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 will start taking reservations for the 2023 season on May 1st.

What an amazing day! You were wonderful hosts – could not have been more hospitable and kind! We absolutely loved our trip out to Jay Leno cove and had a blast swimming, cruising + relaxing. You both exceeded every expectation! (And can’t wait to take you up on New Zealand recommendations!)

THANK YOU SO MUCH for a fantastic trip, wonderful and exciting stories and an amazing day out in Newport. We can’t wait to come back for another sail. This was an anniversary we will never forget and we can’t wait to make this an annual trip! THANKS!!
