The top 5 places to visit by yacht in North America this year

From its bustling West coast to the dynamic East coast, North America has plenty to offer as a superyacht destination. Why not take your time exploring the cruising hotspots of Miami, the lush landscapes of Newport or soaking in the tranquil scenery of Alaska this year? Here we share our top 5 destinations to visit by yacht in North America.

Miami, Florida

Seen as one of the most vibrant cities in North America, Miami is truly a cultural melting pot. Offering an intoxicating mix of glamorous lifestyle, world-class cuisine with a Latin heartbeat and sun-soaked beaches, Miami is an ideal cruising hotspot for superyachts. Known for its all-year-round balmy tropical weather, the city has several marinas and harbours to chose from. The city features everything you’d want on a luxurious getaway, from
designer shopping to renowned night clubs and five-star spas.

Newport, Rhode Island

A classic yachting destination, Newport offers some of the most beautiful landscapes and seascapes in the country. The rugged coastlines and rocky isles have been home to sailors for centuries. Best known for its America’s Cup heritage, visiting this destination by superyacht is a definite must. Enjoy the historic mansions of Newport and marina before cruising to the equally alluring islands of Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket, each of which boasts its own charm and appeal. From there it is only a short cruise to Cape Cod, a quieter region known from its lush countryside and rich history.

Inside Passage, Alaska

The most remote area of them all, Alaska is known for its unrivalled raw and natural beauty. Its isolation is one of its most appealing points, and as the majority of the state’s coastline is not accessible by road, it is the perfect destination to explore by water. The wilderness here is home to everything from eagles to bears, whales and seals. The Inside Passage is known for its frozen forests, tremendous glaciers and snow-topped mountains, which serve as the ideal backdrop for stunning sunsets. Be sure to stop by Admiralty Island, the largest National Park in North America and the historic town of Haines.
