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.

Cheers,

Al Girard

We had a wonderful one day sail with Kia and Al on August 27th. The weather was perfect, the boat was clean and comfortable, and the hosts were gracious, knowledgeable, and fun. At lunch we bought all kinds of fresh seafood, and Kia and Al not only cooked but also insisted on cleaning the dishes. It was truly a five-star experience. I cannot wait to sail with them again next year. If you are in Newport, it’s a must-have-experience.

A great day on the water! I am a sailor myself and was looking for a sailing opportunity, and I found a great one! Gracious hosts, a lovely boat, and true sailing skill. I can wholeheartedly recommend!
