Sightsailer was designed by Newport-based naval architect Yves-Marie Tanton. His client wanted a boat with a big cockpit that was low to the water, fast and fun to sail. With its unique hull design, Sightsailer offers maximum comfort and fun for everyone. Sailing with a capacity of just 16 guests, Sightsailer offers a terrific, intimate sailing experience. Sit back and relax in its fully cushioned cockpit, complete with foot and backrests, or take in the action from its custom stern seats. Enjoy the view as we sail past the sights of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay or take the wheel and discover the thrill of sailing! U.S. Coast Guard Certified for 16 guests. Also available for private charter.
