Bareboat Sailing Charters adds to fleet

Bareboat Sailing Charters in Newport (R.I.) said its charter fleet expanded with two new sailing catamarans.

The 44-foot Helia cats are available in a three- or four-cabin version. Built by Fountaine-Pajot, their features include a large settee and a complete galley, making them suitable for seven to nine passengers.

Amenities on the Helia cats include twin 40-hp Volvo diesel engines, wheel steering, an autopilot, a shore power system, many cabin fans, a refrigerator, a stove and oven, a microwave, a bimini top, a cockpit shower, GPS color navigation and a 10-foot dinghy with an outboard motor.

The three-cabin Helia cat charters out bareboat at $6,000 a week and the four-cabin cat charters out bareboat at $6,500 a week for sailing and cruising New England, Cape Cod, Long Island Sound and New York.

Other vessels in the sailing fleet offering weekly bareboat chartering from $3,500 to $6,500 are a Jeanneau 40-foot sloop; four Beneteau 42-foot sloops; a Jeanneau 439 sloop; a Jeanneau 44-foot deck salon sloop; a Beneteau 46-foot sloop; a Jeanneau 49-foot deck salon sloop; and three Jeanneau 54-foot deck salon sloops.

The company also charters a 28-foot Zodiac RIB with a 350-hp engine by the week.

The boats are located at Brenton Cove in Newport Harbor.
