These four yachts will take you to the classic charter destination of Maine.

Zoom, Zoom, Zoom has one of the highest top speeds — about 25 knots — in her size range. Also, her captain, Mike Finnegan (formerly of the popular 130 Westport Serengeti) is a Maine native.
Launched in 1987 and refit in 2014, Grand Cru has all of the rich interior woodwork and traditional styling that you would expect from a Dutch-built yacht of her vintage. She is, and feels like, a classic.
Bandido has a layout that is ideal for a family with children. The full-beam master is aft near a bunk-berth stateroom for small children, while the other two guest staterooms (a double and a twin) are forward of the salon — giving teens some privacy.
The owner of the 106-foot Lazzara Gale Winds previously owned the 112-foot Westport by the same name, which enjoyed a long and steady run in charter. The 106 just completed a refit inside and out, including new mattresses in all of the guest staterooms.
