Dream Yacht Charter opens in Rhode Island and NY

Publish date:

Dream Yacht Charters are opening of two new bases in Newport, R.I., and Lake Champlain, N.Y., in partnership with Navtours.

Both cruising destinations offer summer sailing.

Newport, a historic sailing town, is a gateway to exploring Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the Hamptons among other Northeastern destinations.

Lake Champlain is a deep water lake surrounded by the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks of N.Y.

“Our investment in the U.S. market continues to grow as we recognize the importance of providing close-to-home sailing destinations for our North American customers, as well as introducing the regions of Newport and Lake Champlain to our global audience,” said Dream Yacht Charter founder Loic Bonnet in a statement.

“Navtours is thrilled to announce the partnership with Dream Yacht Charter in the opening of the Newport base and as new partners for the established sailing region of Lake Champlain,” said Navtours partner Yanik Aubé.

“Our base in Newport’s yachting village, where sailing is a way of life, will feature brand new catamarans,” said Aubé. “Our other base is in the full-service Plattsburgh City Marina, centrally located on Lake Champlain. Both cruising regions offer friendly people, gastronomy, glamour, breathtaking scenery and beautiful anchorages, making both cruising areas perfect for a memorable summer vacation.”

Dream Yacht Charter claimed that it became the largest yacht charter company in the world at the end of last year, with 1,000 boats across more than 50 bases.

Next Stage Capital recently made a long-term investment in Dream Yacht Charter alongside cruise catamarans manufacturer Fountaine Pajot. This investment provides the company with a secure platform for sustainable growth, according to the company.
