Charter itineraries in the Northeast and New England typically include Montauk and Sag Harbor on New York’s Long Island, Mystic Seaport in Connecticut, Newport in Rhode Island, and Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard in Massachusetts. Another great option is Plimoth Plantation, a living history museum in Plymouth, Massachusetts. (Yes, near the famous rock of Mayflower fame.) Actors spend their days in a re-created Colonial English community built from research into life during the 1600s. Visitors can interact with everyone from Wampanoag mothers to Pilgrim farmers before visiting the Mayflower II, a full-scale reproduction of the ship that brought the first Pilgrims to America in 1620. Given the spaciousness of today’s yachts, the Mayflower II seems downright tiny at 106 feet length overall, especially for more than 100 people on an Atlantic crossing.
