Welcome Aboard!

Newport Kat LLC is our private sailing charter based out of Newport RI. We’re a husband and wife team, and really enjoy sharing our love of sailing with our guests. Our boat, AlyKat, is a 41-foot catamaran sailboat that can accommodate up to 6 people for a day sail. Two full-sized cabins can accommodate up to 4 guests for multiple-day and overnight sails.

Whether you want to explore destinations away from Newport, or you want to keep Newport as your vacation base, we can customize all trips to suit your needs and destinations wishes. If you want to learn how to sail a catamaran or learn general seamanship I will tailor the sail to be a great learning experience.

Take a look around our site to learn more, or jump in and contact us to describe what your perfect sail experience would include.

Please note that due to the Corona virus we have delayed the start of our season until June 27th. Until further notice face masks are required on the launch and on our vessel when social distancing is not possible. We are currently taking reservations from June 27th through Labor Day so please contact us to reserve your summer sailing adventure.

Beautiful evening sunset

We had the most wonderful time on the boat with Captain Al and Kia! They were the best hosts and were very accommodating. I would recommend this trip to anyone living or visiting Newport and looking for a unique experience.

If not on the boat...get off and swim

You both warmly welcomed us on your vessel with big smiles and open arms.  The experience allowed the family to bond and forget about life’s trials and tribulations. From the bottom of our hearts thank you for your love and time. You gave us an unforgettable night of laughs, love, good views and memories.
