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. One full-sized guest cabin can accommodate up to 2 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.

Janet enjoying catamaran sail

We loved our first sail so much we came back and had a sunset sail last night. Absolutely beautiful. Cooked some burgers on the grill after the sail and enjoyed the evening on the boat. Thank you Al and Kia for such a wonderful experience.

Sailing dogs on catamaran

Thank you so much for such a great trip! We’ve never done a charter before and going out with both of you with our 2 dogs made it the time of our lives! We’re calling again the next time we’re in Newport!
