Cruiser "Double Diamond" Sailing Yacht Charter with Captain Mike in Providence, Rhode Island

    This is 25 feet boat so you have to be ready to move around when needed. We had great time with Mike. I learned how to steer and navigate. He provided a lot of interesting information about sailing. This is amazing feeling when you catch wind and start going 5-6 knots.

    38ft Safari a Downeast Lobster Motor Yacht Rental in Newport, Rhode Island

    I highly recommend Christian’s Downeast Lobster Motor Yacht. This boat has plenty of room and a lot of character. We were very glad we picked this boat over the other typical speed boats for our daylong tour. Christian gave us a wonderful experience and an excellent tour of the area. I would definitely book Christian’s boat again.

    42' Sailboat "J/42 Affinity" Cruising Monohull Sailing Charter in Newport, Rhode Island

    The Captain contacted me immediately after i posted my interest on the app. Exchanged a couple of messages and i arranged the payment through the app, which was efficient and secure. The day of the sail we were met right on time and took only a short walk to get on the boat. Once we were aboard we sit back and enjoy the sail. We felt very comfortable and,above all, we felt safe as we knew we were in the good hands of an experienced sailor, which also happened to be a very friendly and interesting person. No doubt I will sail with him on my next visit to Newport.
