Welcome Aboard!

NewportKat 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 comfortably 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.

Birthday sail on catamaran charter

Last week I went on a cruise for my birthday with some girlfriends. It was amazing! Such a beautiful day and a beautiful boat. It was so nice to relax and be out on the water. Kia and Al were the best hosts, made the trip so fun and relaxing. Thank you again! I’ll be back with more friends and family this summer!
