Sailing with just two to six guests, sailing on Starlight is like sailing on your own private yacht. Available exclusively by private charter, Starlight is the perfect boat for sailing with friends, family or special occasions. She has even been the setting for countless engagement proposals.
Starlight is a clean and well equipped O'Day 34. She is 34 feet, comfortable and fun to sail on. Her cockpit, custom stern perch seats, ample deck space and cozy cabin make her the perfect size and design for day sailing around Newport. There is a cooler for drinks and snacks, stereo with I-Pod interface, blankets and jackets for cool evenings.
Pack a small picnic, bring your favorite beverage and come enjoy the spectacular setting as you sail through Newport Harbor, into Narragansett Bay and along the shoreline of Newport's Ocean Drive. Sail past beautiful seaside estates, lighthouses, historic landmarks and world famous yachts. Duck into Brenton or Mackerel Cove for even more stunning sightseeing of yachts and seaside estates. Your friendly, knowledgeable captain will provide you with light, informative commentary.
Take the wheel and experience the thrill of sailing, get some casual instruction or sit back and relax and take in the scenery. Newport is home to one of the prettiest harbors in the country and is the sailing capital of the world!
Available for two or four hour private charters, Starlight sails the longest and the furthest of any of our boats. Sailing on Starlight is like sailing on your best friend's really nice boat!
Boarding and disembarking Starlight is done by taking 2-3 steps up and down a sturdy ladder, permanently attached to the seawall. Guests need to be able to lift their leg about 16-20" over the boat's lifelines and hold on to the ladder to get on and off the boat. You can see a picture of the boarding ladder in Starlight's Photos section. If you have balance or mobility issues, we recommend you consider a sail on Aquidneck which is our most stable vessel with standard stair and handrail boarding.
