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!

The crew of the Madeleine were friendly efficient and humorous! We’ve never sailed before and had the most picture perfect weather day! They offer several expeditions daily and provide soft drinks. The crew had my husband help lift the sails which was a thrill for him! Can’t wait to return to Newport and maybe try the Rumrunner next!

Wonderful tour and Sail!
