Sailing in Newport - An Experience You'll Never Forget!

We Can't Wait to Have You Aboard!

McCurdy Sailing - Our 36 foot sailboat Hurrah

Book a private yacht charter with McCurdy Sailing in beautiful Newport, Rhode Island.  Sit back, relax and enjoy your sail aboard our 36' sloop Hurrah, as our licensed, experienced, and very knowledgeable Captain takes you on a sailing tour of the east passage of Narragansett Bay. You will see and hear about many historically significant and spectacular sights, such as the former Kennedy estate - Hammersmith Farm, Clingstone, and the Rose Island Lighthouse.


Take the helm or just enjoy the ride as your trip takes you through Newport Harbor, the sailing capital of the world, where you will see many beautiful sailboats, mega yachts, unique racing boats, and historic America's Cup sailboats.  

'Hurrah' comfortably seats 6 adults in the cockpit, with a bimini and dodger for those who prefer shade. If you are in for the ultimate thrill, walk out to the bow and feel the full force of the salt air and water. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch, champagne, or any refreshments you desire.

What People Are Saying



This was the first time I did a private charter instead of a group sail on a larger boat. I do not think I will ever go back to buying tickets for a group sail.

Flying Sail


We had such a wonderful time on this 2-hour sail with Captain Dave! It was the highlight of our trip to Newport! We highly recommend it!

Sailboat Bow


Absolutely the best experience. Dave was hands down the most amazing captain and made the entire experience so memorable. Do yourself a favor and book a ride with McCurdy's.

"To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind, and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor."
