Sailing catamaran

A couple of us will be visiting Newport in August. We wanted to do sailing but we were looking for something different. We want to sail on a catamaran but I have been searching online but didn't find anything. I found a place call Privateer but I think they are closed since there are no contact info. Can someone from the area please tell me if there is such thing as private chartering a catamaran for just like a 2 hr cruise or are catamarans just privately owned Thanks!

Catamarans are not that popular here. I don't know of any charters but you can look on www.GONEWPORT.com for listings of all the charter companies in the area and what they offer.

Why a cat? There are some really special boats that you can charter (not sure which do private charters) but beautiful wooden boats or large schooners and a number of actual America's Cup Winners.

I emailed the flyer a few weeks ago as my friends and I plan to go there in July and my husband and I were on their catamaran years ago but they said they're not going to Newport this year.

Emma K, let us know if you find any.
