Private Sailing Charters

Corporate Events & Company Outings

Looking to host an event in Newport?

Corporate events, sailing the waters off Newport, are the ultimate corporate event experience. Host a summer office party, relax with coworkers, reward your top performers, entertain clients, or treat everyone to a sail when the big meeting is over.

We’ve been hosting company sailing outings for years.  Past corporate clients include Adidas, Boston Beer Works, Blue Cross, Hasbro, Harvard University, Black and Decker, Morgan Stanley, Shields Healthcare, Taco, FM Global, Deloitte Touche, Morgan Stanley, Price Waterhouse Coopers, and countless others.

Aquidneck and Sightsailer are our two most popular sailing vessels boats for corporate events and private sailing charters.  Aquidneck sails with a maximum of 49 guests for private charters while Sightsailer sails with a maximum of 13.  Both boats are specifically designed to take guests sailing and are comfortable, clean, well maintained, and operated by professional, licensed captains and crews.  All of our crews love to sail and it shows! More information about the boats is in the Our Fleet section.

Guests may take the helm and steer, raise sail and turn winches or sit back, relax and take in the sights.  No sailing experience is required.

Food and drink on private charters may be easily arranged.  We have special Yacht Charter Menus with prices provided by excellent local caterers that we’d be happy to share with you.   See our FAQ section for additional info on food and drink.

Sightsailing is located on Bowen’s Wharf, less than a 10-minute walk from all the major hotels and inns in downtown Newport and less than a 10-minute drive from the major hotels in Middletown.  Bowen’s Wharf is a historic wharf and the heart of the waterfront district with many excellent restaurants close by. Other pickup locations include the Newport Yachting Center, New York Yacht Club, and Conanicut Marina in Jamestown.

For more information or to book your corporate event aboard one of our boats, please submit a Private Charter Inquiry Form or Contact Us.
