The Newport Charter Yacht Show 2023 Highlights

With a large, sheltered harbor within Narragansett Bay, Newport was the delightful and picturesque setting for the 35th Newport Charter Yacht Show which took place June 19-22, 2023. Situated directly between New York City and Boston, Newport is a great destination for summertime charters, and for charter yachts who plan to spend the summer in New England or along the Eastern seaboard, the Newport Charter Yacht Show was the perfect way to start the season. The scope of the show also encompassed the Bahamas, with The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism/Investments & Aviation the presenting sponsor.

The four-day event focused around the display of luxury crewed charter yachts ranging in size from the 57’ sailing yacht Vanishing Point to the 191’ motor yacht Unbridled . The show drew nearly 100 charter brokers eager to inspect these yachts firsthand, and find the perfect choice for clients interested in this region.

Here are a few of our favorite yachts in attendance:

118 Ft. M/Y XOXO: Sleeps 10 guests in 5 cabins.

125 Ft. M/Y Sea Axis: Sleeps 12 guests in 5 cabins.

100 Ft. M/Y Magnum Ride: Sleeps 8 guests in 4 cabins.

Throughout the show, educational seminars and panel discussions were held by charter yacht industry experts to share updates on new technologies, changes in maritime law, and to promote charter-friendly resorts and enchanting destinations.

The show also featured several competitions, including the ever-popular Chef’s culinary competition. The theme, A Junkanoo of Hors d'oeuvre, featured hors d’oeuvres, appetizers and small plates. The chefs presented their dishes to the judges, explaining their chosen ingredients and how they prepared their entry.

Winning was Chef Nicole Ackerman from M/Y Unbridled . With shellfish as her protein, Chef Nicole presented masa seared scallops on the half shell with Jerusalem artichoke purée, pickled mushrooms, pickled baby fennel, and kale oil; butter poached Spanish prawns in a charred pink pineapple and red curry sauce with toasted peanut crunch and burnt lime; and a raw board of caviar cones with almond foam, lemon zest, and herb oil, razor clam ceviche with mango-heirloom tomato salsa, avocado crema, and salsa verde, and crispy potato skins with wild garlic cream and caviar.

Perhaps best fostering the spirit of camaraderie was the Captain and Deck Challenge, with seven participating crews competing in a 3-part competition that included fender inflation (fastest time), floral design, and yoga. The best overall performance in all three disciplines was the 125’ M/Y Sea Axis .

The Tablescaping Competition attracted 9 yachts, with the 157’ M/Y Mirabella winning the Professional Judges’ award. The 112’ M/Y Spirit won the “Fan Favorite” award (as voted by brokers and show attendees) for its modern floral take on the Amalfi Coast fused with New England charm. Taking first place in the Signature Cocktail Competition sponsored by Espolòn Tequila, was the 85’ M/Y Lexington with its Azure Blue cocktail. For its vibrant “Disco” theme, the 133’ M/Y Serenity won the Herman Pundt Best Yacht Hop award.

Newport Charter Yacht Show 2023

19th — 22nd june 2023.

Newport, Rhode Island is known for many things, not the least of which are plentiful coastal areas and easy access to the ocean, making it the perfect setting for the Newport Charter Yacht Show presented by The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation.

Since its inception over 35 years ago, the four-day event, scheduled for Monday, June 19 through Thursday, June 22, has grown into New England’s marquee trade show for brokers, agents, managers, captains, and crews whose livelihoods depend on the luxury charter yacht industry.

It is staged not in a hotel ballroom but at Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard, which owns and produces the Show at its 10-acre waterfront facility in the heart of downtown Newport. Networking gatherings, educational seminars, and special events all take place dockside and aboard 17 registered (to date) yachts that serve as platforms for adventure during New England’s high summer charter season.

“Newport has long been the gateway to New England, especially for yachtsmen and yachtswomen,” said Show Director Veronica Brown, “and it is the goal of the Show to highlight for the attendees all there is to see and do in this part of the country while the participating charter yachts reveal what they, specifically, can offer that is unique and different for charter guests.”

The Newport Charter Yacht Show , which takes place at the Newport Shipyard, Newport, R.I., guarantees charter boat owners, brokers, agents and boating aficionados a convenient one-stop location for presenting and exploring the endless possibilities of luxury chartering. The event is the only one of its kind in the U.S. and while catering principally to the charter trade, it also allows discriminating consumers (attending with brokers) to learn more about dream vacations on one of the many world-class yachts that will be present. The NCYS will also showcase ancillary goods and services aimed at captains and crew and host a series of industry-focused seminars on destination cruising, maritime law and new technology.

newport ri charter show

The fundamental concentration of this event will evolve around a global display of luxury yachts from 50’ to over 250’ offered for Charter as well as the many services and excellent amenities accessible to support charter yachts and their professional crews. While the vessels being presented will epitomize primarily the Charter Yacht industry, it is also believed that the combination of on-land exhibitors will add to the ambiance and offer value for the yacht captains, crew members and those planning a Charter experience in the future. Only those exhibitors whose products and services fit within the parameters will be allowed to exhibit.

Newport Charter Yacht Show: Connecting the Dots in the Charter Yacht World

' src=

Charter yacht brokers are setting their sights on Newport, R.I. where an intriguing array of fully crewed luxury yachts will be awaiting their inspection during the 2023 Newport Charter Yacht Show. Scheduled for Monday, June 19 through Thursday, June 22, the four-day event has been serving as the charter yacht industry’s premier trade gathering in the Northeast for over 35 years and kicks off the New England charter season.

“I’ve been coming to the Newport Charter Yacht Show for 20-plus years, and it’s one of my favorites,” said Allison Cecilio, a charter broker who earlier this year became a charter manager for Denison Yachting and represents the 133’ M/Y  Serenity,  which is making its debut in the New England market and its first major Charter Show appearance. She explained that charter yacht shows take place in all different parts of the world; however, this one – presented, owned and produced by Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard at its 10-acre waterfront facility in the heart of downtown Newport – shines brightly as a beacon for one of the world’s most distinguished yachting destinations and the broader whole of New England, which trends as a feted cruising destination during the USA’s summer months.

“It’s more welcoming and intimate than other shows…a great vibe and kickoff to the New England charter season,” added Cecilio. “They roll out the red carpet whether you are a charter manager, broker or other industry professional.”

As a manager, Cecilio represents yacht owners and communicates with them as well as their captains and crews about the yacht’s availability for charter, any changes that have taken place (either structurally or with personnel) and what offerings are being made, from water toys available to a chef’s cuisine specialties. She then acts as a wholesaler for her clients, the charter yacht brokers who, in this case, are retailers “shopping” for options to present to end users: those looking for highly personalized, moreover exquisitely unforgettable, vacations aboard crewed luxury yachts. Among  Serenity ’s unique selling points are a 2022 interior refit, a 900 square foot master suite; a full-service elevator from below guest accommodations; and a sundeck jacuzzi with a waterfall. “ Serenity  exudes luxury and hosts amenities unlike any other charter yacht in her class.”

Working with Cecilio at Denison Yachting is Jennifer M. Saia, a charter specialist who both consults with  Serenity ’s management team and books yacht charters. “Going by the list of yachts registered thus far, it seems that more than 75% of them are new to this Show,” said Saia, “which will help draw more charter brokers to come and check out the new products for not only this Summer but also for their respective Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons too!”

Among other new additions to the Show this year are the 157’ M/Y  Mirabella , so far the largest vessel registered; the 125’ S/Y  Kaori , to date the sole sailing vessel;   and the   79’  SOL , a striking solar powered catamaran.

Both  Mirabella  and  Kaori  are being presented by Northrop & Johnson. Adam Fitzmaurice, who represents  Mirabella , says continuing to register vessels year-after-year is indicative of his company’s deep commitment to the Show. “It’s a showcase not only for the yachts but also for our chefs and crew members, who are the most important element of any charter. As well,  Kaori will be participating in the 2023 Newport Yacht Rendezvous   (which follows the Show on Friday, June 23 and benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Newport County), because the owners believe in giving back.”

This is  Kaori’ s first charter show since her major refit and return to the East Coast. Built by Palmer Johnson in 1991, she has been updated to the latest technology and design over the years by her loving owners and in 2021 underwent extensive interior upgrades and installation of NAIAD zero speed stabilizers.

“ Kaori  is the outlier, being a truly adept sailing vessel yet built with the power cruising capability for world-wide expeditions,” said the yacht’s owner Dan Stabbert, adding that  Kaori  has circumnavigated the world four times. “We have sailed  Kaori  from Alaska to South America and yet we have been able to show off her capabilities to only a handful of charter brokers. We felt the Newport Charter Yacht Show was the venue to best communicate what  Kaori  means to today’s new era of environmentally responsible families who desire the ocean experience…we want the charter community to understand the wonders of sailing yachts and the difference such a uniquely designed yacht can make when exploring the wonders of this world.”

Built in 2004 by Trinity Yachts and refitted in 2018,  Mirabella  is impeccably maintained; with sensational five-star service and plenty of tenders and recreational equipment, she is a standout in the Northrop & Johnson fleet.

According to Sandy Carney, a broker with Sanderson Yachting, as intriguing as new yachts can be, returning yachts are equally important to the Newport Charter Yacht Show mix, since many can have updates to décor and amenities, crew, central agents and more. Examples of yachts returning from 2022 are the 110’ M/Y  Freedom , represented by Yacht Connexion, and the 85’ M/Y  Lexington  represented by Blue Oceans Yachting. “I’m always excited to see ‘new’ yachts at the Show and meet new crew,” said Carney, “but networking with returning crew and central agents helps build relationships. There are so many moving parts in a private yacht charter that it helps to know with whom I’m working.”

NEWPORT, R.I. (April 28, 2023) – Charter yacht brokers are setting their sights on Newport, R.I. where an intriguing array of fully crewed luxury yachts will be awaiting their inspection during the 2023  Newport Charter Yacht Show  presented by  The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation . Scheduled for Monday, June 19 through Thursday, June 22, the four-day event has been serving as the charter yacht industry’s premier trade gathering in the Northeast for over 35 years and kicks off the New England charter season.

“I’ve been coming to the Newport Charter Yacht Show for 20-plus years, and it’s one of my favorites,” said Allison Cecilio, a charter broker who earlier this year became a charter manager for Denison Yachting and represents the 133’ M/Y  Serenity,  which is making its debut in the New England market and its first major Charter Show appearance. She explained that charter yacht shows take place in all different parts of the world; however, this one – presented, owned and produced by  Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard  at its 10-acre waterfront facility in the heart of downtown Newport – shines brightly as a beacon for one of the world’s most distinguished yachting destinations and the broader whole of New England, which trends as a feted cruising destination during the USA’s summer months.

“It’s more welcoming and intimate than other shows…a great vibe and kickoff to the New England charter season,” added Cecilio. “They roll out the red carpet whether you are a charter manager, broker or other industry professional.”

As a manager, Cecilio represents yacht owners and communicates with them as well as their captains and crews about the yacht’s availability for charter, any changes that have taken place (either structurally or with personnel) and what offerings are being made, from water toys available to a chef’s cuisine specialties. She then acts as a wholesaler for her clients, the charter yacht brokers who, in this case, are retailers “shopping” for options to present to end users: those looking for highly personalized, moreover exquisitely unforgettable, vacations aboard crewed luxury yachts. Among  Serenity ’s unique selling points are a 2022 interior refit, a 900 square foot master suite; a full-service elevator from below guest accommodations; and a sundeck jacuzzi with a waterfall. “ Serenity  exudes luxury and hosts amenities unlike any other charter yacht in her class.”

Working with Cecilio at Denison Yachting is Jennifer M. Saia, a charter specialist who both consults with  Serenity ’s management team and books yacht charters. “Going by the list of yachts registered thus far, it seems that more than 75% of them are new to this Show,” said Saia, “which will help draw more charter brokers to come and check out the new products for not only this Summer but also for their respective Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons too!”

Among other new additions to the Show this year are the 157’ M/Y  Mirabella , so far the largest vessel registered; the 125’ S/Y  Kaori , to date the sole sailing vessel;   and the   79’  SOL , a striking solar powered catamaran.

Both  Mirabella  and  Kaori  are being presented by Northrop & Johnson. Adam Fitzmaurice, who represents  Mirabella , says continuing to register vessels year-after-year is indicative of his company’s deep commitment to the Show. “It’s a showcase not only for the yachts but also for our chefs and crew members, who are the most important element of any charter. As well,  Kaori  will be participating in the  2023 Newport Yacht Rendezvous  (which follows the Show on Friday, June 23 and benefits the Boys & Girls Club of Newport County), because the owners believe in giving back.”

This is  Kaori’ s first charter show since her major refit and return to the East Coast. Built by Palmer Johnson in 1991, she has been updated to the latest technology and design over the years by her loving owners and in 2021 underwent extensive interior upgrades and installation of NAIAD zero speed stabilizers.

“ Kaori  is the outlier, being a truly adept sailing vessel yet built with the power cruising capability for world-wide expeditions,” said the yacht’s owner Dan Stabbert, adding that  Kaori  has circumnavigated the world four times. “We have sailed  Kaori  from Alaska to South America and yet we have been able to show off her capabilities to only a handful of charter brokers. We felt the Newport Charter Yacht Show was the venue to best communicate what  Kaori  means to today’s new era of environmentally responsible families who desire the ocean experience…we want the charter community to understand the wonders of sailing yachts and the difference such a uniquely designed yacht can make when exploring the wonders of this world.”

Built in 2004 by Trinity Yachts and refitted in 2018,  Mirabella  is impeccably maintained; with sensational five-star service and plenty of tenders and recreational equipment, she is a standout in the Northrop & Johnson fleet.

According to Sandy Carney, a broker with Sanderson Yachting, as intriguing as new yachts can be, returning yachts are equally important to the Newport Charter Yacht Show mix, since many can have updates to décor and amenities, crew, central agents and more. Examples of yachts returning from 2022 are the 110’ M/Y  Freedom , represented by Yacht Connexion, and the 85’ M/Y  Lexington  represented by Blue Oceans Yachting. “I’m always excited to see ‘new’ yachts at the Show and meet new crew,” said Carney, “but networking with returning crew and central agents helps build relationships. There are so many moving parts in a private yacht charter that it helps to know with whom I’m working.”

During the Newport Charter Yacht Show, the public is invited to check out exhibiting vendors along the “checkerboard patio” outside  Belle’s Café  at Safe Harbor Newport Shipyard. Vendors will be open daily Tuesday, June 20 through Thursday, June 22 from 10am-5pm. Those vendors include presenting sponsor  The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation

KVH Industries ;

Several  special events  will highlight each yacht’s unique character.

Sponsors and vendors join brokers and agents in a lively Yacht Hop that features each yacht in “full entertainment mode,” and the American Yacht Charter Association (AYCA) holds its annual meeting and signature informational seminars for brokers, captains, and crew alike.

The Newport Charter Yacht Show is proud to partner with all its sponsors, including presenting sponsor The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism, Investments & Aviation. Alexseal Yacht Coatings and KVH Industries will sponsor the Monday evening Captain & Crew Briefing and Cocktail Party along with  Bridge Liquors  who is the bar sponsor.  Dockwalk  magazine is a Crew Competition sponsor along with the  US Superyacht Association ,  Narragansett Beer , Aere Marine Group,  lululemon Newport , and  Young Designs Floral Studio  

Shoreside Support  will sponsor the Chef Competition and  SKYLINK Tek   will return as the Show’s audio visual/sound partner. AkzoNobel will sponsor the closing party and Crew Competition Awards night, and  Denison Yachting  will sponsor the Herman Pundt Best Yacht Hop award, which will be presented during the closing party.  Yachting   and  Dockwalk   magazines are the show’s official media partners, and the  Newport Marriott   is the show’s preferred hotel.
