The American maritime tradition originates in New England and cruising and yachting remain  favorite pastimes today. A charter along this incredible coastline  immerses you in the local lifestyle, with everything from sandy beaches to clam bakes to whaling museums.

Some of the architecture dates back centuries, and cobblestone streets still guide visitors to bistros and boutiques. A typical eight-day itinerary combines days of relaxation with days of exploration, and includes stops at the world-famous islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.
