WELCOME TO CLASSIC CRUISES OF NEWPORT!
Classic Cruises of Newport is the local favorite for day and evening sail and motor yacht cruises. Enjoy spectacular views of Newport Harbor, Narragansett Bay and the excitement of the Sailing Capital of America.
Scenic sails aboard our 72' schooner Madeleine allow you to experience the 19th century charm and style of a Bermuda rig schooner. Madeleine is available for Morning Glory Sails, Scenic Day Sails and Champagne Sunset Sails.
Coastal cruises on our 1929 classic motor yacht Rum Runner II evoke the intrigue and luxury of her smuggling days along the waterfront. Rum Runner II is available daily for Lighthouses & Mimosas, East Passage Express Tours and Smugglers Cocktail Cruises.
You can purchase tickets for a public cruise OR privately charter the sailing yacht Madeleine, or the classic motor yacht Rum Runner II - for private events such as corporate outings, wedding events, class reunions or birthdays. There is no pleasure like that given by the sea, sun, and wind and no better yachts to experience it on than the local favorites. Our sailing cruises make every Newport vacation or weekend getaway a memorable one!

Stately lady, wonderful crew
We were lucky enough to take a sunset cruise on an evening with spectacular color and impact. I can’t imagine a better viewing point than aboard the handsome Madeleine, being treated so well by Captain Pete D’A and the support crew and commentary. Well worth it!
