Newport Runabout

34' Motor Yacht built of cold-molded Spanish Cedar and Mahogany

Any of our vessels can be powered with diesel, electric, or hybrid propulsion.

The Newport Runabout delivers the experience of speed, agility, and comfort.  Her form keeps her dry while slicing through waves.  Shallow draft delivers greater accessibility to hidden coves and beaches.

Her amenities include comfortable seating, for you and your twelve closest friends, upon cushions wrapped in the latest Sunbrella® fabrics.  A hot & cold deck shower is located near the swim platform and transom door.  A full head with sink, shower, and storage lockers is located just below deck.  The refrigerator/freezer is located in the cockpit by the wet bar to chill your Martini ingredients.  The helm station features a nicely upholstered double-width mahogany chair, from which to view an assortment of the finest navigational gadgets and engine controls.  The stereo with CD/MP3 player will come in handy while orchestrating your own jazz festival, practicing your Puccini, or just listening to the latest news from Lake Wobegon.  In short, much is offered to make this boat a true 'turn-key' design.

Classic American style is revived with a design inspired by the days of Fitzgerald and Hemingway.  Graceful lines and subtle curves, accented with varnished mahogany and polished stainless steel.  Her hardware is streamlined and unimposing.  The Runabout is comfortable whether dockside in Manhattan, cruising off Cuttyhunk, or beachside in the Bahamas.

All great stories contain travel, adventure, and a happy ending.  The Newport Runabout could be the start of your great story...
