9th Wave sailing charters is located at the West end of the "Boardwalk" on Newburyport's historic waterfront. All of our public sails are two and a half hours long. We leave through the mouth of the Merrimack River and sail to no particular destination along the coastline or directly out to sea choosing the best wind angle for maximum speed. As conditions permit we encourage our passengers to take an active role in the handling of the boat: raise the main, trimming the sails or taking the helm under the tutelage of one of our experienced captains. Learn about the region's colorful past and experience a fun and relaxing sail aboard Newburyport's only fast sailing catamaran. Reservations for public sails are strongly suggested; please call
9th Wave is also available for 3hour private charters for everything from corporate outings to private parties. We have USCG certification for up to 48 passengers. You can bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages as you like. We also have a well stocked bar aboard for those of you who prefer a "fortified" beverage. Give us a call and book early for your favored date/s.
