Yachting in New England - Summer 2021

Uncategorized Jul 01, 2021

I recently traveled from Canada to New Jersey for work (yes, some international travel is now possible, especially for those who are fully vaccinated).

This morning I saw this guy on the road...

He reminded me that life is slowly but surely returning to something resembling normal.

As more people are vaccinated, border restrictions are loosened up and we begin to see life as we knew it, returning.

In the U.S., mask-wearing is now optional in most states. Restaurants are beginning to open at a higher capacity.

And the good news for those who work (or want to work) in yachting...

...the New England yachting season is in full swing, and it's busier than ever!

In fact, the Newport Charter Yacht Show went ahead as scheduled this month with many yachts attending. 

So, let me ask you this...

Have you ever had a fresh lobster roll? What about sitting on a dock overlooking a charming fishing town in coastal Maine? Or walking in the surf on a sandy, Cape Cod beach?

While most people hear “superyacht” and think of endless Piña Coladas and turquoise Caribbean seas, the truth is some of the best yachting spots are in New England!

From easy access to world-class cities like Boston to the charm of small town Maine, New England is a hot spot this summer with yachts choosing to explore U.S. destinations and avoid crossing any international borders.

The New England yachting season is during the summer months, from May to September. So if you're ready to make a move, now is the right time to jump in.

Not only can you enjoy that fresh lobster roll - you’ll have a better than usual chance of getting hired quickly due to a yacht crew shortage in the U.S. 


(This might be the last time I ever see international airports this empty.)
