NESC boats and yachts

NESC teaches and charters on various boats. Our fleet is made up of a J22 sailboat, and our cruising yachts include: a Beneteau 39, a Beneteau 40, a Bavaria Vision 46, a Jeanneau 51, a Hanse 548, and an Astrea 42.

The J22 is designed and built in New England. It offers strength, stability and speed unmatched in keelboats of its size. The J22 is tiller driven to enhance the boat’s reaction time and the large rudder provides a light feel, translating into a forgiving and precise helmsmanship. The J22 has a sail plan that gives the boat speed in light to medium wind but that can easily be reefed if the winds increase.

The Beneteau 39 is a beautiful yacht that ensures exceptional stability and comfort at sea. These yachts are spacious, solidly built and move very well in all wind conditions. Pretty Girl offers great space above and below deck with three spacious cabins equally sized and two heads. Other features include helm cockpit, large bimini and spray hood. Pretty Girl is ideal for a family of six or 2-3 couples, but with the convertible settee this yacht can sleep eight. This is a beautiful yacht model that you will truly enjoy cruising on.

The Vision 46 is made up of brilliantly conceived details evident as you step into the cockpit. Every instrument essential for navigation and control is within easy reach. With a perfect view of the deck and sail trim, the Vision 46 can be sailed with your fingertips. The layout features 3 cabins and 2 heads. This yacht includes a convertible settee and is ideal for a family of six or 2-3 couples.

The Jeanneau 51 Yacht benefits from the latest innovations that have made Jeanneau Yachts so successful: unequaled level of finish, unrivaled quality of life aboard and maximum ease of handling. Living spaces have been carefully studied, with meticulous attention to detail and the use of fine materials, to contribute to an excellent cruising experience and a luxurious lifestyle on board.

The Hanse 548 is the crème de la crème of the luxury yachts, providing an excellent sailing experience with coveted Hanse handling. Beautiful, fast and comfortable, the 548 offers all the amenities that one would expect of a quality luxury yacht. Modern hull shape and interior build a sublime contrast to the natural materials and warm hues. The salon has the look and feel of an elegant lounge.

The 2022 Astrea 42 is ideal for instructional and crewed charters as well as performance ocean sailing. Boasting a high degree of comfort, the Astrea 42 has a low center of gravity to afford maximum safety and with a generous sail area.
