Step into a world where time seems to slow down, and the spirit of maritime heritage comes to life. Nestled within the vibrant waters of Newport, Rhode Island, awaits the Ladybird—a captivating embodiment of tradition and elegance.

With her graceful silhouette stretching 32 feet on deck and a stunning 42-foot in overall length, she stands as a testament to timeless craftsmanship and nautical ingenuity. These boats dominated the lobster fisherie before the marine engine started to change the shape of the boats into what is now known the Downeast hull. Settle into the embrace of her spacious deck, where up to 17 guests can gather to embark on a voyage unlike any other. Yet, it's in the company of a more intimate group—ideally 12 passengers—that the Ladybird truly shines, offering a tailored experience of comfort and camaraderie. Exclusive to private charters, the Ladybird invites you to chart a course through Newport's enchanting waters, where each sail unfolds as a bespoke adventure. Whether you opt for a leisurely hour and 45-minute excursion or choose to extend your journey to three hours and 45 minutes, every moment promises to be as unforgettable as the last. Indulge in the freedom to choose, with charter prices reflecting the ebb and flow of the week. From the vibrant energy of weekends to the tranquil allure of weekdays, the Ladybird offers an experience suited to every schedule and preference. So, come aboard and let the Ladybird be your guide as you embark on a voyage through history, where the echoes of the past mingle with the promise of new horizons.
