America's Cup Boats
Rhode Island Built

If you are interested in a new yacht, look into our history. Rhode Island is rich with boat building history and having hosted the America's Cup in Newport for most of the last century, it is not surprising that the boat builders in the area around Newport have developed a level of boat building proficiency not found anywhere else in the world. Big boats or small, power, sail, or custom, you'll find that our boats are built to a higher standard, with technologically advanced processes and materials that make our boats lighter and faster yet more durable.

Newport Harbor

A Look at Newport Harbor

Geographically advantaged as well, Rhode Island offers some of the most desirable cruising and racing waters in the world. Our finest boating resources include Narragansett Bay, Long Island Sound and the Atlantic Ocean which are easily accessible and our harbors lay claim to deep, protected and user friendly channels and waterways - Newport Harbor is a perfect example!

Several boatbuilders in Rhode Island have banded together to create a unique program to attract boat buyers to the area. Known as the East Bay Economic Initiative, this strong union has taken the long term approach to the maritime industries in Rhode Island and have used their resources as a group to take advantage of marketing and training opportunities.
