New England Yacht Charter Adventure
Picture white fences, fresh seafood, and timeless beaches, New England is the true nautical paradise of the United States. It’s beauty can only be compared to that of a Hollywood film and typically, many started here. Martha’s Vineyard is a top Hollywood film sight from the 70s and a highlighted must-see. Surrounding the coastline are yacht clubs, family fun and beachside barbecues. Take time to encompass the historical sites of America as well, located through-out the many corners of Newport, Rhode Island, etc. The beach sites portray true bliss as the sun-shine glistens off the deep blue waters, almost as if it were painted in a picture.
