Portland Yacht Charter

Portland is the largest city in Maine. Set on a peninsula extending into Casco Bay, the town is organized into three distinct neighborhoods, each with its personality. Because of its central location, Portland is a great place to start and end your Portland Yacht Charter.

The Old Port neighborhood features a working waterfront, galleries, unique shops, and award-winning restaurants. The West End neighborhood is famous for its architecture and boasts some of Portland’s largest historic homes, such as the Victoria Mansion museum. 

The Arts District is a few blocks from the waterfront. It is home to many museums and art galleries and has many contemporary music and performance venues and fine and ethnic dining choices.

Portland International Jetport (PWM) is approximately 10 minutes from the Fore Points Marina. So, you can start and end your Maine yacht charter from the Fore Points Marina in Portland.
