14 Great Reasons Your Client Should Cruise the New England Islands

May 26, 2016

1.)They may not own a sailboat anymore but love exploring via the water.
Back in the 1960’s Luther Blount, founder of BSSA, said his goal was to make travelers feel like they were cruising on a friend’s yacht.  Today, with less than 83 passengers on every trip, we still aim to do that.  We dock where private yachts do, onboard the key word is “casual” and our travelers share a love of the water.
2.) They’ve always wanted to see Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket but that means long ferry rides over, high hotel costs with limited availability, and no personal transportation.
The Vineyard of course is a presidential hot spot that attracts many of the rich and famous.  Bonus:  They’ll also see Newport, Block Island, New Bedford and Cuttyhunk.
3.) They’ve always wanted to tour the infamous Newport Mansions
The 19th century summer homes of the rich and famous await. Back in 1974 , the Great Gatsby was filmed in one of the mansions…hello there old sport! 
4.) They’d like the chance to sail on legendary America’s Cup Yachts in Narragansett Bay
Sailing 68′ classic l2 Meter yachts…pencil this into your bucket list.
5.) They love sunsets and listening to local musicians perform
It’s a wonderful delight!
6.) They are lobster lovers.
Get your bibs ready, “lobstah” will be on the menu every day.
7.) They’d love a chance to relax and explore on Block island, even participating in a nature kayak tour with a local guide!
Voted one of America’s “Prettiest Islands,” Block Island is not to be missed. 
8.) A BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle) policy is right up their alley.
No bar tab at the end of your cruise and we provide the mixers. Awesome right?
9.) Visiting our country’s most important whaling port of the 19th century intrigues them. They also love museums.
Ever heard of Moby-Dick? The city is featured in the book.
10.) They would enjoy a classic New England Clambake on the top deck.
Great to watch, even greater to eat.
11.) They’d love an exclusive tour of a local oyster farm.
Blount brings its passengers to the heart of a place.  We’ve organized a special tour with a local New England oyster farm and a meeting with Revolution lobster. Meet the lobstermen and oyster farmers that make your fresh seafood meals possible. Prepare to be amazed.
12.) They want to feel like they are getting AWAY on vacation
Enjoy quiet islands like Cuttyhunk and Nantucket, with iconic Cape Cod charm. Laid back island life will make them feel like they are truly getting away.
13.) They’d like to share their experiences with crew and fellow passengers, making great friendships onboard.
It’s all about the people on a Blount cruise.
14.)They like cruising but want to go beyond it.  A small ship cruise fits that bill.
Their ship has just come in.
