People are Talking…

We’re always eager to hear what our guests have to say about their sailing experience on AlyKat. We’re confident that if you sail with us, you too will agree that NewportKat is the premiere catamaran charter in Newport.

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!

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.

Nantucket sunset

Thank you Kia & Al for a magical week of sailing. You brought us to some wonderful places & we now have fabulous memories of the sunset + moonrise at Menemsha, tranquility of Lake Tashmoo, quaint Nantucket and the hidden treasure of Quissett.  You were both very generous hosts and experienced Captain and 1st Mate.  We were amazed by how quickly and well the boat sailed and the comfort of our cabin.  We hope to sail with you again soon!

Sailing with Al and Kia was the highlight of our Newport trip. Experienced, knowledgeable, and great hosts. Took a 2 hour sail for a birthday weekend and couldn’t be happier. Took us to a beautiful, secluded spot for a swim, snacks, and good conversation. Al and Kia were incredibly nice and made us feel very welcome, and had great suggestions for things to do around town. Definitely make a sail on AlyKat priority for your trip to Newport.

Family time on catamaran

My husband has been dreaming about owning a Catamaran and I wanted to surprise him with a sail. Newport Kat made it possible for us to have that opportunity. We were able to get our daughters and their boyfriends to join us for the day which made it even more enjoyable. Kia and Captain Al were waiting for us and they made us feel welcome before we were even on board. The hospitality they offer is genuine and sincere which makes it really easy to relax. Hanging out on the trampoline with our kids and listening to music as we watched the sails unfurl was pure heaven. Later we stopped to do some paddle boarding and had lunch at the table on the deck. Captian Al and Kia were very helpful to inexperienced paddle boarders and had us up and running in no time! We were then given an informative tour of Newport Harbor and learned a lot of interesting facts about the waterfront. We also enjoyed looking at the variety of boats that we saw along the way. We had a perfect day with family that we will look back on and value for years to come.

Sailing on a catamaran is relaxing

Gorgeous day on Alykat catamaran with fabulous friends. Had my first paddle board experience. Can’t wait till my next sail next month. Kia thanks for an incredible day.

Fresh seafood with dingy

Chartering with NewportKat will be the best decision you make while in Newport. The Boat, Crew and Vibe are perfect. We set sail on a four hour tour (sorry Gilligan!), and had an awesome day. The weather was a little uncooperative in the beginning of our sail, but Capt Al adapted and came up with numerous ideas to maximize our day. Needless to say the weather cleared up and the winds came on and we had a great day on the water. With Catp. Al and Kia we would have had a great day even without the weather change, they are knowledgeable, accommodating and most importantly nice!

The boat is equipped for offshore sailing so no matter what the conditions you will still feel comfortable and pampered. The trampoline up front is so nice you may never explore any other part of the AlyKat.

Thanks again Al and Kia we had a blast!, Hope to sail with you again very very soon!
