Many a wedding proposal has been made from the bow pulpit of our 54' Alden Yawl, Mariner. It doesn't get more romantic than that!

Weddings Weddings

Looking for a unique, refined and romantic venue for your small Newport, Rhode Island wedding? Look no further than the aft deck of the lovely M/V Pam, our 62' custom power yacht built in 1921. Ideal for wedding parties of up to 25, her fine classic lines, pine and holly decks and gleaming brightwork will take you and your guests away to a bygone era. Allow the enduring spirit of the M/V Pam seep into your wedding day. Elopement is optional on any of our yachts!

Transport the bride and groom from your waterfront wedding site to anywhere in the Newport Harbor via M/V Fawan, reminiscent of the gilded age. Built in 1911, she is a romantic gondola style glass cabin launch that will create timeless wedding pictures and lasting memories.

Rose Island Clambake/Lunch Clambake

Enjoy an exclusive clambake and/or Ecotour for your group of 2 - 50 on a private island in Narragansett Bay. Let us whisk you and your group out to beautiful Rose Island aboard M/V Pam or M/V Fawan.

If your group is inquisitive and has an interest in Maritime and Yachting History then we have the perfect day-long on the water activity for you!

We'll take you via your own private luxury "water taxi", our 62' custom commuter yacht Pam, out to The Museum of Yachting at Fort Adams. From there we'll put the throttle down, just as they did in the roaring '20s when Pam was in her heyday on Lake Michigan, and make our way up the Narragansett Bay to visit the Herreshoff Marine Museum and America's Cup Hall of Fame in Bristol, Rhode Island. When your tour of this world class museum is completed, we'll have cocktails and hors d' oeuvres awaiting you back aboard M/V Pam just a few steps away at the Herreshoff's private dock.
