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.

Thanks for a great season!  Stay tuned for our 2023 dates….

Trampoline time on catamaran

Catamaran outing

This was by far the best boat trip we have had to date since we have been in Newport! We have been here for 18 years & this was the best cruise Ever!

Thank you Al & Kia for a wonderful cruise! You are the best!
