Exploring Newport

As a Sunday afternoon approached, a group of Power & Motoryacht staff decided to take a little Newport [Rhode Island] harbor cruise. We headed to her berth at the Newport Shipyard, threw off the lines, and snaked our way off the chock-a-block docks, past some shining megayachts, and out into the harbor.

The Cruisers’s IPS pod propulsion provided great control as we nudged her nose into various coves and sneaked up close to particularly beautiful boats in the mooring field. Even in this harbor filled with traditional boats, the 41’s contemporary profile drew more than a few admiring glances. With such a large group we decided to have a caterer onboard. The setup of the lower galley and upper entertainment areas worked perfectly.
