Yachting is a strong facet of the Newport lifestyle which has been a longtime mecca for boating enthusiasts. Living in a seaside city like Newport means there is constant beauty around you and always something to do. Dining at Newport’s finest restaurants like Forty 1 North and the Mooring give you a front row seat to Newport’s historic waterfront which is home to a plethora of glamorous mega-yachts and classic sailing vessels.
Our dear friend Mark Elliot owns and operates the International Yacht Collection which is a global firm specializing in the sale and purchase of new and vintage yachts from around the world. Our own fearless leader Libby spent 3 years working under Mark at IYC where she cultivated her love for precise sea craftsmanship. While Libby eventually moved on to real estate, our team still loves the yachting world.
Alas, we’re so lucky to live in this wonderful international yachting hub- meeting worldly people and learning about other cultures.
