Join us this summer and let us sail you away on a ultimate sailing adventure aboard Sea Witch with options to swim, kayak, or fish! Come experience the beauty & history of Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, The Elizabeth Island & Cape Cod. Enjoy the picturesque views of the region’s popular coastline with lighthouses, historical homes, wonderful beaches and the colorful clay cliffs. Relax and bask in the sun listening to the wind and waves or get involved hoisting the sails and grinding the winches arrr!! Sea Witch is a luxurious 58 foot LOA Pearson Ketch and is stunningly beautiful when all four of her sails are set. Her 37 ton weight and deep draft keel provide a very smooth sail. Sea Witch was built in 1981 in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. She is a comfortable cruising yacht and has circumnavigated the world. Based in Martha's Vineyard, Ma from mid-June to mid-September offering 2, 4 or 8 hour daily charters, or term charters from 2 nights to weekly charters. In the winter months, we relocate to the Caribbean and offer private daily charters in St. Thomas or St. John, US Virgin Islands (USVI) and weekly charters to USVI & the amazingly beautiful, more rustic British Virgin Islands (BVI’s). Celebrate your special event on Sea Witch. If it's your birthday, anniversary, surprise engagement, bachelor or bachelorette party, intimate wedding, company outing or just a get together with friends or family, Captain John and Susan Stephenson will host your event. Whatever your preference, Sea Witch can offer something for everyone!! We look forward to having you all aboard!!

A 5 day stay on the Sea Witch enjoying jumping off the yacht and enjoying relaxing meals onboard. We avoided the crowds, lines for ferries and loved being rocked asleep each night on the water. Captain John and Susan made us feel like family.
