As most superyachts start rushing to their established cruising grounds in the Mediterranean, some chose to stray off the beaten path and discover new destinations such as New England, a region that has recently started rising in popularity.
Offering of a blend of modern civilisation with pittoresque villages and breathtaking views, New England offers a variety of cruising destinations for your yacht charter starting from Newport, a historic seaside village dotted with sandy coves and lighthouses.
Hosting one of Worth Avenue Yachts' offices, Newport is also home to some of the most opulent mansions on the East Coast drawn to the city by its picture-perfect avenues, historical buildings and mouthwatering seafood restaurants. Close to Newport is also Block Island, known for its laid-back lifestyle, historic lighthouses and its stunning Black Rock beach, perfectly suited for a hiking expedition.
From Block Island, your yacht could easily reach Montauk, an up-and-coming neighbourhood located right near the Hamptons, drawing in an increasingly fashionable crowd with its lobster restaurants and beaches.
Going the other way from Block Island, yacht charters could also continue at Martha's Vineyard's Edgartown, an exclusive enclave nested amongst some of the most expensive homes in America. Perhaps one of New England's most popular destinations, Martha's vineyard offers a fantastic shopping and food scene.
In the immediate vicinity of Martha's Vineyard is the island of Nantucket, worth staying at for near two days to explore its restaurants, shopping and beaches as well as cycle around the island or kayak in the harbour.
Amongst one of the key sites to visit during a yacht charter in New England is also the city of Boston, one of America's most vibrant cities, which can also serve a stopping point for your trip due to its international airport.
Thankfully, Worth Avenue Yachts has a fleet ideally positioned in the region to explore New England during a yacht charter. One option available this summer would, for example, be the 49-meter Three Forks, delivered in 2009 by Christensen. Accommodating up to 12 guests in 6 cabins including a full beam master cabin and VIP suite, Three Forks boasts an elevator and large entertaining areas.
Another option in the region would also be the 43-meter Far From It, a 142ft yacht built by Richmond in 2008 and refitted in 2016. Accommodating up to 10 guests in 5 cabins, she boasts a hot tub amongst her amenities and charters from $121,500 per week. The 36-meter Palmer Johnson, BW and 28-meter Anndrianna are also based in the region and could also be tremendous options to explore New England this summer.

After a growth period of 20-30 meters and megayachts, which is even closer to the recession, there was a short period for high demand for medium-sized superyachts.The market for 40-60 meter yachts, the last of which began to grow before the recession began, has also recently begun to gain momentum, as owners are looking for yachts in order to switch to them with growing disposable incomes. Indeed, if several years earlier it was expected that yachts in this range would be traded at 30-40% at the asking price, this gap narrowed to 25-30% in recent quarters.Shipyards, primarily known for their 20-30-meter yachts, are also expanding their ranges to 40-60 meters in order to keep customers who want to grow in size. For example, Sanlorenzo, which for decades focused on 20-30-meter yachts, put at the beginning of this year its newest flagship - the 64-meter Attila.Atilla is a 64.25m luxury yacht, built by Sanlorenzo and delivered in 2019. Her top speed is 18.0kn and her power comes from two 2375.0hp Caterpillar 3516-C diesel engines. She can accommodate up to 12 people with 18 crew members.Yacht was designed by Officina Italiana Design, and the interior design was created by Francesco Paszkowski.

The Magnum 60 Furia was launched in 2001, designed by Magnum Marine and Ceo Catherine Theodoli. They say that this is the most successful of the Magnum models.Back in 2001, the 120-kilometer 60 Furia Magnum was named the fastest yacht of this size in the world and after extensive repairs at the Perini Navi Hammer shipyard reached higher speeds.Changes include new air intakes in the engine compartment along with a customizable display on the control panel.The new Magnum 60 concept is attractive to the original design, but much more pleasing to the eye, with distinctive details throughout the American style of the 50s. The owner’s room has individual storage solutions on either side of the room to ensure clean space.Marnix Hoekstra from Vripak says that they kept the overall layout and tuning of the boat, but improved it where it was possible, for example, expanding the companion from the saloon in the middle to the double and twin cabins. They also added daylight, and in the interior they used the same tree that was used in the construction of the boat, painting it in matt white.
