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.

We are currently taking reservations from September 2nd – 23rd.

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!

Lori and Bill all set for their charter sail on the AlyKat

We loved our sail on this beautiful catamaran and have taken trips on it several times. We couldn’t have asked for better hosts than Kia and Al. Low-key, good food and drinks, and great music!
