Sailing, clam bakes and lighthouses are as synonymous with New England as the Kennedys are with political fame. And now, with Bavaria Yachts’ newest location in Mystic, Connecticut, adventure and fun-filled destinations are just a cruise away. From the surf-lapped beaches of Montauk to the historic lighthouses in the Southern Narragansett Bay, the charm of the New England cruising ground is nothing short of enchanting.
Of course, Mystic provides great access to numerous world-famous cruising destinations like Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, and Newport, Rhode Island. But with so many sailing destinations available from Mystic, we’ve dedicated this blog to highlighting just a few of our slightly-lesser-known favorites.
Here it’s all about the romantic cliffs, fresh salt air, and the call of the ocean. Montauk’s restaurant scene makes this peninsula even more appetizing with tantalizing culinary delights. When cruising around the bays, make sure you stop to enjoy two of our favorite spots:
A straight-from-the-beach kinda place, the sushi and juicy lamb burgers are highlights. Artisanal beer flows freely, as does the music. 2095 Montauk Highway, Montauk, NY [MAP].
Bavaria Yachts proudly took center stage for the 1st Annual Annapolis Spring Boat Show, brought to you by the same folks that put on THE boat show of the year each October in Annapolis. The turnout was tremendous for all three days of the show, and the buzz around Bavaria continues to grow with each visitor. We were proud to hear consistent comments like “these are by far the best boats we’ve seen in a very long time”. Visitors marveled at the attention to details, the tangible build quality, and the design for ease of sailing and ease of living. (Unfortunately, at the boat show they couldn’t also experience the incredible sailing performance and handling of the Farr Yachts designs). People also marveled that these clearly premium yachts are offered at a similar price point to the mainstream French and American builders (thanks to the ground-breaking Factory Direct model that eliminates middlemen and inventory costs).
