Marine News from the Great Lakes


Published: Monday, April 1, 2019

We’re pleased to announce the opening of our two new bases in Newport, Rhode Island, and Lake Champlain, New York, in partnership with Navtours. Both of these two new cruising destinations offer summer sailing in some of the most beautiful destinations in the United States.

Newport, a historic sailing town, is your gateway to exploring the vacation havens of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the Hamptons among other northeastern destinations.

Lake Champlain is a beautiful deep water lake surrounded by the Green Mountains of Vermont and the Adirondacks of NY. Our base in Plattsburgh City Marina hosts some of the finest facilities to start your sailing adventure.

Dream Yacht Charter founder, Loic Bonnet, said: “Our investment in the US 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.”

Yanik Aubé, partner at Navtours, said: “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.

“Our base in Newport’s yachting village, where sailing is a way of life, will feature brand new catamarans. 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 became the largest yacht charter company in the world at the end of last year, with the largest fleet (+1000 boats) across the most destinations (+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.
