Nantucket Yacht Charters
Nantucket is one of the most exclusive yacht charter destinations in New England. Nantucket may just be 26 miles from the mainland, but the exclusive island feels like another world. Yacht charter guests flock here throughout the summer to enjoy the island’s laid-back comforts, pristine beaches, and classic New England charm. Whether you prefer quiet shoreside excursions, boutique shopping, or want to explore lively bars in the Historic District, Nantucket is a must-visit destination on any yacht charter in New England.
The island may be best known for its dune-lined beaches. In fact, more than 90 miles of sandy, windswept beaches form a rim around the island. Spend a day soaking up the sun, or taking to one of the island’s legendary beach walks. Many charterers come too for the quaintness of Nantucket’s Historic District, which is home to classic chowder houses, artisan shops, and live music venues. Plus, there’s much to explore by yacht – from nearby Tuckernuck Island and the Nantucket Sound, to Martha’s Vineyard and Cape Cod.

Things to Do and See on Nantucket
- Explore the Island on Bike
With more than 35 miles of bike trails, Nantucket is best explored via bicycle. A few favorite routes: Take the Madaket Road Path from the historic downtown to Madaket Beach or Eel Point. At Eel Point, you’ll be rewarded with amazing views of Nantucket Sound at the 100-acre preserve, and Madaket is a beautiful dune-backed outpost.
- See the Nantucket Lighthouses
Nantucket is home to three historic lighthouses, each more beautiful than the last. Great Point Lighthouse is a must-see. Built in 1818, the stately white-stone tower sits in the lush Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Reserve. Sankaty Head Lighthouse is another beauty, which offers breathtaking views of the Atlantic.
- Miacomet Golf Course
Why not try some golfing while on your yacht charter? Nantucket is home to several public and private golf clubs, but one of the finest is Miacomet Golf Course. With its lush fairways and fast greens, the course looks like a Scottish links-style course. The course is challenging, yet playable, and there are tee options for all skill levels. Bottom line: If you want to hit the links, head to Miacomet.
- Take the Sconset Bluff Walk
The Sconset Bluff Walk (or Cliff Walk, as its commonly called) puts on a show of Nantucket’s natural beauty. The path departs from Siasconset, a quaint village, out to Sankaty Head Lighthouse and hugs the Atlantic coast. It’s known for being lined with cedar-shingled cottages that are covered in roses in the summer months. The walk is leisurely, and the views can’t be missed.
