Welcome Aboard!

NewportKat 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 comfortably 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.

We had such a lovely time on the Newport Kat! Kia and Al are amazing and lounging on the front of the boat on the bean bags over the water in the sun was just wonderful and relaxing! We had such a great time I would highly recommend the Newport Kat if your looking for a fun day out on the water or a sunset cruise!
