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.

Thank you for a great 2020 season! We enjoyed sailing with you. Now it is time for us to take off on our own sailing vacation. Looking forward to welcoming you in 2021!

Last year, I took my good friend,Carole Anne, from Amsterdam on a wonderful sail on the AlyKat. In addition to sailing in the bay enjoying the Newport coastline, Kia & Al treated us to a visit to one of the favorite coves for a quiet, peaceful swim. Beautiful!!
It was the perfect day!!
