Why We Like This Place

  • Newport is the quintessential New England town. With a quaint downtown dotted with shops and restaurants, cobblestone streets, charming coastal cottages, and a harbor fit for a postcard, Newport embodies everything an Atlantic seaside town should be…and Newport Yacht Center is right at the heart of it.
  • Ceremonies and receptions are held directly on the waterfront. The Sunset Terrace looks out over the bustling, picturesque harbor and iconic Newport Bridge. There’s an elegant climate-controlled tent, and the expansive patio also features coastal-chic teak furniture on which to lounge and enjoy the sights.
  • There are great opportunities to add character to your celebration. The staff at the Yacht Center is able to arrange a number of fun additions, like arriving at your ceremony by boat, a rehearsal dinner clambake, or a bridal party sailing excursion.
