We hauled out this week at the Newport Shipyard for our routine maintenance. We should be back in the water by mid-November and onward to Antigua for the annual Antigua Charter Show. It has been a number of years since we attended the Antigua Charter Show so we are looking forward to showing the charter brokers that we still look brand new!
Whisper's crew thoroughly enjoys helping our guests make the most of their luxury charter experience, whether for corporate or private charter. The feedback we receive really does make it all worthwhile; we'd like to share some of these comments with you. And we look forward to adding yours to the list!

Ted Hood, Portsmouth, RI
- "Magnificent sailing, sophisticated interior."
Peder Eidsegaard, London, England
- "Whisper is a vessel of her kind. All aspects, all details have been thought after and it shows. It has been some years since I sailed on such a near to perfection vessel. I would particularly like to mention the classical and very delicate taste of the owner with decoration and aspect on all and little details. Whisper could be the perfect ambassador of what we appreciate in America: mightiness, refinement and sensibility."
Oliver Payen, France
This winter we have had the opportunity to entertain charter guests in and around Grenada and The Grenadines. This is a wonderful sailing area full of beautiful islands, clear blue waters and amazing people. It is fairly easy to fly into St. Lucia, sail south through The Grenadines and disembark in Grenada. The opposite direction works too!
"Meatless Monday In St. Maarten" - Tuscan Kale Veggie Burger with a Butternut Squash Puree
One of the amazing entrees that charter guests can enjoy is a pan seared mahi mahi with a fennel citrus slaw basil vinaigrette and pistachio dust
On a clear blue sky day in St. Maarten the crew of Whisper took some beautiful photography of the surrounding area. We hope you enjoy!
Leaving the friendly town of Newport on our way to our winter port of St. Maarten. We hope to have you onboard as charter guests this winter!
We have set sail from Newport. Thank you to the Newport Shipyard and everybody else who keeps us looking brand new year in and year out. It was a fun and successful summer charter season supporting Project Puffin. We hope to see some of you on charter this winter in the Caribbean.

Whisper Contributing a Portion of Charter Fees to Project Puffin
This summer, the 116-foot sailing yacht Whisper will be giving back to the New England region in which she charters by donating a portion of her season’s sales to Project Puffin, an organization that protects the rare seabirds and their historic nesting islands off the coast of Maine. Started by the National Audubon Society in 1973, the project is designed to restore the puffin population and educate people on the plethora of environmental issues that are threatening the seabird and could, in turn, lead to their endangerment.
Whisper will be participating in the 2015 Newport Charter Yacht Show from June 22-25, after which she will be available for bookings in the New England Region through early September. The luxury yacht charters from $60,000 per week (plus APA expenses) and will donate one percent of all the season’s charter sales to Project Puffin. Contact your favorite charter broker to inquire.
