Legendary 12 Meters provide the perfect venue for:

Family Celebrations: Say “Happy Birthday,” “Happy Anniversary,” or “Congratulations” to someone special with a cruise aboard a 12 Meter. Our 12 Meter yachts provide a memorable venue for celebrations including Graduation Parties, Family Reunions, College or High School Reunion, Alumni Get-togethers, Retirement Celebration, and much more. Charter multiple yachts and add friendly, family competition to your event!


Wedding Events: The perfect venue for a pre-wedding get together, bachelor or bachelorette party, rehearsal dinner party, or wedding ceremony is aboard an America’s Cup 12 Meter yacht.

Yacht Club Events: Create your club’s most memorable sailing event of the season! Have a full-out racing regatta with two to nine America’s Cup yachts or plan a leisurely cruise. Participation is encouraged but never required. If racing is your pleasure we can also provide a committee boat to officiate your races or spectator yachts for those who just want to watch the action. Bring the “twelves” to your locale or sail in Newport’s world famous racing waters. An event with 12 Meter Charters is sure to be one that you will want to include in your sailing season every year!

Excursions: We create unique “escapes” from everyday life. Try a “12 Meter Getaway!”

For example: Escape with a Newport to Block Island sail and overnight excursion.

  • Take one or more 12 Meter yachts.
  • End the day at Block Island.
  • Tour the island, enjoy fresh seafood, and stay at a Bed and Breakfast.
  • Sail back to Newport the next day.

Let 12 Meter Charters customize a unique and memorable sailing experience for you!
